Skin Medica Peels

In 20 minutes, a chemical peel can rejuvenate skin that has suffered from the effects of age, sun damage and other assaults. These peel’s combinations of safe but effective chemicals can help you achieve dramatic improvement in skin texture and tone, while decreasing thin lines. They have virtually no down-time, and work for all skin tones and complexions.

While it’s effective when used alone, the SkinMedica Peels can also be used to maintain the benefits of more aggressive treatments such as Fotofacial or ProFractional therapy.

How does a Chemical Peel Work?

This peel uses a mixture of safe acids to chemically exfoliate the skin’s outer layer, or epidermis, prompting skin regeneration.

What results can I expect?

SkinMedica peels can give your skin a more even tone, greater firmness and tighter pores. They can also smooth out acne scarring and fine lines, as well as treat sun damage, age spots, freckles and hperpigmentation.  These results can sometimes last for years.

How many Peels will I need?

While the number of treatments varies, it often ranges from three to six peels, spaced two to four weeks apart.

What is recovery like?

You will be able to return immediately to work and other normal activities.

Immediately after your peel, you may feel a mild tingling sensation and tightness in your skin. You should keep your skin well-moisturized, and you will need to apply sunscreen.

Peeling of the skin is also possible. Some people experience no peeling, while others peel for several days.
