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 the area you want to treat for exfoliation .
- Keep the gel on for as long as you deem necessary to achieve the desired skin peel effects . 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 high grade glycolic acid gel the less treatments you will require to achieve the desired exfoliation results. Conversely the less you keep the gel on the more applications you will require.
In most cases, you find noticeable general imporvements to your skin after the first full application.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 the less applications are needed to achieve satisfactory results. Some of our customers have been able to achieve the desired results in 5 to 6 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 scabbing/peeling process is still on going after the 2 weeks’ interval wait until the area has returned to normal to reapply. 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 misuse in high grade cosmetic peels.
What to do in case the peeling effects are not strong enough in my case?
The XanthRemover has high concentration of Glycolic Acid and hence it is very strong per se. However in some circumstances the user would like to get very strong burning or peeling effects especially when using the product for acne scar attenuation.
1) The first course of action is increase the length of application. The longer the Product is kept on the skin, the deeper the burning or peeling effects.
2) If just keeping the Xanthremover gel on for longer does not cut it, then you can increase the effects of the XanthRemover by de-greasing the skin before applying the XanthRemover. The natural way of doing it is applying vinegar on the skin before the use of the XanthRemover. First you have to wash the skin thoroughly, then you dry it, and last using a cotton pad dipped into vinegar rub the skin a number of times with the cotton pad and vinegar. Dry the skin and apply the XanthRemover immediately after. This will enhance the effects of the XanthRemover.
3) If the use of vinegar is not enough for you the next step is Deep de-greasing using acetone. Wash the part of the skin you want to apply the XanthRemover on and once you dry it apply acetone rubbing it using a cotton cloth. Rub the area of the skin a number of times and then apply the XanthRemover once the skin is dry from the Acetone. Please be careful because the effects the XanthRemover will be very different from before. The burns and peeling effects will be much deepe
