Mandelic acid belongs to the group of alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA) and is extracted from bitter almonds. From among other acids, AHA exhibits the strongest antibacterial properties, and thanks to its molecular construction, exhibits extraordinary therapeutic properties. Mandelic acid can be used all around the year, not only because it doesn’t make your skin sensitive to the sunlight, but also because it doesn’t cause discoloration.
Low-concentration Mandelic acid (5 to 10%) is used in products meant for delicate, acne-susceptible, greasy complexion care, and thanks to its abrasive properties, it is also used in on products which delay the aging process outcomes. Mandelic acid is characteristic due to its significant antibacterial properties, which make it very useful when used in skin inflammation treatments. After the treatment, the horny layer thickness is decreased, and the keratinization process normalized – the skin becomes smooth, and gets a beautiful, shiny color to it. The Mandelic acid makes the epidermis more moisturized, in turn making it more elastic and supple. Recommended for regeneration of skin which bears photodemage and sun discolorations, AKA: depigmentation.
When starting the treatment, you must use cosmetics with a low Mandelic concentration rate, gradually using cosmetics with a greater and greater concentration rate. In order for the healthful Mandelic acid treatment to be effective, the treatment must be repeated several times. Although Mandelic acid does not increase skin sensitivity to the UV radiation, you should use sunscreens and creams that sustain the treatment results during the ongoing treatment. The essential step of the treatment, is to wash your face using a cleansing milk, foam, or soap, in order to wash off the serbum layer which makes a barrier against the AHA acids (AHA acids don’t dissolve in fat). You should also perform the so-called pre-peeling, which means using a cosmetic product that contains lower-concentration Mandelic acid, all in order to prepare your skin to a peeling session involving higher-concentration Mandelic acid. Then, a peeling with a higher Mandelic acid concentration rate, diligently selected to the particular skin type, should be applied to the skin. In the following stage, the peeling is washed off after a time that is right for every particular customer, while paying attention to the skin reactions. The final stage involves a moisturizing cream application.
