What are the side effects of a lactic acid peel?
After a lactic acid chemical peel your skin will have a red, sunburnt look to it. It may tingle or sting slightly, which is perfectly normal, and a day or so after treatment your skin will begin flake and peel. This is the dead skin shedding from your face to reveal a fresher layer underneath.
How should I look after my skin after my lactic acid peel?
After a chemical peel, skin is more sensitive to the sun because we have treated the top layer and exposed a new one. We would always recommend using sun protection or sun block for up to a week after your lactic acid peel treatment to protect this new skin.
How are lactic acid peels performed at Acukare?
Our experienced practitioner Karen Wade will first cleanse your skin to remove any makeup or oils and apply the chemical peel with a brush to localised areas of the face. The acid will create a controlled wound on the superficial layers of skin, removing the dead skin and preparing new skin to take its place.
What will my lactic acid peel feel like?
You will feel a burning sensation that lasts about five to ten minutes, followed by a stinging sensation. It is not uncommon for this stinging to continue for a day or so. Cool compresses on the skin may ease this stinging.
