Chemical peeling is a procedure that aims to accelerate skin exfoliation by the use of chemical substances resulting in renewed, healthier looking skin and more uniform complexion.
SkinMedica® Peels address the visible skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure, such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture. Peels also address skin tone unevenness that can be caused by acne scarring or pigmentary changes. SkinMedica® offers a range of different strength chemical peels that licensed medical professionals can select to provide the optimum treatment for their patients.
During the initial consultation, your skin care professional will evaluate your skin condition and recommend the appropriate peel regimen based on your needs.
Illuminize Peel®, the gentlest SkinMedica® 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.
Illuminize Peel® is appropriate for all skin types.
Any procedures and products that may increase skin sensitivity should be avoided before your Illuminize Peel® treatment. Ask your physician or skin care specialist for details.
With Illuminize Peel® patients should not expect to see visible peeling due to the superficial nature of this peel. There is no expected downtime with Illuminize Peel®.
Most patients leave the office looking healthy and fresh. Mild redness or discoloration may occur and can be covered with makeup. Ask your physician or skin care specialist for details.
Since new skin is more susceptible to sunburn, extra precautions should be taken to limit sun exposure for at least one week after the peel. Using a broad spectrum sunscreen product with an SPF 30 or higher is recommended.
For maximum results, the Illuminize Peel® can be received every two weeks until desired results are achieved. Results are cumulative and optimal benefits are seen with a series of three or more peels.
Your post-peel care should include SkinMedica® Sensitive Skin Cleanser or Facial Cleanser, moisturizer appropriate for your skin type, and Essential Defense Mineral Shield sunscreens (tinted or untinted). Four to five days after the Illuminize Peel® you can resume the use of your regular treatment products. Ask your physician or skin care specialist for additional details.
SkinMedica® peels should not be administered to pregnant or lactating women.
