Lactic acid peel is considered as alpha hydroxy acids (AHA). It is very gentle chemical peel, because derived from milk, usually has no downtime. As lactic acid is a natural human metabolite, people experience less chance of an allergic reaction with this type of peel.
Lactic acid peels benefits:
- Exfoliating the surface of your skin
- Deep cleaning pores
- Fading dark marks
- Improving hyperpigmentation
- Making skin tone more even
- Brightening and lightening skin
- Improving the appearance of wrinkles
- Stimulating natural collagen production
During the lactic acid peel, your skin will feel warm and turn pink. This post-peel pink skin could last from a few hours to a few days. It's a normal reaction and will go away by itself. For this period you should wear sunscreen, stay out of the sun, and avoid exfoliating or scrubbing your skin until your skin heals. Lactic acid peels don't burn or make your skin physically peel unless they are at a really high concentration.
The same as all chemical peels, lactic acid peel takes time to work. People tend to expect their skin to show drastic improvements right after they get a peel done, but these improvements don't happen the same day. And just because your skin doesn't look any different immediately after you get a peel, it doesn't mean the peel didn't work. Your skin continues to get better in the days following the peel.
For certain skin issues, like fading dark marks and erasing fine lines, it will take multiple chemical peel treatments to see results. 1-2 treatments per week for 6-8 weeks will usually give you optimal results. Again, these results will depend on your skin, the strength of the peel, the frequency of the peel, and how well you take care of your skin afterwards.
