While laser treatments are frequently utilized to resurface and retexturize the skin, chemical peels provide another proven method of exfoliation and regeneration. The Vitalize Peel™ causes the skin to slough off at an accelerated rate, promoting fresh, new, healthy cells to rise to the surface. Damaged skin peels away to reveal a smoother texture, more even tone, and increased luminosity. Efficacy is further enhanced when this peel is used in conjunction with SkinMedica® products and the other fine medical grade skincare products offered at Skin Spectrum.
HOW DOES THE VITALIZE PEEL™ WORK?
To treat mild to moderate skin conditions, salicylic and lactic acids are combined with resorcinol and panthenol in a solution that causes the skin’s top layer to peel away. Upon shedding of the epidermis and uppermost section of the underlying dermal layers, new skin cells rise to the surface, making the skin appear smooth and luminous.
This peel diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, evens tone and texture, and improves clarity for skin that looks healthy and radiant. To achieve the best possible outcome, we recommend using the Vitalize Peel in conjunction with fillers, neuromodulators, lasers, and a customized skincare product regimen.
WHAT CONDITIONS DOES THIS PEEL TREAT?
The Vitalize Peel, which is suitable for all skin types, addresses issues related to aging and sun exposure, including:
- – Pigmentation from sun damage, such as brown spots
- – Melasma
- – Rough skin texture
- – Uneven or dull skin tone
- – Fine lines and wrinkles
- – Acne scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
To achieve ideal results and for the skin’s safety, our providers recommend prepping the skin for four weeks prior to treatment. Adherence to the proper skincare regimen before the procedure can enhance effectiveness and protect the skin from unintended damage.
The Vitalize Peel is well tolerated by most patients. Generally, any tingling, stinging or burning sensations are easily endured and usually subside within a few minutes. There is no significant downtime associated with this peel, aside from a yellowish tinge to the skin for two to three hours post application and mild redness that may persist for the duration of the peeling process, which is typically very mild. You should avoid sun exposure for one to two weeks following the Vitalize Peel.
Patients typically notice improvement after one peel, but multiple treatments frequently yield the most compelling results. The Vitalize Peel may be administered every three to four weeks, and the number of treatments we suggest depends on the condition of your skin and the reason for treatment.
