The XanthRemover is a specialised cosmetic peel customised to remove your Xanthelasma. The XanthRemover is very easy to apply. Please note that the following does not apply to TCA and we have stopped using it in the XanthRemover. The effects of TCA are generally more difficult to control than the peel types used in the XanthRemover. By reading this page you will learn:

  1. How the customized Peel XanthRemover can be applied
  2. What are the effects produced by a particularly mild  formulation on these benign lesions

 

Xanthelasma Before

Xanthelasma Before

The Xanthlasma of this customer were not particularly thick and therefore there is no need for the formulation to contain any TCA. The Xanthelasma underneath the left eye is evident, however there is a little fat formation also on the lower part of the lower eyelid.

In those cases when the best solution for Xanthelasma Removal is the use of TCA it is advisable to add “milding” additives in order to make the formaultion as safe s possible. This is because TCA is not very easy to control and it has been partially restricted in certain countries.

This is classic case of Xanthelasma in an individual aged between 30 and 40 years of age. In this as in many other cases the Xanthelasma are not correlated to high Cholesterol levels.

According to the client no particular event in ther life prompted to the appearance of these benign lesions.

After treating many female customers, we have found that a good number of them have reported the development of the condition soon after giving birth to their first or second child.

In the picture above it is possible to see the two Xanthelasma on the client’s left eye. The typical Xanthelasma on the eyelid close to the corner of the eyes and another on the lower eyelid also close to the corner of the eye.

Self Application on the Xanthelasma

The concentration of the main active ingredient (an Alpha Hidroxy Acid) was lower than usual given that the Xanthlasma was very shallow. The client applied a blob on every Xanthelasma as shown on the above picture. It is important to apply a small blob and leave it on the lesion for a period of time.

Depending on the Xanthelasma, type of formulation and skin type, we instruct the customer to keep the blob for a lengths of time varying from 30 minutes to complete absorption (1 hour).

The longer the gel is kept on the lesion the stronger the peeling effects. Please note that TCA solutions bought from other sources do require the use of Neutralizers after a certain length of time after the application

 

IT IS ALSO VERY IMPORTANT NOT TO STAND UPRIGHT WHEN APPLYINHG THE BLOB. This is because gravity could have the blob to slip down to places were it should not go. Therefore, we recommend to lie down at all the time while you have your XanthRemover blob on. In some cases, depending on where te xanthelasma are located lying down may not be the best option.

Remember, as a general rule, that gravity has to point towards the xanthelasma so that  the blob will be naturally kept in place and not slip elsewhere.

We highly recommend to have someone else to apply the XanthRemover blob for you. If you have Xanthelasma on the upper eyelids, it is very important to KEEP YOUR EYES SHUT over the length of the entire application. This is because if you accidentally open your eyelids the blob could spread to other areas where it should not go.  

Once again, it is important that you are not alone while you have the small blob on, because the other person can supervise the cosmetic treatment and monitor whether the blob is still where it should be (on the Xanthelasma). The other person will therefore help you by monitoring the gel and keep a clean cotton cloth at hand and make sure the gel does not slip anywhere else.
In case the gel escapes, the other person can wipe it off immediately. Also, given that most likely you need to keep your eyes shut during the peeling with the XanthRemover,  the other person can help you in case you need anything, like bringing you water or whatever else you need.

Moreover, the other person can time the length of the cosmetic peel period and wipe the gel off, at the right time, as stated in the instructions.

We requested this client to deliberately wipe off the gel after a predetermined length of time. This was to stop the peeling effect.

In  the above picture, you can see the customer soon after the XanthRemover had been wiped off and the peeling deliberately stopped. This was possible because the formulation was not TCA based.

This is the picture of the Xanthelasma three hours after the XanthRemover formulation was wiped off. It is clearly possible to note that the area where the XanthRemover was previously applied had started reddening.  This is a very normal reaction . However the client never experienced any swelling because the formulation we used was not TCA based.  Normally the use of any TCA based formulation cause also swelling of the area treated not possible to note with the use of this particular formulation.

One day later the area where the XanthRemover formulation was applied showed further reddening. However no swelling. When using TCA based formulations the swelling start to appear the following day after the application and lasts up to one week.

Only three days after the application of the XanthRemover the reddening had stated to disappear and the area to heal.

Three weeks after the application the all the Xanthelasma disappeared. with exception of the left lower eyelid that still presented some traces of the previous lesion.

In this picute it is easy to note how the previous Xanthelasma on the left upper eyelid had disappeared. Of course it is possible to note how the area where the Xanthelasma was could be mistaken for a scar, however this is of course the new skin that had regrown which has not been pigmented by sun exposure as yet. In this picture it is possible to understand how a single application may not be sufficient to eliminate the Xanthelasma completely.
