The Perfect Derma Peel
How does The Perfect Derma Peel compare to other peels?
The Perfect Derma Peel is a medium depth medical grade peel that combines powerful ingredients with effective acids to deliver outstanding results after even just one treatment. This unique formula allows for an increase in lifting of fine lines and wrinkles as well as reducing hyperpigmentation including Melasma. The Perfect Derma Peel is a non-invasive, virtually painless treatment with
only 2-7 days of peeling.
Q: How many treatments are necessary for visible improvement?
After one treatment of The Perfect Derma Peel, overall skin tone and complexion will appear smooth, glowing and fresh. Depending on skin conditions, multiple treatments may be necessary for desired results. A series of 2-3 treatments applied once every 4 weeks will allow for optimal results for more severe skin conditions such as Melasma and active acne.
Q: How long will my results last?
As long as the skin is maintained with proper skin care products like The Perfect A, The Perfect C, and The Perfect Bleaching Cream the improved results will last. We recommend 2 – 4 treatments of The Perfect Derma Peel per year to sustain
desired results for regular maintenance and rejuvenation.
Q: What skin types respond well to The Perfect Derma Peel?
All skin types (Fitzpatrick 1-6) and all ethnicities are safe to treat and will benefit from The Perfect Derma Peel.
Q: Can makeup be worn post peel?
The day the peel is applied the patient should not put any make up or other products on his or her face post peel.
Makeup may be worn on day 2 of the peeling process, but we recommend going as long as possible without it.
Q: Will The Perfect Derma Peel help improve acne and acne scars?
The Perfect Derma Peel formula was designed to help improve various problematic skin conditions, including acne. The Perfect Derma Peel helps minimize the damage and scarring that can result from acne. Glutathione helps increase cellular turnover
thus reducing stubborn acne scars. A series of peels is required.
Q: How many treatments are necessary to resolve acne scars?
Depending on the severity of the scarring, a series of 3-4 peels spaced four weeks apart is recommended for optimal results. The number of treatments will also depend on how vigorously the layers are applied.
Q: How will The Perfect Derma Peel improve my skin?
The Perfect Derma Peel will reduce or eliminate hyper pigmentation, sun damage and Melasma. It will control Acne and reduce Acne Scars. In addition, it will help erase fine lines and wrinkles, reduce enlarged pores and build collagen and elastin
for a healthier, firmer complexion. The overall tone, texture and clarity of the skin will be improved.

7 STEPS FOR AN EASY PEEL PROCESS
Peel Season is Officially Here!
Why Choose The Perfect Derma Peel?
Chemical Peels exfoliate the top dead layers of skin to reveal healthy, new skin cells and a fresher, more refined complexion.
Superficial peels offered at day spas can give the skin a nice glow, but medical grade peels offer longer lasting results. Bella Medical Products uses well known, safe and effective acids in low percentages to ensure a great result for all ethnicities,
with little risk of side effects. When The Perfect Derma Peel is performed in a series of 3 peels (typically once a month for three months) patients see clearer, more youthful skin and diminished signs of aging.
While no doctor or medical spa can guarantee a specific result for a single cosmetic procedure,
Be sure to prep your skin (and your schedule) and plan your “down time” properly so that you enjoy an easy,
stress free process and most of all, absolutely gorgeous results!
Steps for an Easy Peel Process:
1. Talk to your Aesthetician about your home skin care routine when booking your appointment.
Let the Aesthetician know if you are using any retinoids or tretinoin products. If so, you’ll want to discontinue them for 3 days before your peel to avoid excess irritation. You’ll also want to avoid other cosmetic procedures in the weeks before your peel, so let your provider know if you are planning anything stronger than a facial.
2. Protect yourself against a cold sore outbreak.
Prone to cold sores? They’re very common and affect 80% of the population. Chemical procedures can trigger an outbreak, which is the last thing you want to deal with when your skin is peeling! Be sure and ask your Doctor for an antiviral to be taken several days before your peel in order to avoid getting a cold sore while your skin is already sensitive and may be irritated.
If you need a prescription, let us know.
3. Take a break from your workout.
Peels cause a controlled, minor injury to the skin to stimulate the growth of healthy new skin cells. For this reason, it’s ideal to avoid sweating or heating your skin, as the peel application caused temporary inflammation and you don’t want to make it worse. You can safely practice gentle yoga (no hot yoga!), stretch or take a walk, etc. as long as you don’t break a sweat.
Skip the swimming pool, hot tub and saunas until your skin is completely healed.
4. Show up to your appointment with a clean face and a hat.
If possible, wear minimal or no make up to your appointment, especially if you plan to peel the skin around the eyes. It’s not absolutely essential, but it will make your prep go quicker and easier. Makeup and other products affect the way the peel penetrates and even though your Aesthetician will clean and prep your skin, it’s helpful to come with a bare face.
Since you will not apply any products after the peel application (not even SPF), it’s a good idea to wear a hat
on your drive homeor back to the office.
5. Follow instructions exactly.
The Perfect Derma Peel has many happy patients of all Skin Types who use our products regularly.
We’ve created a protocol that supports your process and results. Please be sure to read each step in the patient take home booklet and follow the recommendations. It is essential to use both Post Peel towelettes at home. It is equally important to use plenty of SPF beginning day two, and to use our special post peel moisturizer once the peeling begins.
It’s essential to protect your skin from irritation during the exfoliation process, so no harsh products, AHA’s or tretinoin, hot water, scrubbing or clarisonic brushes. DO NOT pull at or remove peeling skin as this can cause scaring. Be patient!
The dead skin will slough off when you wash your skin. The results will be worth it!
If you’re not sure about something, or have any concerns, please call us directly for advice.
6. Avoid any important work or social plans on days 3-6 post peel.
“Day 1” is the day of your peel appointment. Most patients look fine, if a bit sunburned, on the day of the peel, though they sometimes feel minor irritation. On Day 2, the skin may feel sensitive and tight, but make up can be used to hide any pinkness or blotchiness.
Most patients peel visibly on Days 3-4 or even days 3-6, especially first timers, so it’s not the best time to go on a first date or make a major sales presentation at work. Instead, have your girlfriends over for dinner, a movie or game night, or curl up with that great book you’ve been meaning to finish. Since your skin will be more sensitive to the sun for at least a couple of weeks, don’t plan a peel right before a tropical getaway or other sunny destination vacation.
If peeling before an important reunion, wedding or other event, we advise having your peel 2 weeks or more
before your event – even longer if it’s YOUR wedding!
7. Protect your skin and prolong your peel treatment
results with the right products.
To ensure the best possible results and avoid hyper pigmentation, be extra vigilant with daily use of a mineral broad spectrum SPF the first week post peel, and ideally for life. Make up with SPF added is not adequate protection by itself. This is the single most important thing you can do to enjoy healthy, beautiful skin for life, at any age. Remember to apply a generous amount of SPF 30 or above
before leaving the house.
Ask your Aesthetician about adding The Perfect A or The Perfect Bleaching Cream to your daily skin care regimen to help
enhance and prolong your peel results.
