Lactic acid peels need to be neutralised, wound care needed.
See the video below for an explanation of how to use Lactic acid peels, 40% is a good strength and it does need to be throughly neutralised. See how its done. For now, see a Specialist for wound care- namely to help your skin heal, prevent infection and post peeling darkening of the area. Correct after care can reduce or prevent permanent scaring. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
