What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a mild skin rejuvenation and resurfacing procedure that exfoliates and renews the skin on the face, neck, or hands using carefully selected chemicals. These treatments can be administered in a wide range of strengths, ranging from extremely mild with no downtime to severe with a more significant peeling and recovery period.
At Medical Aesthetics of Virginia, we offer our patients access to SkinMedica®’s comprehensive range of chemical peels that can be used for both casual rejuvenation and deep skin resurfacing. All of these peels are administered by our practice’s licensed Master Aesthetician, Deanna Bain.
The Illuminize Peel® is the perfect chemical peel for first-time patients. This peel helps bring a vibrant, radiant tone to the skin and features little to no downtime. It works best on mild skin imperfections, and can be used on all skin types. This peel is so gentle that there is no visible peeling after treatment.
Stronger than the Illuminize Peel®, the Vitalize Peel® can be used to address mild to moderate skin imperfections, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as uneven texture and pigmentation. This peel can be used on all skin types. Each peel generally takes 45 minutes to complete, with patients experiencing varying degrees of redness and peeling following the procedure. While noticeable results can be seen after a single peel, between three and six are usually needed for patients to maintain lasting, dramatic changes.
The strongest of the three SkinMedica® peels, the Rejuvenize Peel™ is one of the best ways for patients to address moderate to severe skin imperfections like deeper wrinkles and fine lines, as well as significant texture and discoloration issues. While this treatment can be used on all skin types, patients with darker skin will first need to receive a Vitalize Peel® to help their skin build up a tolerance to the harsher chemicals used in the Rejuvenize Peel™. Each treatment takes about 45 minutes to complete and is usually followed by significant redness and peeling. While patients can see a change in their skin after one treatment, between three and six are usually needed to get dramatic results.
At Medical Aesthetics of Virginia, we’re proud to offer our patients a broad range of clinically effective chemical peels that can bring them beautiful, non-invasive skin rejuvenation results. If you’re interested in this or any of the other state of the art treatments that we offer at our practice, contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment. We look forward to hearing from you!
