Question 1: What is Resorcinol (an ingredient featured in ReJuvePeel)?
Answer: Resorcinol is a dermatologically impactful ingredient. Because it is a very small molecule it can penetrate deeply into skin, including sebaceous glands, it is absorbed rapidly and it potentiates penetration of other ingredients. Therefore it is often used in combination with other ingredients. It is used topically to help treat acne breakouts by breaking down dead, scaly skin, helping dissolve existing comedones and helping to keep new ones from forming. It is used externally as an antiseptic and disinfectant to treat eczema, psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa (painful cysts & abscesses), corns, calluses and other chronic skin conditions. Resorcinol is also present in many commonly used products including over-the-counter topical acne treatments, anti-dandruff shampoos, medicated soaps and vaginal yeast infection medications.
Question 2: Do any of CosMedical's peels help minimize the appearance of broken blood vessels or should the client use our Vitamin K Creme?
Answer: No there is not a peel that can help minimize the appearance of broken blood vessels. In fact, if someone has a lot of broken vessels, you should steer away from doing a medium depth peel, like ReJuvePeel in those areas as it could aggravate the condition. We do highly recommend using our Vitamin K Creme that contains Phytonadione which helps improve the appearance of enlarged vessels as well as decreases circulation to bruised tissue and helps reduce vascular permeability, edema and swelling.
Question 3: Can our peels be used on clients with Melasma? I know that this is the 'Mask of Pregnancy,' but can a person still have this condition after pregnancy and if so can this be treated with peels? Also, what products can we recommend for Melasma?
Answer: Our peels can be very effective for Melasma. We suggest that you start with the Pro-G 70 since you don't want to inflame the skin and then possibly cause a problem with the skin getting darker in inflamed areas after a peel. This is why we also use a more gentle peel first for Melasma. We have had very good results with glycolic peels and products for Melasma.
For Melasma, we recommend using the following hyperpigmentation regimen:
Every morning use:
Salicylic Face & Body Wash, unless pregnant or breastfeeding, then use Chamomile Facial Wash
Micro Buff (once every day)
Same at night, but use Retinol Drops instead of Vita Soothe and include either AHA Clarifier or Glycolic Gel after cleanser.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, consult your Doctor prior to beginning this regiment. Consult your Doctor if you plan to include AHA Fade Lotion in your regiment during pregnancy, breastfeeding or you use oral contraceptives.
Sunburn Alert: Products containing an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) such as Glycolic Acid may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using these products and for a week afterwards.*Results May Vary For Each User
Question 4: Why can't peels be used on other parts of the body such as arms, etc?
Answer: The face has a different anatomy than the rest of the body. The same way that a laser should never be used on the neck, a deeper peel should not be applied there either because we don't have the anatomic units in these areas that can promote healing of deeper wounds that are caused by more aggressive peels. The CosMed Pro-G 70 and CosMed Pro-L 20 are both generally safe to use on the neck and arms, but do not use the CosMed Pro-G Peel 35 or CosMed ReJuvePeel on these areas.
