Do I need to stop any skincare before this peel?

Stop Accutane, Lightening products (Hydroquinone, Triluma, Cyspera etc) and strong acids (Glycolic acid, Retinol / Retinoids, Mandelic acid, Vitamin C) or peels for 5-7 days before you start using this peel. 

How do I use this peel?

Only apply this peel at night as this acid leaves your skin photosensitive. 

2 layers done over 1 single session is recommended – Apply 1st layer, wait for 5-10 minutes to ensure that it doesn’t sting, and then apply the 2nd layer. Sleep. Wash the peel off after 8 hours or overnight (3 hours or sooner for sensitive skin, or reduced peeling effect). 

 

Avoid inhaling as you apply the peel near your nose areas as it may smart a little should you breathe in. 

Will I feel itchy or painful during the peel?

The peel should not hurt or cause you to itch upon application.

Where else can I use this peel on?

Chemical peels are most commonly used on the face, but can be used on other body areas such as the chest, back, shoulders, décolletage, neck, hands and feet. (Eyelids are excluded.)

Please avoid the eye and lip area.

How soon and how long will I be peeling for?

Peeling will start to take place after 2 days and last about 2-4 days. Your skin may feel dry during this period.

How often can I use the retinol peel?

This is a one time peel i.e. not daily skincare.

A minimum wait of 6-8 weeks is recommended in-between peel sessions.  

A vial is 1.5ml and you can get 1.5 – 2 sessions out of it should you use it sparingly. 

Can I use this if I have sensitive skin?

If you have eczema, this is not recommended. However for certain types of sensitive skin, you can wash off after 3 hours.

I am pregnant / nursing / breastfeeding - Can I still use this peel?

It is not recommended. 

What results should I expect after the retinol peel?

Superficial peels are often conducted in a series of several peels to demonstrate noticeable effects on skin including:

  • Improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Evening of skintone 
  • Better skin texture 
  • Visual softening of acne scars and big pores 
  • Improved clarity and glow by treating dullness
  • Reduced appearance of blemishes 

This does not necessarily help with pigmentation that sits on the deeper layers of the skin. Lasers would be better recommended for that purpose. 

Can I peel the skin off with my hands?

Try not to! You can rub gently with wet hands in the shower, but your skin might feel raw and dry after.

What is included in the complimentary skincare kit?

The complimentary skincare kit is limited and while stocks last. 

It contains sample sizes of the following:  

  • NeoStrata Facial Cleanser (10ml)
  • NeoStrata Bionic Serum (2x 2ml sachets)
  • NeoStrata Bionic Face Cream (10ml)
  • Heliocare AC Sunscreen (5ml) 

Some of the above products do contain very low and safe levels of acids suitable for usage post-peel / laser, have been tested to not cause any sting. However, different skin may react differently, so you should always proceed with caution.  

Is there anything I should avoid?

Avoid exfoliating scrubs or chemical exfoliative ingredients – no acids, actives or alcohol for 5-7 days post peel. 

Try not to! You can rub gently with wet hands in the shower, but your skin might feel raw and dry after.

I love the skincare provided. Where can I get the full sized items?

For Neostrata items – neostrata.com.sg

For Heliocare items – do visit neoasiaderm.com.sg, and you may use the code MIZU for clinic prices & GWPs. 

Do I need to apply sunblock even when I am home?

Yes! Peels and acids can render your skin photosensitive and this may cause darkening. Sunblock proves protection against UVA/UVB rays which are reflected in the house, and some sunscreen can also protect you against IR-A and VL / Blue light.

When can I go back to using acids / should I continue using acids after the peel?

Acids can be gently introduced back into your skincare routine from the 5th or 7th day on. Always test a small area before full face application. 

My face stings from using the skincare provided / my own skincare. What do I do?

Stop using that skincare product and only use soothing, calming products. Teleconsultations are still available till 31st May. 

Can I use my own skincare during the peel?

Some products may not contain acid but still sting – try to use gentle, soothing skincare and always test on a small area on the face before proceeding with full face application.
