Chemical Peels

Chemical Skin Peels

Vitalize Peel®
Vitalize Peel® is a powerful yet non-damaging chemical peel that helps fight the effects of time, sun damage, and environmental assaults. This peel can take years off aging skin in just minutes. Vitalize Peel® is the only superficial peel suitable for all skin tones and complexions. This special formulation includes a unique blend of peeling agents: alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, resorcinol, and retinoic acid (obtained by physicians only). While results are predictable and noticeable after just one peel, dramatic results are seen after a series of peels. This is a highly effective rejuvenation procedure with no downtime.

How does Vitalize Peel® work?
Vitalize peel® uses a unique blend of safe but effective acids to cause chemical exfoliation of the epidermis, or outer layer of the skin. Skin regeneration following this chemical peel results in a fresh, organized, healthy epidermis. The result is a smoother and more even complexion and an improvement in pigment changes.

What is Vitalize Peel® used for?
The Vitalize Peel® improves the skin’s overall appearance, decreasing fine line wrinkles and restoring even skin tones. Vitalize Peel® evens out acne scarring and is particularly effective in combination with other treatments. Vitalize Peel® is effective for pigment changes caused by acne scarring, photodamage (sun damage), “age spots”, freckles, melasma (from hormone changes), and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Vitalize Peel® tightens pores, improves skin texture, and smoothes ruddy complexions.

Illuminize Peel®
The Illuminize Peel® is ideal for first-time chemical peel patients or patients looking for a gentle, very superficial peel. With little or no visible peeling, patients achieve enhancement of skin appearance with very minimal downtime and discomfort. The Illuminize Peel is formulated to increase skin glow and radiance, while improving clarity, color and skin texture. This non-invasive, very superficial peel utilizes a novel approach to chemical peeling with a newer generation of alpha hydroxyl acids (Mandelic Acid and Malic Acid) in combination with Phytic Acid and commonly used peeling agents (Salicylic Acid and Resorcinol) to maximize skin rejuvenating effects with low irritation. The Illuminize Peel® may be used on all skin types.
