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

Friendliness of everyone.

This is one of the best medical offices that I have visited. I see doctors in the Penn and Bryn Mawr systems and this is by far much better than any of those offices. The entire staff is friendly and accommodating. Both doctors are awesome! I have recommended you to family and friends. Keep up the great work!

#32012-12-03 17:05:27

Doctor is extremely efficient and knowledgeable, and even discussed treatment for another condition -- my oral canker sores -- which nobody had ever mentioned previously. Also, the office is really lovely with nice music, rather than pical office music.
