No, I do not rinse my face afterwards but it will leave your face feeling very sticky. But make sure to apply a moisturizing and that takes care of it. I guess if your skin is sensative, then rinse.

The directions say to rinse it off. I always leave it on longer than it says. I put it on my skin when I go into the bathroom and then rinse once I am in the shower, so it is a good 5 minutes or more.

Acne scars
Does this product help fade old acne scars?
asked 3 years, 5 months ago
megan22

on Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads
6 answers
Answers
answer 1
Yes, it can help to fade acne marks, depending on the rest of your skin care regimen. Fading post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (ie, old acne scares) requires two main focuses: exfoliation and protection.

Using a product like the PTR unwrinkle peel pads will help to speed the skin cells' turn over, thus increasing how fast new skin comes to the surface. That will help them fade by natural renewal, BUT darkness (or pinkness) is worsened by unprotected sun exposure. Whenever you are using an 'anti-aging' or 'fading' system that includes acids, SPF is not only recommended, it's necessary. Primarily because these ingredients can make skin sun sensitive and exposure to UV causes the skin cells that are responsible for pigmentation (melanocytes) to over-react... and there is no fading dark marks when their color is continuously being renewed.

So, yes, use these to fight dark marks. But make SURE to use an spf every day and to reapply!

YES!! I have acne scaring and hyperpigmentation and this product has DRAMATICALLY reduced both. I used to have to pile the makeup on and use tons of concealer just to get my skin to look even and "normal". Ive been using this for about two weeks now and have actually been going out the house sans makeup!! Be patient and follow the directions and you will not be disappointed!

PTR says that they will fade acne scars over time, but I seriously doubt it. I have enlarged pores from sun damage and have been using them for several months and I don't really see a reduction in my pore size. If you have the money, get the Dr. Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha-Beta Peel Pads. They are the best I've found (expensive, though) for fading scars and reducing wrinkles.

Yes, you can use these with a serum. I use these at night (and sometimes in the morning), then apply my serum and moisturizer. Just be SURE to neutralize the pads after 3 minutes by splashing it off with water! Then when your skin dries, apply your serum. I think you will find that along with your Shiseido serum, your skin will be smoother and your pore size will be diminished.

I use it on my neck sometimes, but I find that it sometimes dries out the front of my neck and will actually burn/tingle a little if I use it on my neck too much. I use the pads on my face everyday and my neck maybe 1-2 times a week. I actually use these on my hands too!

I use the pads in the morning. I clean my face with a Pond's cleaning cloth, let my face dry then apply the Un_Wrinkle pad. I leave on for 5 minutes (gradually worked up to 5 mins), then rinse with water in sink or shower. No additional cleaning steps afterward because the un-wrinkle is an exfoliator, so you're left with clean fresh skin. I apply a serum then super sunblock spf 60 (Shiseido face, so light and non-oily) and then makeup.

Depends on your skin type. For me, I have extremely, severely, OILY skin. Bad genes I guess... I also have really clogged pores, blackheads everywhere, whiteheads and post-cystic acne scars. I can actually leave the solution on my face without rinsing it off and I have not had any problems. But my skin is not sensitive at all, so it doesn't bother me. However, if you have normal, normal-dry, dry, or sensitive skin, you should only leave it on for 1 to 2 minutes and work your way up to 3 minutes, and then rinse off. If you don't rinse, you risk having a sensitivity reaction like a sunburn or worse.
Now for those of use who have tough and oily skin and have left the product on, I have two theories about this. 1) I think the product neutralizes once it dries and has absorbed. So it's okay to not rinse it. or 2) You need to rinse it to wash away all the dissolved junk. Remember that enzymes are eating away all the cellular buildup, which contains the sebum and some of the clogs in your pores, so if you don't rinse it away there's a chance that the stuff could just block your pores again by being left to sit on your skin.
After coming up with my 2n'd theory, I decided that I am going to rinse it off from now on just like the directions say to. However, because of my skin type (SEVERELY OILY and NON-SENSITIVE), I can leave the product on for 5 - 10 minutes or longer.

THis or PTR retinol fusion p.m.?
I'm in my twenties and starting to notice the = lines between my eyes and light wrinkles around my eyes and deeper ones on my forehead. I have dealt with severe acne in my early teens and think because of all the harsh chemicals I have used, they have premature aged my skin slightly. Would anyone recommend these over the retinol fusion p.m. for wrinkles?

Honestly, you should use both. This product will help keep you exfoliated and plumped, but the retinol works by stimulating collagen and will help keep wrinkles at bay and 'lessen' the ones you have. Sunscreen, retinol, AHA's and antioxidants are the keys that work together for aging.

I actually use BOTH of these products! I use the peel pads first (don't forget to neutralize the pads after 3 minutes by splashing with water - you must do that!). After my skin dries, I apply the PTR serum, then my moisturizer. These pads are actually designed to be used in conjunction with the serum.

I use a different retinol product at night than PTR retinol fusion (I use Miracle Worker pads), but I have had no problems with irritation. The retinol works on a deeper skin level to re-build collagen, while the Un-Wrinkle pads have acids to smooth surface of skin by speeding up exfoliation. I think the two strategies complement each other to fight wrinkles in two ways. I would recommend starting off by adding the Un-Wrinkle Pads every other am at the shortest amount of time (30-60 seconds) to be sure you don't get any irritation or flaking. Eventually, you could use the Un-Wrinkle Pads in the am and the PTR Retinol Fusion in the pm.

I don't have sensitive skin and I've used these pads nightly for several months, and I do use them around my eyes - but only on the lower orbital bone. I haven't put the formula up around my bottom lashes, but I don't think anyone would need to put it up that far. I have found that they don't burn me at all under my eyes - just remember to neutralize the formula by splashing with warm water after 3 minutes! That is the most important 2nd step, as these are not meant to be left on the skin.

The Max pads have an insane amount of alcohol in them, And it's NOT the good emulsifying alcohols. In general, you should avoid Alcohol Denat. (which is what it has). It's sooo drying and just not good for your skin at all.

I use the Un-Wrinkle pads and LOVE them for glowy/hydrated skin and they do help keep my skin clear of pimples. I haven't noticed a difference in pore size or blackheads on my nose when using these. From the reviews it seems like the Max pads are more intensive and more geared towards blackheads/acne. I didn't think my sensitive skin could handle the Max pads but may try the gentle version for the blackheads on my nose. But I will keep purchasing the Un-Wrinkle pads because they do not dry out or irritate my skin in any way and really make my skin look more vibrant.
