Proposed schema of the treatment

Phase I – Make-up removal
Remove eye and lip make-up with Face & Lip Make-up Removal Lotion. Cleanse the face, neck and décolleté with Satin Make-up Removing Milk. Balance the skin with Satin Gel Toner.
Phase II – Gentle cleansing
Wear latex or vinyl gloves. The pre-exfoliation gel should be applied on damp face, neck and décolleté. Gently massage the skin to cleanse it, then rinse it with water and dry with a cosmetic wipe.
Phase III – Peeling
Apply suitable quantity of 20% Glycolic Acid from a glass or porcelain bowl. It is recommended to use a dry brush made of natural hair. Apply glycolic acid starting from Zone 1, remember to monitor skin reactions and to neutralize any inflamed areas by removing excess acid with a cosmetic pad. Neutralize, rinse and gently dry Zone 1. Apply glycolic acid onto Zone 2, 3, 4 and 5 following the same procedure.PLEASE NOTE:Carefully monitor the skin reactions and the patient’s condition to determine the individual application time.The application time depends on the acid concentration. Recommended application times: 1st treatment (20%) 4 min., 2nd treatment (20%) 4-6 min., 3rd treatment (20%) 6-8 min., 4th treatment (30%) 2 min., 5th treatment (30%) 4 min., 6th treatment (30%) 5-6 min.

Start with the lowest concentration (1st treatment). If the patient decides to have a series of 6 treatments, apply 20% concentration of glycolic acid during the first three treatments, and use 30% concentration during the last three applications. The recommended concentrations may be modified based on skin type and the skin’s reactions to the preparation. Should any acute skin reactions occur (acute burning sensation, reddening, prickling), immediately remove glycolic acid with the neutralizer. Rinse the skin with lukewarm water and dry with cosmetic wipes.

Phase IV – Treatment
