SkinMedica Chemical Peels: Illuminize and Vitalize
SkinMedica offers different peels to treat different conditions. If you have sensitive skin, or this will be the first time you’re trying a treatment like this, we recommend the Illuminize Peel. This peel features elements that are gentle on your skin while still giving you a brighter and more even appearance.
If you need a more powerful treatment, we suggest trying the Vitalize Peel. It is one of the strongest cosmetic treatments we use and works well for treating sun-damaged skin. It will also diminish the look of minor scars while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of the SkinMedica Illuminize Peel
Illuminize includes malic and mandelic alpha-hydroxy acids to purify your skin, decrease irritation, and reduce inflammation. It also contains a mild phytic acid, resorcinol, and panthenol. Phytic acid repels free radicals which contribute to the aging of your skin. It also shrinks your pores and decreases blackheads. Resorcinol treats acne while panthenol encourages hydration, decreases itching, and reduces inflammation.
Benefits of the SkinMedica Vitalize Peel
Vitalize works by getting rid of old and damaged skin cells, leaving you with clear skin. The effects of one peel are often apparent for several months. However, if you have a few treatments, you’ll experience the best results. The Vitalize peel includes salicylic acid which decreases inflammation and clears clogged pores. Lactic acid is another important ingredient, and it keeps your skin feeling moisturized and supple.
What to Expect at Skin by Lovely
At Skin by Lovely, we cultivate a positive, warm environment and uphold high standards for treatment. Our specialists have a comprehensive knowledge of our products and how they can best serve you in regaining a more youthful, natural appearance. Our practices also house the latest in technology and amenities so you may relax as we provide the best care.
Before your treatment, you’ll have a personalized consultation with one of our providers. They will review your medical history and conduct an examination while also answering your concerns and discussing your desired goals. You’ll receive a detailed explanation about your procedure as you and your specialist develop a treatment plan designed to help you attain the youthful appearance you crave.
During your treatment, your provider will gently cleanse your skin prior to applying the peel. SkinMedica peels take little time to complete and are mild enough that anesthetics are unnecessary.
Downtime, Results, and Follow-up Appointments
Illuminize and Vitalize, as with our other peels, are gentle and applicable to most skin types, though they do cause peeling and flaking of the skin. You will need to make appropriate accommodations if you would prefer this portion of the treatment happened at home.
With Vitalize, you may need a few more days since the peeling process will be more noticeable and longer. The results should be apparent immediately since your skin will appear tighter and healthier, and results should last several months. To maintain your results, discuss a schedule of repeated treatments with our providers.
