It’s important to note that everyone’s skin reacts differently to skincare products. If you have any concerns or experience adverse effects, it’s advisable to consult with a dermatologist or skincare professional. Additionally, following the provided guidelines for patch testing and gradually increasing peel duration can help minimize the risk of irritation or adverse reactions.
Step 1: Start with a gel-based cleanser, washing and patting the skin dry. Wipe the Peel Prep Solution across the treatment area to ensure a clean canvas.
Step 2: Apply the Glycolic 70% peel using a gauze pad, smoothing it over your face, neck, or décolletage. Avoid reapplying the acid to the same spot.
Step 3: For the first application, let the peel set for 3-5 minutes. Watch for any reactions and take note of the results. In subsequent treatments, you can extend the peel time to a maximum of 10 minutes. If the skin feels uneasy, a cool water gauze compress can help soothe the sensation.
Step 4: Remove the peel by applying the Neutralizer Solution directly over the treated area. Rinse your skin with cool water and gently pat it dry.
Step 5: Follow up with a hydrating serum, such as the Hyaluronic Replenish Serum. Complete your routine by applying a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 or higher.
Remember, every step counts in ensuring a safe and effective peel application.
