Quelage peel - Patients ask, Dr. Ringpfeil answers
Please feel free to use the blog below to share information about Quelage peel or to ask Dr. Franziska Ringpfeil a question that might be of interest to others.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Possible peeling and redness could occur for up to 2 days.
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 have had the peel. It did wonders for my Rosacea, however I used to be able to buy the products without having more treatments ( I don’t think I need the treatment as often as my after products run out. It works very well for a long time. Can I buy the MWF and STT separately? I,can’t always afford the treatment. Thank you for any information you can provide.
We do not currently sell the products that were part of the Quelage peel. The price for the Quelage peel and kit became astronomical after the company trippled the price. The Quelage peel works great by itself.
I have rosacea and my skin is very dry. The reviews for the quelage peel states it might help with redness and skin texture. Will this help with mila?
A Quelage peel reduce red bumps and redness from inflammation. It also improves skin texture. Milia usually need to be physically extracted once they have occurred. Regular use of a retinoid (if tolerated with roascea) or regular peels can prevent milia but neither is reliable in treating them.
