How to Remove Scars Fast Using Chemical Peel | Before & After

November 10, 2021

Script:

How to remove scars on legs fast with chemical peels, hi everyone in today’s video we’ll be covering the different strengths of peels and  the best peels for your skin concern or skin type  we’ll be looking at how I administer a chemical peel on my face and on my body what to do  before and after a peal and products that will  make your results ten times better number one, types, there are three main types of peels, light or superficial peels medium depth peels and deep peels for light peels they include glycolic acid 10 to 50 percent, lactic acid 10 to 30 percent,  mandelic acid 40 percent and salicylic acid 30 percent, these type of peels can be done at home but you need to have several sessions done before you see significant improvement, it removes the top layer but doesn’t penetrate as deep, next medium depth, these include glycolic acid 70 percent salicylic acid over 30 percent and TCA peal 30 to 50 percent, this is kind of a sweet spot for me  because it’s not a deep peel to where I  would burn myself but at the same time i can administer and see significant improvement because it penetrates much deeper than the epidermic, it goes to the dermis, at least the top layer of the dermis and it helps with pigmentation issues number three deep peels, these ones are hardcore these need  usually a physician not even a professional at the spot, they address anti-aging issues, pigmentation issues but like I mentioned they’re hardcore, they go deep deep into the dermis so be careful well you can’t even do it on your own, next the best chemical peels for your skin concern and or  your skin type so if you’re someone who has darker skin if you have dry skin if you have sensitive  skin you will benefit from using lactic acid and mandelic acid peels these peels are very gentle if  you have acne prone skin or oily skin salicylic acid or jessner peel are two peels that you will find very beneficial for glycolic acid that works  for all skin types but if you have super sensitive  skin you may want to avoid glycolic acid although it’s very effective and then if you have high  pigmentation peels such as TCA, VI peel, cosmelan are great peels.

 

Now onto demonstration i’m going  to be doing my face and my body, the products I’ll be using are gentle cleanser latex free  gloves alcohol wipes petroleum jelly to protect  chemical peels lactic acid glycolic acid TCA, I’m going to be using TCA for my legs and glycolic acid for  my elbows and lactic acid for my face, that’s my  bowl and my fan brush my moisturizer, my sunscreen, my cotton rounds and my body lotion, let’s go alright first I’m gonna be cleansing my face, all right so we can get a fresh palette, wipe it off I’m gonna be using alcohol wipes to remove any um residue and all and then I’m gonna be protecting with the petroleum jelly my eyes, my nose, my mouth now I’m gonna be taking the peel just using my fan brush to gently apply it all  over my face I’m using 25 percent lactic acid because I don’t want to burn myself, I generally don’t like  administering the peel on my face, when I do it has to be a light  peel, all right that’s it i’m  gonna time myself for this peel I waited about two minutes I believe and then I neutralize it with water, you can neutralize with baking soda as well and then I apply the moisturizer, a gel  moisturizer so it can soothe my skin and after my moisturizer, I applied a sunscreen next, I’m going to be demonstrating how I apply  it on my legs, I’m doing the same thing cleansing my skin all right I’m going to be using a TCA peel  30% I wouldn’t try this on my face at home, I’m just so scared I don’t want to burn my skin and I use tretinoin anyway so I try to stay away from um strong peels on my face all  right I’m applying it on my leg generally, TCA peel can be applied onto so you  can use three for about four layers actually in this video I only did two layers and I still got some peeling and that’s it plan it all over this is the first layer, I’m gonna come back for a second later, my problem area is my feet really just really got dark so I’m trying to treat that, if you look at my legs you can see some spots that  are still fading but my legs have come a long way for sure all right here I’m just neutralizing the peel although TCA peels self-neutralize so you don’t even need to neutralize them and then I’m applying a soothing body lotion on my legs yeah and that is it for the legs.

 

Next, what you do before and after a peel. Before the peel, if you go see a specialist or physician they’re gonna have you stop exfoliating one week before your chemical peels, first they’re gonna take your medical history if everything’s fine and they’ll have you stop exfoliating one week before at least one week or about a week before your chemical peel they would also have you stop things like retinoids pigment lighteners and acne medication because these things impact how your skin tolerates the peel right and last products to use to make your results 10  times better if you go see a dermatologist, for example, to get a chemical peel they would put you on retinoids and/or pigment lighteners for four to six weeks before your chemical peel. These medications will help speed up your results right and also as a safety measure things like retinoids help the healing process so when you get a chemical peel it’s kind of like lifting I don’t  know like a sheet almost so when your skin peels, then you see fresh new skin. Retinoids and pigment lighteners have been working behind the scenes to ensure that there’s no reproduction of melanin and the skin heals quickly right my friends thank you so much for watching I have one question for you what is your most concerning skin issue these days I want  to hear them leave them in the comments section thank you so much for watching I appreciate you all I hope you have a great great week ahead.

5 Things to Know Hyperpigmentation

June 9, 2021

Whether you’re fair-skinned, you have black skin, skin of color…Know these things and know peace (Hyperpigmentation).

Things of Hyperpigmentation:

1. Number one, not all ingredients are created equal. And some over-the-counter products are a joke tbh.

Here’s the hierarchy: Hydroquinone (especially ones over 4%)-is the gold standard but it has a lot of controversy surrounding it. That said, when you visit a dermatologist and you have some serious hyperpigmentation, especially around your body, this is what they’re gonna give you. All things being equal, this is the prescription they are going to write you. They are not gonna bring up niacinamide or vitamin c even kojic acid.

The next after that is azelaic acid 20% or cysteamine. Cysteamine is the new chick on the block but she’s good. The next is kojic acid or arbutin then tranexamic acid, then Ascorbic acid, then niacinamide.

2. The second thing to know is that combination is king. Monotherapy- that is using one product- will have you waiting for years. If you want to see results within a reasonable timeframe, combination therapy is the way to go.

Often, a dermatologist will combine a tyrosinase inhibitor or a couple of tyrosinase inhibitors with exfoliants or retinoids. Here are common combinations 1. Azelaic acid and tretinoin 2. Hydroquinone and tretinoin 3. Azelaic acid, hydroquinone, and tretinoin 4. Kojic acid and glycolic acid 5. Vitamin c and niacinamide, and aha 6. Vitamin c niacinamide and kojic acid.

Sometimes when you have stubborn spots, a dermatologist will introduce chemical peels or lasers For example, they will treat you with topical treatments for a while, ask you to take a break from them, and then start treating you with chemical peels.

3. Respect Sunscreen and Sun Protection: If you are on Instagram you’ve probably been harassed by a skincare influencer to wear your sunscreen but this is apt as sun exposure will take you 10 steps back. Especially when it comes to treating hyperpigmentation. I personally don’t rely on sunscreen, I stay away from the sun between 11 am and 4 pm. And I cover up my body.

4. Results: One of the best things you can learn about dark spots is that they will not disappear overnight, but if you persist, one day you’ll look for them and you won’t be able to find them. If this isn’t your mindset, then it’s likely that you’ll give up. Cause after one week, you’ll look in the mirror, see it’s still there then you’ll say it’s not working. When in reality you’re supposed to give it 1-3 months (for your face) and 3-6 months(for your body).

5. Coverage: While you’re treating your hyperpigmentation, life has to go on. If you are self-conscious about your dark spots and want to cover them up, here are two brands to check out: Dermaablend and Sally Hansen. Dermablend has both face and body makeup that have great coverage and Sally Hansen has a product called airbrush legs, it is lightweight but it still gets the job done. And that’s it from me, over to you.

What have you learned about treating dark spots or hyperpigmentation in general?

Kojic Acid Soap | Skin Lightening Treatment

May 17, 2021

Hi everyone, my name is Rita, and today we will be talking about kojic acid-specifically kojic acid soap. Before we get into that, let’s look at what kojic acid is and what it does.

Kojic acid works by inhibiting the formation of tyrosine. Tyrosine is an amino acid needed to produce melanin. Because it prevents the production of melanin, kojic acid causes the skin to lighten. As a result, it is often used to treat hyperpigmentation, sun damage, age spots, and scars.

Does kojic acid come in other forms, or is it just the soap form? No, Kojic acid comes in different forms, including lotions, creams, serums, peels, and soaps.

▶ https://bit.ly/3hvYTHS Guys, please leave authentic links in the comment section below so I can add them here. Thank you!

Today, we’ll be discussing the kojic acid soap; I genuinely appreciate how fast-acting, as well as how accessible it is. A brand that I’ve used for a while now is Kojie San, and we’ll be using it for our demo in today’s video.
In this segment, we’ll be looking at using kojic acid soap, how often to use it, where to use the soap, its side effects, things to know about it, and when to expect results.

1. How to use kojic acid soap? Wet the soap and work it into a lather, then apply it to the affected area. Leave it on for about 30 seconds, and wash off. Some have said that this soap can be left on for as long as 4 minutes, but remember that this soap has a very high irritation potential, so don’t leave it on for long.

2. How often should you use the soap? First, if you have sensitive skin, you may want to do a patch test to see how your skin reacts. Then you can start using it every other day. Some people can use it every day with no issues; other people’s skin can even tolerate it twice a day. If you use retinoids, your skin may have trouble handling them every day.

3. Where to use the soap? It can generally be used anywhere you have hyperpigmentation: Face, Body, Elbows, Knees, thighs..etc..

4. Side effects? Redness, irritation, itchiness, or pain and discomfort. When you experience these, you should stop use. I know that I’ve overused it, and I take a break.

5. Things you need to know? *Kojic acid soap, especially this one by Kojie San, tends to dissolve quickly in water, so cut it into pieces; otherwise, it’s going to last you about two days.*Kojic acid soap can be very drying for some, so moisture up. Unlike the many actives that pregnant women are prohibited from using, kojic acid is safe for expecting and nursing mothers.

6. When to expect results? All things being equal, and if you’ve been using the soap consistently, you’ll likely start to see results within two-four weeks. For faster results, combine with glycolic acid.

Tretinoin Before and After

May 14, 2021

Does tretinoin work permanently? Want to see results of tretinoin before and after use? You’ve arrived at the right video.

Hello guys, my name is Rita, welcome to the channel. In this video, I will discuss how I transformed my skin and life during the pandemic by using tretinoin, hydroquinone, and supplements. I have also included some before and after pictures. Your skin reflects your health. Skincare might be quite trendy these days, regardless, giving your skin some love has both cosmetic and medical benefits.

Tretinoin is a prescription-strength topical cream or gel. It’s used mainly to treat acne, sun-damaged skin, dark spots or rough skin, and fine wrinkles on the face caused by the damaging rays of the sun. It works by affecting the way in which skin cells develop. Tretinoin is able to speed up the life cycle of skin cells. It makes them divide and die faster, so newer, healthier cells can take their place .

Talk to your doctor or dermatologist about the specifics of your skin condition. If your doctor or dermatologist thinks that tretinoin is right for you, make sure you know how it should be used. It starts to work within 2 to 3 weeks, but it can take 6 weeks or more to experience its full benefits. In the first few weeks of treatment, it’s normal to have mild to moderate redness, dryness, peeling, and itchiness. If you don’t see improvement within 12 weeks, or if you have significant improvement and wonder if you should start using it less frequently, consult your doctor.
