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.

Everyone is so warm and welcoming! great ambience, great music The lovely doctor is perfect- highly skilled, warm and a great mother!

#32020-10-31

How kind and attentive both Linda and Jenny were. I did not feel rushed and I did not feel pushed into buying products, which were two reasons I left the last practice I was using.

#42011-04-14 11:05:49

The medical assistant was very helpful.

#52020-07-23

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.

(answers:373)

any information on services provided for enhancing skin apperance

#12020-05-30

Good the way it is.

#22020-07-01

I thought that consideration could have been made re: pricing of skin tag removal since I only had one tag removed.

#32020-11-18

Nothing missing.

#42020-06-03

My advice would be to continue doing exactly what you are presently doing. I had a very good first impression of Dr. Ringpfeil and the practice. Thank you.

#52011-02-07 10:50:14
