Essential Starter Kit
Post Skin Treatment Kit
It is advisable that all clients prep their skin for 2 weeks prior to any Dermaquest peel using the 4 products contained in the Essential Starter Kit (Essential Daily Cleanser, Skin Rehydrating Serum, Essential Moisturizer & Daily Moisturising Lotion SPF 15). Maximum success is achieved by building the strength of the skin to better tolerate future, more aggressive treatments and preventing skin sensitivity. In addition, for those clients with a skin Fitzpatrick Type 4 or above it will be necessary for them to also incorporate Skin VitaBrite (a melanin-suppressing product) into their prep routine to reduce the risk of Post Inflammatory Pigmentation.
These treatments may cause increased sensitivity to the skin depending on the skin type and home care regime. Avoid sweating, exercising, hot baths or showers, scrubbing, picking or rubbing which could lead to scarring.
If you are using Retinoids, AHA or Benzoyl Peroxide products only re-introduce them to the skin once it has healed. You must cease using these for at least one week prior to treatment. In addition, no facial waxing for 1 week prior to treatment.
Protect the skin from direct sun exposure with a chemical-free broad spectrum sunscreen for a minimum of 3 days post-treatment to prevent hyperpigmentation. It is recommended that you purchase a take home Post Treatment Kit (containing Delicate Cleansing Cream, Skin Rehydrating Serum, Skin Rebuilding Serum & Daily Moisturising Lotion SPF 15).
