40% Mandelic Acid Peel - pH 2.0
 
This is not a beginning peel. ***Do not use this peel unless you have successfully used our 25% Mandelic Acid Peel for at least 6-8 applications.***
 
What is Mandelic Acid?

Mandelic Acid is an alpha hydroxy acid. Derived from bitter almonds, it has a number of benefits for the skin.

The molecular structure of mandelic acid is larger than better-known alpha hydroxy acids such as glycolic acid and lactic acid. This means it takes longer to penetrate the skin's surface and is much less irritating.

Benefits

--Rapidly exfoliates dead skin cells and surface debris from the skin.
--Mandelic acid has antimicrobial/antibacterial properties, making it an excellent choice for all types of acne, including cystic acne.
--Loosens blackheads for easy extraction.
--Cleans and refines pores.
--Refines the tone and texture of the skin, brightens.
--Mandelic acid is excellent for clients with darker skin tones. It does not cause the unwanted, lighter skin tone changes that you might experience with other AHA's.
--Mandelic acid inhibits the growth of melanin, the cause of brown patches, freckles, uneven skin tone, and other sun-related skincare issues.
--Mandelic acid, with continued use, can help repair sun-damaged skin.
--Mandelic acid reduces lines and wrinkles without the irritation of other AHA's.
--Mandelic is typically an excellent exfoliator for clients suffering from Rosacea.

What can I expect when using this peel?

Upon application, within the first minute-or-so, you will feel very little topical sensation... it will be a warm tingling sensation. This acid penetrates more slowly than others, due to its larger molecular size, but don't be fooled. It *is* processing your skin, so please follow directions as written and use a non-acid moisture post peel.

Post peel you'll see some light flaking, perhaps more apparent around the mouth and nasal areas.

Important:

This product is *not* a serum. It has a watery consistency, so either dip a q-tip into the bottle for application or remove the cap, place a gauze pad on the open bottle and tip it over to soak the gauze, then apply.
Instructions listed above, under the corresponding tab.

General Cautions:

  • Never use manual exfoliators nor scrubbing brushes within 24 hours of using a peel.
  • Stop Retin A, benzoyl peroxides, acne products and any other drying agents 24 hours before and after using an alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy peel.
  • If you are allergic to aspirin products, never use a salicylic acid nor beta hydroxy peel.
  • Never apply a peel without doing a patch-test first and waiting 48 hours for results.
  • Never apply a chemical peel to inflamed skin.
  • Always read product directions in their entirety and don't take shortcuts.
  • Use our BellEvolve Advanced Repair Cream for skin that has been chemically over-processed. It contains advanced healing agents that will quickly get your skin back to normal.
  • When in doubt about a caution, please write or call us for more information.
