What is AMCC Facial Peel?

—————————————————————————


AMCC Facial Peel improves the tone, texture, and clarity of the skin. It reduces or eliminates age spots, addresses hyperpigmentation and softens fine lines and wrinkles. The AMCC Facial peel is an excellent choice for healthier, firmer, and more youthful skin. AMCC Facial Peel is suitable for exfoliating the face and body. It also has vitamins and minerals which nurture the skin at the same time as it is going through the exfoliation process. These peels are practical, affordable and give excellent results to patients in as little as one week. According to ASAPS data, facial peel is the 4th most performed noninvasive procedure in the US with over 1 million done each year.


AMCC Facial Peel is for all skin types, body treatments, and keratosis pilaris. It has active ingredients including TCA, Salicylic Acid, Retinoic Acid, Phenol, Vitamin C and a proprietary mineral blend.


The youngest age suggested for the AMCC Facial Peel is around 12 to 13 years old and can go all the way through mature age ranges. It is always best to check with your medical practitioner to see if you are a good candidate for the AMCC Facial Peel.

Results:

————————————————————————————————

Body peeling varies in both timing and amount of exfoliation. Typically we see the process take longer and not be as prominent as the face. Peeling may take 10-14 days to start. So patience is key. Also, with this treatment you may see the skin become worse before clearing as the oils are brought to the surface.


Also just because a patient doesn't peel in sheets, doesn't mean the peel is not working. If a person does exfoliate often their skin may not peel heavily. Body parts usually flake versus heavy peeling as well. The peel is still working at the cellular level impacting collagen and elastin bringing new skin to the surface.


Things to Do:

————————————————————————————————

  • All skincare products provided by us are safe to use 7 days after you receive the peel

  • For a basic regiment it is suggested to cleanse, hydrate and protect the skin with the cleanser, advanced firming lotion and SPF 50+ sunscreen

  • It is recommended to use a small cuticle scissor to trim the exfoliating skin

  • You can also go and wash the face to help gently remove the hanging skin

  • If washing the face multiple times a day, be sure to add moisture back to the skin by applying the coconut oil

  • You also MUST use the SPF 50+ sunscreen to protect the skin during and after the exfoliation process.

  • We recommend that pregnant or breastfeeding women always consult with their healthcare provider before using any products. There are suggestions in the FDA guidelines that certain ingredients should be avoided including hydroquinone, salicylic acid, retinoids and chemical sunscreens.  


Things to Avoid:

————————————————————————————————

  • NEVER PULL BACK on the skin that is shedding

  • Let your skin do its thing, don’t pick at your peel (or you could cause scarring and discoloration) and you will be fine

  • You need to refrain from activities that raise the body temperature significantly and can induce sweating for 72-96 hours (3-4 days). Inducing excessive perspiration/sweating may cause blistering or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation in the skin.

 

Side Effects:

————————————————————————————————

  • If the skin seems to have redness/chapping during the peeling process and it is uncomfortable, that means it needs to heal and rehydrate to normal levels. You can use Aquaphor to help heal the irritated skin in that area.

  • PIH – Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation can arise following any facial peel. The potential for inflammation to instigate the melanogenesis process resulting in pigment deposition.
