No gum chewing allowed during the treatment and talking will be restricted by your skincare specialist at certain key times during the treatment.
Avoid sun exposure as much as possible for a minimum of 3 days post treatment. If you must be in the sun, apply SPF 30 or greater, reapply often, wear a wide brimmed hat, and seek shade when possible.
Avoid excessive heat 3 days post treatment, i.e. heavy workouts, steam rooms or saunas, etc.

You may experience slight peeling for the first few days. Slight windburn sensation and/or blotchiness are normal for the first few days. Skin care products may tingle or slightly burn for the first 2 days.
*Schedule this treatment every 3-5 weeks.
Using PCA SKIN Daily Care products 2 weeks before your peel will prepare your skin, and reduce the risk of complications. We recommend Facial Wash, Collagen Hydrator or Apres Peel Balm, any of our skin specific PCA SKIN Retinols (Intensive Clarity for Acne, Intensive Brightening for Hyperpigmentation and Intensive Age for de-aging) and SPF.
No tanning (tanning bed, or increased sun exposure) for 2 weeks prior to treatment. This practice should be discontinued altogether due to the increased risk of skin cancer and accelerated visible aging. ~Delay the use of Retin-A, Differin, Renova, Tazorac, EdpiDuo, Ziana and high percentage AHA and BHA products for 5 days before treatment. However, PCA SKIN retinols can be used continuously.
After receiving a PCA SKIN professional treatment, you should not necessarily expect to “peel”. Light flaking in a few localized areas for 3-5 days and residual redness for 1-12 hour post-procedure is typical. ~The procedure may cause swelling, redness, crusting, dryness, skin sensitivity, itching, and flaking of the site which could last for 1-2 weeks. In the days after the peel, the skin may feel and look tight, with parchment-paper like changes or darkening. These are expected reactions.
Do not apply makeup after your procedure, until the next day. It is recommended to let the skin rest and stabilize overnight.
To minimize the potential for side effects use only the PCA SKIN Post-Procedure Kit for 3-5 days until flaking has resolved.
Do not pick or pull any flaking skin, as it may cause damage and hyper/hypopigmentation
Avoid exercise, hot tubs, saunas or any swimming pools for 24 hours after your treatment.
Do not have any facial waxing, or use depilatories for approximately 5 days.
*Schedule your chemical peel every 2-5 weeks or as directed by Flawless Esthetics Boutique Esthetician.
Please come to appointment makeup free.
Contacts must be removed before treatment.
Do not get your lashes wet for the first 24 hours, This includes showering, sweating, and crying.
Use of Sauna/Steam is possible after 24 hours, but may weaken the effect of the lash lift, as it will neutralize the chemical process and leave you with flat lashes.
No eye make up for 24 hours.
Do not use harsh products on your eyes/lashes.
Be gentle with your lashes; no rubbing and pat gently to dry.
Avoid waterproof mascara due to the excessive rubbing required to remove.
Do not use eyelash curlers. (You shouldn’t need to.)
*Schedule your Lash Lifts every 4-8 weeks.
Wax On, Wax Off
Body hair should be at least 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch long for best results.
No waxing on skin that is irritated, burned, or injured.
Discontinue use of retinol products & AHA/BHA (chemical) exfoliants at least 5 days prior to your appointment.
We recommend protecting the skin from direct sunlight exposure the day before the treatment, since UV rays can make your skin sensitive for waxing.
Gently exfoliate the targeted bodily area at home before the appointment with a loofah or grain/sugar based (physical) exfoliant. If dead skin cells are mostly removed from the epidermis (the top layer of the skin) through a previous exfoliation, the waxing treatment will be less painful.
Freshen up before a waxing appointment, even if it’s just for an eyebrow wax service. If you are sweaty or wearing a full face of makeup, the wax is less likely to stick, so the process will take longer. On top of that, sweat can raise the temperature of the wax and burn the skin.
Lastly, wear comfortable loose fitting clothing for body waxing to allow your skin to breathe pre/post waxing appointment.
It is recommended that hot baths, saunas, sunbeds, swimming, or sunbathing be avoided for 24 to 48 hours after a wax. Waxing opens the pores; therefore, if you do not take care of the skin after the procedure, it could lead to infection or irritation.
Alcohol-based products, deodorants, perfumes, or colognes are also forbidden for the same amount of time (24-48 hours).
Wait 4-7 days to return to regular exfoliating habits, it is recommended to exfoliate 1-2 times per week.
