The SkinMedica® Peels trio of peels are available at Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery. Our office, located near Washington, D.C. offers the latest in chemical peels. The SkinMedica® Peels consist of the Illuminize®, Vitalize® and Rejuvenize™ peels. The peels have varying levels of exfoliation and can be done safely and effectively in our office. Our aesthetician, Shana, will advise you as to which is the best based on your skin type and desired outcome.
- Illuminize Peel® – gentlest peel of the bunch. It will provide brighter and tighter skin that glows. Perfect for an upcoming event. Also great when no visible peeling is desired. These peels can be repeated every two weeks. Great starter peel to combine with two vitalize peels in a package.
- Vitalize Peel® – The most popular peel. Suitable for all skin types and yields predictable results. Best when there is some correction that needs to take place – eg fine lines, pigment issues, acne, acne scarring. Peeling typically begins two days after the procedure and lasts 2 to 3 days. These peels are typically performed once per month until the desired correction is achieved.
- Rejuvenize Peel™ – deepest of the peels, penetrates into the epidermis to produce significant improvements in acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and texture. Indicated for moderate to severe correction. Moderate peeling that begins 2 days after the procedure and can last up to 5 days. Darker skin types are best treated with vitalize peels on a regular basis.
