Preparing the Skin for a Chemical Peel
When opting for a chemical peel to revive aging or damaged skin, it is important to prepare the skin for the peel to achieve the best possible result and to avoid any risks associated with chemical peels. NeoGenesis recommends using Recovery, twice daily after cleansing with the NeoGenesis Cleanser for four weeks prior to a peel. Apply Recovery all over the face and neck, including the eye area and around the lips. After Recovery, apply our Intensive Moisturizer or Barrier Renewal Cream, to keep the barrier hydrated, repaired and soothed. This twice daily protocol will heal and nourish the skin for a superior outcome and lessen the chance of unwanted side effects.
After a Chemical Peel
The skin will be in a more sensitive and fragile state after a peel and must be handled with great care for proper healing. Use our gentle Cleanser, followed by Recovery twice daily. When appropriate, Intensive Moisturizer or Barrier Renewal Cream may be used for soothing relief. For instant relief, a light spray of our Moisturizing Mist may be used throughout the day as needed. After approximately 10 days, if the skin has returned to a normal state, Skin Serum or Booster may be applied in the AM after cleansing, followed by one of our moisturizers. Continue the use of Recovery after cleansing in the PM, followed by one of our moisturizers. If additional hydration is needed in the PM, Skin Serum or Booster may be added to the routine, after Recovery and before the moisturizer.
When the skin is completely healed, Recovery may be used daily or 3 to 4 times per week as a boost prior to any other product. Click here to learn more about using NeoGenesis products for Chemical Peels.
