Skin peels can deliver considerable improvements, but the success of a peel depends on your professional knowledge and your ability to evaluate the skin; fresh, quality ingredients; and client compliance. As such, a few do’s and don’ts of chemical peels should be reviewed.
Undergo appropriate training—this is very important.
Complete a skin assessment and history on the client.
Perform a patch test at least 48 hours before the treatment.
Send clients home with care instructions and appropriate retail products.
Take before-and-after photos to track progress.
Manage expectations before starting a program.
Never do a peel on the first visit.
Never perform a peel on a client using tretinoin or taking isotretinoin.
Never conduct a peel if a client has received Botox or another injectable procedure that day.
