Treatment 1: Clarify: Therapeutic Salicylic Acid Mask Protocol for Menopausal Skin

Treatment Protocol


1. Facial Wash – Cleanse the area of treatment thoroughly, remove with warm water and pat dry.


2. Hydrating Toner – Apply with a cotton pad to prep the skin. Allow the skin to dry. This product may sting or tingle on some individuals. Asses sensitivity by asking the patient, “On a scale of one to ten, ten being extremely active, how do you rate this sensation?”


3. Clarify: Therapeutic Salicylic Acid Mask

  • Apply a thin layer to the area of treatment using gloved hands or mask brush.
  • Use the scale of 1 to 10 to gauge sensitivity. Fan the skin to keep the patient cool between layers.
  • Allow to remain on the skin for up to 10 minutes.
  • Remove completely with cotton pads moistened with warm water.
  • The maximum number of layers is one.


4. Customize the protocol with a combination of corrective daily care products to address your patient’s concerns and skincare goals. A suggested combination to target menopausal skin is to combine a pea-sized amount of C&E Advanced and one to two pumps of Total Strength Serum and apply to the entire area of treatment.

Retinoid Booster

5. Advanced Treatment Booster – Dispense two pumps into gloved hands. Gently spread the product over the area of treatment, keeping application even and thin.

  • Use the scale of one to ten to gauge sensitivity. Most patients will not have any sensitivity to this product.
  • The maximum number of layers is one.

Hydrate and Protect

6. HydraLuxe and Hydrator Plus Broad Spectrum SPF 30 – Complete the treatment with this combination to calm, hydrate and protect the skin from UVA and UVB exposure.

7. Hyaluronic Acid Lip Booster – Finish with a liberal application to improve hydration and reduce the appearance of lip lines.

Note: Apply the appropriate PCA SKIN broad spectrum SPF product prior to applying Hyaluronic Acid Lip Booster to protect the lips from UVA and UVB exposure.
