A chemical peel facial is a cosmetic procedure that involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate and improve its texture, tone, and overall appearance. Chemical peels are used to address a variety of skin concerns, from acne and hyperpigmentation to fine lines and uneven skin tone. A chemical peel facial that combines lactic acid and salicylic acid is a popular option for addressing various skin concerns.

Lactic Acid

  • Lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) derived from milk.
  • It is known for its mild exfoliating properties and ability to improve skin texture and hydration.
  • Lactic acid helps to remove dead skin cells from the surface, making the skin appear smoother and more radiant.
  • It can also stimulate collagen production, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Lactic acid is suitable for individuals with sensitive or dry skin, as it tends to be less harsh than some other acids.

Salicylic Acid

  • Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) derived from willow bark or synthesised.
  • It is oil-soluble, making it effective for treating acne and clogged pores.
  • Salicylic acid penetrates deep into the pores, helping to dissolve excess oil and unclog them, which can reduce the occurrence of acne.
  • It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help calm irritated skin.

Benefits of Combining Lactic and Salicylic Acids

  • Combining lactic and salicylic acids in a chemical peel offers a well-rounded approach to skincare.
  • Lactic acid exfoliates and hydrates the skin’s surface, leaving it smoother and more radiant.
  • Salicylic acid penetrates deep into the pores, helping to clear out clogs and reduce acne.
  • Together, these acids can improve overall skin texture, reduce acne breakouts, and address uneven skin tone.

These types of chemical peels can be a valuable addition to a skincare regimen to improve skin health and appearance.
