Chemical peels can effectively provide relief from various skin problems on the face, neck, chest, and even hands. It involves the use of a chemical solution to cause damaged skin cells to gradually peel away in a controlled manner. This gives way to youthful new skin without blemishes or other aesthetic issues.
There are different kinds of peels for specific skin problems. New advanced chemical peels are now available that deliver excellent results for different skin types and problems. Illuminize, Vitalize, and Rejuvenize peels from SkinMedica are three such peels that can help you get youthful and healthy skin with great efficacy.
Illuminize is a type of superficial chemical peel. Such peels contain mild acids and specifically work on the outermost skin layer. Illuminize contains salicylic acid, phytic acid, malic acid, and a few other chemicals.
It is a very gentle peel, and because of this, it requires no downtime. It is ideal for first-time users of chemical peels. It is also useful for people who only have mild skin problems. If you want glowing skin or simply wish to rejuvenate your skin then Illuminize may be the perfect peel for you.
The Vitalize peel contains lactic acid, salicylic acid, and a few more chemicals. It is a medium chemical peel, which means that it can penetrate past the superficial skin layer to the middle layer.
It is effective for treatment of skin problems such as wrinkles, pigmentation, acne scarring, and roughness. It can improve the skin’s texture and make it look fresh.
The Rejuvenize chemical peel contains salicylic acid, panthenol, and a few more chemicals. It is ideal for removing wrinkles, fine lines, and rough skin. It can improve the skin’s texture after sun damage. It also penetrates the middle skin layer but is stronger than the Vitalize peel.
It is a powerful peel that delivers excellent results after one treatment. For eliminating wrinkles and skin damage thoroughly, you may need multiple sessions. If your skin’s tone is uneven due to acne scars or pigmentation then the Rejuvenize peel may be beneficial for you.
Chemical Peel Treatment Considerations
SkinMedica peels are formulated from advanced chemical combinations. Both the Illuminize and Vitalize peels require minimal downtime after treatment. Rejuvenize is a stronger peel, so you may need some recovery time depending on your skin’s condition. You may need one or multiple treatment sessions based on your skin’s condition.
If you are pregnant or nursing, you may need to wait before you can opt for chemical peel treatments. Chemical peels can produce some temporary side effects, such as redness of the skin. These usually resolve soon after the treatment. During the treatment, you may also feel a slight tingling, which is normal. Sun protection is essential for a few days after the treatment.
