Treats: uneven skin tone, damaged skin, fine lines, melasma, large pores, texture, hyperpigmentation, and scarring.

Frequency: Patients will typically only have one treatment but may wish to repeat the process until they reach their desired result and then maintain yearly.

Follow Up: Follow up is recommended 1 month after treatment, to review results and for photos.

Prep: Patients should discontinue topical retinols, retinoids, alpha hydroxyl acids, and any other products that may cause irritation 1 week prior to treatment, and for 6 weeks post treatment.

Downtime: There is a significant amount of peeling that lasts around 7-10 days. Patients should be informed that little to no sun exposure is recommended during the peeling process and for several weeks after.
