RP peel

An effective peel for sun damaged skin. This will provide fast results in the reduction of pigmented areas and is great for acne with pigmented skin. The skin will peel over a five to seven day period, followed by enzyme therapy. This treatment is excellent for larger areas of the body, including arms and legs. Homecare is essential.

What is RP Revision and what can it treat?
RP Revision treatments are intended to remove the surface epidermal cells of the skin. The treatment program has been designed to help reduce wrinkles, light scarring, and uneven skin tones. It may be used on most skin types (except people with a typically darker oriental or sub-continental complexion and some darker skin tones which can be prone to pigmentation). The RP solution is an exclusive blend of natural plant and fruit sugar acids, applied systematically in layers. The strength of the solution and the number of layers is tailored to suit your skin colour, texture, sensitivity and condition by your DMK skin technician. The procedure usually takes between 5 and 10 days and results will vary from person to person as each individual’s skin will respond differently.

What is the procedure for RP Revision?
1. You should have at least two DMK Enzyme Treatments before having an RP Revision Treatment.
2. One week before your scheduled RP Revision Treatment, you will notice that while using the retosin, your skin may begin to look leathery and darker. This is normal.
3. On the day of your RP Revision Treatment, your technician will begin applying separate layers of the RP solution. You will experience some very uncomfortable stinging and burning sensations during these applications, these sensations will subside.
If the irritation becomes too uncomfortable, let your technician know so that the solution can be adjusted for further applications.
4. After the application is completed, you will leave the solution on your skin and will not wash for at least 12 hours. Your skin will look shiny and may be slightly red. If your skin continues to have a burning sensation, rinse with a mild solution of baking soda and water.
5. Beginning the next day following the RP Revision Treatment, you can start cleansing your skin as normal with your DMK cleanser followed by a small amount of acu crème or contraderm crème as prescribed. You must apply transdermal sunblock if you are going to have any exposure to the sun. Should you choose, you can also start using makeup as desired. Do not use a solarium.
6. By the third day, you should begin to notice your skin beginning to peel. This will vary from minor flaking to large peeling sections depending on your skin condition. Regardless of how severe the peeling is, you must not pull, pick, or scratch at the dead skin.
To do so will increase the chance of infection. It is very important that you allow this skin to detach naturally. You may be surprised at just how much flaking occurs, do not worry this is normal. You will feel very unattractive and uncomfortable but this will subside.
7. By the seventh day, most of this dead skin will have exfoliated (detached) itself from the healthy new cells below. On this day,
you will be scheduled for an Enzyme Lift-off Treatment. This treatment helps remove any remaining dead cells that have not completely exfoliated.
8. You must use your regular DMK Home Prescriptives and continue with your professional maintenance treatments in order to maintain your results.

NOTE: This treatment should give improvement and restoration to the appearance of your skin. However, each individual’s result will vary depending on their skin type and condition. While many will be satisfied with just one treatment, others may require several treatments over a period of time to achieve their desired results.

Are there any possible side effects?
It is possible that you may experience some of the following temporary contraindications as a result of this treatment.
• Swelling or tightness of the skin.
• Redness and irritation of the skin.
• Stinging and burning sensation to the skin.
• Blistering, weeping or scabbing of the skin. If this occurs, notify your practitioner and begin using an antibacterial salve or other treatment as prescribed by your physician to avoid possible infection.
• An outbreak of pimples if impurities have been locked under the skin.
• Excessive peeling of the skin.
• Darkening of skin prior to exfoliation as underlying pigment moves to the surface.
• Increased photosensitivity of the skin. Reduce problems by using transdermal sunblock.
• Although these contraindications may be uncomfortable, they should not result in any permanent damage as long as you inform your technician of any problems and follow any instructions you are given. As with any treatment, there is always a very small possibility that you could have a negative reaction that your technician could not predict.
