Questions & Answers for Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta® Daily Face Peel

Question
Can you use this product if you have rosacea?

answer 1
I met Dr. Gross at an event a few weeks ago & his staff did this peel on my skin. I have mild rosacea & Dr. Gross said this is an ideal product for my condition. It has anti aging properties & exfoliators that will improve my skin. After the peel, I was hooked. I usually stay away from anti aging products because most products irritate my sensitive skin. Not these, they work great. My skin is considerably less red and it's only been 2 weeks. I can use the every day.

I have mild roseaca, I was diagnosed with it several years ago but have minimal symptoms. I use it 1-3 times per week and the results are beautiful glowing skin.

I have mild rosacea and it's helped so far. I'm not very far into the first 30 days of use, but my redness has decreased.

I was advised by a dermatologist that I had rosacea a couple of years ago. The rosacea perscription cream made things worse. I went on a course of tetracycline and used cortisone cream. Neither an ideal solution.

A local spa began to sell and treat with the MD skincare/Dr Gross line. So I went for a facial peel and was surprised to find my 'rosacea' had calmed down. I purchased the cleanser and pads and aside from few breakouts when I am either very stressed out/hormonal/ or have stopped my regimen for whatever reason I have been using this product and it has not irritated my skin.

Try it & use it how it best works for you. If daily is too much, try every other day & so on. For me, I can't skip a day AND I am very dry. If I do, within a couple of days I'm flaking again. It's not just an exfoliator - it balances the skin - whatever your skin type.

I have pretty good skin, and I just use this for extra oomph. I use it about once a week. My skin is slightly on the dry side, and I can't imagine using this daily - I do see immediate results after one use.

Hi - yes this product is meant to be used daily, but some reviewers have reported using it every other day with good results. I don't think this is something you use every day forever. At some point you will have achieved all the exfoliation you can and then you would take a break for months or a year perhaps.

I have the PTR unwrinkle pads and just purchased these after trying two samples, these do a little bit better job at giving me a "glow" although I use the PTR ones in the morning as they are a bit less expensive and I use these every other night! Hope that helps :)

Actually, Dr. Dennis Gross has a fantastic retinol he recommends you use after this: Ferulic Acid + Retinol Brightening Solution. I highly suggest trying this. There is no sting whatsoever. It literally feels like putting water on my face.

I think it is perfectly safe to use Retinol day and night, used in combination with the Kinerase Photofacials Kit, I have to say it has definitely made a huge difference in my skin's overall appearance, my freckles have definitlely diminished and have no problem using it daily, even though it leaves your face with a little sting at first, your skin will adapt with daily use, I use it both day and night for my daily regimen, and am so thankful that a Sephora Sales Associate came to my rescue when having a horrific breakout... I realize everyone's skin is different, and I normally have combination skin with hormonal breakouts... My skin has never looked better! I am a makeup artist for photographers as well as a self portrait photographer, and I rely on photoshop less then I ever have! I've turned on so many clients and co-workers to the stuff, it's ridiculous!

Question
Drying out?
I recently purchased the pre-wrapped pads because I feared the jar version would dry out. It sounds like they do sometimes - just wondering, how quickly do they tend to dry out? I am not sure I will be using the peel every day, because with winter weather my skin can get too dried out.

So far, I've had luck by not taking the foil cover off - It's still attached by an inch or so on one side - this and being covered tightly has kept them still very wet!

I do use the pads almost every day, but have never had them become even the slightest bit dry. I was concerned about that too. There is enough extra liquid in the container to keep them moist. Just remember to put the lid on tightly! I love the prewrapped ones for travel.

As a user of this product and a lover of its results, I too have sensitive skin. Mine is the cheek and noise area.
I would say try it at least once on the sensitive areas. If this product irritates those areas, discontinue the use of this product on those areas or better yet. Use the product on your sensitive area last, when the pad is almost dry. That way you are not overwhelming your sensitive areas. Instead you are slightly giving them the benefits also. That’s what I do for my cheeks and noise area. They are the last places I use the pad on, when it is getting close to dry. Don’t forget the tops of your hands too. Mine are looking so much better.

Don't cleanse. Instead, you should be moisturizing after step 2.

No cleansing after using the product. The instructions say to just put on an SPF (at least 15) moisturizer if you're using this during the day, or just your night cream if you're using it at night.

Skin gets oilier?
I've used a few samples of this now and while it makes my skin look great right afterward, about 6 or 7 hours later, my face is SO oily it looks wet! My mineral foundation is a slick mess as well. Has anyone else noticed this? If so, does it go away after consistent use? This stuff is just too expensive for me to experiment.

I have noticed that a few hours after applying this treatment that I do have what appears to be oily, sort of sticky skin (I use a foundation make up afterwards). The way that I minimize this is by using an oil free moisturizer after step 2 (one that contains salicyclic acid). This helps in general to keep skin from getting too oily throughout the day. I do not use the md skincare moisturizer afterwards.

I too have very oily skin, but I usually use this at night and do not wake up very oily at all. I use this before disembarking from international flights, and have also not noticed this problem (though the air is much drier in planes, perhaps soaking up any excess oil). I've tried the Philosophy brands and Pat Wexler's, but I really like this the best. You might need to experiment with other brands to try and find your perfect match.

Does it diminish age spots?
I have freckles and LOVE them. As I've gotten older, I'm finding that a lot of face creams/treatments work on "age spots," which is exactly what I DON'T want as they make my freckles go away.

Freckles and age spots are not the same thing. This is a peel. It won't do anything permanent to your age spots or freckles. It just will brighten and even the complexion by taking off a layer of dead skin.

I have been using the two step exfoliating pads for a month now and I have not noticed any lightening of my freckles. I too like my freckles. So far I have not noticed any visible difference to my skin, not better not worse. So for $120 for 60 days, I don't know if I'll reorder.

I wouldn't use a toner. This product has 2 steps - first you use a AHA-based peel wipe, then a neutralizer wipe. Most toners contain alcohol, so I'd be concerned that using an AHA peel right afterward would result in irritation, due to the chemical reaction between the AHA & the alcohol in the toner. I don't think you'd need to use a toner before a peel anyway. Kind of too much of a good thing ;-)

Just use the cleanser. There is no need to use a toner b/c this is an exfoliating peel. It would not only just wipe the toner off, but it also might irritate your skin b/c the peel can be pretty intense if you have sensitive skin.
