Skinceuticals SM — Salicylic and Mandelic Acid Peel Application Guidelines

The treatment location is set up prior to performing the peel.

Peel Procedure Supplies:

Slightly elevate the patient's head.

The actual application to the face should be performed rapidly to achieve a uniform peel with equal saturation time in all areas.

Your goal should be to apply the peel to the entire face within 15 to 20 seconds.

As a safety precaution, it is best to start application in an area that is least reactive or sensitive.

The forehead usually can safely tolerate 15 to 30 seconds more exposure to the acid than the cheeks or chin.

Areas of the skin that have a thinner stratum corneum absorb the acid faster.

This is commonly seen in the nasolabial fold, the periorbital area and the upper chin.

Closely monitor the patient during the peel for any unusual reaction or signs of discomfort.

While a slight stinging sensation and mild erythema are considered normal for this treatment, symptoms such as a strong burning sensation, intense erythema, headache, nausea, dizziness or heart palpitations indicate an adverse reaction.

Should this occur, immediately remove the peel with plenty of cold water.

If the symptoms do not subside within a few minutes, the supervising dermatologist or another physician should be consulted.
