Tokyo Love Shop Retinoic Acid Cream 1% is the perfect priming cream for your peeling needs. Good Surgeons and Dermatologists always recommend Retinoic Acid to be applied atleast 3 days to a week before proceeding to chemical and facial peels. This is to remove soften and remove superficial keratinous skin layers that will hinder peel absorption.
So why do we really need to prime the skin? The answer is very simple. The upper skin layer is not even. There are areas that has thicker keratinous layer such as the forehead and the chin. There are areas where the skin is thinner like the areas around the mouth, eyes and the sides of the nose. If you apply a chemical peel, let’s say 30% TCA, The thinner area will absorb more of the peel while the thicker area will absorb less leading to uneven skin peeling. This is the reason why patients who did not undergo priming experience uneven peeling depths and poor results.
Tokyo Love Shop Retinoic Acid Cream 1% when applied once a day for 3 consecutive days ensures that the keratin in the upper skin layers are softened and primed for a perfectly even peel distribution and absorption. Though not absolutely necessary, you will experience the best peeling experience if your skin is primed well. Tokyo Love Shop Retinoic Acid Cream 1% is also used as a once a day cream for treatment of moderate to severe acne as well as expulsion of blackheads and whiteheads.
