Mandelic Arginine Peel
The natural acidity of this formula makes it a perfect addition to most treatments, preventing the formation of damaging radicals that follow cell disruption caused by microdermabrasion or chemical peels. Mandelic Arginine Peel is also very supportive in treating pigmentation disorders and adding to treatments of photo-damaged skin.
L-Arginine, one of the 20 main amino acids, accelerates wound healing, promotes collagen synthesis and increases skin elasticity. Mandelic Acid (5%) is found in almonds and is strong enough for mild exfoliation. It has long been used as an antiseptic because of its antibacterial activity. Studies suggest that it could be beneficial in the treatment of skin problems such as photo-aging, irregular pigmentation, and acne. Phytic Acid is a great natural antioxidant extracted from cereals, such as wheat and rice.
Recommended UseMandelic/Arginine Peel, with a pH of 3.4, is available as a home care corrective with many uses in the treatment room. It is safe for most skins since it does not require timing or neutralization. Use following microdermabrasion, after an enzyme during a facial, prior to Vitamin A+ Peptide Peel application, after epidermal leveling, or at the end of some acid treatments such as Salicylic Peeling Cream. COMPLETION-Remember to always apply SPF protection to skin following application of Mandelic/Arginine Peel.
