glo therapeutics offers a systematic approach to treat multiple skin concerns by incorporating daily regimens with advanced treatments. These advanced treatments, such as professional peels, are a crucial step in the transformation process and we are dedicated to utilizing innovative technology and active formulations to deliver noticeable results.

If you are considering visiting a licensed esthetician for a professional treatment, it’s important to educate yourself on the proper way to care for your skin before and after a peel. If the proper precaution and care is taken, the benefits of your peel will increase, and the chances of complication, or disappointment, can be diminished.

Before your peel, talk to your esthetician about the best homecare routine and begin the new regimen two weeks before your treatment. If the treatment is going to include a stronger peel, your esthetician might recommend using a product with Retinol, such a Renew Serum or Triple Action Serum, to help prep your skin.

Post peel, your skin can be in a delicate and compromised state for two to fourteen days, depending on the treatment. During this time, the at-home regimen should focus on products that promote healing and speed up recovery. Our all-new Post Peel Duo features a two step system that helps reduce irritation and protects delicate skin when in this compromised state. The Post Peel Duo contains a travel-sized Remedy Gel and a travel-sized Solar Shade SPF 50, making it the perfect post peel pairing and here’s why:

Because skin is in such a vulnerable state post peel, applying sunscreen is crucial to prevent unwanted sensitivity and hyperpigmentation. Solar Shade SPF 50 is the ideal solution because it uses minerals for its protectants and is an excellent product for sensitive skin. Another common issue post peel is itchy, uncomfortable and usually red skin. This is usually only the case for those of us who are prone to sensitivity and allergies, or who receive a strong peel. Remedy Gel helps relieve skin irritation while calming, soothing and healing the skin. Remedy Gel also helps reduce redness that can appear post peel.

We hope that with this information, you feel confident and prepared for your next professional treatment. To learn more about glo’s professional treatments or to find a local glo retailer, please call 1-800-232-0398.
