what should I expect when I first start using these?

Because this treatment promotes cell turnover (shedding that old skin), it's normal to see some dry, red or flaky spots in the beginning. To help with the dry spots, you can use a moisturizer—but be sure it's free of alcohol, benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid and other exfoliators to avoid extra irritation. Connect with a doctor through our platform if you are concerned about any reaction you're experiencing.
