Lactic Acid Peels

Reveal Your Radiant Skin with Azura

Azura Dental is your destination for lactic acid peels, a resurfacing skincare treatment.

Lactic acid, a hydrating alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), is utilised as a safe and effective exfoliating peel treatment. When delicately applied to the skin, lactic acid targets the epidermis, the uppermost layer, promoting a regular shedding process and ensuring consistent turnover of skin cells. This action involves gently lifting and eliminating dead cells while dissolving the adhesive substance that binds these cells and debris to the skin’s surface. As a result, the dull and damaged skin cells are sloughed away, revealing a smoother, fresher, and healthier complexion.

Lactic acid peels also benefit in the treatment of age spots, hyperpigmentation, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improving oily, acne-prone skin with consistent use. What makes lactic acid peels even more versatile is their mildness, making them suitable for individuals suffering from conditions like rosacea.

As with any AHA treatment, it is essential to prioritise sunscreen application as part of your routine after the peel. This is because peels can increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun’s harsh rays, and protecting your skin from potential damage is crucial.

Lactic acid is a milder exfoliating agent compared to other chemical peels, such as glycolic acid or salicylic acid.

However, it is important to consult with a skincare professional to determine the appropriate concentration and duration of the peel based on your skin's specific needs and sensitivity.

During a lactic acid peel, a skincare professional will cleanse your skin and apply the lactic acid solution. You may experience a mild tingling or warming sensation, but it should not be uncomfortable. The peel is typically left on the skin for a specific duration before being neutralized or rinsed off. After the treatment, you may notice some immediate redness, which should subside within a few hours.

Depending on the strength of the peel, you may experience some mild flaking or peeling in the days following the treatment. It is crucial to protect your skin from the sun and follow any post-peel instructions provided by your skincare professional to optimize the results and minimize the risk of complications.
