Exfoliating Peels


Exfoliating peels offer another way to remove dead skin cells and maintain a fresh complexion. Skin & Cosmetic Solutions’ peels pamper, renew and hydrate in a variety of ways.

Glycolic Peel

The glycolic acid in our glycolic peel helps remove the thick outer layer of excessive dead skin cells and promotes collagen production, improved texture, smoothness and hydration.

Vitalize Peel

SkinMedica’s Vitalize Peel is an ideal procedure for patients who have started and maintained a consistent skin rejuvenation program involving home products and exfoliating treatments. This peel contains lactic and salicylic acids, which dramatically improve skin texture and tone, and diminish superficial lines. The Vitalize Peel increases collagen production, helps fade areas of hyperpigmentation, improves acne and acne scarring, and increases the penetration of skin rejuvenation products.

After treatment, the skin may feel tight as if exposed to the sun or wind, and should be kept well moisturized. The degree of peeling varies according to skin type. Some patients will experience no peeling while others may peel for several days. Patients should avoid using any alpha-hydroxy acid or Retinoid products if the skin is flaking or peeling, but should apply sunscreen regularly to newly exposed skin.

For maximum benefits, a Vitalize Peel should be scheduled every three to four weeks, but it’s also effective one to two times a year for patients who desire exfoliation that goes deeper than a glycolic peel.

Illuminize Peel

The Illuminize Peel is an exfoliating peel utilizing a new generation of alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA’s). A combination of five AHA’s, including salicylic acid, offers rejuvenating effects with low irritation.

After one Illuminize Peel clients generally notice:

  • Increased skin glow and radiance
  • Tightening of the skin
  • A more youthful appearance
  • Improvement in clarity, color and skin texture

A treatment consists of preparing the skin, application of the peeling solution and application of TNS Ceramide treatment cream. The process takes approximately 25 – 30 minutes and may be administered every 3 – 6 weeks depending on your individual skin rejuvenation goals. Results are cumulative and maximum benefits are seen with a series of three or more peels.
