Naturally occurring in milk, lactic acid is an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA), which increases the skin’s natural moisture levels and can resurface the skin. The time frame of the treatment and the strength at which it is applied (between 30-80%) will depend on how your skin reacts and the desired results. Ultra Lactic Acid peels work by loosening the thick surface layers of the skin and stimulating the deeper layers. Smoother and healthier skin is expected after the upper layers are sloughed away.
**Results may vary from person to person**
Low level light therapy (LLLT with Healite II is a non-invasive and pain free treatment that affects your body at a cellular level by delivering concentrated energy deep into your tissue. This upgrades your treatment and takes it to the next level, as it can improve healing times, soothe active acne, relieves pain, promotes skin rejuvenation and enhances your body’s overall natural cellular recovery.
We recommend six lactic acid peels at two weekly intervals for noticeable improvements, with less or more possibly required according to your personal desired results, the condition being treated, your home skin care regime and the strength of the peels. Maintenance peels to retain the benefits can then be done at 2-3 monthly intervals, along with a daily AHA skin care routine. This ongoing skin care program uses advanced products containing a therapeutic level of AHA’s at an active PH, along with other active ingredients.
It’s likely that when the peel is applied you will experience an itchy, tingling sensation for a few minutes, with stronger solutions stinging a little, but the actual peel takes between 10-20 minutes.
Some patients, particularly those with sensitive skin or those having stronger peels, may experience some redness but most go straight back to normal activities. Some people may have some mild skin flaking after a few days, but this does not determine the effectiveness of the peel.
