The SkinMedica® Illuminize Peel® helps provide vibrant, radiant looking skin with minimal downtime. Appropriate for treating mild skin imperfections, this peel brightens the overall appearance of skin and helps to create a more uniform complexion. After just one peel, skin will appear more radiant. Since this peel is superficial, patients should not expect to experience peeling after treatment and there is no expected downtime.
The SkinMedica® Rejuvenize Peel™ smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for patients with moderate to severe skin imperfections. Noticeable improvement can be seen after just one peel with more dramatic results that will appear after three to six peels. Patients should expect to peel after this treatment, which 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 a smoother tone and texture and reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The Rejuvenize Peel™ can also address skin unevenness that can be caused by acne scarring or pigmentary changes.
The SkinMedica® Vitalize Peel® will noticeably smooth the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and roughness after just one peel, with more compelling results appearing after three to six peels. This peel is most 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. This type of peel can leave a yellowish tinge on the skin which normally lasts no longer than two to three hours.
Which SkinMedica® Peel is Right for Me?
Chemical peels should only be administered under the care of a board-certified medical aesthetician who has not only met industry standards, but one who goes the extra mile to promote patient comfort and safety. At Schaffer Plastic Surgery, your chemical peel will be administered by our own board-certified medical aesthetician, Chelsea Craig. She has been extensively trained on SkinMedica® products and peels and can make the best recommendations for you based on your unique skin type and goals. In addition to performing chemical peels, Chelsea also performs excellent adjunct treatments such as SkinPen® and Hydrafacials.
Keep in mind that chemical peels can be personalized based on your unique situation. For example, if you are preparing for an important event and do not want to experience skin flaking or peeling after your treatment, a chemical peel can still be the best option to achieve a beautiful, healthy glow. On the contrary, if you are able to experience some downtime, a more aggressive chemical peel can be a smart way to achieve a smoother complexion with fewer fine lines, wrinkles and texture irregularities.
If you are interested in learning more about which SkinMedica® chemical peel is right for you, schedule a consultation today with our board-certified medical aesthetician, Chelsea. At your appointment, she will discuss with you the variances in the SkinMedica® Illuminize Peel®, Rejuvenize Peel™ and Vitalize Peel® to help you make the best decision for your unique goals.
