A lackluster complexion can make the face appear more weary and aged. Peels are an excellent way to revive the facial skin and enhance the overall appearance. California board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Miguel Delgado is pleased to offer SkinMedica superficial peels, a powerful and safe solution to dull skin.
SkinMedica peels are unique. Unlike some other peels, the SkinMedica superficial peel series balances effectiveness with gentleness. The self-neutralizing qualities of the peels means they are well-tolerated, even by individuals who have sensitive skin and darker skin tone. Because of this, people who typically cannot have a chemical peel due to risk of discoloration and damage to the skin (people of African-American or Asian descent, for example) can benefit from SkinMedica.
SkinMedica peels, which are available in three strengths, are designed to address a range of skin imperfections and levels of damage. Each peel’s strength has been formulated to achieve optimal results and minimize irritation. Dr. Delgado uses all three strengths at his Bay Area practice.
|Illuminize||Light: Little or no visible peeling after treatment||Ideal for: First time chemical peel patients and those with minor skin imperfections
What to expect: Reveals brighter, more radiant skin;
Gently improves skin texture and clarity
|Can be repeated every 2 weeks|
|Vitalize||Medium: Mild-to-moderate peeling lasting 2-5 days||Ideal for: Mild to moderate skin imperfections
What to expect: Reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, superficial acne scarring, and hyperpigmentation
|Can be repeated every 3-4 weeks|
Moderate peeling lasting 2-5 days
|Ideal for: Mild to moderate skin imperfections
What to expect: Reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, superficial acne scarring, hyperpigmentation
|Can be repeated every 4-6 weeks|
SkinMedica peels are highly effective and can visibly improve the skin’s appearance, even after a single 20-minute treatment. Best of all, a SkinMedica peel does not typically require any downtime. To maximize results, Dr. Delgado and his team of skin care professionals generally recommend a series of 3-6 peels over the course of several weeks. The frequency of treatment depends on the strength of the peel.
