Use of AlumierMD home care products prior to your peel are recommended to prepare the skin, allow for better treatment results and reduce the risk of complications.

Please consult Dr N for appropriate recommendations for your skin type and condition.

Alumier MD skin treatments result in minimal to no

downtime but create dramatic and visible results.

Treatments can cause slight redness, tightness,

peeling, flaking or temporary dryness. Most patients do

not find it necessary to apply makeup, as the skin with

be smooth, dewy and radiant following your treatment.

Discontinue use of any product that irritates your skin and contact Dr N.

What to expect:

  • You should not necessarily expect to ‘peel’. However, you may have light to moderate flaking in a few localised areas for 3 to 7 days.

  • You may also experience residual redness, which lasts in most patients from 1 to 12 hours.

  • The evening of treatment your skin will feel tight and  ‘pulled’. Although you may or may not actually ‘peel’, it is likely that you will experience light ‘exfoliation’.

  • It may take 2 or more treatments to target the deeper layers of skin to loosen and ‘peel’. Courses of 6 are recommended, a minimum of two peels is required for any effect. You will need an assessment after your course of peels. 

 

Advice:​

  • Shaving should be avoided until peeled and healed.
