PRE FACIAL
TREATMENT
INSTRUCTIONS

At our esthetics salon, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our clients. To ensure the best possible outcome for your facial, dermaplaning, or microdermabrasion treatment, we have established the following pre-treatment policy:

1. Consultation: Prior to scheduling any of these treatments, we require a consultation with our esthetician, which will be held at the beginning of your appointment or can be scheduled in advance for a virtual or in person consultation upon request for specific concerns. During this consultation, we will assess your skin type, discuss your concerns and goals, and determine the most suitable treatment plan for you.

2. Skin Conditions and Medications: Please inform our esthetician about any skin conditions, allergies, or sensitivities you may have. It is crucial to disclose any current or recent use of medications, including topical prescriptions, oral medications, or supplements that may affect your skin's sensitivity or healing process.

3. Sun Exposure and Tanning: It is advisable to avoid excessive sun exposure, tanning beds, or sunburns before these treatments. If you have a sunburn or are currently experiencing sun damage, we may need to reschedule your appointment to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.

4. Exfoliation and Hair Removal: Refrain from using exfoliating products, such as scrubs or chemical exfoliants, at least one week before your scheduled treatment. Additionally, avoid waxing, threading, or any other forms of hair removal in the treatment area for at least three days prior.

5. Skin Sensitivities: If you have known sensitivities to certain ingredients or a history of adverse reactions to skincare treatments, please inform our esthetician during the consultation. This information will help us select the appropriate products and customize the treatment for your specific needs.

6. Pregnancy and Nursing: If you are pregnant, nursing, or planning to become pregnant, please inform our esthetician. Some treatments may not be suitable or require modifications during these periods to ensure your safety and the well-being of your baby.

7. Pre-Treatment Instructions: Our esthetician will provide you with specific pre-treatment instructions based on the chosen procedure. These may include avoiding specific medications, skincare products, or activities that could interfere with the treatment or compromise your skin's integrity.

Following these pre-treatment guidelines will help maximize the effectiveness of the treatment and reduce the risk of potential complications. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the pre-treatment policy, please feel free to discuss them with our esthetician during your consultation.

PRE CHEMICAL
PEEL
INSTRUCTIONS

At our esthetics salon, we prioritize the safety and well-being of our clients. Preparing for a chemical peel is essential to achieve the best possible results and ensure a safe and effective treatment. Prior to your appointment, please follow these pre-chemical peel instructions:

1. Consultation: Prior to scheduling any of these treatments, we require a consultation with our esthetician, which will be held at the beginning of your appointment or can be scheduled in advance for a virtual or in person consultation upon request for specific concerns. During this consultation, we will assess your skin type, discuss your concerns and goals, and determine the most suitable treatment plan for you.

2. Medications and Topical Products:

  • Avoid using any retinoids, including tretinoin (Retin-A), adapalene (Differin), and tazarotene (Tazorac), for at least one week before your chemical peel.

  • Discontinue using any topical medications or creams containing hydroquinone, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, or glycolic acid for at least one week prior to your peel.

  • If you are using oral acne medications such as isotretinoin (Accutane), it is crucial to inform your aesthetician, as these medications may require a longer waiting period before a chemical peel can be performed.

3. Sun Exposure and Tanning:

  • Minimize sun exposure for at least two weeks prior to your peel. Avoid sunbathing, tanning beds, and prolonged outdoor activities without sunscreen.

  • Always wear broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 or higher when going outside, even on cloudy days.

4. Skin Sensitivities:

  • If you have a history of sensitive skin or have experienced adverse reactions to previous facial treatments, it is important to let your aesthetician know before your appointment.

  • Avoid waxing, tweezing, or any other hair removal treatments on the treatment area at least one week prior to your chemical peel.

5. Skincare Products:

  • Stop using exfoliating scrubs, harsh cleansers, and abrasive facial brushes for one week before your peel.

  • Avoid using facial products that contain irritants such as alcohol, fragrance, menthol, or essential oils at least one week before your appointment.

  • It is recommended to use gentle, non-irritating cleansers and moisturizers leading up to your peel.

6. Pregnancy and Nursing: If you are pregnant, nursing, or planning to become pregnant, please inform our esthetician. Some treatments may not be suitable or require modifications during these periods to ensure your safety and the well-being of your baby.

7. Timing: Schedule your chemical peel at least two weeks before any important events or special occasions to allow ample time for the skin to heal and recover.

Please note that these instructions are general guidelines, and it is essential to consult with your aesthetician for personalized recommendations based on your skin type, concerns, and the specific type of chemical peel you will be receiving. Following these instructions will help optimize your results and minimize the risk of adverse reactions.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your chemical peel, please don't hesitate to contact our salon. We are here to assist you and ensure a successful treatment.
