Pro-G Peel 35
The Pro-G Peel 35 chemical peel is a more aggressive step up from the Pro-G 70 peel. It is great for most skin types except for sensitive, very dry, or rosacea skins. This peel is also best performed in a series of 6-8, weekly or bi-monthly. This is often used after the Pro-G 70 has been performed as a way to increase the intensity and efficacy of treatment. Improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, luminosity, uneven skin tone and age/sun spots will be seen as well as acne and acne scarring. The copper tripeptides in the peel help produce a firmer skin texture and heal the skin faster and more dramatically.
Questions and Answers:
What is the Pro-G Peel 35, and what are its benefits?
The Pro-G Peel 35 is contains glycolic acid, a type of AHA or alpha hydroxy acid. It is used in many over-the-counter products. In this chemical peel, it is used as an aggressive way to break down the bonds between cells allowing for easier exfoliation of dead skin cells, excess pigment and clogged pores and debris.
I get cold sores sometimes. Should I worry that I will get one after getting the Pro-G Peel 35?
Any treatments being done around the mouth or nose area can trigger an outbreak of a cold sore, therefore, you will require a prophylactic treatment with an antiviral agent to help prevent recurrence of an outbreak. This is a typical question when you are getting your consultation, however, you should always let your provider be aware that you do get cold sores.
I am going to the beach next week. Can I have the Pro-G Peel 35 today?
All chemical peels will increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun and possibility of sunburn. This one contains an AHA or alpha hydroxy acid. You should always use a broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF of at least 30, wear protective clothing with a wide-brimmed hat, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for at least a week afterwards (and always). So, the answer to the question would be—no. You should wait at least a week after you return home also.
