People decide to get skin peels for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s wrinkles, fine lines, acne, acne scarring, an uneven skin tone or uneven skin texture, skin peels are able to minimize the skin’s imperfections and reveal newer, smoother, and healthier skin. Unlike other treatments, SkinMedica peels from Urban Allure in San Francisco, CA have little downtime, are convenient, and are non-invasive. The skin peel treatment can be customized to your skin’s needs to ensure that your skin looks great.
What Is a SkinMedica Peel?
These peels are convenient and non-invasive chemical peels that do not require compounding, timing, or neutralization, making them an excellent choice for someone looking to receive a peel to help with their skin’s imperfections!
Chemical peels help accelerate the skin’s exfoliation, peeling away old, upper layers of skin, which may be more damaged, to reveal newer, healthier skin and a more uniform complexion that will help minimize the appearance imperfections. Peels can also encourage new cells to grow, which helps combat a lack of collagen or elastin in the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles in the skin.
SkinMedica’s products have specialty ingredients, like vitamins C and E, retinol, and TNS (their patented blend of soluble collagen, antioxidants, matrix proteins, and growth factors) to help you achieve clear, healthier, more beautiful skin.
We offer three types of their peels: the Illuminize Peel, the Vitalize Peel, and the Rejuvenize Peel. Each peel targets helping certain aspects of the skin and must be applied by a professional.
The Illuminize Peel, the gentlest of SkinMedica’s peels, can be used to minimize mild skin imperfections such as fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, uneven skin texture, and acne scarring. The peel results in vibrant and radiant skin with a more uniform complexion.
This peel can be used on all skin types, and there is no expected downtime with this peel and little to no visible peeling. It can be repeated every two weeks, and three or more peels result in the greatest benefits.
The Illuminize Peel is perfect for people receiving their first chemical peel due to its gentleness and for people with mild skin imperfections who would like to have brighter, more radiant skin with a smoother complexion.
The Vitalize Peel
The Vitalize Peel can help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and roughness on the skin. It can be used on mild-to-moderate skin imperfections caused by sun exposure and skin aging and can help with smoothing any unevenness in the skin’s tone and the skin’s texture from hyper-pigmentation, acne or acne scarring, and melasma.
This peel takes around 45 minutes, with about 20 minutes dedicated to the application of the peel and the rest to questions and discussing caring for your skin after the treatment. The Vitalize Peel can be repeated every three to four weeks, and it can take three to six treatments to achieve the best results. This peel has minimal downtime and two to five days of mild-to-moderate peeling.
The Rejuvenize Peel can help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and roughness through smoothing the skin’s appearance. This peel is appropriate for use on moderate to severe skin imperfections from skin aging and sun exposure. It can be used on all skin types, but for Fitzpatrick skin types V-VI, patients should first establish tolerability to the Vitalize Peel.
Just one Rejuvenize Peel can have noticeable results in the skin’s appearance and clarity, and the peel can be repeated every four to six weeks. After three to six peels, the skin will show great improvement.
The Rejuvenize Peel will take around 45 minutes, including the application time, which is around 20 minutes, and time to discuss questions and how to care for your skin after the treatment. It has minimal downtime and is followed by moderate peeling that will last two to five days.
What Should I Do After a Peel?
After a skin peel treatment, the skin will be more susceptible to sunburn, so it’s important to limit sun exposure for a week or longer after the peel and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher to protect your new skin.
Once your skin has finished peeling, a process that can take up to five days, depending on the type of skin peel you receive, you can resume your regular skincare regimen. You can receive another skin peel treatment, if you desire, once the recommended waiting time between peels has passed. Repeated skin peel treatments can help your skin look even healthier.
How Will a SkinMedica Peel Help My Skin?
The Illuminize, Vitalize, and Rejuvenize Peels will make your skin appear clearer and smoother through minimizing its wrinkles, fine lines, scars, and other skin imperfections. The peel will strip away the outer layers of skin to reveal smoother, newer, and healthier layers of skin, which will result in more consistent and healthier skin tone and texture.
A single skin peel treatment can have excellent results, but with repeated treatments, the results will be even more obvious.
