Lactic Acid peel is a light chemical peel that is derived from milk. A lactic peel is one of the most mild and gentle cosmetic chemical peels available on the market. The peeling process of a lactic peel is very similar to a glycolic peel. These two mild Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) peels can actually be combined to synergistically exfoliate the skin while reducing the risk of irritation and dryness.
A lactic peel is an excellent and effective cosmetic chemical peel option for individuals who seek the enhancement of their skin without the irritation, discomfort, and recovery time associated with deeper peels. Because Lactic Acid is the most gentle of acid peels it is a great option for those with sensitive skin. Clients with rosacea would also benefit more from a lactic peel.
Lactic peels are a safe and effective way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, even pigmentation, and treat acne. A lactic peel can also improve the appearance of sun damaged skin. If you are new to acid chemical peels this is the one for you.
