Who Can Benefit from a Chemical Peel... And Why Now?

Most of us are dealing with some sort of skin condition, such as sun damage, wrinkles, acne, acne scarring, or Melasma. If you fall into this category, now is the perfect time to correct and refresh your skin with a chemical peel. Chemical peeling is a procedure that aims to accelarate skin exfoliation, resulting in renewed, healthier looking skin and a more uniform complexion. These treatments don't mix particularly well with sun exposure. So this time of year, when the is lower in the sky and our lifestyles keep  up indoors a bit more, is when we recommend using skin peels the most.

This time of year, it is also very common to find that no matter how much moisture you use, your skin still feels dry and dull.This is another reason why chemical peels are the perfect winter-time skin treament - because your dryness is probably at least due to an artificially thick build-up of dead skin cells, which are blocking the surface of your skin from absorbing and utilizing your moisturizer (and any other topical products you may be applying). By clearing off this layer, you not only brighten your complexion, but you also allow your skin to receive topical products in a meaningful and beneficial way.

The Vitalize Peel (V-Peel) from SkinMedica is our most popular chemical peel treatment. Suitable for all skin types, it combines Retinol, Salicylic Acid and Lactic Acid to fight the effects of time, sun damage, acne, and Melasma. it smooths the appearance of discolorations, fine lines, wrinkles and roughness and requires little-to-no down time. This painless peel produces a light to moderate amount of peeling for 2-3 days, and can be repeated every 4-6 weeks. You'll experience noticeable results after just one peel, and compelling results after a series of 4 peels (spaced 4-6 weeks apart).
