Review the DermaQuest Professional Exfoliation Treatment Precautions and Contraindications and the DermaQuest Informed Consent forms.
Until the skin is completely healed, you should use the DermaQuest Post-Skin Needling/ Resurfacing Kit which includes the Delicate Skin Cleanser, Skin Rehydrating Serum, Skin Rebuilding Serum, Antioxidant Soothing Serum and Daily Moisturizing Lotion SPF 15. All products should be applied twice daily. It will help to keep the skin well hydrated post treatment.
This treatment may cause increased sensitivity to the skin depending on the skin type and home care regimen. Side effects may include, but not limited to, stinging, itching-irritation, redness, swelling, tightness, peeling and scabbing of the skin. Avoid sweating, exercising, hot baths or showers, scrubbing, picking or rubbing, which could lead to scarring.
If you are using retinoids and/or alpha hydroxy acid products, only re-introduced to the skin once it has healed. Protect the skin from direct sun exposure with a broad spectrum sunscreen for a minimum of 3 days post-treatment to prevent hyperpigmentation. A hat may be worn if necessary. Your compliance with the use of daily sunscreen on an ongoing basis is mandatory, especially with exfoliation treatments.
You must cease using Retin A for one week and no facial waxing for one-two weeks prior to the Peptide Resurfacer. If you are using benzoyl peroxide products you must cease use for 3-4 days prior to the peel. Those who are prone to herpes breakouts can be referred to a physician for a prescription prior to the peel to help avoid breakouts during healing time.
The Glycolic Acid Resurfacer [30%] and [40%] can be performed in a series of 6 treatments, scheduled 1-2 weeks apart, 2 times per year.
A patch test may be performed at least 72 hours before the actual peel is performed.
