Why Choose Lactic Acid?

  • Perfect for All Skin Types: Lactic Acid is exceptionally well-suited for a broad spectrum of skin types (I-VI)*, making it an inclusive choice for diverse skincare needs.

  • Ideal for Various Concerns: Whether you battle acne, mild rosacea, blackheads, or seek to address signs of aging and hyperpigmentation, Lactic Acid proves to be a versatile solution.

  • New to Chemical Peeling? Try Lactic Acid: If you're venturing into the realm of chemical peels for the first time, Lactic Acid is the ideal starting point. Its gentle yet effective nature makes it a welcoming introduction to the world of acid treatments.

  • Sensitivity-Friendly: Tailored for those with sensitive skin, Lactic Acid offers a gentle yet impactful exfoliation experience, ensuring compatibility with even the most delicate skin types.

  • Alternative for Plateaued Skincare Routines: If you've reached a plateau with other acid treatments, Lactic Acid presents itself as an excellent alternative. Its unique properties breathe new life into your skincare routine.

Key Benefits:

  • Surface Debris Removal: Lactic Acid loosens and removes surface debris, facilitating a cleaner canvas for your skin.

  • Comedome Softening: Softening of comedones contributes to a clearer complexion, reducing the appearance of blackheads.

  • Deep Pore Cleansing: Enjoy deep pore cleansing as Lactic Acid works to unclog and purify your pores.

  • Fine Line Softening: Experience the softening of fine lines, promoting a smoother and more youthful appearance.

  • Natural Collagen Stimulation: Lactic Acid proves extremely effective in stimulating natural collagen production, unveiling a fresh and moistened look.

  • No "Down Time" with Visible Results: Unlike traditional peels, there is no noticeable flaking of the skin with Lactic Acid. Instead, experience a gentle sloughing-off of dried sebum and surface skin debris, revealing radiant skin.

  • Mild Stinging to None: Lactic Acid offers a comfortable experience, with mild stinging to none, even at higher percentages.

  • 15% & 25% Strengths: Ideal for first-time users, these strengths usually require no downtime. However, extra care is recommended post-treatment, including a skin-calming serum, lipid-rich moisturizer, and physical sunscreen containing zinc oxide.

Remember, visible peeling is not a prerequisite for results. Lactic Acid consistently delivers improvements in texture, tone, and overall skin appearance, making it an indispensable addition to your skincare routine.

Embark on a journey to radiant skin with our Lactic Acid Peel—your trusted ally in achieving a fresh and rejuvenated complexion.

Recommended use:
Before applying, be familiar with precautions. Cleanse the skin thoroughly. Gently patch the skin dry. Wait five more minutes for the skin to be completely dry (water neutralize acid). Apply the peel evenly with an applicator ( you can spray on cotton or fingers and gently pat the skin. Leave on  for 3-10 minutes - depending on skin sensitivity -  you can gradually increase how long you leave it on - best every 2 weeks or every 5th peel treatment - whatever comes first. Avoid the eyes. Skin around the brow, nose and mouth area is most sensitive, you may want to avoid it. Remove peel by flushing thoroughly skin with cool water. 
May repeat treatment 1-3 times a week. Don’t repeat the treatment if skin feels irritated - wait till it’s fully recovered.
Lactic acid can cause purging. Lactic acid
speeds up your skin cell turnover rate - this makes microcomedones turn into acne and blemishes more quickly, causing a sudden rush of breakouts on your face.

Precautions: acids increase photosensitivity and must avoid sun after peel treatment. 
A physical Sunblock must be worn daily. Its best to avoid prolonged sun exposure for 1-week post peel.

Glycolic Acid vs Lactic Acid
Glycolic acid:
Smaller molecular size penetrates skin more easily.
Best for sun damaged skin: boosts collagen production and thickens skin.
Although it can increase overall thickness, it also temporarily thins skin.
Lactic acid:
Larger molecular size, doesn’t penetrate skin as well.
Best for dry and sensitive skin: more moisturizing and less irritating.
