overview

The Quelage peel is the first chemical peel that is designed specifically for sensitive and rosacea-prone skin. The peel uses a combination of fruit acids and anti-inflammatory agents, which help to gently mask the appearance of redness on the skin.

The Quelage peel is applied during an office visit, and there is no pain or irritation experienced during the application. The peel is complemented with comprehensive home-care products, which are tailored to extend the benefits of your treatment.

Expected results:

The results vary, but patients will see a significant improvement in redness, and skin texture. Results are best maintained if peels are performed in a series of 4-6 treatments, every 3-4 weeks.

Preparations:

One week before the treatment, we ask you to refrain from electrolysis, waxing, depilatory creams, laser hair removal treatments, cosmetic facials, Botox, etc. Two to three days before the treatment, we ask you to avoid using any Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, retinols, alpha hydroxyl acids, beta hydroxyl acids, benzoyl peroxide, or any other exfoliating products that may be drying or irritating.

Post treatment instructions:

It is imperative that you use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and avoid direct sunlight for at least 1 week. Best results will be obtained with regular daily use of such sunscreen.

Downtime:

Possible peeling and redness could occur for up to 2 days.

Price:

$150/treatment

Contraindications:

Patients with active cold sores or warts, skin with open wounds, sunburn, dermatitis, history of herpes simplex, pregnant or breast feeding (lactating) women, patients currently receiving chemotherapy or radiation, patients who have been on Accutane within the past year

I can't think of anything.

#32010-08-25 14:18:06

The only (minor) thing that I was disappointed in was that when I booked the appt. via phone, I was told that in addition to my cosmetic questions and consult, the Dr. would also be able to do my full body check. It turned out that there was not enough time to do both.

#42011-07-27 15:04:39

No changes recommended at this time.

#52022-07-27

Nothing - excellent.
