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.

I was very pleased with the service that was provided during my visit. No waiting, excellent service, thorough exam. Overall, it was a pleasure - not usually the case with most doctor's visits these days!

I liked all rthe art work that was hanging up in the hallways. I also liked how friendly everyone was. It seemed as though they all wanted to be here. Some times at otjher places the people at the counter can be disrespectful. Not here. The or was very caring and explained the treatment in terms that we could understand.

Service was excellent, keep up your service as is.

#92020-08-08

I recommended this practice to a family member but they showed up 15 mins late to their first appt. due to traffic and were turned away (after traveling over an hour to get here). I would suggest on the first visit to allow more leeway for late appointments (try to fit them in) and then explain the late policy for all appointments moving forward.
