A chemical peel is a treatment used to improve pigmentation and smooth the texture of the skin using a chemical solution that removes the damaged outer layers. There is a chemical peel for every type of skin, so you can confidently trust our professionals to find an answer for your skin care! The regenerated skin is usually clearer, smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Northshore Dermatology offers 3 different types of SkinMedica® Chemical Peels. Peels are recommended in a series of three (3) treatments to achieve maximum results.
The Illuminize Peel, often called a Glow Peel, is recommended for skin with mild imperfections. This ‘peel’ will add luster to the skin without any downtime or actual peeling of skin. A series of three is recommended with the treatments spaced 2-3 weeks apart.
The Vitalize Peel is often recommended for patients with mild to moderate skin imperfections. A series of three (3) is recommended and treatments are spaced 3-4 weeks apart. Approximately, 48-72 hours after treatment, the skin may begin to peel. Peeling usually lasts from 2-7 days post treatment, patient experiences may vary.
The Rejuvenize Peel is best for patients with moderate to severe skin imperfections. A series of three (3) is recommended and they are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Approximately, 48-72 hours after treatment, the skin may begin to peel. Peeling usually lasts from 2-10 days post treatment, patient experiences may vary.
