CHEMICAL PEEL/ REVITALIZE PEEL
How does Vitalize Peel® work?
Vitalize peel® uses a unique blend of safe but effective acids to cause chemical exfoliation of the epidermis, or outer layer of the skin. Skin regeneration following this chemical peel results in a fresh, organized, healthy epidermis. The result is a smoother and more even complexion and an improvement in pigment changes.
What is Vitalize Peel® used for?
The Vitalize Peel® improves the skin’s overall appearance, decreasing fine line wrinkles and restoring even skin tones. Vitalize Peel® evens out acne scarring and is particularly effective in combination with other treatments such as Laser Genesis. Vitalize Peel® is effective for pigment changes caused by acne scarring, photodamage (sun damage), “age spots”, freckles, melasma (from hormone changes), and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Vitalize Peel® tightens pores, improves skin texture, and smoothes ruddy complexions.
What will my skin feel like during and after my Vitalize Peel®?
During your Vitalize Peel®, you will experience a warm, tingling sensation. This procedure is quite tolerable and requires no pre-medication. After your peel, you may continue to experience mild tingling.
Who Can Receive a Vitalize Peel?
Patients who are not pregnant or breastfeeding, who are not on Accutane, receiving chemotherapy or radiation therapy, do not have active cold sores or warts, skin with open wounds, sunburn, excessively sensitive skin, dermatitis or inflammatory rosaecea can be treated.
What are the Pre Treatment Precautions?

- Depliatory Creams
- Laser Hair Removal
- Retin A, Differin, Tazorac
- *Benzol Peroxide or any products containing AHA or BHA
- – Any exfoliating products (Srubs, peels)
How do I Take Care of My Skin After the Peel?
You may experience mild redness or tingling following your peel. One to three days following your procedure you will notice mild to moderate peeling of the skin that can be concealed with the use of a moisturizer. This peeling is essentially unnoticeable by others.
DO : Use a Gentle Cleanser
Use Sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and Limit Sun Exposure
DO NOT: Scrub Face
Help Skin to Peel
Have any other Facial Treatment for at least 1 week
How many Vitalize Peels will it take to get a great result?
The number of treatments needed depends upon the problem being addressed but usually ranges from three to six treatments spaced two to four weeks apart. Results are generally seen after just one treatment, but a series of treatments is required for optimum results. Depending on the concern being addressed, your provider may recommend other treatments in conjunction with your Vitalize Peel®, such as Laser Genesis, which may be alternated with your peel if needed.
How long will my Vitalize Peel results last?
The changes that occur in the epidermis following a chemical peel last for years, and may even be permanent. In order to maintain your results, it is critical to avoid sun damage. In the case of acne scarring, it is necessary to control further acne breakouts in order to avoid further skin disruption. Hormonal changes, sun damage and further acne breakouts may cause new pigment changes or scarring that may require repeat treatments with Vitalize Peel® alone or in combination with other treatments.
How long does the Vitalize Peel take?
Vitalize Peel® of the face is generally performed in less than twenty minutes.
