The skin is prepared using three weeks before the peeling a cream based on glycolic acid.
During the three weeks before the peel, do not carry out mosaics with clay, scrubs or undergo aggressive techniques (type laser hair removal).
Do not use self-tanning agents, additional exfoliating agents (including fruit acid creams), essential oils, or any other cream without medical advice.
The day of the peeling, it is necessary to come without make-up (even the eyes must not be made up), without earrings, without contact lenses, without applying cream on the face the same day.
The men will shave the night before.
For anti-acne peels, you must stop anti-acne treatments one week before the peel: TRETINOINE (Retin A or Renova, vitamin A acid)-PEROXIDES-DIFFERINE (ADAPALENE), TAZORAC or Avage (TAZAROTENE). You must wait for 6 months after stopping ROACCUTANE before starting a peel.
The peeling itself takes place in three stages: firstly, a pre-peel using glycolic acid prepares the skin, then the peel itself is applied (you will feel light stinging) and then, depending on the type of peel the relevant cream is applied. This cream is part of the peel and must not be washed off until the day after.
At the end of the peel the skin is red/ pink and pulls a bit. You can resume your normal activities straight .
