Well, first things first…what exactly do peels do and who can benefit from them?

Professional chemical peels help to improve the skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure by accelerating skin exfoliation through chemical substances, resulting in renewed and healthier looking skin. They address issues such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, acne scarring, and pigment changes.

Three different peels…Which one is right for me?

  1. Skin MedicaVitalize Peel 

The Vitalize Peel is appropriate for mild-moderate skin imperfections. It’s also ok for any skin type. Containing retinol and salicylic/lactic acids, this peel can be done every 3-4 weeks and is the most gentle of the three types.

  1. Skin Medica Rejuvenize Peel 

The Rejuvenize Peel is ideal for moderate to severe skin imperfections. Precautions are taken with patients who have darker skin types. This peel contains retinol and salicylic/mandelic/malic/phytic acids. Multiple treatments spaced out every 4-6 weeks is preferred.

  1. The Perfect Derma Peel

The Perfect Peel is a medium depth peel that contains TCA, retinoic/salicylic/kojic acid, and glutathione (a powerful antioxidant which lightens and brightens the skin, slows down the aging process, and helps prevent wrinkles). This peel is safe for all skin types and includes 2 additional peel pads to use the day after the treatment (am/pm). This peel has the most “peeling” effect of the three types of peels, usually around day 3. Treatments should be spaced out every 6 weeks.

Before a chemical peel, it’s important to avoid any skin products containing retinol, salicylic/glycolic acids, or prescription topicals. With any peel, it’s normal to experience tingling/burning during the treatment, which only lasts a few minutes. Immediately after the peel, the skin may appear yellow for no more than 2-3 hours. Mild to moderate redness is expected and the extent varies from person to person. It usually resolves completely after the peeling is complete. Peeling may be as mild as flaking or as intense as peeling in sheets, depending on the individual and which peel is used.

Due to the increased acceleration of skin and cell turnover following a peel, results are expected to include a decrease in fine lines/wrinkles/large pores, smoothness of skin texture/collagen production, evening of skin tone, improved clarity of the skin, and improvement of acne conditions and acne scarring.

Noticeable results are expected after even one peel, with more dramatic results after 3-6 treatments.

It’s important to protect your new skin after the peel with an SPF 30 or higher and avoid sun exposure for one week post treatment.

Once the skin has stopped peeling, you can resume your normal skin care regimen. For the Vitalize and Rejuvenize peels, avoid any retin-A, salicylic/glycolic acids and Vitamin C during the peeling process. For the Perfect Peel, do not use these products for at least 3 weeks after the peel.
