Directions for use
First Timers - It is advised for first time users to begin with a lower strength 20% Lactic Acid treatment. Initially cleanse the skin with a suitable cleanser / toner. Take a cotton pad and dampen with the solution. Apply the damp cotton pad to a small area of the cheek and wait 1-2 minutes, and then wash with plenty of warm water to remove the peel. Then access your skin tolerance for this % of Lactic Acid skin peel.
There should be no redness, burning or formation of blisters during the treatment. If this is the case discontinue use as your skin type is too sensitive for the Lactic Acid peel treatment. But, the skin can turn light pink during the peel process, after 48hrs the skin colour will return to normal.
General Procedure – Wipe a dampened cotton pad over the face with 20%-60% Lactic Acid Skin Peel (80% lactic acid peel should be diluted before use with water). Leave for 2 mins then wash off with plenty of warm water. Repeat every week increasing the time period of the peel on the face by 1 min each time for a period of 6 weeks in total. After the 6 weeks it is advised to allow the skin to rejuvenate for at least 2 weeks before beginning a further treatment regime. After each treatment use moisturizer to ensure the skin does not dry out. During sunny weather wear the appropriate sun screen to protect the newly exposed skin cells (SPF15 is recommended).
During the treatment phase the skin will peel and appear flaky after 1-2 days after treatment. This is a part of the treatment removing the dead skin cells.
