Informed Consent
Superficial chemical peels are topical exfoliants applied to the skin to soften the dead skin layer and
exfoliate the skin. Stimulating cell turnover will help to restore the skin to a more youthful appearance. Many skin conditions can be improved when receiving a series of peels. Fine lines will be softened, dull skin will appear more radiant, rough or uneven skin will become smoother. Sun damaged skin or blotchy skin will even out. Acne scarring may be softened. Because these peels are superficial there is no downtime. I am currently not taking or using any medications that are contraindicated to receiving a chemical peel. i.e. ACCUTANE I understand that anytime the skin barrier is compromised; there is a small risk of infection. I will contact my esthetician immediately should this happen. I understand that following the treatment my skin may appear red and feel like it has a slight sunburn. Possible side effects include and are not limited to: slight or extreme redness, swelling, stinging, itchy, tenderness, dry or flaking skin.
