Frequently asked Questions

Q: What is MTHV Complex?

A: Our proprietary MTHV® Complex contains Metallothionein (MT) and Hirudin (HV). MT is a powerful, organic anti-oxidant “power protein”, which scavenges oxidative, free radical damage from the surface of the skin. HV is a natural blood thinner, which when applied topically, thins and disburses red lines under the skin which are actually blood particulates, allowing the body to reabsorb them.

Q: What is a protein peel?

A: A protein peel is a gentle, but highly effective method of removing dead skin cells. The ingredients are engineered to bind with protein (dead skin cells) and do an excellent job and removing these cells without irritating underlying or surrounding tissue. As a result, there is often much less irritation when compared with mechanical or acidic methods of exfoliation.

Q: When I applied my peel and waited 20-30 seconds, the peel seemed dry and didn’t activate properly – what can I do differently?

A: Sometimes when the peel is applied is dry or low humidity conditions, it can become dry and will fail to activate. In these situations, begin massaging the peel into the skin immediately after application rather than waiting 20-30 seconds. The peel should activate in approximately 15 seconds and will exfoliate effectively after activation.
