You should have learned that the longer you keep the gel on, stronger and deeper the peeling effects of the product. Apply the gel on a fourth untreated Age Spot and keep the gel on for 1 hour, no longer. Wipe off and rinse with water. Make sure the gel does not get in contact with the eyes. In case you have only one or two Age Spots wait a minimum of one week (not one day) between each patch test application on the same Age Spots.
The above patch tests will serve for you to get used to the way the Gel works on your skin. You should have learned that the longer you keep the gel on the more the peeling effects of the product on your Age Spots. In the unlikely event of an adverse reaction of the gel stop using it.
Modality of Application.
Wash your hands.
Cleanse and dry thoroughly the area where the product will be applied. Use the degreasing protocol if required.
Apply on your brown spots and surrounding area as you would in the normal skin chemical peel protocol. If your Age spots are on your face you can apply the gell on your entire face if you desire.
Keep the gel on for as long as you deem necessary to achieve the desired skin peel effects which will eventually lead to the removal of your age spots. There is no maximum length of application this is decided by you, based on your skin reaction to the High Grade Glycolic acid Gel.
Once you are satisfied with the degree of ablation, wipe off the Glycolic Acid Gel using a clean make-up cotton pad and rinse with warm water.
One of two days later you should see the peeling /scabbing effect start to take place. This is normal. Let the area recover on its own. The longer the length of application of the gel the less treatments you will require to achieve the desired Age spot removal result. Conversely the less you keep the gel on the more applications you will require.
In most cases, the Age Spots are removed within 6 sessions.The longer you keep the Product on, during each application the more the peeling effects. As a consequence the longer you keep your formulation on your skin the less applications are needed to achieve satisfactory results. Some of our customers have been able to achieve the desired results in 3 to 4 sessions just by keeping the gel on for over 1 hour per application.
Allow a minimum of 2 weeks intervals between applications . In the unlikely event the skin is itchy or still red after the 2 weeks’ interval wait until the area has returned to normal before reapplying. DO NOT USE makeup ON THE AREA YOU HAVE USED THE PRODUCT UNTIL THE PEELING EFFECT IS OVER.
Also before applying the XanthRemover bear in mind that the scabbing/peeling process may not look pretty for 7 to 10 days soon after the application, therefore it is better to plan ahead and ensure you do not have important upcoming events. Do not apply any makeup during the peeling process.
Do not engage in dangerous or strenuous activities and do NOT WEAR ANY TYPE OF MAKE-UP during the peeling or scabbing process as this could jeopardize the peeling process, increase the chances of infections and therefore increase the risk of unnecessary complications including permanent scarring.
Apply total sun protection/sunscreen after the peeling has taken place up until three months you stopped applying the gel and you achieved the desired results. You must avoid any direct sun exposure for at least three months after the application of the gel. Failure to do so can lead to hyper- pigmentation as well as hypo-pigmentation.
Scars tissues may result due to the removal of your Brown Spots even by using cosmetic peels.
