Your aesthetic specialist will assess the condition of your skin and provide you with a customized treatment plan. During your treatment, your skin will be appropriately cleansed and prepared. This chemical peel uses lactic acid to chemically exfoliate the top layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing plump and dewy skin. Naturally derived from fermented sugar, lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that hydrates and firms and reduces wrinkles and pigmentation. During your peel, you will feel a slight tingling, itching or heat sensation on your skin as the active ingredients begin to work. After your peel, your skin will be replenished and hydrated, and protected with an SPF. The lactic acid peel is tolerable and leaves the skin looking fresh and vibrant. It also increases the efficacy of your medical grade skincare products, by boosting their absorption.
This treatment is suitable for dryer skin types, and those experiencing their first signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and pigmentation. It is suitable for Fitzpatrick skin types I - IV.
