The Rejuvenize Peel from SkinMedica is a medium-depth peel designed to smooth fine lines, diminish sun damage, reduce acne scarring, and correct hyperpigmentation. It’s an excellent cosmetic treatment option for patients who want noticeable results after a single treatment without having to undergo injections or laser therapy.
Given that Rejuvenize peel penetrates deeply into the skin and reaches the dermis, properly caring for your skin is crucial after this treatment.
What To Expect After The Rejuvenize Peel
Immediately after undergoing the Rejuvenize Peel, you may experience redness and tightness until the skin starts to peel. Some patients’ skin may appear slightly yellow or orange after the peel, but this will subside within a few hours.
On the night after undergoing the peel, you can wash your face with a gentle cleanser before going to bed and apply a moisturizer. Make sure that your moisturizer doesn’t contain any potentially irritating ingredients, including retinol, AHAs, or vitamin C.
Caring For Your Skin As It Peels
The skin typically starts to peel within two to three days and may last for two to five days. Wait until your skin is done peeling to engage in strenuous exercise.
Additionally, while your skin is peeling, make sure to regularly moisturize your skin and don’t peel or pick at it. Continue to use a gentle cleanser and don’t rub or scrub your skin. Patients should also refrain from using facial cleansing devices and brushes until after their skin is done peeling.
Once your skin has fully peeled, you can return to your normal skincare routine (as recommended by your care provider). You shouldn’t receive any other cosmetic treatments until after your skin has fully healed, including facials, facial hair removal, microdermabrasion, and injections.
Follow all of your care provider’s aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible results from the Rejuvenize Peel.
