The Easy Phytic Peel from Skin Tech contains glycolic acid, lactic acid, phenyl glycolic (mandelic) acid (without the toxic effects of phenol) and phytic acid. It is a self-neutralising peel which should not be washed off till the following morning. This avoids some of the problems associated with standard glycolic peels: premature neutralisation reduces effectiveness, delayed neutralisation increases risks of side effects.
The Easy Phytic Peel is a superficial peel which only takes the most superficial layer of skin away. This peel promotes a slow release of the medication for continuous penetration of the skin. This is ideal for people who want the benefits of peeling without any signs of skin flaking. The peel works as an exfoliation technique, promoting stimulation of healthy skin without the obvious signs of exfoliation.
The peel is able to deeply exfoliate by eliminating the surface layer of skin that has been damaged by sun, cigarette smoking or other environmental toxins.
The Easy Phytic Peel is particularly good for the control of acne. The peel is especially popular for teenage acne, where additional flaking would worsen social isolation. As the peel only takes the top layer of skin away it reduces skin congestion and effectively helps the acne to improve.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes, where layers of Easy Phytic Solution are applied in quick succession until the stinging sensation is maximal. The appropriate Skin Tech cream is then applied and the face occluded to maximise penetration. This technique allows a huge reservoir of the cream to be absorbed into the skin. Subsequent daily application maintains the treatment results.
During the procedure the patient will experience a stinging sensation. There may be a slight redness after the treatment that will subside after around 12 hours. The day after the procedure the skin will start to feel smooth, tight and fresh.
This procedure aims to leave the skin looking and feeling more youthful and fresher than it was prior to the procedure. Some of the effects that are experienced are
- Smoother surface around the treated areas
- Looks younger
- Feels smoother and softer
- Healthier colour in the skin
- Reduction of surface lines and wrinkles
- The skin looks and feels rejuvenated.
The Easy Phytic Peel can be repeated on a weekly basis for rapid control of active acne.
