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.

We liked that Dr. Ringpfeil explained everything to us and made my daugther (almost 6 yo) feel very comfortable in the office. She was very friendly, kind and professional.

Cannot think of anyway to improve things, unless you want to serve hot tea and cappachino!

#32011-02-24 15:01:34

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.

#42011-02-07 10:50:14

Coffee, Tea? only kidding. Hope I gave the reader a smile today.

Too Early

#62022-07-01

I think that you should just mkae the vists a little bit quicker, and thats all.

#72010-10-27 08:46:34

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.

#82011-09-21 14:47:49

Parking was a little tight.

#92011-06-09 15:52:46

I am new here, so I don't have any suggestions at this time
