Salicylic Acid peel

overview:

Various concentrations of salicylic acid exfoliate thickened skin, one of the common problems in acne.

Expected results:

Diminished acne activity, fresh glow.

Preparation:

The effects of salicylic acid peels and the efficiency of the peel can be potentiated by following your dermatologist's instruction for medical acne treatment, which often includes topical retinoids. If used, any retinoid must be stopped the night before the peel and can be resumed the night after the peel. The morning of the peel, there is no necessity to apply any product other than your daily sunscreen.

Post treatment instructions:

Resume your daily skin care regimen the day after the peel.

Time to desired results:

Smooth texture of the skin is noted the day after your first peel but full effects are most obvious after a series of 3-6 peels, spaced 3-4 weeks apart.

Lasting results:

Several months

Contraindication:

Isotretinoin (Accutane) within the past six months, allergy to salicylic acid (aspirin), history of phenol peel, pregnancy.

Downtime:

Mild redness for several hours (you should be able to return to work immediately), fine scaling for several days.

The openness and friendliness. The doctor was very careful to make sure I understood. Thanks. The fact that you urged me to come back for an annual exam I consider very kind and caring.

clear directions to facility

#22017-04-21

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.

#32011-02-14 14:14:53

Keep up the thinks you are doing....

#42017-08-19

sometimes I feel the phone staff is not as helpful as it could be, but that is not reflected in the quality of services. Front office is very professional overall.

#52010-11-04 13:29:14

#62017-05-09

The only downside is parking!
