Lactic acid peel

What is a lactic acid peel?

Lactic acid peels are a type of chemical peel made from AHA (alpha hydroxy acids). They are very mild as they are derived from milk, with a very small chance of an allergic reaction happening. If you have sensitive skin or have never done a chemical peel before, a lactic acid peel will be perfect for you.

Benefits of a lactic acid peel

Lactic acid peels have many benefits for the skin, including:

  • Exfoliating the surface of the skin, while deep cleaning the pores.
  • Stimulating natural collagen production, evening out skin tone and improving hyperpigmentation of the skin. This will fade dark spots.
  • Brightening the skin, and improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Improvements in acne and drying out oily skin.
  • Removing dead skin cells, toxins, and debris that are on the skin.
  • Maintaining the skin’s ideal PH level.


After a lactic acid peel, the skin will be very sensitive. It is a good idea to wear sunscreen after the peel and to avoid the sun if possible. Should you experience any itching or redness, please contact us.
