How do i prepare for it?

To maximise the desired features of this facial treatment, the use of DermaQuest Pre-Skin Therapy’s Skin Resurfacing Program should be practiced for at least four to six weeks prior to treatment for lighter skin types, and eight weeks for darker tones. This program advises an appropriate cleanser according to the client’s skin type, Advanced B5 Serum or Peptide Mobilizer, Collagen Activating Complex, DermaHeal, Rejuvederm (pm only), Skin Vitalight or the Skin Lightening Serum (twice a day for hyperpigmented and darker skin tones), and ZinClear SPF 30. These products will provide the support and protection your client’s skin should have before undergoing this treatment.

What happens during the procedure?

During the professional treatment, a Post Skin Resurfacing Balm may be applied at the corners of your eyes and the sides of your nose and directly onto your lips to prevent peeling and dryness in these areas.

This treatment may cause increased sensitivity to the skin depending on your skin type and home care regime. Side effects may include: stinging, itching-irritation, redness, swelling, tightness, peeling and scabbing of the skin. Avoid sweating, exercising, hot baths or showers, scrubbing, picking or rubbing, which could lead to scarring.

If you are normally on retinoids and/or alpha hydroxy acid products, they may be re-introduced once the skin has healed. Protect the skin from direct sun exposure with a broad spectrum sunscreen for a minimum of 3 days post-treatment to prevent hyperpigmentation. A hat may be worn if necessary. Your compliance with the use of daily sun protection on an ongoing basis is mandatory, especially with exfoliation treatments.

The Pumpkin Resurfacer can be performed in a series of 6 treatments, scheduled 1-2 weeks apart, 2 times per year. Normally, the treatments begin with the Primary Pumpkin Resurfacer and are upgraded to the Power Pumpkin Resurfacer during the course of the series, once the skin is conditioned to the Primary Pumpkin Resurfacer.

A patch test must be performed at least 72 hours before the actual peel is performed.

What happens afterwards?

Until the skin is completely healed, you should follow the DermaQuest Skin Therapy Post-Skin Resurfacing Program, which recommends the use of an Anti-inflammatory Cleanser, Advanced B5 Serum, Collagen Activating Complex, Antioxidant Soothing Serum, Skin Vitalight and ZinClear SPF 30. All products must be applied twice daily, except for ZinClear SPF 30, to keep the skin well hydrated post treatment; while the skin is peeling. Post Skin Resurfacing Balm may be applied as well, if deemed necessary.
