Regardless of whether you’re looking to illuminize, rejuvenize or vitalize your skin, a SkinMedica chemical peel delivered by Dr. Doppelt and the professionals at Southeastern Dermatology will give you the results you crave for smooth, even skin.
A SkinMedica chemical peel is delivered by a physician, nurse or esthetician and is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin. Sun exposure, acne, or just getting older can leave your skin tone uneven, wrinkled, spotted or scarred.
How Does A Chemical Peel Work?
A chemical peel uses a solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers to reveal younger, more even looking skin underneath. Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on the hands and neck.
A chemical peel can help improve:
- Acne or acne scars
- Age and liver spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Irregular skin pigmentation
- Rough skin and scaly patches
- Sun-damaged skin
It’s also important to note that a chemical peel will not:
- Treat deep facial lines
- Tighten lose or sagging skin
- Remove broken capillaries
- Change pore size
- Remove deep scars
Dr. Doppelt’s office delivers three varieties of SkinMedica chemical peel, each designed to deliver varying results based on the recipient’s need and desired effect.
SkinMedica Illuminize Peel
The Illuminize peel is appropriate for resolving minor skin imperfections and can brighten the overall appearance of skin and give patients a more uniform complexion. Many patients notice radiant looking skin after one peel. There is no expected downtime with the Illuminize peel and the skin is treated with gentle ingredients including salicylic acid, mandelic acid, resorcinol, malic acid, panthenol and Quillaja Saponaria bark extract.
SkinMedica Rejuvenize Peel
The Rejuvenize peel can help resolve moderate to severe skin imperfections as determined by your physician. Results are noticeable after one treatment and are optimized after a series of three to six peels. The Rejuvenize peel can improve the skin’s texture and smooth the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and roughness, as well as skin unevenness that can be caused by acne scarring or pigmentary changes. Ingredients like retinol, salicylic acid, mandelic acid, resorcinol, malic acid, panthenol and Quillaja Saponaria bark extract pamper and smooth the skin during treatment.
SkinMedica Vitalize Peel
The Vitalize peel can smooth the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and roughness. Results are generally noticeable after just one peel and are compelling after a series of three to six peels. Peels can be applied every three to four weeks, allowing you to achieve maximum results in just a few months. Ingredients including salicyclic acid, resorcinol, lactic acid and panthenol smooth the skin during treatment.
