The Enlighten RX is a peel that works in suppressing the melanocytes on the dermal level. There is not much peeling that happens due to the fact that we remove the dead skin prior to putting on the peel mask.
In order for your peel to penetrate and get best results the manufacturer suggests that we remove the dead skin for deeper penetration of the bleaching agents.
The effects can last for over a year as long as you take care of your skin properly. The most important factor is continuing to use your spf. The bleaching cream included in your kit can be used for no more than 6 months.
