A lactic peel is derived from milk; it is one of the mildest forms of chemical peels and helps to bring the natural moisture to the skin. The lactic peel is especially good for first time users or people with sensitive skin as it does not produce the discomfort, redness and irritation associated with other peels. The recovery time is also lessened. People with rosacea can also benefit from a lactic peel.
The first step in this treatment is to clean the skin and use a toner. The next step would be to degrease the skin by using a medical grade de-greaser on the area of your skin you want to apply the peel. This step will not only remove the surface oil to enhance the peel penetration but also kill bacteria. This step is optional if you have sensitive skin.
The next step will be to apply the peel, the length of time the peel remains on the skin will vary according with how strong the peel is and the sensitivity of the patients skin. The skin is then neutralized with water or a neutralizer that comes along with the specific peel.
The last step in this process will be the application of moisturizer and sunscreen SPF 30.
