Warning- Patient needs to refrain for retinoid usage for 2 days for and after. No aggressive sun exposure for a week.
Tip about peels- Most peels do not make the skin peel unless we are aggressive with the application or put a layer of retinol over it. So, unless they request peeling, the chemical peel actually wipes the dead skin cells away when we are applying it to the skin and works on the underlying layers. May make skin a little dry for 2-4 days after.

Results begin at 14 days and max results come at 4 weeks. Most patients need 3 treatments for more dramatic results.
Patient may be dry and slough a bit after. No retinoid use 2 days before and 5 days after. They need to use a generic moisturizer with no acid or chemicals.
This is NOT a substitute for laser. Some patients with deep lines and acne scars may need laser. However, this is a good treatment for those that cannot afford the down time and live an active lifestyle where they will be outside a bit. It is effective but we cannot guarantee the same results as laser.

These are commonly covered by insurance but they must have an acne diagnosis. We cannot say if it will be covered or not. They will need to call their insurance. The procedure code is 10040 and the diagnosis code is 706.1. If it is not covered, they will be billed $95 by the office. Can get 2 weeks apart. Most patients need them about 2 weeks apart at first to get the acne under control then, they can go to about once a month.
Most people will look pretty rough afterwards and will remain swollen and red for 24-48 hours but it is very beneficial to getting the pores clean.
Skin Care consultation- This is at no charge and can be booked for 30 minutes. We will go over their needs and recommend products and provide samples for most of the items.
Waxing and tinting- We can wax facial areas but do not do bikini waxes. We use a chamomile wax that is very gentle. We also trim brows and shape them with the waxing treatment. Patients using Retin-a and acids have to refrain for 5 days because it thins the skin. Also, Patients who are on Accutane cannot get waxing. Wax- 10 minutes per area.
Tint$10- For brows
Makeup application- We can do a 30 minutes consult for no charge. We can apply the primer, powder and bronzer. However, we do not teach makeup or apply eyeshadow and so forth. So, it is really for a foundation match and understanding of the Colorscience line.
I like to have 1 hour booked for someone’s first visit with us upstairs. We consult and talk a lot about their skin care regimen. So, please encourage a one hour visit. Always ask if they are new upstairs to us and note that. They will leave with skin care ideas and regimen if they request that. We can also give samples.
Tip- It is really important to be diligent with a good home care regimen. So, if people ask what will their results be, just relay that it will depend on how they treat their skin after and staying out of direct sunlight.
