Avoid Sun Exposure: Protect your skin from excessive sun exposure for at least two weeks prior to the treatment. This helps minimize skin sensitivity and reduces the risk of complications.
Skincare Products: Discontinue the use of any retinol creams, alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), or other exfoliating products for at least one week before the ViPeel treatment. These products can sometimes cause skin irritation and may increase sensitivity during the treatment.
Avoid Certain Medications and Treatments: Prior to the treatment, inform your healthcare provider of any medications you are taking, especially those that can increase skin sensitivity, such as isotretinoin (Accutane). It is generally recommended to stop using these medications for a specified period before undergoing the ViPeel treatment. Additionally, avoid any other facial treatments, such as waxing or laser hair removal, for at least one week before your ViPeel.
Communicate Allergies or Skin Conditions: Inform your healthcare provider of any known allergies or skin conditions you may have, as this information is crucial in determining your suitability for the treatment and ensuring your safety.
Hydration: Ensure you are properly hydrated by drinking plenty of water in the days leading up to your ViPeel treatment. Hydrated skin tends to respond better to the procedure.
Plan for Downtime: The ViPeel treatment may cause some redness, peeling, and skin sensitivity in the treated area. Plan your schedule accordingly, allowing for a few days of potential downtime or limited social activities while your skin heals.
Arrival Without Makeup: Please arrive at your appointment without any makeup if possible.
Reschedule If Not Feeling Well: Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, develop a cold sore, blemish, or rash in the area to be treated.
Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not be treated. No exceptions.
Consent Forms: Please have your consent forms filled out prior to your appointment. If you did not receive consent forms, please reach out to our office at (909) 218-3993 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
