Mene and Moy Routines (Continued)

Skin group 2: delicate, abnormally pigmenting skin

These types of skin need to be treated gently to avoid further trauma (and so more pigmentation). The melanocyte stabilising agents kojic and phytic acid, morus alba, busserole and liquorice are all natural plant-based products that do not harm the delicate pigment-making melanocytes. All of these are used in varying combinations to achieve results in skin that pigments.

A few notes on PROFESSIONAL Peels:


TCA Chelated Lotion 20% / TCA Chelated Lotion 30%: This is a formulation containing trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and glycolic acid, made in such a way that it cannot penetrate too deeply into the skin, but deep enough so as to make these peels useable even for the removal of tattoos. TCA should not be used on people with dark skin, or those with melasma. Peels not to be used if pregnant or breastfeeding or by those already on a chemical peeling or laser skin rejuvenation programme, or using retinol products.Recent scarring, depilation (hair removal) and sun burn are also not suitable for chemical peel treatment, along with skin infections, such as herpes. Try to use home treatment products containing glycolic acid for about two weeks before the start of any professional peeling treatment. This will act as a preliminary skin exfoliation and will enable the practitioner to evaluate the skin's tolerance to glycolic acid. A course of 6 to 8 peels is suggested, spaced by 12 to 15 days. After that, with most peel products, repeat treatments will be required to maintain the appearance of the skin.

Other Peels

Another peel is by using Salicylic Acid, which is a beta hydroxy acid that is synthetically made. It is used in many of cosmetic applications, but one of its main uses, is to treat acne. Salicylic acid peels can be used to treat acne, fine wrinkles, minor skin discoloration and sun damage. A salicylic acid peel is an alternative to glycolic peels, which are more common. Salicylic acid peels can be done at home or by a skin professional.

Mandelic acid is recommended for sensitive skins and darker skins that do not tolerate other alpha-hydroxyacids with a smaller molecule, which may penetrate deeper inside the skin and irritate sensitive skins. Mandelic Acid produces less prickling sensations during application due to its higher molecular weight. It is suitable for sensitive skins and darker skins. The bacteriostatic action helps stabilise acne-prone skin. A variation of this is, of course, Lactic acid (or Fruit acid) peel

Phenol is the strongest of the peels and produces a deep peel. Of course, this may only be undertaken by medical professionals under strict conditions and that may include sedation. It is used mainly to treat patients with coarse facial wrinkles, areas of blotchy or damaged skin caused by sun exposure, or pre-cancerous growths. Since phenol sometimes lightens the treated areas, skin pigmentation may be a determining factor as to whether or not this is an appropriate treatment. Phenol is primarily used on the face; scarring may result if it's applied to the neck or other body areas. With a phenol peel, the new skin frequently loses its ability to make pigment (ie tan). This means that not only will the skin be lighter in color, but you'll always have to protect it from the sun. Phenol may pose a special risk for those with a history of heart disease.

NOTE: "All chemical peels carry some uncertainty and risk. Chemical peel is normally a safe procedure when it is performed by a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon. However, some unpredictability and risks such as infection and scarring, while infrequent, are possible" A very important point as made by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Do not go for any sort of major peeling unless you have taken proper, professional advice - and have your peel undertaken only by a professionally qualified practitioner!
