What can I expect during this treatment?
Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed before the active solution is applied. The Blue Peel Radiance will exfoliate the top layer of the skin smoothing the skin’s texture. During this point of the treatment, you will feel a slight tickling sensation on the applied area. Once the solution has been properly applied, a recovery solution will be applied as a follow up to help protect your skin from free radicals. Keep in mind, the Blue Peel Radiance is a chemical peel with an active ingredient known as salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is an oil-soluble ingredient which means it will get deep into your pores to cleanse dirt and decrease pore size. The peel will essentially force your dead skin cells up to the surface where they are then eliminated. All the while the peel will stimulate the collagen production underneath our skin to rejuvenate our youthful complexion.
Is the treatment Painful?
Yikes! A very common question asked from most of our patients is if the procedure is painful. The procedure is not painful at all, however, the patients may experience a warm, mildly tingling sensation. Once the peel is completed, a neutralizing lotion is applied immediately after to mitigate and eliminate any discomfort.
How long does the treatment last?
The Blue Peel Radiance treatment is quick! It’s estimated to take about 20 to 30 minutes. The time may vary depending on the severity of the treatment and the area treated. Most patients feel clean and refreshed immediately after the treatment is done. Quick & Easy.
What to expect after the treatment
Soon after your treatment, what exactly can you expect? After the Blue Peel Radiance, your skin will begin to peel within 2 to 3 days. The sloughing will continue for several days after. However, between the 7th and 10th day, your skin should be back to normal. One of the most important post-treatment practices is to apply a UVA/UVB SPF which can be recommended by one of the medical professionals at Flawless Med Spa. Again, the recovery time may vary depending on how strong a percentage was used. The lighter the peel the faster the recovery time, and vice versa. To aid in a faster recovery, drink plenty of water and receive an adequate amount of nutrients. This may accelerate your body’s natural response to recovery.
What are the results?
Finally, the moment you’ve all been waiting for, what are the results? Before we get into the results let’s touch upon post-care. As for post-treatment care, try your best to avoid direct sun exposure. The ultraviolet (UV) rays can be harmful to your newly treated area. It’s highly recommended that you continue to protect your skin with sunscreen to help maintain the benefits of the peel.
