Is there any preparation required before undergoing an AlumierMD Skin Peel?

Preparing your skin for an AlumierMD peel can enhance the treatment results and reduce potential side effects. Here's what you should know about the preparation process:


Before anything, ensure you have a detailed consultation with your skincare professional to understand the procedure and any specific instructions.

Avoid Sun Exposure

Sunburned or tanned skin can react adversely to peels. Ensure you avoid direct sun exposure at least a week before your peel and use a broad-spectrum SPF.

Discontinue Retinoids

Stop using any retinoid products (like Retin-A) at least 5 days before the treatment as they can sensitive the skin.

Avoid Exfoliation

Refrain from using any exfoliating products or procedures, such as scrubs or microdermabrasion, a week before the treatment.

Stay Hydrated

Drink plenty of water leading up to your peel and moisturise your skin. Well-hydrated skin responds better to peels.

Home Care Routine

Using AlumierMD’s home care products before the peel can precondition the skin, making the peel more effective.

Inform about Medications

Make sure to let your professional know of any medications you’re on, especially antibiotics, as some can increase skin sensitivity.

Avoid Waxing

Don’t wax or use depilatory hair removal products on the area to be treated for at least a week before the procedure.

Steer Clear of Bleaching

If you bleach your facial hair, avoid doing so 3-4 days before your scheduled peel.

Stay Calm and Relaxed

Stress can influence skin reactions. Try to stay calm before your procedure, perhaps even engaging in relaxation techniques like meditation or deep breathing.

Adhering to these steps can make a noticeable difference in the results of your AlumierMD Skin Peel. Remember, the journey to radiant skin is a collaboration between you and your skincare professional.
