SkinMedica Vitalize Peel
What is the Vitalize Peel?
Vitalize Peel is a strong but gentle chemical peel used to treat the effects of aging, sun damage and other unwanted skin conditions. Vitalize Peel is the first and only peel that is suitable for all skin types, because it uses a safe combination of alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, resorcinol and retinoic acid. While the alpha-hydroxy acids are very effective in improving the appearance of the skin, they can also cause irritation. However, the combination of other substances leaves skin feeling gentle and fresh.
What does the Vitalize Peel treat?
The Vitalize peel is best for fine lines, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and acne. Vitalize enhances collagen production and epidermal thickening. It reduces the appearance of mild to moderate skin imperfections.
How often should Vitalize Peel be used?
Best results are achieved when the Vitalize peel is done every month for 4 months. For maintenance, once every 2-3 months is recommended. The results of a Vitalize Peel are visible immediately, but repeated procedures are often used to reach desired results. Treatments last about 20 minutes each and are usually spaced 2-4 weeks apart. Vitalize Peels are performed by one of our expert providers at Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center.
