Dermalogica BioSurface Peel

 BioSurface Peel pre-peel preparation

The treatment you will receive is designed to exfoliate or remove dead skin cell on the outer (epidermal) layers of the skin. Depending on the treatment, you may experience some temporary burning, itching, stinging or warm flushing. This will fade within 5-10 minutes and your professional skin therapist will discuss and monitor these sensations. During the next few hours, you may experience some tightening of the skin, which may last for several days. For some clients, a light flaking may begin within 2-3 days after treatment. It is impossible to pre-determine how much peeling will occur. The shedding process usually subsides within 7-10 days. Your full participation during and after the treatment will determine the outcome. It is important that you strictly adhere to the homecare products and regimen that your professional skin therapist has recommended. The Bio surface peel may not be suitable for everyone and it will be left to the therapist expert advice as to whether or not the treatment can carried out. Before you receive each BioSurface Peel treatment you will be asked to confirm the below statements:

  • I have not received a cosmetic or resurfacing skin procedure such as laser, light therapy, chemical peel or microdermabrasion within the past 2 weeks.
  • I am not pregnant or lactating.
  • I have not used any prescribed topical medications such as Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid or Retin-A.
  • I do not have any active cold sores.
  • I have not received Botox or other injectable procedures within the past 6 weeks.
  • I have not used Isotretinoin (also known as Accutane) in the past 6 months.
  • I agree to apply sunscreen protection (minimum SPF30) daily.
  • I agree to notify my professional skin therapist of concerns.
  • I agree to follow the prescribed protocol.
  • I agree to avoid direct sun for 2-3 weeks.
  • I agree not to wax for 72 hours.

You will be asked to sign a Consent for Treatment and your therapist will verbalise and provide written Post-Treatment instructions. BioSurface Peel will not be offered to new clients prior without a full consultation. It may be necessary to carry out a specified homecare routine for the weeks leading up to your first treatment to ensure that your overall skin health is good, which will result in improved results and safer practice. Please contact our therapist if you have any questions.


BioSurface Peel Post Treatment Instructions

Use the following guidelines until your skin has resolved peeling (approximately 7-10 days.) For more sensitive skin or after a more intense treatment, consider following these guidelines for at least 10 days. 1. Immediately following treatment, apply a broad spectrum physical sunscreen (minimum SPF30) such as Dermalogica Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 or UltraSensitive Tint SPF30. Avoid direct daylight exposure for 2-3 weeks and wear a 3” wide brim hat if going in the sun is necessary. Direct sun exposure must be avoided to prevent hyperpigmentation.s2.On the day of treatment, avoid strenuous exercise or prolonged exposure to heat sources such as dry saunas and steam rooms. Increased blood circulation to the face will cause an increased warming effect, which could lead to discomfort(prickling, itching, etc.), redness, inflammation, swelling or other side effects. 3. On the night of treatment, rinse your face with cool water and a gentle cleanser such as UltraCalming Cleanser, then moisturise skin with a barrier-protecting moisturiser such as Barrier Repair. This will help soothe skin tightness.

4. Increase your fluid intake for 2-3 days after the BioSurface Peel treatment.
5.You will likely begin peeling within 2-3 days. This is normal. DO NOT pick or peel at loose skin. This may cause discolouration.
6. Avoid using any type of exfoliating product on the treated area for 72 hours after treatment or until your skin shows no signs of sensitivity. If skin is no longer sensitive, MultiVitamin Thermafoliant may be used to slough off peeling skin.
7.Continue to moisturise the treated area for the duration of the peeling process. Applying Multi-Active Toner, Skin Hydrating Booster or a slightly thicker moisturiser such as Intensive Moisture Balance throughout the day can help maintain hydration and decrease the appearance of flaking.

Once peeling and redness subside:

Resume the regular Dermalogica daily routine that has been recommended by your professional skin therapist. Following your treatment your therapist will verbalise these instructions and provide written Post-Treatment instructions for you to take home with you. You will be required to initial the Consent Form to confirm you have received these instructions. As part of each course all clients will receive an Aftercare Kit (worth £10.50) as part of their treatment package. This contains 72 hours worth of the products you must use following your treatment and includes:

  • UltraCalming Cleanser 7ml
  • Barrier Repair 3ml
  • Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 3ml
  • Intensive Moisture Balance 7ml
  • MultiVitamin Thermofoliant 10ml

It will be necessary to purchase these products to use in the 3-10 days following each treatment, and in the days prior to each subsequent treatment. We have put together a package for each course containing all the products you need saving you 17% off RRP!
