Red Carpet Peel before and afterDo you want to reverse the aging process? Unlike any other procedure, the Red Carpet Peel will enhance your skin’s natural beauty and give you a youthful radiance, making you look your best for any special occasion. An occasion such as a wedding is an outstanding opportunity to make your skin look younger and more radiant. Chemical peels work great for this purpose. Using a synergistic combination of ingredients, the Red Carpet Peel improves fine lines, wrinkles, and discolorations, while at the same time stimulating the production of collagen, leading to tighter skin and closing pores. It is also perfect for acne and acne scars. You will see dramatic results in about a week with this virtually painless procedure which takes less than 15 minutes. Dr. Alex recommends an initial series of three to six treatments at four to eight week intervals, followed by maintenance treatments once every three to four months.

As we age, dead skin cells accumulate on the surface of the skin. When light hits such skin, it does not reflect, giving a dull appearance. Exfoliation with chemical peels removes this layer and provides a glow to the skin. It works great for a variety of skin conditions including acne, discoloration, enlarged pores, scars, and even some pre-cancerous lesions. When performed in a series at monthly intervals and combined with skin care products such as anti-oxidants, exfoliants, retinoids, bleaching agents, and sunscreens beautiful results can be obtained.

A E Skin Red Carpet Peel Experience

The A E Skin Red Carpet Peel experience is fast, safe, and comfortable. It provides outstanding results for facial rejuvenation, with improvements in fine lines, wrinkles, and discolorations, as well as active acne and acne scars. We start by washing your face and taking baseline photographs to monitor your progress. Next we sit you down in front of a fan to keep you comfortable. We'll then clean your skin with cleansing solutions. When the peeling agent is applied, you will feel a tingling, burning, or itching sensation, but this will subside shortly because it contains a numbing ingredient. We will let you sit in front of the cold air for a few more minutes and we're done. We'll apply sunscreen to your skin and you are good to go.

Chemical Peel Aftercare Instructions

For best results, carefully follow these aftercare instructions: Please avoid heat exposure, alcohol consumption, and strenuous exercise for 24 hours after the treatment. Heat refers to going out in the hot sun, if it were to be hot outdoors, but also any hot environment indoors, such as a hot bath, sauna, or steam room. Also avoid hot or spicy foods or drinks like soup, hot coffee, or hot tea because all of these things will bring blood to the skin and cause problem like redness, blister, and discolorations. Avoid harsh rubbing or scrubbing for one week after the treatment. Do not use products such as washcloths or the Clarisonic brush. Avoid direct water contact from the showerhead when in the shower. Please avoid makeup for several days after the treatment because your skin will be sensitive. You may be red for a few days after the treatment. Redness is normal, don't be alarmed. Feel free to apply cold compresses to your skin to keep you comfortable, if necessary. Sometimes dark discolorations get darker before they get lighter; this is normal. For the week after your treatment, spray a small amount of the Avene thermal water then apply a thin layer of the Elta MD Intense Moisturizer every few hours to improve the healing process. Be sure to apply a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF of at least 30 every day.

What Happens After a Chemical Peel?

Most people will peel on days three to five after the treatment, but everyone is different. Some people don't peel at all. This is ok, for the goal is not to peel, it is to get results. These people are actually getting exfoliation, but it is microscopic, so you don't see it. If you do get visible peeling, please do not pick at it, otherwise you may have side effects such as redness, blisters, and discolorations. By seven days, the new skin has formed. It is refreshed and rejuvenated, and you will see improvements in color texture and tone.
