Have any of you ever don a chemical peel or enzyme treatment on necks or decollete?
If so, what products did you use and were you and the client happy with the results?
I'm really wanting something to target women's "turkey" necks, just not sure what is best to use.
Thank you in advance,
Hi Lisa , so I booked my client in for a series of 10 weeks for the passion fruit facial just getting right down to business with this in a 30 min tx. she does have relaxed elasticity and some deeper wrinkles starting to develop. I am excited to see the results from this series as I have not done this with the passion fruit enzyme for tightening and toning I am also including the neck with this tx. I start with the pom/glycolic cleanse as she does Not get very red from this enzyme as I had expected also lightly demafile over the enzyme and do use steam but keep it farther away from her face just enough :) I will keep you informed as we move along ! Oh could I also layer or mix in the 2% retinol as well ?
Hi Cheryl - I hope you are taking pictures. Yes! you could layer or mix the 2% retinol in as well. Do you have this client on homecare as well? My thoughts turn to Glycolic Cleanser used 5 times a week (put the dermis into trauma mode to produce more collagen), Cucumber Toner (rehydrate), Ageless Hydrating Serum (rehydrate), and Vitamin C (Vit C is a great antioxidant to feed and nourish the fibroblast). I realize you need a daily cleanser, moisturizer and spf as well, but wanted to see if she was treating at home as well. :)
Oh yes she is (lol) she does have dry skin type so pom clns. toner hydrating serum 2% retinol 3x weekly and hydrating moisturizer which I am going to give her samples of the peptide moisturizer to try. I will add the glycolic cleanser to her home care this week and explain in detail a bit more :) thanks and she just purchased her sunscreen Wednesday! Good idea I will ask her if I can take a picture Wednesday after her facial when her skin looks amazing ! Thanks for all your expertise advise <3
Hi Cheryl! I am getting ready to order the Passion Fruit Enzyme also to provide the same type of treatment. Excited to see your client's results!
I will defiantly keep you posted. We have already used the passion fruit twice. I have seen her 3 times now so I have a pretty good feel for how her skin reacts to treatments so moving forward with the series and go from there. Good luck and please keep us informed of how everything is going with your series as well xo
There is a medical grade peel that is 17% TCA; 17% Salicylic, followed by 1% Retinol pads. They will not sell to aestheticians. However, I am testing a desquamative treatment that, with proper maintenance, (nothing works without home care) can yield beneficial results. Neck and decollete tend to have double problems: hypo and hyper-pigmentation... very challenging but so rewarding to study and effect results!
Hi Susan - yes, that Chocolate Mask does get people red/pink. It has a glycerine base. Glycerine is a great driver of active ingredients and some people respond to this one! I hope its okay with you and your clients.
Awww, this is tough, Denise. I've been a dental hygienist for over 34 years... I know that home care is 80% of the result... I am passionate about results, so I have researched everything under the sun. SkinScriptsRx fits my needs. Not overly aggressive (like toothbrushes that act like chainsaws) and smartly applied, with PATIENCE, the results are LONG TERM...
Sometimes, we must fire our clients. Understand that they will find someone who can serve their desires rather than their needs.
Oh yes, when they discover their desires are impassible, they'll return to the sensible and gentle treatments you explained to them in the first place... Smile... I've been doing this for over 3 decades!
