About The Peels

Administered by a skin care professional, our full range of superficial peels by SkinMedica® can help your complexion appear more uniform and renewed—diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and melasma. A chemical peel exfoliates you skin to improve texture and tone, resulting in clearer, brighter, smoother skin.

Chemical peels are non-surgical, non-toxic, and can be combined with other effective facial rejuvenation treatments. Brown spots (hyperpigmentation and melasma) become less visible, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines reduced, and acne scars and other skin problems can be dramatically improved.

Since every person’s skin is different, we offer three different chemical peels to match your particular skin type and and personal goals. Our Registered Nurse Practitioners will consult with you to determine the best chemical peel.

SkinMedica® Peels address the visible skin imperfections that result from photodamaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentary irregularities, acne-prone skin and mild acne scarring. SkinMedica® offers a range of different strength chemical peels allowing physicians and aestheticians to select the optimum treatment option for every patient.

Aging of the skin is a chronic natural phenomenon. A single peel can reduce some of the clinical and histological signs of aging but once the skin has healed from the peel, the aging process starts again. Therefore, a daily program of specifically designed products that reduce the signs of aging, as well as a series of peels are necessary to maintain long-term improvement.

Multiple treatments may be required to achieve desired results. Illuminize Peel® can be repeated every 2 weeks, Vitalize Peel® every 3-4 weeks and Rejuvenize Peel™ every 4-6 weeks. There is no limit to the number of peels a person can receive as long as improvement continues. The effect is cumulative with time and enhanced with SkinMedica® daily regimen products.

The classification known as the Fitzpatrick skin type (or phototype) depends on the amount of melanin pigment in the skin. This is determined by constitutional color (white, brown or black skin) and the result of exposure to ultraviolet radiation (tanning). Pale or white skin burns easily and tans slowly and poorly: it needs more protection against sun exposure. Darker skin burns less and tans more easily. It is also more prone to develop postinflammatory pigmentation after injury (brown marks).
