Lactic Acid is an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA), derived from milk, which is combined with Canadian Willow Herb (an anti-inflammatory botantical) to create a unique peel with minimal downtime. In combination these ingredients target the surface layer or the skin (epidermis), breaking down the “glue” that holds the skin cells together, enabling faster cellular turnover, while attracting water. L-Lactic acid is amazing for treating acne, hyperpigmentation and dehydration, without the irritation. Hello, fresh, bright and glowy skin! Fabulous introductory treatment, or pick-me-up pre-event.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF THE LACTOBOTANICAL PEEL?
Incidental. On rare occasions, you may find your skin slightly pink post peel, which will subside within a few hours.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
After a single treatment your skin will be notably smoother and brighter, however best results are seen from three to six treatments, two to four weeks apart.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY TREATMENT?
We start with a double cleanse of the face before applying the Lactobotanical Peel. The peel stays on the skin for five to ten minutes to allow the active ingredients to be absorbed. The peel is then soaked off and serums and a rich moisturiser are applied. All Medi-Facials include fruit enzyme exfoliation, an oxygen treatment and a tailored LED treatment. This stimulates collagen production and kills the bacteria (Propionibacterium) that live below the surface of the skin, causing acne. 60-minute treatment
WILL IT HURT?
You may feel a tingling or tightening sensation in the skin, but no pain.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Instant glowing skin! The Lactobotanical Peel results in a fresh, clean and bright complexion with no downtime.
IS THERE ANY PRE OR POST CARE?
There is no downtime post peel, which means you can apply make-up and continue with normal activity. Nothing is off limits!
We always recommend use of sunscreen to prevent damage to the skin. Ensure SPF 30 or above is applied and remember to re-apply throughout the day (every 2 hours).
All Medi-Facials include fruit enzyme exfoliation, an oxygen treatment,a metobolic peel, massage and a tailored LED treatment.
