What i is Lactic Peel 50%/70%
A potent lactic chemical peel is manufactured by a high-quality K Derma. It comes in a professional 50ml brown/amber sun protected glass bottle. Lactic acid is an anti-wrinkle and pigmentation-fighting ingredient found in over-the-counter (OTC) and professional-grade skin care products. Derived from milk, lactic acid belongs to a class of anti-aging ingredients called alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs). Other examples of AHAs include glycolic acid and citric acid.
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.

How to use / Instructions: Lactic acid 50%/70% Peel
- Prepare a neutralizing solution with 2 tbsp of baking soda and 1 cup of water in a small bowl. This solution will be used to deactivate the peel.
- Clean your skin thoroughly and rinse well.
- Wipe rubbing alcohol over your face to remove all oil. Allow to air dry.
- Apply a thick and even layer of lactic acid solution with a small brush. Leave a 2mm margin between the edge of your eyes and the peel.
- Leave the peel to rest on your skin for 2-10 minutes, depending on your tolerance. You can fan your face or use a blow-dryer on cool setting. For the first time users, do not leave it on for more than 1 minute.
- Wash your face with the prepared baking soda solution in order to neutralize the peel.
- Rinse your face with cool water and gently pat it dry. You should feel no stinging at this point. Stinging indicates that the product is still active on your skin, and this can result in a burn.
- Apply you typical moisturizer as usual. When going out, avoid too much sun exposure and wear sunscreen with SPF 15 or higher.
- Your face may be slightly red for a day after the peel, but this will quickly fade and you will see the results develop over the next 7 days as the skin sheds off. The shedding process is not usually noticeable, unlike with a stronger peel.
- This procedure can be repeated every 7-14 days for a series of 5-6 peels
