Your skin sustains damage from environmental irritants, genetics, and aging that could result in a wide variety of cosmetic concerns. For instance, many adults develop age spots, acne scars, fine lines, rough skin, and hyperpigmentation from sun damage and trauma to the skin. In many cases, individuals struggling with these issues turn to chemical peel treatments that revitalize facial skin through acid-based exfoliation.
However, for targeting mild and moderate skin imperfections, most patients need a medium intensity chemical peel, which results in significant side effects for one to two weeks. Instead of a traditional chemical peel, consider an equally effective treatment with a shorter recovery period: the SkinMedica Vitalize Peel in Dallas. For more details on how a Vitalize Peel could improve your skin, contact North Texas Plastic Surgery for a consultation to discuss your cosmetic goals for treatment.
A SkinMedica Vitalize Peel treatment improves skin texture and tone for patients in Plano and elsewhere in North Texas by exfoliating damaged and dead skin from several dermal layers. Specifically, the procedure uses lactic acid to exfoliate and condition the skin, salicylic acid to treat acne and increase collagen production, and resorcinol acid to boost the treatment’s overall effectiveness. Typically, the entire procedure lasts for around 45 minutes, only about half of which will have the solution on your skin. Patients may resume their regular skincare routine after a week.
However, immediately after treatment, patients must minimize sun exposure as much as possible to prevent healing complications. Further, following aftercare instructions and using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher is essential during recovery after a Vitalize Peel.
Unlike traditional medium-peel chemical peels that require between seven and 14 days for side effects to subside, Vitalize Peel patients typically have mild skin peeling for up to one week. The first few hours after a session will see a yellowish tinge and potential redness to your skin, which will soon fade away. However, the results last for as long as traditional peels, normally ranging between two and six months for most patients, especially after several treatments.
Like most chemical peels, SkinMedica Vitalize Peel treatment primarily targets visible skin irregularities, including discoloration, aging signs, and texture. For instance, the chemical peel could reduce superficial and moderate scarring, hyperpigmentation, fine wrinkles, and acne breakouts by unclogging pores.
In addition to superficial skin blemishes, patients could combat new aging signs from forming as collagen production increases after a SkinMedica Vitalize peel treatment in our Southlake office. Over time, as the collagen builds up, the skin’s structure and support will strengthen, creating naturally smoother, tighter skin. Further, the treatment thickens facial skin, which helps patients’ skin age less quickly than without treatment.
Restoring even texture and tone to your skin with a chemical peel is an excellent option for most individuals with aging signs, blemishes, and scarring. Specifically, people in Dallas with moderate skin imperfections and concerns about aging skin should consider a medium-intensity treatment, the SkinMedica Vitalize Peel. In addition to superficial improvements to the skin, the medium-intensity chemical peel creates naturally healthier skin over time by generating new collagen production.
Though many Vitalize Peel patients undergo three or more treatments, the results last several months despite a significantly shorter recovery period. However, certain skin conditions, prescriptions, and medical conditions may limit an individual’s candidacy for a SkinMedica Vitalize Peel. We ask that you set up a consultation to discuss your medical history and skin concerns with our Med Spa team to determine whether you are suitable for treatment.
