A lactic Acid peel is an alpha hydroxy acid which is derived from milk. This acid penetrated into the epidermis and breaks the bonds, which holds skin cells together. The upper layers of the skin peel off revealing new, younger-looking skin underneath, with fewer lines and wrinkles and other imperfections.
Chemical peels, including Lactic peels, are notable for their customisability. Your doctor can tailor the concentration of lactic acid, and combine it with other peels to get the level of rejuvenation required. In this way, lactic peels can improve a wide range of unwanted skin symptoms, from mildto moderate.
BENEFITS OF A LACTIC PEEL:
By allowing your body to release the uppermost layer of your skin which contains many imperfections, lactic acid peels alone or in combination with other acids, can reduce the appearance of many skin problems and reveal the new skin layers underneath.
TARGETED AREAS OF CONCERN:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Uneven skin tone
- Sun damage
POST MICRONEEDLING DOWNTIME:
Lactic peels are safe. After your peel, you may experience some redness and swelling. The most common side effects of a peel resemble a mild sunburn, and your skin may be sensitive to sun a day after your peel. These symptoms generally subside within a day or two.
