Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels Available (SkinMedica® & ViPeel®)

We offer a wide variety of peels from SkinMedica and ViPeel in order to customize peels to our clients specific needs.  The words "chemical peel" could make those unfamiliar with the procedure's benefits anxious; however, chemical peels are really just a form of exfoliation, a minimally-invasive and essential component of facial rejuvenation. Chemical peels optimize skin health and are beneficial for all skin types, skin colors and ages.

SkinMedica Peels (Illuminize, Vitalize & Rejuvenize)

SkinMedica® Peels address the visible skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure, such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture. Peels also address skin tone unevenness that can be caused by acne scarring or pigmentary changes. SkinMedica® offers a range of different strength chemical peels that licensed skincare professionals can select to provide the optimum treatment for their patients.

Illuminize Peel®

Illuminize Peel®, the gentlest SkinMedica® Peel is appropriate for first-time, chemical-peel patients, patients with mild skin imperfections or patients that are looking for brighter, more radiant skin with no downtime. Illuminize Peel® is appropriate for all skin types. With Illuminize Peel® patients should not expect to see visible peeling dur to superficial nature of this peel. There is no expected downtime with Illuminize Peel®. Most patients leave the office looking healthy and fresh. Mild redness or discoloration may occur and can be covered with makeup. For maximum results, the Illuminize Peel® can be received every two weeks until desired results are achieved. Results are cumulative and optimal benefits are seen with a series of three or more peels.

Vitalize Peel®

Achieve visible improvement after one treatment .....with optimal results after a series of treatments!  Vitalize Peel® is appropriate for patients with mild-to-moderate skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure, such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture. Vitalize Peel® treatments also address skin unevenness that can be caused by acne scarring or other pigmentary changes. Vitalize Peel® is appropriate for all skin types. Vitalize Peel® can leave yellowish tinge on the skin which is expected to last no longer than 2-3 hours. Mild to moderate redness is expected after any type of chemical peel procedure. The extent of redness varies from patient to patient. The face may appear redder than usual for some time after the treatment and completely resolves after the peeling is complete. After the Vitalize Peel®, patients will notice an improvement in the appearance of overall skin condition, diminishment in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smoothness of skin texture, more even skin color, and improved skin clarity.

Rejuvenize Peel™

Rejuvenize Peel can be used on Fitzpatrick Skin Types V - VI after the patient has established tolerability to Vitalize Peel or with physician consent.  Rejuvenize Peel™ is appropriate for patients with moderate to severe skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure, such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture. Rejuvenize Peel™ also address skin unevenness that can be caused by acne scarring or pigmentary changes. Rejuvenize Peel™ can be performed on patients with dark skin. However, patients with deeply pigmented skin color should receive Vitalize Peel® first, and after they establish tolerability to Vitalize Peel®, they can receive Rejuvenize Peel™. The degree of peeling may vary depending on the individual’s skin condition and degree of the damage. Peeling can range from mild flaking to peeling in sheets. Regardless of the amount of peeling, the skin is still sloughing off at an accelerated rate, which will result in the following benefits: improvement in the appearance of skin tone and texture, smoothness of fine lines and wrinkles.
