How to remove sun damage on my legs?

I have lots of sun damage and brown spots from years in the sun. How can I remove the brown spots from my legs and arms?

Stacey Berstein from Miami told us her secret. 2 years ago while attending a fashion show in Milan, she ask one of the model who told her to try the Body Peel. The Body Peel is a tca skin peel she bought from a plastic surgeon in Miami. She said after applying the peel twice to her legs the brown spots disappeared. But you need to use sunblock to prevent hyperpigmentation after the treatment.

I actually buy the larger bottle (100ml) and use it on my whole legs and arms. I spent about $250 and the brown spots are completely gone. YEAH!!!!

I buy it directly from the website and they ship it to me in Europe.

I cannot buy RETIN-A without a prescription, is there alternatives?

RETIN-A Alternatives?

Yes, there is products out there can are like Retin A or with same ingredients and we found one that is organic, vegan and kosher! The I'm Fabulous Retinol 2% cream.

 Stephanie Berg from the incredible Monte Carlo Spa, rave about it! We use it here on all our clients and they come back to buy more of them.

What is the TCA Gorgeous Peel ?

Tca Gorgeous Peel TM            

This is I’m Fabulous Cosmetics bestseller and most recommended chemical peel.  

Incredible New Technology Facial Peel
The strength of this peel is between 10 and 19%, pH 2.0
This fabulous TCA chemical peel, it is safe for all skin type and will give you amazing results!
- No need to get off of work.
- No downtime at all!
- Apply makeup after the peel

             I’m Fabulous Cosmetics Gorgeous Peel have been proven to:

-Reduce lines and wrinkles under the eyes and mouth area
-Pose as anti aging and sun damage treatment of wrinkles
-Treat acne scarsProven acne treatment
-Reduce age spots, freckles and dark spots from pregnancy also known as a condition called melasma.
There is many skin peels out there.... Jessner, Lactic, Glycolic, Phenol, TCA, etc...
Doing a perfect TCA PEEL requires that you use the LEAST STRENGTH needed to abrade the stratum corneum layer. This is a percentage over 10% and under 20.
TCA over this strength will cause the skin to frost or turn white (similar to an light broiler burn).
The Gorgeous Peel from I’m Fabulous ® has a proven theory of abrading just enough of the stratum corneum to cause the skin to send valuable protein to the surface. When you frost the skin too deeply, your body goes into wound repair mode where it creates antibodies, scar tissue, melanin and other secretions, which may easily cause the skin to age faster!
Melanin is produced when you tan, and when you are wounded and when you have surges of progesterone (hormonal hyper pigmentation). When you go too deep into the epidermis or sub cutis layers by using high doses of a caustic chemical, your skin produces healing protein to bandage the chemical peel. This is not the correct way to do a peel.
An incredible peel! Selling like crazy in Europe in physician offices already!
Due to the intense mix of active ingredients it will cause a very fast drying and drawing of the topmost .01 micron. In most cases this will peel almost instantly or within 24 hours.                               
The Gorgeous peel tends to be a rather rapid exfoliation and one that you can expedite by compressing a warm cloth or even using your ring finger to roll the dead skin off. 
Will the treatment help to remove my pregnancy masque?
Yes. However, you will probably need to do more than one Peel treatment.
Will the treatment help to remove my freckles?
The treatment will not remove freckles that you were born with. However, it will help in the removal of freckles caused by sun damage, pregnancy mask and aging.
I have severe acne; will the treatment help my condition?
The treatment will help to treat the problems left once the acne has been properly treated under the guidance of your doctor or dermatologist. Such problems can range from, the marks left by acne, uneven skin tone, rough thickened skin and hyper-pigmentation.
My acne scarring (pitted) is extremely slight; will the treatment help to remove it?
The Gorgeous Peel treatment will only penetrate as deep as the epidermal (outer) layers of skin. It will never penetrate into the dermis (bottom) layer of skin. Therefore, if you are treating pitted acne scarring (as light as they may be) then the treatment will not be able to remove these marks totally as they generally tend to be deep in the bottom (dermis) layer of skin. It will however, help to make these scars less noticeable than they were before you did the treatment.
Will the Gorgeous Peel remove my pitted acne scarring?
If you are treating acne scarring in the form of darkened or reddened marks then the Gorgeous Peel treatment will help to remove these marks. The Gorgeous Peel treatment will only penetrate as deep as the epidermal (outer) layers of skin. It will never penetrate into the dermis (bottom) layer of skin. Therefore, if you are treating pitted acne scarring then the treatment will not be able to remove these marks totally as they generally tend to be deep in the bottom (dermis) layer of skin. It will however, help to make these scars less noticeable than they were before you did the treatment. An ideal candidate for one of our treatments is someone who is looking for improvement rather than perfection.
Can I apply Makeup after the Gorgeous Peel?
Yes but preferably mineral makeup because you do not want to apply anything cream or moisturizing.
Is the Gorgeous peel good for all skin types?
Yes, dark skin and all skin types
I'm Fabulous skin care theory is to PEEL more than you HEAL!!!
 The second benefit of facial resurfacing that is done CORRECTLY is the SURGE of collagen and elastin that occurs post peel.
The trick behind an awesome peel is to FOOL the skin into secreting a TON of natural collagen and elastin to the effected area. BUT! If you DO burn you skin, using high doses (some are very unrepeatable), then ALL of that natural protein becomes WOUND REPAIR and it will have NO benefit to your new skin growth, for it is used up on trying to HEAL the skin that is in trauma.
The concept of resurfacing is LOST on this type of peel because the skin spends MORE TIME HEALING, than it does peeling.
A peel done correctly is a proven theory of abrading just enough of the stratum corneum to cause the skin to send valuable protein to the surface. When you FROST the skin too deeply, your body goes into WOUND REPAIR MODE where it creates antibodies, scar tissue, melanin and other secretions, which MAY easily cause the skin to age faster! Melanin is produced when you tan, and when you are wounded and when you have surges of progesterone (hormonal hyper pigmentation). When you go too deep into the epidermis or sub cutis layers by using high doses of a caustic chemical, your skin produces HEALING PROTEIN to bandage the chemical peel.
The concept of resurfacing the epidermis (face) has been around for many years. 20 years ago, plastic surgeons were doing WIRE DERMABRASION techniques that removed the stratum corneum and about 10-20 full micron of skin. The healing process was devastating for most patients. They suffered from hyper (dark) and hypo (white) pigmentation and an uneven skin surface.
In the last 20 years and have perfected the technique of LASER RESURFACING.
However it is STILL both expensive and has a 4-month healing process.
Most people cannot GO 4 months without working or being seen in public.
The concept of resurfacing the skin using A MILDER technique of facial resurfacing is one that is beneficial in TWO very specific ways. By abrading (killing and removing) small amounts of skin, about .01-.03 micron per treatment, you will expose SMOOTHER skin after just ONE result.
I'm Fabulous has developed the "Gorgeous peel" it is like a slow laser resurfacing treatment, one that even with my microdermabrader, I could NEVER MATCH because at one sitting, I'm taking off .01 micron, whereas the skincare products are a slow transdermal delivery removing a safe .03 micron per 4-6 days. Since it is ongoing, the new skin cell turnover is so RAPID; the anti aging benefits are HUGE. This rapid turnover triggers a wound repair reaction, so the skin floods the epidermis/stratum with COLLAGEN / ELASTIN-DNA REPAIR. And since there is no wound, or fire to extinguish, these proteins simply begin repairing and rebuilding cells on their own. Its TRULY rapid age reversal.
Is there any discomfort?  Could be a tiny bit. The application will sting until it has acclimated to the skins natural PH level. Although salt can shut this product down it is not recommended that you stop the peel before it has finished. I recommend having a cold wet cloth at the ready to hold and press onto the skin for comfort sake.
Is there any 'down time' that I should be prepared for? No downtime, you can apply mineral makeup only, if needed after the peel. You will feel your skintight for about 48 hours after the peel then your skin will peel off gently. You can redo the peel anytime, and you can even do 2 or 3 layers, meaning you apply it 2 or 3 times on your face then start looking at the clock to start the 3 minutes, then rinse off.
Seriously, how will I look? You will look fine! No worse than managing a peeling suntan!
Can I do a little test spot first? Yes! I insist that you do! In fact personally I never do a full-face peel. I do my lower nasal folds and chin on one treatment and then forehead on a second week. There is no special formula of application that you have to follow. 
How many peels will I get in this 1 oz. bottle? You will be able to do more than 100 applications with just 1 oz.
I'm Fabulous Cosmetics pure Hyaluronic Acid serum is highly recommended for post peel.  
The key to flawless skin is RAPID EXFOLIATION followed by INFUSION OF PROTEIN (hyaluronic protein).
Buyer and user must wear a Sunblock after the peel for several months.
You are NOT a good candidate for a chemical peel if any of the following apply at the peel site:
•               Infection or disease
•               Cut or broken skin
•               Sunburn
•               Currently have an active Herpes simplex 1 sore 
•               If you are nursing or pregnant
•               If you have taken Accutane in last 6 months
•               If you currently have Psoriasis, Eczema, Dermatitis or Rosacea.You are not a suitable candidate if you have used any of the following drugs in the last 48 hours: Retin-A, Renova, Prescription skin care products, Products that contain ascorbic acid, bleaching or skin-lightening agents, other acid products.
This peel is not recommended for patients with: inflammatory process in the area to be treated, re-occurring herpes infections, pregnancy (confirmed or suspected), sun related activities and mental problems.

#1. Clean your skin very well with soap and water. Then if you have oily skin, degrease it with alcohol first.
Then, Using a square cotton pad:
Apply the Gorgeous peel to your face for 4 minutes then rinse well with soap and water. 
Get a cold wet washcloth with soap and water at the ready. 
Apply it quickly and don't linger. 
Avoid eyes and lips.
Do not apply anything on your face for 4 days. You can use mineral makeup immediately after the peel if needed. But no ointment, creams or serums. Remember you want to peel.
You can go back to your regular activities like going to the gym, to work, take showers go swimming, ect.
If you go in the sun, sunscreen SPF 30 is required.
When your skin start peeling apply warm cloth on the area to accelerate peeling and scrub with a small towel.
It usually take 4 days for your skin to flake of or peel off. 
#3. On day #4, Apply the Hyaluronic acid serum (for proteins infusion) in warm compress (using a warm towel), for 20 minutes, daily or as needed.
#4. After day #4 of the peel, start using the Vitamin C Super Serum each morning before your makeup, it will clear and lighten your complexion.
You can redo the peel any time you feel you need more and you can also do multiple layers, just remember the more you do it the more you will peel off.
DO NOT USE ANY CREAMS OR SERUMS after the peel, until your skin flakes or peel off. Wait about 5 days to apply the Hyaluronic acid serum.

Cream vs. Serum

Cream vs. Serum
Due to the sheer number of skincare products on the market with different consistencies, the average consumer
is often confused when selecting the most suitable product. 

In this issue, we will provide you with some tools to help you make the best selection.
Let's start with the basics – what is the difference between a Serum and a Cream?
Medical licensed esthetician and anti-aging manufacturer Anis Lacerte believe that creams have been around for a long time and are still the most popular form of skin care.
Creams are typically made by mixing oil with water.
They tend to be moisturizing in action and may or may not contain active ingredients to address specific skin concerns. 

However, you always want to look for creams with active ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, VITAMIN E, and Q10.
Generally, creams are best suited for normal and dry skin types.

Serums are the new kids on the block and are gaining loyal followers quickly.
Serums tend to be more liquid-like and are water based. This makes them lightweight and easily absorbed into the skin.
Best serums are formulated to deliver topical ingredients such as peptides
, Matryxl 3000, and m-Tranexamic Acid more effectively.

Serums are a concentrated way to get key ingredients into the skin.
Serums can be layered on (normally no more than 3 at a time) without adverse effects or degrading efficacy of the
Since serums tend to be light and water based, they are suitable for most skin types. 

The bottom line: Cream or Serum?
The most important factors in determining if you should select a Serum or Cream are your skin type,
weather, and your living environment.

Cream-based skincare is most suitable for people with dryer skin since they lack moisture and are most prone to tightness
and peeling. Reinforcing skincare with cream-based products will help restore sebum and moisture to the skin, thereby
delaying the speed at which moisture escapes from the skin.

People with combination skin and those who live in island or humid environments can also use cream-based skincare
during seasonal changes. You can reinforce your hydrating efforts by simply applying cream based products to areas
prone to dryness and peeling. People who work in air-conditioned areas can also reinforce their skincare with
cream-based products to protect skin from moisture loss.

Oily and/or acne prone skin are prone to oil and have slower renewal cycles.
If you use cream-based products with high oil content, it can cause your pores to become clogged, thereby increasing
occurrence of pimples or acne. For people with oil or acne prone skin, we would recommend that you use oil-free
serums or lotions with lighter consistencies to lock in moisture.
Basic Tip:
Regardless of whether you use serum or cream-based skincare products, we recommend that you start with
products that have lighter consistencies since they have smaller molecular sizes and are easily absorbed.
Proceed to layer with products that have heavier consistencies. 

An affordable pain-less alternative of Botox

Although Botox ® is highly effective in reducing expression lines, it is expensive and requires physician-administered injections. Therefore, researchers spent years to develop alternative compounds that display the effect of Botox® at a lower cost. Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 (trade name Argireline) is one of most promising new Botox ® alternatives.
Using Clostridium Botulinum bacterium to block the transmission of nerve impulses, Botox® erases line by temporarily paralyzing muscle contraction. It is fast, easy and effective. The result can last up to 6 months. The biggest disadvantage is that if administering Botox® to the wrong nerve ends, or the patient didn't follow the post injection care instruction, facial movements might be compromised, causing temporary unnatural expression.

Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 PEPTIDES
Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 works by intercepting the signal of muscle contraction. It relaxes facial tension, leading to the reduction in facial lines and wrinkles with regular use. This mimics the effect of Botox ®, which reduces facial tension and movement by paralyzing facial muscles.

Comparing those two choices, although Botox® is a faster alternative, the cost is higher and its potential side effects might be inhibiting factors for some. Even though Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 cannot erase wrinkles completely, clinical study shows that Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 at a 10% concentration reduces the depth of wrinkles up to 30% after 30 days of use. Best of all, it has no side effects! If you are looking for a solution for expression lines but have only a moderate budget, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is an affordable alternative to treat your wrinkles. I'm Fabulous Biophotonic Skin Care offer a fabulous serum loaded with peptides. 
The Super Peptide Anti aging Serum with Fast Action Brightening serum is organic, vegan and kosher as well.
