Lightening Drops is a high potency Vitamin C Active that should be introduced after you have had experience with 302’s regular strength Vitamin C formula named C-Drops. Begin not earlier than 30 days after introducing C Drops in order to condition the skin properly and avoid rapid cellular fatigue.
Very high potency products like Lightening Drops (twice the strength of C Drops) can easily push the skin into weakness. You must guide the skin to greater strength a step at a time. You would not go into the gym and expect to do 100 push-ups on the first day and if you tried your muscles would be inflamed for days afterward and that is not healthy. Much is true with the skin therefore if we want excellent, and sustained results we must respect this fact with this, and other potent 302 Actives.
This unique formula incorporates an acid-free Vitamin C (tetrahexydecylascorbate – THDCA) that delivers itself to cellular receptors via an enzymatic cascade that will not irritate the skin as does pure ascorbic acid (the most common form of vitamin C (used for topical application to skin). Scientific literature attests to the efficacy of the THDCA metabolites in calming red blotchy skin and fading out spots and uneven tone. The appearance of melasma and cholasma can often be significantly reduced as well. Stimulating optimum skin functions through THDCA helps to reduce formation of lipofuscin, a waste product that progressively accumulates in and around skin cells as we age. Deep dermal recovery of elastic tissue and better quality protein are also reported in the clinical literature.
This product is indicated for more complex pigmentation problems and is most effective combined with studio care ultrasound therapy. If such studio care is not within access to you we offer the 2 mghz Ultrasound device which is of high quality, and F.D.A cleared for home care use.
