Can I Get Illuminize If I Have Sensitive Skin?
One of the best things about Illuminize? How mild it is. It doesn’t cause any visible skin peeling and only a little redness. It’s so mild that it’s fine for people with sensitive skin, as well as all skin tones.
An Illuminize Peel appointment lasts about 45 minutes. This includes time before and after for questions and discussion, and the peel itself takes about 20 minutes. You may feel some discomfort while the peel is on your skin, but the chemical solution is so mild that many people don’t feel any discomfort at all.
There might be some mild redness or discoloration, but it lasts only a few days. Most people find that it’s easy to cover with light makeup.
For the first week after the peel, your skin will be more sensitive to sun damage. During this time, avoid sun exposure, and use a good, broad-spectrum sunscreen, like one from SkinMedica. Using SkinMedica products designed for sensitive and post-procedure skin is also a good idea for the first few days.
Illuminize is so gentle that you can have the procedure as often as every two weeks. While you’ll see results after the very first peel, the results are cumulative. This means that your skin will continue to improve each time you have a peel! It’s advised that you have three or more peels to get the best results.
