SkinMedica® Peels address the visible skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure, such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture. Peels also address skin tone unevenness that can be caused by acne scarring or pigmentary changes. SkinMedica® offers a range of different strength chemical peels that licensed medical professionals can select to provide the optimum treatment for their patients.
How do I decide which particular peel is most beneficial for me?
During the initial consultation, your skin care professional will evaluate your skin condition and recommend the appropriate peel regimen based on your needs.
Who is the ideal candidate for a Vitalize Peel®?
Vitalize Peel® is appropriate for patients with mild-to-moderate skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure, such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture. Vitalize Peel®treatments also address skin unevenness that can be caused by acne scarring or other pigmentary changes.
Can Vitalize Peel® be performed on patients with dark skin?
Vitalize Peel® is appropriate for all skin types.
How do I prepare for this peel?
Any procedures and products that may increase skin sensitivity should be avoided before your Vitalize Peel® treatment. Ask your physician or skin care specialist for details.
What should I expect during the Vitalize Peel®procedure?
The complete treatment is expected to take 45 minutes, which includes ample time to address any questions you may have, and a discussion on your post peel care. The actual application procedure is approximately 20 minutes. Tolerance to the procedure varies from patient to patient. Tingling or burning sensations are normal and expected reactions. A handheld fan can be used during the procedure to minimize discomfort, which usually subsides in a few minutes.
SkinMedica’s Rejuvenize Peel™
The SkinMedica Rejuvenize Peel penetrates deep into the epidermis and produces the most exfoliation. It uses an advanced formulation of peeling agents, with a built-in anti-irritant and penetration enhancer that provides controlled exfoliation of the uppermost damaged layers of the skin to reveal fresher and healthier skin.
Smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. See noticeable improvement after just one peel and compelling results after three to six peels.
Appropriate for moderate to severe skin imperfections as determined by your physician.
Peel must be administered by a licensed medical professional (a physician, aesthetician or a nurse under a physician’s supervision).

Will I peel after receiving a Rejuvenize Peel™ treatment?
The degree of peeling may vary depending on the individual’s skin condition and degree of the damage. Peeling can range from mild flaking to peeling in sheets. Regardless of the amount of peeling, the skin is still sloughing off at an accelerated rate, which will result in the following benefits: improvement in the appearance of skin tone and texture, smoothness of fine lines and wrinkles.
How should I take care of my skin during the peeling?
Your skin care professional will provide you with in depth post-procedure instructions. Your post-peel regimen will include SkinMedica® Sensitive Skin Cleanser or Facial Cleanser, moisturizer appropriate for your skin type, and Daily Physical Defense® Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30+.
How should I protect my skin post peel?
Since the new skin is more susceptible to sunburn, extra precautions should be taken to limit sun exposure for at least one week after the peel. It is imperative to use a broad spectrum sunscreen product with an SPF of 30 or higher.
After the Rejuvenize Peel™ treatment, when can I resume my regular skin care regimen?
You can resume the use of your regular treatment products after you have completely finished peeling.
What results can I expect after having a Rejuvenize Peel™ treatment?
After a Rejuvenize Peel™, treatment patients will notice an improvement of overall skin condition, diminishment in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smoothness of skin texture and more even skin color and improved skin clarity.
How often can Rejuvenize Peel™ be repeated?
Rejuvenize Peel™ can be repeated every 4-6 weeks.
How many treatments are required?
Multiple treatments may be required to achieve desired results. The number of treatments is based on initial level of skin damage, and can vary from 3 to 6. The effect of the peels is cumulative and results are more favorable when the peels are used in conjunction with a SkinMedica® daily product regimen.
How do I maintain optimal results following Rejuvenize Peel™
Rejuvenize Peel™ is part of a skin management program that includes SkinMedica® home-use products. To maintain optimal results achieved with Rejuvenize Peel™ treatments, patients should use a daily skin care regimen recommended by a physician or skin care specialist.
Can pregnant or lactating women receive a Rejuvenize Peel™?
SkinMedica® peels should not be administered on pregnant or lactating women.
