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 was impressed that the doctor really listened to me and that she thoroughly answered my questions. Instead of telling me not to worry about things, she explained the nature of the condition and why it wasn't a concern. She also thoroughly explained my treatment options so I could make an informed decision.

I was dissapointed when my appointment was cancelled because of the snow. I had to wait 6 weeks to get another appointment. I wish that I could have been worked in sooner.

#22011-03-11 14:29:03

you are the best!

#32011-08-10 10:32:44

I had an appointment for a consulation for sun damage. Unfortunately, I need to see either a doctor or PA for my issue and this was not included in my appointment, so I need to make another trip. It is difficult for me to carve time out of my work day to take care of personal needs, so this is creating an inconvenience for me. I would have preferred to had the complete consultation done in one appointment.

#42011-02-14 14:14:53

I do not believe there is a need to improve.

#52010-11-01 14:00:26
