Lactic Acid Peel

Treatment Outline

The Lactic Acid Peel is designed to treat mild pigmentation or lightly exfoliate.

Lactic acid peels exfoliate your skin’s surface and help improve skin cell turnover rates. The removal of skin cells can help encourage the skin’s production of natural elastin and collagen. This in turn may help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

This peel is exceptional for minimizing pore size while it lightens and hydrates the skin in a comfortable manner without excess peeling.


Circadia’s Lactic Acid peels are gentle, safe and suitable for most skin types. Lactic Acid is not only effective for lessening the appearance of hyperpigmentation but is also considered hydrating.

There is no downtime and clients should expect little or no physical peeling.

This peel is offered in 35% and 45% concentration.

  • Expected Results

    The immediate result is that your skin feels softer. A series of peels, used over weeks or months, along with a daily skin care regime, sloughs away the top layer of dead skin cells (stimulating cell turnover) to reveal fresher healthier less pigmented skin.

    For certain skin issues, like fading dark marks and erasing fine lines, it will take multiple chemical peel treatments to see results. 1-2 treatments for 6-8 weeks will usually give you optimal results. Again, these results will depend on your skin, the strength of the peel, the frequency of the peel, and how well you take care of your skin post-peel.

    It can be repeated once a month.
