3 Benefits of Lactic Acid

Cleopatra, the Egyptian queen, was rumoured to bathe in spoiled milk as she believed it reduced wrinkling and kept her skin soft and smooth. She was on to something, and with modern technology we are able to vastly improve the wonderful benefits of the key ingredient in her youth inducing baths.

Lactic Acid (an Alpha Hydroxy Acid) is a milk derived acid that gently removes the surface layer of dead skin cells to expose the fresher more youthful skin underneath. Lactic Acid is one of the more gentle AHA's and is fantastic for individuals that have a more mature skin type, or those that have some sensitivity. Great for face, hands, shoulders, back, etc.

Lactic Acid peels performed in-clinic give us the option of using stronger concentrations to achieve a more immediate result. For home use, in between treatments, we recommend our Lactic Acid Gel to maintain the result.

3 benefits you can expect to see from your Lactic Acid Peel:

  • Fading of dark spots and an evening out of skin tone

With regular peels done over time, dark spots and pigmentation irregularities begin to fade and skin tone begins to even out.  By reducing visible sun damage, skin automatically appears more youthful. 

  • A Refreshed & brighter complexion

Goodbye dull & dreary. Removing the top layer of dead skin cells allows the younger and fresher skin underneath to glow!   

  • A Deep cleanse of pores with a reduction in blemishes

A regular lactic acid peel helps keep pores clean and clear of blemish inducing debris to help reduce & eliminate breakouts.
