Here is a handy, dandy list of the Perfect Peel’s FAQs:
Q: How does The Perfect Derma Peel compare to other peels?
The Perfect Derma Peel combines powerful ingredients with effective acids to deliver outstanding results after one treatment. This unique formula allows for an increase in lifting of fine lines and wrinkles as well as reducing hyperpigmentation including Melasma. The Perfect Derma Peel is a non-invasive, virtually painless treatment with only a few days of peeling.
Q: How many treatments are necessary for visible improvement?
After one treatment of The Perfect Derma Peel, overall skin tone and complexion will appear smooth, glowing and fresh. Depending on skin conditions, multiple treatments may be necessary for desired results. A series of 2-3 treatments applied once every 4 weeks will allow for optimal results for more severe skin conditions such as Melasma and active acne.
Q: How long will my results last?
As long as the skin is maintained with proper skin care products like The Perfect A, The Perfect C, and The Perfect Bleaching Cream the improved results will last. We recommend 2 – 4 treatments of The Perfect Derma Peel per year to sustain desired results for regular maintenance and rejuvenation.
Q: What skin types respond well to The Perfect Derma Peel?
All skin types (Fitzpatrick 1-6) and all ethnicities are safe to treat and will benefit from The Perfect Derma Peel!
Q: How much peeling should I expect with this treatment?
The amount of peeling will vary for everyone. You may have extensive peeling for up to 10-days, you may have little / no peeling, or anything in-between. There are numerous variables that will help determine how much peeling you experience, ranging from your desired results, your genetics, and your baseline skin-health. (Depending on the quality of your skin at the time of treatment, you may have a large build-up of dead skin-cells waiting to get sloughed off which will peel off quite visibly, or you may exfoliate regularly and not have signifigant dead-skin accumulation which will result in very light sloughing that may be unnoticeable.)
Although there is something very satisfying about seeing your skin actually peel after a peel, please know that even if you experience NO visible peeling — your skin still received the benefit of the active ingredients and antioxidants that comprise the peel. Regardless of peeling, your skin will still benefit from a more even texture, tone, and overall rejuvenation.
Q: What type of pretreatment is required?
The Perfect Derma Peel requires no pretreatment of the skin prior to treatment. Only those patients who use Accutane must stop usage (12) months prior to treatment in order to achieve desired results.
Q: Does The Perfect Derma Peel burn?
The patient may feel a slight stinging or tingling sensation which will subside after 30-60 seconds. Numbing takes place once the first pass of The Perfect Derma Peel solution is applied. A fan or cool breeze may be used for the comfort of the patient.
Q: How long will the application process take?
The Perfect Derma Peel application only takes 15 minutes to administer.
Q: How severe is the peeling and what is the duration of the peeling process?
The amount of peeling skin associated with The Perfect Derma Peel is mainly a sloughing of thin sheets of epidermis skin that begins around day three and generally is completed by day six or seven. (However, the peeling may last up to 10-days.)
Q: What will I look like during The Perfect Derma Peel treatment process and post peel?
Immediately after the peel has been applied the skin will either appear red, like a sunburn, or darker. On day three, peeling will begin. The Perfect Derma Moisturizer will reduce the visibility of peeling by hydrating. By day six or seven the peeling process should be complete. (However, in some cases the peeling may last up to 10-days.)
Q: Will my daily routine be affected after the treatment?
Normal activities may be resumed immediately post peel. We recommend avoiding heavy exercise and excessive sweating during the peeling process.
Q: Can makeup be worn post peel?
The day the peel is applied the patient should not put any make up or other products on his or her face post peel. Makeup may be worn on day 2 of the peeling process.
Q: How many treatments are required?
The Perfect Derma Peel may be applied initially every four weeks if necessary. Thereafter, we recommend once every 3 – 6 months to maintain improved skin results, as well as to prevent further aging and environmental damage.
Q: Can The Perfect Derma Peel be applied to other parts of the body other than the face?
The face, neck, chest and hands are the most commonly applied areas. The Perfect Derma Peel can be applied to other areas of the body, but the process and the results will not necessarily be the same.
Q: Will The Perfect Derma Peel help improve acne and acne scars?
The Perfect Derma Peel formula was designed to help improve various problematic skin conditions, including acne and Melasma. The Perfect Derma Peel helps minimize the damage and scarring that can result from acne. Glutathione helps increase cellular turnover thus reducing stubborn acne scars. A series of peels is required for maximum results.
Q: How many treatments are necessary to resolve acne scars?
Depending on the severity of the scarring, a series of 3-4 peels spaced four weeks apart is recommended for optimal results. The number of treatments will also depend on how vigorously the layers are applied.
Q: How will The Perfect Derma Peel improve my skin?
The Perfect Derma Peel will reduce or eliminate hyper pigmentation, sun damage and Melasma. It will control Acne and reduce Acne Scars. In addition, it will help erase fine lines and wrinkles, reduce enlarged pores and build collagen and elastin for a healthier, firmer complexion. The overall tone, texture and clarity of the skin will be improved.
Q: Will my skin be sensitive post peel?
Skin will be more sensitive during the peeling process until the PH level is replenished.
Q: Is sun exposure permitted post peel?
Sun exposure should be limited if not avoided before and during the peel process to avoid uneven exposure.
Q: When can the patient receive their next treatment of The Perfect Derma Peel?
3-4 weeks after recovery (once the entire peel process is complete.)
Q: Is there an age requirement or restriction to use The Perfect Derma Peel?
Patients range between 13-75 years old. (If you are under the age of 18, you will need an adult with you.) Those with a health condition or concern should consult with their physician prior to scheduling a peel treatment.
