Salicylic Acid peel

overview:

Various concentrations of salicylic acid exfoliate thickened skin, one of the common problems in acne.

Expected results:

Diminished acne activity, fresh glow.

Preparation:

The effects of salicylic acid peels and the efficiency of the peel can be potentiated by following your dermatologist's instruction for medical acne treatment, which often includes topical retinoids. If used, any retinoid must be stopped the night before the peel and can be resumed the night after the peel. The morning of the peel, there is no necessity to apply any product other than your daily sunscreen.

Post treatment instructions:

Resume your daily skin care regimen the day after the peel.

Time to desired results:

Smooth texture of the skin is noted the day after your first peel but full effects are most obvious after a series of 3-6 peels, spaced 3-4 weeks apart.

Lasting results:

Several months

Contraindication:

Isotretinoin (Accutane) within the past six months, allergy to salicylic acid (aspirin), history of phenol peel, pregnancy.

Downtime:

Mild redness for several hours (you should be able to return to work immediately), fine scaling for several days.

What WE DID WELL

(Answers:674)

Doctor was very friendly & knowledgable. I especially appreciated that she seemed unrushed and focused on me. I am hopeful that the procedure she recommended will improve my condition (facial scar).

#22019-09-20

everything was wonderful.

#32019-05-14

The knowledge, helpfulness, and friendliness of every person in this office has made me decide to have my daughter and me be seen here instead of by a doctor in the area in which we live (more than half an hour away). Thank you.

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

I was dissapointed when my appointment was cancelled because of the snow. I had to wait 6 weeks to get another appointment. I wish that I could have been worked in sooner.

#52019-03-14

You guys did great. This was a great experience for me

#62010-09-22 12:31:41

I had an appointment for a consulation for sun damage. Unfortunately, I need to see either a doctor or PA for my issue and this was not included in my appointment, so I need to make another trip. It is difficult for me to carve time out of my work day to take care of personal needs, so this is creating an inconvenience for me. I would have preferred to had the complete consultation done in one appointment.

#72011-02-14 14:14:53

Keep up the thinks you are doing....

#82019-10-01

Can't think of a way to better your service; it was excellent.

#92019-06-07

No complaints at all. Excellent experience
