Lactic Acid Peel
A lactic 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 the actions of a glycolic peel. These two mild peel alphahydroxy acids (AHA) 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 facial skin without the irritation, discomfort, and recovery time associated with deeper peels. Because a lactic peel is the most gentle, it is a great option for those with sensitive skin who are worried about unwanted effects. Patients with rosacea would also benefit more from a lactic peel.
Lactic peel treatments 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, you may wish to speak with a skin care specialist about the benefits of a lactic peel.
