Could a Chemical Peel be right for you?
Written on May 24, 2013 at 11:57 am
Sun exposure, acne and just getting older can leave skin tone uneven, wrinkled, scarred and discolored. If you want your skin to look smoother and younger, a chemical peel may be a great option. Chemical peels remove damaged outer layers of skin on the face to smooth texture, reduce scarring, and remove blemishes to produce healthy, glowing skin. Davis Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics in Raleigh offer a variety of chemical peels ranging from mild to strong, thus providing each patient with results customized to their skin’s individual needs. To speak with a skincare expert, please call our office for a complimentary consultation at 919.785.1220.
Our SkinMedica peels offer a comprehensive peel system that consists of three different chemical peels with different strengths designed to produce various degrees of exfoliation depending on each patient’s individual needs.
The Illuminize Peel is our gentlest peel — great for first-time chemical peel patients or patients looking for a gentle, very superficial peel to make their skin brighter and more radiant. It restores a more youthful appearance and improves clarity, color and skin texture. Patients achieve enhancement of the skin appearance with minimal downtime as there is no visible peeling.
The Vitalize Peel is a step up from the Illuminize Peel and targets mild to moderate pigment abnormalities, hyperpigmentation, Melasma, and sun damage. It is SkinMedica’s most popular chemical peel and is suitable for all skin types. There is very little downtime (2 – 3 days of peeling) with results after just one peel and significant results after three to six peels.
The Rejuvenize Peel is the deepest of the SkinMedica Peels, penetrating into the skin to produce significant results with minimal irritation. The Rejuvenize peel is great for patients with moderate to severe skin conditions including sun damage, lines and wrinkles, acne, acne scarring and melasma. The Rejuvenize Peel produces moderate peeling for 2 – 5 days, so the downtime is slightly more than that of the Vitalize Peel.
