This is a wonderful peel for those dealing with aging and pigmented skin. Lactic Acid will exfoliate the outer surface of the skin and encourage new cell turnover. It is a natural humectant, pulling moisture from the collagen levels to the surface of skin. It is an excellent acid choice for dry and sundamaged skin. This treatment is relatively non-irritating with very little, if any, down time. Our Lactic acid peel has been enhanced with a "skin lightening" and " anti-aging" cocktail of herbal remedies.
Lactic is a mild acid and can be applied 1-2X per week to keep skin moist and exfoliated. *To determine sensitivity, perform a patch test (behind ear) and check in 24 hours for excessive irritation.
Read all precautions before beginning!
1. READ ALL PRECAUTIONS ON REVERSE SIDE
2. Thoroughly cleanse all areas that are to be treated with a deep cleanser. *The 10% Glycolic is ideal.
3. Gently wipe Peel Prep A onto all areas to be peeled.
4. Get a timer and set it for desired peel time. (see chart on reverse side).
5. Pour a small amount of peel solution into medicine cup.
6. Fold a guaze pad in half and dip into solution. Wipe any excess off on cup.
7. Apply peel in a HORIZONTAL motion across the entire face/neck.
8. Apply peel again, this time in a VERTICAL motion across the entire face/neck. *This is to ensure the best coverage possible. (The cheek, lip and nose areas are the most sensitive, so they should be done last to avoid excess irritation—Avoid eye and mucus membrane areas). *Your skin should not be dripping wet! Just wipe it on like you would any toner. *A stinging/itching sensation is normal when using the Glycolic Peel Solution. Watch for any redness and neutralize acid with a dab of water if necessary.
9. Apply Neutralizer. Rinse with cool water.
10. Pat skin dry and follow with a plain moisturizer, Hyaluronic 100 or Emu oil are excellent choices. (Now is not the time for any active ingredients a.k.a. glycolic, retinol etc..)
11. *Make sure that you use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. (Because this product may make your skin more sensitive to the sun, be certain you have adequate sunscreen protection while using this product and for a week afterwards). *per FDA
12. Repeat next week on the same "spa" day!
1. I think the solution I purchased was too strong for me. How can I lessen the %? You can lessen the percentage by mixing in either pure aloe gel or purified water (in a separate container) by following the formula 2/3 Peel solution 1/3 Aloe or Water.
2. I think the solution I purchased was too weak for me. What can I do? EXTENDING TIMES! If you have reached your maximum time, and you still feel you need more, don’t waste your solution. *You can apply the solution in layers to keep it active. Apply solution, wait 2 minutes and reapply again. This will drop the pH level back down so you can leave it on for longer! You may apply again if needed.
3. I do not see peeling, is it working? Just because you do not see any visible flaking does not mean the peel isn’t working. Most of the loosened skin comes off during your daily cleansings. If you skin “feels” smoother, it is working. Lactic is meant to moisturize more than flake.
4. How many peels will I get from my bottle? 2oz. = 45 peels, 4oz. = 91 peels (average 20 drops pr peel). ü If you have any medical questions as to whether you should be performing these peels...Consult your physician or dermatologist before you proceed!
