NeoGenesis Products for Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin anywhere on the body but particularly on the face, neck, hands or chest. A chemical solution of an acid is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new skin is usually smoother and appears less wrinkled and brighter in appearance than the older skin. The new skin will be more sun sensitive for a period of time and requires a higher level of care and protection to avoid any additional damage to occur.
Before a Chemical Peel
Before having a chemical peel to revive aging or damaged skin, it is important to prepare the skin for the peel beforehand to achieve the best possible results and to avoid any risks or negative outcomes.
We recommend using NeoGenesis Recovery, twice daily after cleansing with the NeoGenesis Cleanser for four weeks prior to a peel. Apply the Recovery serum all over the face and neck, including the eye area and around the lips. After Recovery, apply NeoGenesis Intensive Moisturizer or Barrier Renewal Cream, to keep the barrier hydrated, soothed, and repaired.
This protocol, used twice daily, will help heal and nourish the skin and lessen the chance of unwanted side effects.
After a Chemical Peel
Your skin will be more sensitive and fragile after a peel and must be handled with care for proper healing.
Use NeoGenesis Cleanser, followed by Recovery twice daily. When appropriate, Intensive Moisturizer or Barrier Renewal Cream may be used for soothing relief.
For instant relief, a light spray of Moisturizing Mist may be used throughout the day, as needed.
After approximately 10 days, if the skin has returned to a normal state, Skin Serum or Booster may be applied in the morning after cleansing, followed by a moisturizer and a chemical free sunscreen. Continue the use of Recovery after cleansing in the evening, followed by a moisturizer. If additional hydration is needed in the evening, Skin Serum or Booster may be added to your skin routine, after Recovery and before the moisturizer.
When your skin is completely healed, Recovery may be used daily or 3 to 4 times per week as a boost prior to any other product.
