1 My Lactic Acid Experience on Thu Jun 10, 2010 2:02 am

First topic message reminder :

Ok. I received my lactic acid about a week ago from lotioncrafters. It came in 2 days!! Quick shipping! Anyway, I'm still watining for my mequinol and Retin A.
I applied the lactic acid last night. My skin is really resistant so I did a test with pure lactic acid and I didn't feel a thing. So, I put it on my face and neck with a wet towel. 88%. It tingled very little. It seemed a bit oily and when it dried, it felt kind of rubbery. The next day the right side of my face started peeling alot. No peeling on the left. But I had already significantly lightened from Makari and Nadinola, I didn't think I would see a big difference, but it is at least a full shade lighter where my skin peeled. The new skin had a supple glow to it. Oh, I forgot to add that I applied more makari/nadinola about 5 hours later. (after the LA dried).
So far so good. I reapplied to the the left side of my face that hasn't peeled. I look two colors. lol [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] Some of it got on the area that had already peeled and I had to immediately get it off of that area b/c it burned like [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] . So don't apply this to any peeled areas or open.
I plan to start on my body tomorrow. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

so the lactic acid peel also helps to remove blemishes, pimples, and hyperpigmented skin??

PorcelainSkin,


different areas of your body may react in varying ways to the peel. For example you may find that your knees can tolerate the peel for much longer than say the back of them or the back of your neck. The skin on your face tends to be more sensitive than your body and so you may find that you do not want to leave the peel on for too long, especially as you have now introduced RA into your regime. I would say leave it on your face initally for only a couple of minutes, provided there is no intense burning. AND I would also suggest that you peform a small patch test on somewhere like the underside of your chin to get an idea of how your face will react.

hey guys, just double checking, if i apply the lactic peel, leave it on for a few mins, i can remove it with cool water right? is that fine too? or do i have to mix the water with baking soda as a neutralizing solution? i did the first full face and body peel today and after, just rinsed it off with some cotton wipes dipped in cool water, is that fine??

I've never done a peel so I can't recomend anything aside from not using it on your face for awhile and use eucerin cream or something like that. I remember Maharni told you ,repeatedly, to not leave it for more then a few seconds, especially on the face where the skin is the thinnest. I hope if you still use this peel you won't leave it on as long next time.



DO NOT LEAVE IT ON FOR 3 MINUTES OR MORE.

it has been my expiernce that any peel with a high percentage of lactic acid can do more harm than good...the exfoliator from dr. thienna was 25% lactic acid...I think thats the only one of her products that actually made a difference in the apperance of my skin!

lactic acid peels with 40% and 70% lactic acid can really irritate the skin espcially now that you're using retin A....dont do any scrubs or any exfoliation since I've been using retin A...Tretinoin does enough exfoliation.

No I think you burned your skin and I would go to a doctor as I really don't know what to do aside from maybe aloe vera or eucerin.

To clarify to all. PLEASE make sure that any peel solution is thoroughly and gently removed post treatment. The neutralising solution is to be used especially around the face and neck area, although I know that some have been able to use just plain cool water in a shower to remove the acid from the body and this has also been recommended by some companies. Cotton pads dipped in water is not enough to remove the peel solution.


Any time the skin has any sort of intense burning then the acid should be removed immediately. It is better to keep the acid on the skin for less time than just a little longer than is really needed. Patch tests MUST be carried out to check skin sensitivity. And the use of any retinoids or AHA products should be stopped for at least 3 days before and after the peeling treatment. MOst importantly, listen to your skin and don't overdo it.

Hey guys, just a little update. My skin has completely healed from the first incident where i had burned my skin. in fact, it healed much faster than i thought and i was able to do another peel on sunday. there is no evidence at all on my face that i burned so its all good. i left the peel on for a few secs on sunday after it started stinging and use the baking soda as a neutraliser. its wednesday today and have not seen any peeling yet. i also used the lactic on my arms and there is some peeling close to my arm pits. i wish i would peel faster though.. i might keep the peel on for longer on my arms this coming sunday..
