About Facial Peels at Skin Care Institute
The SkinMedica® Illuminize Peel™ is a mild peel with little to no downtime that can brighten your complexion and create a radiant glow. It’s the perfect skin pick-me-up before a big event like a wedding, reunion or holiday party. Many of our clients swear by this quick, non-invasive treatment, which can easily be done on a lunch break. A series of treatments at regular intervals is one of the best things you can do to maintain skin health and beauty.
Achieve dramatic improvement in epidermal texture, skin tone, lessening of superficial lines, and a healthier, more youthful look and feel with minimal down time. Using a retinoic acid base, this renewal process has been clinically proven to help pigmentation problems fade and stimulate collagen production. Expect 5–7 days of peeling and flaking.
Even moderate to severe hyperpigmentation, like Melasma, sunspots and age spots, as well as fine lines and wrinkles on the face are no match for a SkinMedica® Rejuvenize Peel™ series! With noticeable improvement after just one peel, a series of treatments is recommended to achieve and maintain dramatic anti-aging results. While social downtime is about one week, this is one of the best non-invasive options for keeping the signs of aging and sun damage at bay.
Micropeel is a three-step clinical procedure combining dermaplaning (physical exfoliation), chemical exfoliation, and cryogenic therapy to reduce signs of photoaging including fine lines, wrinkles, dullness and visible skin imperfections in a series of 4–6 procedures.
Restore sun-damaged skin cells, remove skin layers in pre-cancerous areas, and stimulate collagen formation for a healthier, younger complexion. They are today’s revolutionary treatment to whisk away wrinkles, smooth unevenly pigmented skin or repair acne scars in people of all ages. More than one treatment may be required. Treatments must be at least six weeks apart. Expect seven to ten days of peeling. Note: Prior to receiving a Jessner’s Peel, Retin-A should be applied to the skin nightly for two to three weeks but discontinued 72 hours before your peel. (Retin A is available at The Skin Care Institute.)
