|Dr Ph.Deprez - Empuriabrava - EspaĂ±a
Since the years 80"s, AHA have been used alone or in combination with other acids. The goal was to obtains aesthetically acceptable results without the hazardous side effects, definitive or transitory, of other deeper peelings. The vegetal origin of the used molecules - therefore called fruits acids - was in great part responsible of the spectacular success of these treatments. How to resist to such an ecologic name as "fruit acids " ?
All AHA"s possess at least one -COOH ( carboxy) radical combined with a -OH radical ( hydroxyle ) situated on the alpha carbon, say the carbon which is direct neighbour to the carboxy radical. The most known AHA"s are glycolic acid (with 2 carbons ) , lactic acid ( 3C) Malic acid ( 4 C of which 2 carboxy radicals ) , Tartaric acid ( 4 C, 2 COOH and 2 OH) , citric acid ( 6C, 3 COOH) etcâ€¦ Another special AHA is Mandelic acid . This acid combines COOH, OH and a radical phenyl. Another name of Mandelic acid is phenyl-glycolic acid because it consists on a glycolic acid on which a phenyl radical takes the place of a -H.
The most used and known of all them is actually the glycolic acid which is a little molecule, with a low molecular weight. This molecule easily transits trough the corneal layer where she acts as a power saw for corneodesmosomes. From this effect came the first indications of the application of glycolic acid: ichtyosis and other illnesses characterized by hyperkeratinisation problems. In fact, the effect of an AHA, applied on a clean and degreased skin, is to modify the protein"s structure that form the corneodesmosomes. The most superficial layers of dead corneal cells unhook from epidermis and the skin appears immediately softer and smoother to the fingers because these do not touch any more the very dry and dead cells of the "stratum corneum disjunctum". Some scientific studies claim the direct moisturizing power of application of AHA over the skin.
AHA are not melanotoxic and therefore can be applied on dark phototypes under the condition to use a sunscreen. A good sunscreen ( anti UVB and UVA, FPS 60) should be used every time an AHA peeling is made during sunny seasons or in sunny countries.
AHA are non toxic substances , they do not coagulate proteins and have an excellent reputation of safety . They are easy to apply and produce acceptable results in numerous indications.
AHA are easy to apply but not easy to neutralize. Unlike trichloroacetic acid or carbolic acid ( phenol), AHA do not auto-neutralize by combination with proteins. TCA for example, combines with the dermal and epidermal proteins producing a "frosting" due to a modification of the ultrastructure of the proteins. The frosting means that TCA has made his effect and is neutralized. AHA should be neutralized when they reach the right depth in the skin, say after the occurrence of an erythema and before any frosting. Without external neutralization ( using a basic solution ) AHA would continue its action and overpass the desired effect. If we neutralize too quick, AHA give very poor results but if we neutralize too late, AHA produce more side effects than positive results.
The difficulty comes from the subjectivity of the right moment for the neutralization: the physician has to stop the effect of the acid when he sees an erythema and before any frosting. Very often, during an AHA peeling, the physician thinks like this: " I will let act the acid a little bit longer before to neutralize in order to get a better result". Sometimes he thinks "I should have neutralized quicker because the frosting areas that are appearing quickly on the skin of my patient show me that I will have to face post peel problems". The second thought being contemporaneous with large periods of troubles of sleep induction or premature wake ups due to anxiety secondary to the probability of aesthetic complications due to the too late neutralization of the AHA.
This problem is classic and numerous solutions have been tried in order to limit this danger, in order to lower the level of risk linked to a late neutralization of AHA peels .
So, we can find some "partially neutralized" or bufferized AHA with a pH of between 3.5 and 5. These solutions only have to be rinsed , always before any frosting, and do not need a real neutralization.
Let"s come back to some notions of chemistry and pharmacology . A neutralization occurs when a base is mixed with an acid: the acid is neutralized and do not produces effect any more. On the contrary, when an acid is just rinsed with water, no neutralization occurs. What happens is a dilution of the acid. Very weak acids can be diluted in order to become harmless, they do not need a real neutralization. These weak acids have a high pH of between 3.5 and 5.
What means pH ? pH represents the capacity of an acid to give H+ . It depends on the type of acid and on the concentration. ph=0 is the most acid, ph=7 is neutral, ph=14 is the most basic. A "peeling" AHA solution is normally very acid and generally shows a pH of between 0 and 1. These solutions are considered as aggressive, quite dangerous, and have to be quickly neutralized with a base in order to avoid post peel skin problems.
Higher pH peeling acids solutions ( pH 3.5 - 5 ) are less aggressive and can be rinsed, because they contain a lower amount of free acid - the only efficient form - . Being less able to give protons (H+) they are less efficient. The extreme case would be represented by a peeling solution with pH =7. extremely safeâ€¦. But extremely inefficient.
Some MD"s claim that pKa - proton dissociation - is more relevant than pH ! So, another point is to be lighten up : AHA solutions have an acidic pH in the absence of any inorganic alkali or organic base. The pKa ( at 25 Â°C) of an acid solution is the pH of this solution at which there is an equal number of moles of free-active acid and non active salt. For instance, the pKa of a glycolic acid solution is 3.83, it means that when the pH of this solution is 1, there is a lot of active free acid form in the solution and a low quantity of inactive salt form. This means that when the pH is lower than the pKa, this solution is active and aggressive. If we partially neutralize the same solution (say, with sodium hydroxide) in order to reach pH higher than 3.83 , there will exist a higher quantity of inactive salt form ( sodium glycolate ) of the acid and a lower quantity of free acid form ( glycolic acid ) . This is what happens in the above discussed AHA peeling with "High" pH.
In short, an AHA peel solution with a pH equal to or higher than 3.83 will be less dangerous, less aggressiveâ€¦ but less efficient.
The contact time between the skin and the acid is naturally very important for the clinical efficacy of an AHA peel. I mean that one will have a better aesthetic result after a 5 minutes contact peel than after a 1 minute duration peel. The aim of the neutralization is to stop the actuation of the acid . In other words, if we let act the acid during 1 minute before neutralization, we"ll have just 1 minute efficiency and if we let it act a longer time, the efficiency will be better. This is why many physicians try to let act the AHA peel as long time as possible. Doing so , the risk of "over peeling" increases and the physician has to face post peel problems. The difficult point with AHA peel is to find for every peeling the right balance between the desire of efficacy and the risk of side effects.
For these reasons, our goal was to find an AHA peel with a low pH, in order to be efficient , and without neutralization, in order to forget the over peeling danger . "Easy Phytic peel" ( EPP ) is the first AHA peel of this class of peelings: low pH but without neutralization. This has some direct consequences:
1. No neutralization means that we can forget the problems linked with a too late ( side effects) or too early ( lack of efficiency ) neutralization. No last minute decision has to be token: we just apply the product on the face and let it act until the next morning.
2. It means too that no basic neutralizer will stop the action of the acids. The time of contact between the acid and the skin will be very long and, finally, all the molecules of the peeling solution will act until the natural progressive neutralization by the skin itself.
3. The EPP"s pH is low, between 0 and 1, this means that the solution offers a lot of free active acid. This kind of solution is usually considered as a very aggressive one but EPP has to be considered as a "time release" non aggressive peeling that allows a progressive and sequential actuation of its acids. Clinically, the patient does not feel the typical burning sensation of a pure 70% glycolic acid, but will only experience a special tingling sensation that lasts during 30 to 45 minutes.
This peeling is indicated for patients who do not want visible peel or for physicians who want to lower the every day"s risk of peelings treatments.
The EPP solution is adjuvated and saponified. It is made of a mixture of glycolic acid, lactic acid, mandelic acid ( also called phenyl glycolic acid ) and phytic acid. The time release solution allows a progressive actuation of the acids. The 3 AHA of the EPP solution show different velocities of penetration through the skin. The most little one , glycolic acid, penetrates first, followed by the lactic followed by the mandelic. These acids begin their action at the level of the upper layers of the epidermis. Because there is no neutralisation, they continue their action, going down inside of the epidermis and reaching the dermis, slowly and without never over passing the capacity of natural neutralization by the skin itself, so, the acids of EPP lose progressively their aggressiveness into the skin.
It is known (J.AM Acad. Dermatol, 1996 Feb., 34 (2 pt 1): 187-195) that AHA make a thicker epidermis, produce more polymuccosaccharids and a better quality elastin. The density of papillary dermis collagen is better and patients under EPP describe an tightening sensation after peeling and a visible difference of the aspect of the skin.
The last acid of the solution, Phytic acid, is not an AHA, this is a big molecule of inositol hexaphosphoric acid considered as an excellent antioxidant and an antityrosinase. More it binds out Iron.
In our point of view, phytic acid is unable to produce any peeling effect, so why can we find Phytic acid in this solution ? Actually, every peeling produces an inflammation; This inflammation produces Free Radicals of Oxygen ( FRO) and vasodilatation. Vasodilatation brings more oxygen in situ allowing the formation of more FRO. FRO binds immediately with the closest structure, damaging it. So a peeling always promotes the skin regeneration but induces a lot of FRO that can damage the structures that are supposed to regenerate the skin during the post peel period. The actual scientific understanding of ageing processes generally blame FRO as one of the major responsible of cells degeneration. It is important to fight these FRO during the post peel period.
Phytic acid penetrates the skin after the 3 AHA of the EPP solution and is present inside the skin when FRO are produced in parallel to the inflammation. Scavenging FRO cuts the vicious circle of inflammation-vasodilatation- FRO and scavenges the FRO produced post peel.
|The indications of this peel are globally the same as indications of a 70% no bufferized glycolic acid.
The difference is the lower risk of side effects and a much longer contact time of EPP solution when compared to pure Glycolic acid.
This peeling can perfectly be done during the lunch time.
A very good indication is acne.
Deep wrinkles are not an indication for this peeling, fine wrinkles can enhance. EPP can produce a better shape in case of slightly sagging skin. In this indication, EPP can be repeated 2 times a week.
Frequency: Side effects: precautions
Frequency of peeling: Generally, EPP is applied once a week but can be repeated 2 times a week, when a more stimulative effect is wanted or in case of acne. A more frequent application could produce a deeper penetration of the acids and an over peeling.
The peeling should be repeated until reaching the desired result. As maintenance, the peel can be repeated every 2 weeks or every month.
Side effects: 1 - 2 % of the patients with sensitive and thin skin develop a specific reaction to this peeling. The appearance is that of little pinky and slightly pruritic nodules. This inflammatory reaction generally quickly disappears without any treatment in a place of 2 or 3 days. If this is not the case, then the patient should be suspected of allergy and treated as due.
In several cases, this reaction has been found to be linked with other cosmetic products used in parallel with the EPP.
In the majority of the cases, this reaction proceeds from the very deep penetration of AHA into the dermis. Do not forget that EPP is not neutralized and that free AH acid penetrate slowly but deeply into the skin. The "highest" papillae of the dermis will receive more free acid and this can locally produce dots of inflammation that will stimulate the fibroblastic reaction.
Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes. In case of contact with eyes, wash immediately with artificial tears or NaCl physiologic solution. See prepeel preparation too.
As a precaution, do not use on pregnant or breastfeeding woman, in case of active herpes or unknown origin lesions. The physician has to decide if the application of a peeling is convenient in every case.
|Pre peel: No preparation is desirable because it would increase too much the penetration of the acids. EPP solution has been conceived to be used without any pre peel regimen and its penetration is uniform. Wait 15 days if a pre peel regimen is actually applied or if the patient is actually treated with another peel.
Pre peel cleaning: Use the cleaning foam only ; do not use any aggressive product to clean the skin. No alcohol, no acetona. Just softly wash the skin twice with the Skin Tech"s foam and rinse with hot water.
Dry the skin after washing.
Applicator: Little cotton balls seem to be the best applicator for this peeling.
Preparation of the solution: The solution is ready for use. Syringe out 2.5 ml of EPP solution
Moisten (do not soak) the chosen applicator and apply the solution evenly over the face. Two coats, applied one after the other and without rubbing, are sufficient. No frosting at all should occur. In the event of accidental frosting, neutralize immediately (sodium bicarbonate solution). Avoid all contact with the eyes. Should the solution come into contact with the eyes, wash them immediately with plenty of physiological saline.
DO NOT NEUTRALIZE.
Immediate post-peel : Following the peeling, apply the most appropriate skincare cream for the patient and let act this cream under a plastic sheet occlusion, during 15 - 30 minutes. ( see picture left )
Skin Tech"s creams have been created for very sensitive skins like post peel or post laser skins. Therefore they can be used immediately after Skin Tech"s peelings ( Easy TCA, Easy Phytic, Unideep, Only Touch, lip formula ) .
3 main aesthetic reasons generally bring the patient to our office: Aging, acne or pigmentations. The right use of 4 creams will allow us to help the patients.
If acne is a problem, we"ll use the Skin Tech"s Purifying cream; If pigmentation is a problem, we"ll apply the "bleaching and blending" cream after the peel , under occlusion. If the race against ageing has brought the patient to our office, we"ll use the Renutric ACE lipoic complex for less thay 40-45 yo patients or the "Phyto DHEA" cream for more than 40 yo partients.
The occlusion allows a better and deeper penetration of the active components of the cream that is applied . Take off the plastic sheet ( kling film ) after 15 - 30 minutes and let the volatile components of the cream to evaporate. The patient can now go home. We"ll leave the peel solution and the cream act until the following morning.
Post-peel (2-3 days)
The skin sloughs off very little, often not even visibly.
Moisturize the skin with the Skin Tech"s moisturizing and vitamin-E antioxidant cream
Inter Peel (between two sessions of Easy Phytic Peel)
The patient should avoid exposure to direct sunlight and use a sunscreen. He should use at home the same cream as the cream that was used under occlusion. Cosmeceutic creams should be applied twice a day: purifying ( acne ) and "bleaching-blending" ( pigmentations ) should be applied once a day on the whole face and once a day just on the lesions. Anti ageing creams should be applied this way: if we only use "Renutriv ACE lipoic complex": apply it in the morning and in the evening, before sunscreen. If we decided to use "Phyto DHEA" cream, apply it in the morning and use the "Renutriv" in the evening.
Easy Phytic peel is the first "time release" AHA peeling that does not need any neutralization, even if the pH is very low and the amount of free and active acid is very high. This confers to EPP a very high level of activity and security. The association of glycolic + lactic + mandelic acid combines their known efficacy to the anti oxidant, anti tyrosinase and chelating action of phytic acid.
Massage the area treated, to ensure the productâ€™s even application, until the stinging sensation has diminished appreciably. This stinging sensation is very mild but may persist for more than half an hour.
