Moving forward, if you would like to schedule an appointment, please go here and book with me or call/text Yolanda at 719-332-2801 and make sure to tell her you want to book with me.

About Face Esthetics

So you’ve decided to get a chemical peel. Before considering a chemical peel, it’s best to have a consultation and or pre chemical peel facial to ensure that you are a good candidate for this treatment. If you are lactating, pregnant or think you may be pregnant, chemical peels are contraindicated. For those of you who are on autoimmune therapies or products, we caution against the use of these medications for 2 days prior to treatment. It is important that you speak to your specialist regarding pausing the use of autoimmune therapies or products for 2 days. It is also extremely important to inform the skincare professional of any medication or ingredient allergies you have.

Pre Chemical Peel:

• Discontinue use of tanning beds at least two weeks prior to a chemical peel. In fact, we advise that you stop using tanning beds altogether because they increase your risk of skin cancer and accelerate visible signs of aging.

• Avoid extensive sun exposure, especially in the 10 days prior to your scheduled chemical peel.

• No facial waxing for 7 days prior to treatment.

• For those of you who are on an acne treatment regimen, you need to stop the use of stop the use of Renova, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, EpiDuo or Ziana five days prior to treatment. If you have been on Accutane, you need to wait 1 year.

• If you are using Retinol products, stop the use of Retin-A (retinol) products or applications for 7-10 days prior to a chemical peel. High percentage alpha hydroxy (AHA) and beta hydroxy (BHA) products should be stopped five days before treatment.

• Always apply a broad spectrum sunscreen daily (at least SPF 30 or higher) and avoid the gym 24 hours prior to a chemical peel.

• Do not use aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (ex. Advil) for at least 7-10 days prior to a chemical peel.

Post Chemical Peel

Once you have undergone your chemical peel, expect to see some changes with your skin prior to getting your final results. Just as there are some instructions you should follow before your chemical peel there are instructions you should follow after your chemical peel to ensure the best possible results

• On post peel day 3, you may experience mild to moderate shedding depending on the depth of chemical peel, the number of layers applied and depth of the chemical peel. There can be dryness and tightness of the skin. Flaking and peeling three days post peel is not uncommon, unless you had a superficial peel. Superficial peels have little to no downtime, so you may not experience shedding.

• You may develop small whiteheads, but please note that this IS NOT A BREAKOUT.

• If you have a lighter skin complexion, you may notice mild redness after a chemical peel.

• Do not peel or pick at the peeling skin. You must allow the skin to flake off naturally. Picking at the peeling skin can cause hyperpigmentation.

• To minimize the side effects of the peel, please use the post procedure kit provided by the skincare professional for 3-5 days or until flaking has stopped.

• Do not apply ice or water to the areas that have been treated. Also, avoid applying makeup on the day of your treatment because the skin needs time to stabilize and rest.

• For the first 48 hours after your chemical peel, do not participate in activities that increase body heat and sweat, such as drinking alcohol, exercise/working out, hot tubs, steam rooms, saunas, hot shower spray, swimming or directing a hair dryer to the treatment area. Internal heating can cause hyperpigmentation.

• Golden Rule: Make sure that you are also avoiding direct sun exposure and excessive heat. Continue to use a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher just as you were prior to your peel.

• Make sure to keep your skin well hydrated with a protective moisturizer. Apply it twice daily or more often if needed to reduce the appearance of flaking.

• For five days after your chemical peel, do not have electrolysis, facial waxing or use depilatories.

• Avoid using retinols and glycolic acids for 10 days post peel.

• Do not use scrubs, loofahs, exfoliating sponges or other means of mechanical exfoliation on your face for 7-10 days.

• Do not go to a tanning bed for at least two weeks post procedure.

• If you are on an acne regimen, delay the use of tretinoin, Retin-A, Differin, Renova, Tazorac, Avage, EpiDuo, or Ziana 5 days post procedure. However, it is fine to resume using a vitamin C serum five days after your treatment.

• It is extremely important that you DO NOT have another chemical peel until your clinician advises you to.

• If you notice increased redness, increased hyperpigmentation or crusting of the skin, contact your doctor or skincare professional.

Now that you have some information on pre and post chemical peel care, you are now ready for peel season.

I hate that I even have to make this post. Here's the thing, when you cancel 10 minutes before your appointment that does NOT leave me time to fill that slot. I am a small business owner. I pay bills just like you. I have a cancelation policy in place that if you cancel within a certain time frame, I charge a fee. It's that or I have to not allow you to come back. I get there are emergencies. But most of the time, it's not. Please help me make my business successful. Thank you. ❤

Myth for today:
Did you know that your pores do NOT open and close? Mind blown, right!? And you cannot SHRINK your pore size. You can however do things do diminish the look of them. Get regular facials and get yourself on a good skincare routine. ❤

RANT POST!
For the love of everything holy... do NOT use a hyaluron pen. It's illegal in most states for an esthetician to use. Can you buy one? Sure! You can buy a lot of things you shouldn't have. What are you injecting? How much are you injecting? Nobody knows! Go to a damn doctor (or nurse) and get a filler. You get what you pay for.
I said what I said.

Nano #3! On #2 I peeled like crazy! I had 2 wrinkles that have almost completely disappeared as I'm pointing out in pic 2 above my eye. A lot of my elasticity issue is taken care of, but I'll go for more!! I used a stem cell serum with a lightening serum tonight and I'm a little red. We'll see if I peel again. ❤❤ loving the texture I'm getting for sure!!
