2. Skin Medica®

Illuminize Peel


Illuminize Peel


The Illuminize Peel is a medical grade chemical peel which delivers a nice “glow” to the skin immediately. This mild peel exfoliates dead skin cells in a manner similar to microdermabrasion, but without the abrasiveness of the crystals and without the risk of spreading bacteria across the skin as the microdermabrasion wand has a tendency to do.  The result is a quick glow without any peeling or downtime. This peel is ideal for individuals who want something more invasive than a facial but cannot have the downtime of peeling.

Vitalize Peel

The Vitalize Peel is our most popular peel which exfoliates your dead skin resulting in less acne, less acne scarring, less brown spots and less sun damage. Two days after this peel is applied the skin starts to shed from the chin up to the forehead for a duration of about 2-3 days.  If you want to peel during the weekend, we suggest receiving this peel on a Wednesday evening.

Rejuvenize Peel

The Rejuvenize Peel is the strongest of the 3 peels and is ideal for those who have already had other peels and are now tolerant to medical grade peels where individuals are now seeing less shedding of dead skin when other chemical peels are performed. This peel may result is some mild redness and an increase of skin peeling two days after this peel is applied.  The duration usually lasts about 3-4 days.
