SkinMedica Peels address the visible skin imperfections that result from photo-damaged skin, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentary irregularities, acne-prone skin and mild acne scarring. We offer a range of different strength chemical peels allowing us to select the optimum treatment option to address your specific concerns. The degree of peeling may vary depending on the individual's skin type and skin condition. The success of the peel is not determined by the amount of peeling but by the end results that the peel will produce. Regardless of the degree of peeling, the skin is still sloughing off at an accelerated rate which will result in enhanced skin tone and texture as well as a decrease in the appearance of fine lines and skin discoloration.
This is a light peel and perfect before a special event. It is appropriate for first-time peel patients with mild skin imperfections that are looking for brighter, more radiant skin.
Skin may be tight and more red than usual the day of the procedure. Because of the superficial nature of this peel, visible peeling rarely occurs. Skin should be normal the next day. Some patients will have minor flaking 3-4 days after the peel.
