Your skin needs regular exfoliation. Without it, you’ll never experience youthful skin or that envy-worthy glow that radiates vibrancy and youth. We know just how important chemical exfoliation is, which is why we offer SkinMedica Peels. These chemical peels come in various strengths and are designed to improve the complexions of patients with all different skin types.
What Are SkinMedica Peels?
SkinMedica is a professional-grade skincare line that’s changing complexions everywhere thanks to its high-quality, skin-perfecting ingredients. This collection of chemical peels was designed by the makers of some of your favorite beauty products and anti-aging injectables, including SkinMedica skin care, Botox, and Juvederm.
For that reason alone, you can trust that SkinMedica Peels will change your complexion and improve your most problematic skin conditions, especially when scheduled regularly. These peels are versatile and come in varying strengths. The peels are gentle enough to work on sensitive skin yet strong enough for those who need a more aggressive form of exfoliation.
The Three Different Peels
There are three different SkinMedica Peels: The Illuminize Peel, the Rejuvenize Peel, and the Vitalize Peel. SkinMedica designed each of these peels to address specific skin concerns. At an initial consultation, one of our skincare experts can help determine which of these peels is right for you. Once we evaluate your skin and better understand the skin imperfections you want to treat, we can design the perfect treatment plan for you.
The Illuminize Peel
The Illuminize Peel is a good choice for those who suffer from milder skin imperfections. This peel contains a combination of acids designed to brighten the skin, create a more even skin tone by improving the skin’s uniformity, and deliver that healthy, radiant glow. This peel is a good option for those who have never experienced a chemical peel before and want to start out slow yet still receive all the benefits of an in-office exfoliating treatment.
Those who want to experience a chemical peel that improves skin imperfections and makes their skin look better post-treatment without any downtime make good candidates for this particular peel. Your esthetician will provide you with a list of skincare products to use after the Illuminize Peel to help enhance your results and protect your skin, including a cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for the Illuminize Peel are patients who want a light peel that delivers immediate improvements in the skin. The Illuminize Peel is a good peel for all different skin types and will deliver an immediate glow. Those who want to schedule regular peels, either bi-monthly or monthly, can safely schedule this peel and return to their normal activities without any downtime or peeling.
The Vitalize Peel
The Vitalize Peel is the most popular SkinMedica Peel. It can address mild to moderate skin concerns, including acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and the different forms of hyperpigmentation. This particular peel may result in very mild peeling post-treatment but requires very little downtime.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for the Vitalize Peel are patients with specific stubborn skin imperfections who need a stronger peel than the Illuminize Peel. They are willing to endure some peeling to achieve better skin. Those who suffer from an uneven skin tone, sun damage, poor skin texture, the signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, or hyperpigmentation make good candidates for this peel.
The Rejuvenize Peel
Patients with moderate to severe skin concerns and imperfections make good candidates for the Rejuvenize Peel. This peel is the strongest SkinMedica Peel and it can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and smooth rough patches of skin on the face. This peel is the strongest peel available.
Still, it will provide the necessary chemical exfoliation for skin that requires a stronger combination of ingredients for a noticeable improvement. You will notice visible results after just one peel. Those results will only continue to improve when you schedule a series of treatments as recommended by one of our estheticians.
Who Is a Candidate?
The best candidates for this particular peel are those with skin tones that range from light to medium. However, the Rejuvenize Peel can be applied to all different skin types, and our esthetician will determine if this peel is the right choice for your skin. Because this peel contains the highest concentration of ingredients, we must evaluate your skin in person to determine if it’s right for you.
How Does the Treatment Process Work?
The chemical peel treatment process begins with an initial consultation with one of our skincare experts. It’s important that we evaluate your skin pre-treatment to ensure that we choose the right peel with the right combination of ingredients to help you achieve your skincare and goals.
Then, we will design the right treatment plan for you. Our estheticians will provide you with a treatment plan that includes the recommended number of treatments and the frequency at which you should schedule these treatments to achieve your desired results.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
You will see improvements after just one SkinMedica Peel, but we typically recommend that patients schedule a series of peels, typically anywhere from three to six treatments, to reach their skincare goals. Each peel will build upon the results of the one before it, and you will watch your skin slowly transform over time. Consistency is key, so it’s important that you follow your treatment plan so that you can achieve beautiful skin as quickly as possible.
