Lactic Acid is a non-irritating rapid exfoliator.
If you have used our 40% Lactic Acid Peel successfully,
this is your next step in the peeling process.
 
(Instructions are listed above, under corresponding tab.)
 
Because Lactic Acid is a naturally occurring human metabolite, there is much less chance of allergic reaction using this type of acid peel. If you are looking for a peel with a good acidic value and with virtually no irritation, then this product is for you.

Benefits:

  • Loosens and removes the surface debris on the skin.
  • Softens comedomes.
  • Deep cleans pores.
  • Softens fine lines.
  • Extremely effective at stimulating natural collagen production
    for a fresh, moistened look.  Great for mature skin.
  • This particular formulation contains licorice extract, an extremely effective botanical skin-lightening additive.
  • Is a non-irritating acid treatment and great for sensitive skin.
  • No "down time", no noticeable flaking of the skin, just a sloughing-off of the dried, glued together
    sebum and surface skin debris
Caution:

Persons with milk allergies, should not use Lactic Acid products.

Savings:
  • Lactic acid is very expensive and typically costs about $75-$125 for one salon treatment in most parts of the country.   
  • Take advantage of the huge savings you'll get with our kits.

Acne Clients:

You are beginning your treatments with pores that are congested/clogged with embedded dirt, dead skin cells and sebum.  As you begin your treatments the sebum just under the surface will likely emerge as blemishes.  This is normal.  Breakouts may seem more pronounced since the acid is cleaning the pores more quickly than with regular cleansing products.  Typically within the first 3 weeks, the skin begins to show improved clarity with very few breakouts.  Please try to be patient during this time.  Deep cleansing and exfoliation is a "process" which takes some time to work. 

Extremely oily skin types, consider using our beta serum as your first-step before doing your peel to "cut through" the oil. While it is not a necessity, it will help extremely oily skin clients to realize better results with any of our acid peels.  And, you can use it between peels to help control oil.
Beta Hydroxy Serum

General Cautions:
 
  • Never use manual exfoliators nor scrubbing brushes within 24 hours of using a peel.
  • Stop Retin A, benzoyl peroxides, acne products and any other drying agents 24 hours before and after using an alpha hydroxy or beta hydroxy peel.
  • If you are allergic to aspirin products, never use a salicylic acid nor beta hydroxy peel.
  • Never apply a peel without doing a patch-test first and waiting 48 hours for results.
  • Never apply a chemical peel to inflamed skin.
  • Always read product directions in their entirety and don't take shortcuts.
  • Use our BellEvolve Advanced Repair Cream for skin that has been chemically over processed.  It contains advanced healing agents that will quickly get your skin back to normal.
  • When in doubt about a caution, please write or call us for more information.

    FDA December 2, 2002 Posting - Sun Sensitivity
    Clients need to be aware that by using glycolic acid and other peeling products, your skin will be more photo-sensitive than normal.  It is recommended that you use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15, preferably SPF 30 or higher, after using skin peel products.  The FDA recommends using an SPF for one week post-peel.

    Noticeable Improvement
    I have used Glycolic Acid before, but changed recently to Lactic Acid because of your information stating that Lactic Acid seems to be more effective in reducing hyper-pigmentation. I agree. There is a noticeable reduction in dark, sun damaged areas.

    Excellent results
    I am in my mid-50s and I have oily skin with enlarged pores and some hyperpigmentation. I tend to have a rougher texture to my skin due to sun damage. I went straight to the 55% rather than trying out the 40%. It was a little harsh but the results were worth it. I put it on my face, jaw, and neck and left it on for around 6-7 minutes. I was very pink when I washed it off. My skin looked rough and rashy for the next few days, and my jaw and neck itched. I used some cortisone cream to help with the itchiness. My oily areas (nose, forehead, and cheeks) flaked and were blotchy. It was not a good look for the first few days, but by day 4 I was looking smoother. The morning of day 5 I woke up and felt my skin - it was smooth. The rashy bumpy texture had disappeared. I got up and washed my face, and it was radiant. The pores were much smaller, the texture was smoother, and the overall tone was even. It looked like 10 years had dropped off my face. I was shocked and so happy. I plan on using this every 3 to 4 weeks and next time I will leave it on my jaw and neck for maybe 3 minutes, and keep it to 6-7 minutes for my oilier areas. Thank you for such an excellent product!

    Great Results!!
    I am a satisfied customer!! I have been ordering from MUAC for about a year now. Their products are excellent and their customer service is great. I recently ordered the 55% Lactic Acid peel and I am very satisfied with the results. My wrinkles are less noticeable, my neck skin is tighter, my pores have shrunk to almost invisible and my skin is brighter. Big Thank You MUAC!!

    Great Peel - Brighter Skin
    The first time I used this peel - I washed it off and could not believe what I saw in the mirror (or didn't see). I couldn't see my pores on my nose! I thought I needed to put my glasses on to "find" them but they seemed to disappear. Anyone with pore issues and blackheads knows they usually don't stay gone for long. I think it's impt to use these peels (this one and the mandelic are helping with pores and blackheads) regularly to really clean out and keep the skin clear. My only issue with this peel is that my skin will sometimes get a light colored bump under the skin (sort of like a non formed zit - flat) and I think my skin is trying to purge. I think this can happen with any peel as it is removing impurities. If I have that issue - I try to use salicylic acid (just a OTC face wash with it) to help prevent breakouts and it does help. Overall I have had great results. If you have easily inflamed skin - be careful. More doesn't mean better. I decided not to wait a week before using this for the 2nd time - and I really went over the cheek area to try to rid myself of those pores too. Rubbing it into my cheeks caused the pores to become irritated and larger for a few days. Please wait the week before doing another peel - the peels here are amazing and affordable. Just let your skin breathe and heal!

    This peel definitely works, but WOW! You really need to work up to it. I started with the 25% Mandelic peel and then ordered the 40% lactic acid. Those were very "easy" on the face. I am on week 4 of the 55% lactic acid peel and only now am I able to tolerate it without watching the clock. It has a pretty intense burning sensation...no pain, no gain right?!?! :) But being 51 years old, I can say that my fine lines and wrinkles are much less noticeable and my skin tone and color is much more even. I do not have the blotchiness like I used to and my face looks much more smooth. My skin very lightly peels/flakes on day 2-4 post peel. It is very light flaking and no down time. Would I recommend it? Absolutely! But please consider working up to this strength. I would also highly recommend the Post Peel Neutralizing Solution. This is a Godsend. I always follow up with the Bell Evolve Advanced Repair cream. Another Godsend! And then post peel I use these daily: Hyaluronic Serum (all time fav), Argirelox Serum around crows feet and other fine wrinkles and finally the AAA Cream. I LOVE these products and would not be without them.

    Acne
    This stings a bit (then is itchy while it's on) I'm in my mid-40's and have developed 'cystic' (hormone induced) acne that comes once a month and leaves VERY VISIBLE scars. This lactic is the ONLY thing that has stopped those outbreaks. I use it 2 x's a week and I have not had a breakout since I started using. I had my first Lactic peel in a med spa that cost me $175... this small bottle will last you a long time making it's 'high price' so small in comparison. I bought the 40% for my 16 year old son. When he uses it (he is 16 I mentioned) within 2 weeks his skin is 90% clear. He want's Acutane, but when this works so amazingly... NO WAY will I put him on Acutane. I am SOLD on this for me (and my son). The day after I do the peel there are small areas where I can see a slight 'peeling' but never enough for me to feel I can't go in public. AWESOME product.

    Glowing Skin
    I have been using this product religiously since I first purchased it. I mainly bought it for my uneven skin tone due to over exposure to the sun. I am not one of those who immidiatley saw result, I first saw it after 3d use, and oh boy, now im obsessed with this product. I have never had this glowing skin. My skin is still a little uneven, so I just ordered the tca peel. Will keep u guys posted on that. But deff try this product out if you are new to chemical peels and want the kk glow ! Regards

    I have used several of the peels over years and have decided that the best for my age is the 55% lactic peel. The use of the other peels have been sporadic but recently I have been using this lactic peel on a more consistent basis which makes the longer lasting results more effective. This lactic peel works very well. The benefits are: minimal downtime (esp. when used consistently), skin upkept from dead, drying layers, a nice fresh glow and dewiness.

    Good Purchase
    I began using this 2x a week, but that was a mistake. I recommend starting out only one day a week and working your way up to 2. Nothing too bad happened, but my skin began getting raw and a painful, and I began to actually peel (like with TCA but faster). I wash my face with MUAC's green tea cleanser or CeraVe's foaming cleanser. After it's dry I use either the included MUAC PH Prep Solution or witch hazel. I use a round cotton pad. After that dries, I use a round cotton pad to swipe the lactic acid all over my face, beginning with my cheeks because they have the most problem areas, then my forehead, nose, upper lip, and chin. I also do get this fairly close under my eyes because I have genetic dark circles there that I want to smooth out a little bit. I've never had a problem with this acid stinging my eyes or getting anything in my eyes during the process. I begin my timer just as I start to put the acid on my face and when it hits 7 minutes I neutralize the acid either with MUAC's Neutralizing Solution or with baking soda mixed into water (I keep baking soda in my bathroom). After that I wash my face with either the Green Tea Cleanser or the CeraVe cleanser and pat dry. I really recommend neutralizing this peel even though it doesn't state that you have to and that you can wash it off and it will be fine. The one time I tried simply washing it off without neutralizing it, my skin continued burning all night and it was a little difficult to get to sleep. I think it may have been because the water and cleanser combo doesn't fully get this off your skin and it continues working. The day after I use this peel my skin breaks out with a few blemishes here and there. Mostly they are ones that I notice are lurking beneath the surface of my skin. This brings them up to the surface. My skin will also feel a little rough/dry in some places on my skin sometimes during the day after I use this. That is from flaky patches of skin coming off. You MUST wear a strong SPF on your skin when using this, otherwise the new skin coming through will become sun damaged and discolored very quickly.The second day is when I notice the most results. My skin glows, and is very soft. The redness in my skin is diminished.

    Love It
    I've never had a lactic acid peel before, I do glycolic peels very often so I wanted to try something different. I love how the lactic peel makes my skin feel soft and smooth. I have really bad sun damage on my face and the lactic peel has helped to lighten the brown spots. I'm going to try alternating between the glycolic and the lactic peels for a month and see what results I get.

    55% Lactic Acid
    This is the 1st time I bought this product from MUAC. When it is applied on the face, I feel that there is some stinging but no burning feeling. I wash it off only when it has dried up on my skin after the first layer application. It makes my pores very clean and clear. It doesn't really make a big difference on my freckles though it has faded a little. I will try the Retinol range after I have finished this product.

    Rapid results!
    I normally do not write reviews, but I had to share this one. I discovered MUAC products last year and I am so thankful I did. I am 23, Indian, and I've had problematic skin since I was in middle school. I tried so hard to get rid of my acne, but in doing so I made it 100x worse. My skin's texture was terrible, I had developed acne scars and literally always wore make up. Even in the house because of how it looked. I first used the TCA peel and got amazing results. My skin's texture was improved and many of the marks were gone. I've done a TCA peel twice and my skin has improved, but I was not maintaining it. This peel I just used on Saturday 3/4/17 and was surprised at the reaction it had on my skin. It actually stung more than the TCA peel. I left it on for 7 min and on my upper cheek area, it turned red and hurt so I was concerned as this was supposed to be a non irritant peel. The next day the skin on my cheek looked like I had gotten burned and so I became even more concerned. As the day went on, it began hardening and I knew it would peel. It is now 3/8 and my skin looks brighter and some scars have dissapeared! I am going to use this weekly and I know my skin will thank me. Thank you MUAC!

    Its Working
    I just started using this last week,, so far I have used it three times. Originally I purchased it for the remaining sun damage on the middle of my chest, but I tried it on my face and neck also and my forearms. Slowly but surely the sun damage and some melasma is fading away. I never used lactic acid peels before, but due to the fact that the TCA peels give me discoloration on my face (not any where else, just on my face), I am trying this and yay no discoloration, it may take longer to get results, but I don't need any more discolorations on my face than I already have.

    This is a simple process that I do once or twice a week. After the acid processes, I rinse my face, then wipe it with a white washcloth. It is invariably "dirty" looking, which tells me the dead skin cells are sloughing off. My skin looks brighter and more even toned.

    Complexion Decongestant
    I'm a blond haired blue-eyed outdoor lover. Sadly my skin (fair & sensitive) has taken a beating over my many decades of summers at the beach and on the golf course. I tried the Lactic acid hoping it would be mild enough to use regularly in my fight against large pores, occasional breakouts, rough patches and lack-luster tone. I love it! I use TCA peels over the winter months and there is downtime with those. There is zero downtime with the lactic acid peel. I'm using the 55% once every 10 days and it's easy and so effective! It stings while it's on (like a 3-4 on a scale of 1-10; annoying but not "painful") and stops stinging the moment I rinse it off. I sometimes see a tiny bit of peeling skin the next day, but usually the only side effect I notice is the complete disappearance of the pores on and around my nose, and clear glowing skin. An enlarged pore that I've had for over 20 years under one eye has vanished completely. It's summer again and I'm spending my days under layers of heavy SPF and my pores aren't congested, my skin is clear, my red dry patchy areas are gone and I think that the brown area on both of my temples is getting lighter.

    Not for me
    This was the only peel I've used that I actually hated. I've used about 4 now with varying results but this one absolutely did not work for me. The smell was awful but it made me break out horribly. I got quite red and discolored even days later. My skin is flaky and a week later it's still breaking out everywhere. This wasn't a purge type breakout. My pores also got really big which I've not seen happen before. I feel like I set my skin back to before I started my peels. It looks terrible. This was supposed to be my in between peel that was suggested by the rep. It wasn't one I would have chosen as I tried lactic acid before and had a similar reaction.
