Our chemical peels help fight the effects of time, sun damage, and environmental assaults. This powerful yet non-damaging approach can take years off of aging skin. For mild to moderate skin imperfections, Vitalize Peel will smooth the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and roughness.
Noticeable results are seen after just one peel, including less acne, less acne scarring, less brown spots and less sun damage. Two days after this peel is applied, the skin starts to shed from the chin up to the forehead for 2 to 7 days. If you want to peel over the weekend, schedule a peel on Wednesday.
For those who do not want downtime, we also offer the Illuminze peel where you do not peel but just get glowing skin. A series of peels will give you the best results.
How do chemical peels work?
The acids in the peel work to dissolve the top layers of the skin. This process creates a controlled wound, which prompts a regenerative response in the treated skin.
What to expect during your chemical peel treatment?
You face will be wash and prep for the peel. Your skin will be cleansed and “degreased” before the peel is actually applied. This means that all surface oils and debris are removed so that the peel can penetrate properly. The peel will then be applied.
What can I expect immediately after the peel and up to 24 hours afterwards?
- Skin may feel tight and more red than usual
- Skin may feel tacky and have a yellow to orange tinge. This is temporary and will fade in a few hours.
- Patients should wait until bedtime before washing the face.
- Patients should avoid strenuous exercise starting the day of the procedure and while the skin is peeling.
What can I expect in the first week after the peel?
- Skin may be tight until it starts to peel
- Peeling will generally start between 48-72 hours after the procedure, and can last 2-7 days. DO NOT PICK OR PULL THE SKIN. Allow skin to peel at its own pace.
If you want to peel over the weekend, schedule a peel on Wednesday.
