Q: Can I use the Fruit Acid 15% Gel Peel UNDER my eyes and ON eyelids? I am also seeking a treatment that will diminish horizontal lines on the décolletage. I do not have neck wrinkles on my neck or face but oddly circular lines on this area. My décolletage was one of my best assets, now I want to hide it. I spoke to my Dermatologist & plastic surgeon, both said there is no treatment available. What are your recommendations for this area? Does a treatment exist? Thanks in advance!
A: Thanks so much for your email. Regarding putting the Fruit Acid 15% Gel peel around your eyes and on the eyelids – I wouldn’t recommend it. There’s just too much risk of it getting in your eyes – I wouldn’t take the risk.
Regarding lines on your chest, at least you found an honest plastic surgeon! But I’d hate to say I know more than a Dermatologist and a plastic surgeon combined, if they say there is no treatment. Although, you can try a peel – it won’t hurt, and would definitely improve skin’s texture and tone, and the alpha hydroxy acids in it signal skin to produce more collagen, which plumps lines and wrinkles. I’d recommend our Lactic Acid 10% Gel Peel or the Fruit Acid 15% Gel for improving the look of décolletage. And on stubborn lines I sometimes also use a retinoid ( Any cream with 1% retinol like ROC or a stronger tretinoin like prescription Retin A or Refissa, ) – rubbing it nightly into the deep crease. I hope that helps!
