Is SWICH™ safe?
When performed on the appropriate candidate, it is very safe and does not burn the skin, as traditional peel treatments can. SWiCH™ is a leave-on system. The active ingredients remain to provide longevity in repair and restoration. The client uses special home care for three days. Treatments may be repeated at monthly intervals for 6 to 12 months for maximum cumulative effects.
Does this treatment cause peeling?
A warm sensation may be experienced during the treatment for about sixty seconds. Most
clients experience little or no peeling. Some red- ness may result which subsides in a few hours.
It is important to follow the instructions on the home care kit provided after the
treatment. Follow the directions of your skin care professional before and after a SWiCH™ treatment.
Can I continue to use Retin-A®/Renova®? Your professional will evaluate your skin and recommend the products you need to use prior to a SWiCH treatment. You will discontinue use of retinol products 14 days prior to treatment, and follow the recommendations to extend and enhance your results.
How often is a treatment performed? Every four- to- six weeks, for 6-12 sessions, or as recommended by your skin care specialist.
Can I return to work or apply makeup? You will continue to use the after-care cleanser and cream for three days after SWiCH. Makeup may be applied the day after treatment. Eye makeup and lipstick may be worn immediately.
Is there special care after treatment? Yes, you will be given products to take home and recommendations for daily use between treatments. Follow the directions of your skin care professional.
Who should not use SWiCH™? SWiCH™ should not be used by anyone who is pregnant, nursing, or allergic to aspirin or salicylates. Cancer patients may not receive SWiCH. You will discontinue use of any products containing Vitamin A for 14 days prior to treatment and will not use Vitamin A for one month afterward. Ask your skin care professional if SWiCH™ is right for you.
