Lactic acid duration???

Finally! i received my lactic acid 40% peel kit today for my red/brown marks from previous acne.

How many minutes are you suppose to leave the lactic acid on your face for? Do you put it on every night before you go to bed and shall i put it on once a week? And if my face shows no improvement after a week, shall i put it on twice a week etc...?

Thanks!

555 - it comes with instructions. It's NOT a product you LEAVE ON!!! It's a PEEL that you leave on for two or three minutes and then rinse off and you only do them about once or twice a week.

does it fade the colour of the skin?

As my forehead has lots of the little brown marks, spot treatment would be impossible. So i would hate for my forehead to whiten more than the rest of my face.

Thanks Tracey

and does anyone know when the results will show? Or does it vary with different skin types? Also IF there are no results for quite some time, when should you know lactic acid is not working?

can you use this at night then go out the next day or does it peel your face (or make it all read/burn) and cause downtime?

Lactic peels are like slow exfoliation - it has no down time if you use per the instructions but it removes surface dryness, cleans out pores, evens out skin tone etc.. it's not an overnight miracle. Give it at least 4-8 weeks of weekly peels and you will find discolouration fading.
