A high potency Vitamin C Active that 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, we offer the 2 mghz Ultrasound device which is of high quality, and F.D.A cleared for home care use.
