Dr. Anita SmartSkin: Dorian Grey Peel™
Dr. Anita’s SmartSkin Dorian Grey Peel™ is a Retinoid-based topical treatment that stimulates cell turn over and collagen production deep within the skin.
Suitable for all skin types, this treatment is a good option for patients with light to medium hyper-pigmentation, light to moderate sun damage, and mild to moderate acne. We also recommend this treatment for patients seeking to address the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, or for patients seeking to firm and tone skin, while smoothing texture and refining pores.
How is it applied?
This treatment is applied in-office and depending on skin type, remains on the skin for 1 to 2 hours. The treatment is then rinsed off, and a combination of moisturizer and sunscreen is applied.
This treatment is used in conjunction with a home-care regimen developed by Dr. Anita Dormer to be used several times a week during the course of the peel to maximize treatment benefit.
After treatment, patients are given a post-peel kit containing products formulated to work in synergy with Dr. Anita's SmartSkin™ Dorian Grey Peel, along with personalized directions for use.
How do I prepare for my treatment?
Five to seven days prior to your appointment we recommend that you avoid the following products and medications:
• Any products containing Retinol, AHA, BHA, or Benzyl Peroxide
• Retin-A (Tretinoin)
• Differin (Adapsline)
• Tazorac (Tazarotene)
• Avage (Tazarotene)
Additionally, we suggest avoiding exfoliating products as they may irritate or over dry your skin prior to treatment.
What should I expect after the treatment?
Post-treatment your skin may feel tight and be slightly flushed, however any discomfort is easily treated with moisturizer. Patients are given take-home instructions as well as Dr. Anita products designed to work in synergy with this treatment for maximum benefit.
Patients are advised to avoid direct sun exposure for 10 days as well as strenuous exercise for 48 hours after treatment.
Patients can expect peeling to begin around 48 hours after treatment. Peeling may last between 2 to 5 days.
Some patients will not experience a significantly visible peel phase. This is not a sign of unresponsiveness. The peel is simply working subsurface. These patients will still see hyper-pigmentation minimize, as well as improvements in tone and texture, post-peel.
Occasionally, some patients may develop swelling, redness, rash as a result of the normal progression of the treatment. If this occurs or concerns you, or if you experience severe swelling or severe rash and discomfort, please contact your doctor for further instructions.
How many treatments are required?
For best results, we recommend this treatment be repeated 4 times per year as part of your on going skincare regimen.
To maximize the benefit of your peel in between treatments, we encourage the maintenance use of Dr. Anita brand products. These products are designed to work in synergy with the active ingredients in the peel and to address the support needs of a Retinoid skincare regimen.
