Lactic acid is one of the gentlest AHAs around and is generally well-tolerated by most skin types, even sensitive skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea. As a humectant, lactic acid does not dry the skin like other AHAs.
With a strict doctor-developed protocol, professionally trained therapists and consultants, our Gentle Milk Peel can safely lighten skin dullness, remove dead skin cells and moisturise skin.
Our consultants will take the time to discuss whether your goals and expectations for the treatment are realistic, and also discuss with you all our Gentle Milk Peel benefits and risks.
Adverse reactions are rare, but can result in hyperpigmentation.
Following our Gentle Milk Peel, patrons should not expect side effects commonly seen with most peels, such as mild irritation, redness, and peeling. If any, these side effects will usually last for only a few days. Alpha hydroxy acids such as lactic acid may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Use sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure.
The majority of customers who undergo our Gentle Milk Peel suffer no serious side effects as a result of the procedure, and most say that they would gladly repeat the treatment. However, potential severe risks of peels include permanent scarring, permanent pigment change for people with darker skin, and chemical burns.
Because peels can cause adverse reactions, prior to undergoing any, treatment you should provide our consultants and/or doctor with a complete medical history and inform us if you have/are:
- A history of heart disease
- Recurring fever blisters or cold sores
- A tendency to scar
- Pregnant, may be pregnant, lactating, breast-feeding, or if you are of child-bearing age with a positive pregnancy test before treatment
