physicians chemical peels
Mid-superficial restructuring peel for acne scars and skin roughness. A professional chemical peel with high content of lactic acid and sodium lactate for a buffered pH.
Lactic acid is naturally found in the skin as part of a metabolic process and helps maintain the pH of the acid mantle between 4.5 and 5.5. It exerts a natural moisturising effect on the skin by attracting water molecules to the stratum cornea and stimulates the synthesis of ceramides, improving and modulating the barrier function. It is known as a skin-lightening agent, as it induces homogeneous melanin dispersion.
Furthermore, it has antioxidant effects and inhibits the action of tyrosinase, an enzyme that participates in the first stages of melanogenesis. But the best indication of lacto peel is to restore an even skin structure and surface. It can be helpful to reduce the appearance of scars and to reduce hyperkeratosis.
