Is a Vitalize Peel® Right For Me?
If you feel self-conscious as a result of mild-to-moderate skin imperfections, including fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, or acne scars, a Vitalize Peel® may be right for you. During your consultation, one of our registered nurses will conduct a skin assessment and evaluate your needs and goals to determine which peel is best suited for you.
How is a Vitalize Peel® Applied?
The Vitalize Peel® is a light chemical peel that takes around 20 minutes to apply. First, the skin is cleansed followed by the application of the peel itself, using a soft brush or applicator. A warm, tingling sensation may be experienced as the solution is applied.
What Can I Expect After a Vitalize Peel®?
A moderate amount of redness is to be expected following a Vitalize Peel®. In addition, some peeling may be experienced for a few post-treatment. A Vitalize Peel® does not require recovery time so you are able to return to your normal daily activities immediately following the procedure. You will begin to notice a visible improvement in tone and texture shortly after your first peel. However, a series of Vitalize Peel® treatments is recommended for optimal results. You will need to make sure to apply a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher after each peel in order to protect your skin from sun exposure, as it will be extra sensitive.
What is the Illuminize Peel®?
The Illuminize Peel® is designed for mild skin imperfections and helps provide vibrant, radiant looking skin with minimal downtime after just one peel.
Who is the ideal candidate for an Illuminize Peel®?
The gentlest SkinMedica® Peel, the Illuminize Peel® is appropriate for first-time, chemical-peel patients, patients with mild skin imperfections or patients that are looking for brighter, more radiant skin with no downtime.
Can the Illuminize Peel® be performed on patients with dark skin?
Yes, the Illuminize Peel® is appropriate for all skin types.

Is the Illuminize Peel® right for pregnant or lactating women?
No, SkinMedica® peels should not be given to women who are pregnant or lactating.
What is the Rejuvenize Peel®?
The Rejuvenize Peel®is appropriate for moderate to severe skin imperfections to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and roughness. Patients should see noticeable improvement after just one peel and compelling results after three to six peels.
Can Rejuvenize Peel® be performed on patients with dark skin?
Yes, the Rejuvenize Peel® may be performed on patients with dark skin. However, patients with deeply pigmented skin color should receive Vitalize Peel® initially, and after they establish tolerability to Vitalize Peel®, they can receive Rejuvenize Peel®.
What can I expect during the Rejuvenize Peel® procedure?
Expect the complete treatment to last 45 minutes. This may include time for questions and the ability to discuss your post-peel care. The time for the actual application is about 20 minutes. Normal and expected reactions include tingling or burning sensations. A handheld fan may be used to minimize discomfort, which usually only lasts for a few minutes.
