What happens during a Dermaceutic Peels treatment?
In all cases, the skin is cleaned using Dermaceutic Cleanser 5 and then rinse with water. The desired peel is then applied to the face after the skin has been rinsed and left for awhile before being rinse off with water. The mask peel and milk peel can generally be expected to be repeated every two weeks for up to four sessions. The spot peel and cosmo can only be applied again after a month. When using either the milk, cosmo or spot peel, to improve the final result it is advisable to twice daily apply Dermaceutic Serum 25 to the skin along with Turnover or Light Ceutic at night during the two weeks prior to treatment.
After using either the spot, milk, or cosmo peel, direct contact with sunlight should be evaded and sunscreen, such as Sun Ceutic, should be used. Repair creams such as K Ceutic and Hyal Ceutic may also be applied to areas of redness or irritation. Once these symptoms have disappeared, it is recommended that Serum 25, Turnover, or Light Ceutic is continued to be used.
