What is a chemical peel? Your epidermal skin cells are constantly transitioning from the bottom of the epidermal layer to the skin surface as the cells lose moisture and slowly die off. Depending on your age and skin condition, this process takes approximately 28-38 days. This surface layer of dead cells can cause the skin to look tired, aged and dull. A chemical peel uses an acidic solution to remove the outer layer of skin and stiumulate the production of new skin cells. The strength of acids determines the depth of exfoliation. Chemical peels can help improve a number of skin conditions including fine lines and wrinkles, blotchiness, acne, acne scarring, melasma and sun damage.
The Rejuvenize Peel by Skin Medica, addresses various skin conditions of all skin types, including sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, acne scarring and melasma. The Rejuvenize Peel is versatile and can be customized for the treatment of your specific condition. It combines alpha and betahydroxy acids, resorcinol and retinoic acid to gently peel away the outermost layers of your skin thus revealing a smoother, younger looking appearance. Typically, patients experience moderate peeling that starts approximately 2 days after the procedure and can last up to 5 days. $120
