Professional Use: Client intake and preparation: Always conduct an intake evaluation prior to performing any peels. Intensive peels should not be performed if client indicates prior negative reactions when doing peels either at home or during professional treatments. Perform a patch test prior to application of solution to face, neck and chest. Before applying peel, advise the client that a strong tingling or mild stinging sensation may occur during treatment. Protect eyes before beginning treatment. Cleanse skin thoroughly and apply Pro Prep Peel Solution with a cotton round to remove any surface oils. Pour 1/2 teaspoon of 30% lactic serum into glass bowl. Use two long handled cotton swabs to apply; roll swabs against side of dish to prevent dripping. Start timing at beginning of application; depending on skin type, may leave on from 2-3 minutes. Apply in a counter-clockwise manner. Start with forehead; continue applying around perimeter of face, then apply around mouth and on nose. Finish with upper cheek areas. Avoid immediate eye area or obvious active acne lesions. You may apply on neck if client is using the home care product on neck also. In that case, finish with neck last. If excessive stinging or irritation occurs, remove immediately with Neutralizing Solution. When time is up, apply Neutralizing Solution with a cotton pad, starting with forehead and continuing with the same pattern as the application. Rinse with cool water on sponges to remove any traces of Exfoliant. Follow with appropriate mask and protective treatment for skin type. Some redness following treatment is normal, however if client experiences excessive irritation apply Rx Calming Serum.
