Can I have an Eyebrow tint & wax and a Facial on the same day?

It’s not ideal to have both on the same day as the facial could lighten the tint. If you really wanted to have this done, the eyebrow tint & wax would have to be booked prior to your Facial.

- Clients must wait 7-14 days after receiving Fillers until they can have a facial

Clients should have been given an aftercare leaflet which would have given them their recommendation. If anyone is unsure they should consult wherever they received their Botox/Fillers.

How long do you need to be clear or Roaccutane before having a facial?

You need to wait a minimum of 6 months before any exfoliating treatments.

We would recommend clients return for another pro power peel between 2-4 weeks depending on skin tolerance.

For slightly more sensitive skins we would advise a minimum of 3 weeks.

Why do I have to fill in a separate consultation card before my Pro Power Peel Treatment?

All clients must complete and sign the Dermalogica Consultation card. This treatment procedure cannot be safely performed until this has been completed.

How long before my Pro Power Peel do I need a patch test?

When booking your Pro Power Peel Treatment, please also book a Pro Power Peel Patch test appointment at least 48 hours proir to your Pro Power Peel, but may be done several weeks in advance, to check skin sensitivity.

What is the difference between a professional peel carried out in a salon vs. an at-home peel?

Peels designed to be applied by licensed professional skin therapists – like Pro Power Peel – tend to be more concentrated, at a very low pH, and customisable to deliver more dramatic results. These formulas are usually not available to clients for self-application. Peels designed to be used by clients at home tend to be lighter in nature. They are ideal for quick, easy removal of dulling surface cells, as well as building the skin's tolerance for stronger professional peels and maintaining results in between professional treatments.

What should I expect after my Pro Power Peel?

Your skin may appear red and flushed following the treatment, and may be more sensitive depending on your skin condition and at-home care regimen. Side effects include, but are not limited to, dryness, stinging, itching, irritation, redness, swelling, tightness, peeling and scabbing. By the second day, skin may peel or look darker. On the third day, peeling may begin around the nose and mouth, followed by the cheeks, forehead, jawline and neck.

Your Skin Therapist will prescribe you the Pro Power Peel Post-Procedure Kit to be use at home for 2-3 days following your treatment.

What are the post-procedure care instructions?

Your Skin Therapist will prescribe you the Pro Power Peel Post-Procedure Kit to be use at home for 2-3 days following your treatment.

You will be given the following guidelines until your skin has resolved peeling. For more sensitive skin or after a more intense treatment – you should consider following these guidelines for at least 10 days. All products below will be included in your Pro Power Peel Post-Procedure Kit.

Immediately following treatment
You should apply a broad spectrum physical sunscreen (minimum SPF30), such as Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 or SkinPerfect Primer SPF30. Avoid direct sun exposure for 2-3 weeks to prevent hyperpigmentation, and to wear a wide-brim hat if they must be in the sun.

Avoid strenuous exercise on the day of your treatment, along with prolonged exposure to heat sources like dry saunas or steam
rooms; these activities increase blood circulation to the face, which can lead to discomfort, redness, swelling or other side effects.

On the night of your treatment you should rinse their face with cool water and cleanse with UltraCalming™ Cleanser, then moisturise with Barrier
Defense Booster and Calm Water Gel (all included in the Pro Power Peel Post-Procedure Kit).

Increase your fluid intake for the next 2-3 days.

You will likely begin peeling within 2-3 days. This is normal; you should not pick at loose skin, as this may cause discoloration.

Avoid any type of exfoliating product until directed otherwise by your Skin Therapist.

Continue to use the products included in the Pro Power Peel Post-Procedure Kit for the duration of the peeling process. Moisturise throughout the day to maintain hydration and decrease the appearance of flaking.

Once peeling and redness have subsided, you may resume your regular Dermalogica daily routine.

My skin is not peeling. Does this mean the treatment did not work?

Absolutely not! Depending on the skin’s resistance and treatment frequency, you may experience a delay in peeling – or experience no peeling or flaking. For a more accurate assessment of the treatment’s success,advise feel the texture of your skin; if it feels smoother, the treatment is working. The absence of peeling could also indicate that your skin may be able to tolerate additional peel layers during the treatment.

Some areas of my hyperpigmentation appear darker. Did the treatment make my pigmentation worse?

No. It can take a week or longer to see changes in your skin! There may be more colour on hyperpigmented areas for the first few days after treatment, as pigmented cells rise to the surface and slough off while new skin cells emerge at the basal cell layer. Please contact your Skin Therapist at the salon if you experience extreme darkening or lightening.

What exactly is the difference between peeling from a chemical peel and peeling from a sunburn?

Sunburns and chemical peels may produce similar reactions, but they have very different effects on the skin.
A chemical peel uses a variety of caustic chemicals to selectively disrupt layers of skin and encourage the regeneration of healthy new skin. A sunburn is an uncontrolled wound caused by over exposing your skin to Ultraviolet Radiation (UVR).

How can I maintain my results between my Pro Power Peel treatments?

Many clients can benefit from using at-home peels – like our Rapid Reveal Peel – in between professional resurfacing treatments to help maintain their results. You should wait at least two weeks after you Pro Power Peel before beginning treatment with Rapid Reveal Peel.

When can I apply make-up after my Pro Power Peel?

It’s best to wait as long as possible on the day of treatment to apply make-up – but sometimes clients want to apply it right away. We suggest you wait a minimum of 20 minutes to 24 hours after your treatment to give the skin a chance to calm down and reduce the possibility of irritation.

Can I have an extraction during my Pro Power Peel?

We won't perform any extractions on the same day as the Pro Power Peel. Extractions may increase the chance of skin irritation, which could result in post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or scarring due to the delicateness of the skin tissue. If you require an extractions, please speak to your Skin Therapist about scheduling a followup ProSkin 30.

Can I have an facial Waxing/Threading/Tinting after or before a Pro Power Peel

We recommend at least 24 hours in between a Pro Power Peel and Facial Waxing/Tinting/Threading. This is because waxing involves removing layers of skin and is a form of exfoliation which is something you cannot do just before or after a Pro Power Peel. Threading is also a form of friction against the skin which can cause irritability. Tinting can also be prone to causing irritation as pores may be open.

Can I have a Spray Tan after my Pro Power Peel Treatment?

We recommend to wait a minimum of 72 hours after your Pro Power Peel treatment before booking a Spray Tan.

Which products should I use at home after my Pro Power Peel?

After your Pro Power Peel you will need to use 4 products.

You can purchase a Pro Power Peel post procedure kit for £25 which contains everything you need.
