When receiving a PCA chemical peel, it is recommended to avoid the use of prescription topicals and retinols, direct, intentional sun exposure and facial waxing for one week prior to and after your peel, or until all signs of visible peeling are diminished. Immediately after receiving your peel, DO NOT wear makeup or wet or wash your face for 24 hours. DO NOT work out or partake in any strenuous activities that elevate your body temperature for 48-72 hours. Lukewarm water is recommended for cleansing. DO NOT apply ice, pick or peel flaking skin, use saunas, steam rooms or take hot baths for 72 hours post treatment. The use of a PCA post peel kit for 3-5 days after receiving your chemical peel is highly recommended.
