SkinMedica® chemical peels are designed to help reduce the visible signs of aging because even when you take good care of your skin, daily life and cellular oxidation can take their toll. Vitalize Peel® reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and smooths roughness too. You’ll start to see the results of a Vitalize Peel the first time you get one.
Vitalize is great for people with mild-to-moderate skin problems, such as:
- Fine lines
- Rough skin
- Uneven skin tone
- Skin affected by other kinds of pigment changes
It’s appropriate for people of all skin types, with all skin tones.
Your Vitalize Peel Session
A single treatment takes about 45 minutes. This includes time for asking questions about the procedure and the peel itself. You’ll spend around 20 minutes with the peel solution on your skin.
During the peel, it’s normal to feel some tingling and burning sensations. The discomfort can be reduced by cooling your skin with a hand-held fan and should subside after a short time.
After the peel is removed, your skin may have a yellowish tinge for two to three hours. There may also be some moderate redness. These changes are normal reactions, and they should go away before long.
Your skin will be more sensitive than normal for three to five days after the chemical peel. During this time, take good care of your skin with SkinMedica sensitive-skin products. A broad-spectrum sunscreen (applied every two hours) is especially important for the first week after the peel because your skin will be more sensitive to sun damage. Once your skin has finished peeling, you can return to your normal skincare routine.
While you’ll start to see changes in your skin’s appearance and texture after the first peel, it usually takes three to six peels to see substantial improvements. You can have a Vitalize Peel every three to four weeks, so it won’t be long before your skin is looking fantastic!
