lactic acid application

Recommended Posts

hi all, i purchased the 40% lactic acid peel a while ago from MUAC and used it a few times, but I have unfortunately recently lost the directions for application. on the MUAC site it lists:

Prep your skin with our pH prep solution (included).

Allow it to dry completely.

Apply Lactic Acid serum to skin for 3-7 minutes.

Rinse off with soap and water.

Rebalance with pH prep solution.

Dry skin completely.

Some pinkness of the skin may be noticeable post-peel or

a warm feeling to the skin. This is normal.

Use sunscreen or a makeup with SPF factor post-peel.

Recommended usage: once or twice a week.

Packaged in plastic flip-top bottles.

but for some reason, I thought the directions said something like to start at one minute and increase one minute each application, and I'd really rather not quadruple that time. Anyone with the 40% peel know how long to keep it on?

yeah. do as you stated in your last couple of lines. It should be safe. Or even better email the guys from whom you bought the acid.

That peel is extremely mild. When I apply it I don't even know it's there. I've left it on close to 15 minutes. I don't tell others to do this, however. Work your way up to 8 or 10 minutes, slowly.
