I feel like I recently read something about lactic acid re-activatinig with water for hours after a peel has been performed.

I think I heard it on the radio or on a webinar or maybe I read it here.

Does anyone know if this is true or where I might have gotten this info?

I did a search here but it turns out we talk about LA a lot! Smile

I have recently moved to a new spa and started some chemical peel training. We did a lactic acid peel and all I could think about was don't use water! But I could also be very wrong.

I have been using lactic acid peels for years and I have never had it reactivate. Once you wash it off completely with water it will be done.

IMO that is not *necessarily* a reason not to use water, you could see it as a reason to be conservative with new clients. You cannot police what your clients use within the next 72 hours, they are bound to use a water-based cleanser or moisturiser, or take a shower. I have very sensitive skin, always neutralise lactic acid with water and never had stinging at any time after rinsing.

With hindsight I do believe I have had reactivation with my last lactic peel when I pushed the boundaries percentage wise. I would note that my sensitive skin hates anything alkaline - even very dilute bicarb which makes my nose peel revealing new comedones - and I know many others find the same. For that reason I would prefer to use a lower percentage, leave a lactic acid reservoir in my skin (LA is endogenous to our skin anyway). This means LA can continue to keep my skin hydrated and help maintain the protective acid mantle while my skin regenerates.

Hope another perspective helps you! IMO you being aware of this issue is the key so you can explain to this phenomenon to your clients. That sort of knowledge would reassure me that I had found a great aesthetician. Very Happy
