Lactic Peel

Lactic acid can be very effective to the skin. This treatment is easy to tolerate, because of it’s large molecular weight. Lactic is one of the best acid treatments used to address many concerns for many skin types. Lactic acid naturally activates the skin’s water molecules.

Lactic acid is specifically used to treat hyperpigmentation, age spots, and other factors that contribute to a dull and uneven complexion. Other benefits of AHAs like lactic acid include improved skin tone and reduced pore appearance.

However, unlike AHAs such as glycolic acid, lactic acid is a bit milder. This makes a lactic acid peel a better choice for sensitive skin. Lactic acid may also be an option if you’ve tried another AHA in the past and found the product too strong.
