SKIN BETTER SCIENCE

Chemical Peels 

Chemical Peels are a great way to improve your skin, either by itself or in combination with a skincare routine or laser treatment.  Chemical peels can help improve and clear acne and acne scars, decrease redness, improve skin discolorations, brown spots, sun spots, and melasma, and can improve fine lines and wrinkles.

 

 

What is the AlphaRet® Professional Peel?

The AlphaRet Professional Peel is a professional use only, in-office compliment to your skin better science* regimen. This Peel is designed for photo damaged skin, including early signs of skin aging, including fine lines and wrinkles. Can treat hyperpigmentation, blemishes, and improve skin tone and dullness.

Pre-Treatment:

  • Do not have facial hair waxed or lasered 48 hrs prior to treatment and avoid facial shaving 8 hrs before treatment.

  • Please talk to your healthcare professional if you have had any recent procedures to confirm suitability


Post-Treatment:

  • There is little to no downtime and you can resume normal activities immediately. However we advise you to avoid strenuous exercise or swimming for 24 hours after treatment.

  • We recommend using SkinBetter Science Alto Defense Antioxidant Serum twice daily after the peel as it soothes and calms the skin. The SkinBetter Science A-Team Duo Kit is a simple 2 step kit suitable for preparing patients for in clinic treatments. It contains Alto Defence & AlphaRet Overnight Cream.

  • We always recommend the use of sunscreen to prevent sun damage to the skin. Sunscreen with SPF 30 or above should be used daily. If you are under the sun for prolonged periods of time, sunscreen needs to be reapplied at least once every 2-4 hours.  

  • Do not use retinoid or retinol containing products such as AlphaRet or any other Vitamin A derivatives for 5 days post treatment unless otherwise directed by your healthcare professional.

  • Do not use other potentially irritating ingredients such as harsh exfoliating products that contain AHAs or BHAs for 5 days post treatment. 

  • Do not wax facial hair for at least 48hrs post treatment.
