Approximately every 30 days, our facial skin regenerates. The old, dead skin cells slough off, revealing newer, smoother skin below. Sometimes, though, a month is much too long to wait! Fortunately, we can bring that fresher, more radiant skin to the surface all at once and on demand through chemical peels. Chemical peels involve applying a mild acidic solution to the face, which exfoliates the layers of old skin and activates the skin’s natural ability to heal and regenerate.
Chemical peels are well-tested and effective treatments for improving the appearance of a wide variety of skin issues on the face, neck, or hands. Most commonly, patients use them to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, freckles, dark patches caused by hormonal changes (melasma), and sun damage, and to improve the appearance of mild scarring and some kinds of acne.
We’ve chosen professional peels from SkinMedica®, a dermatologist-created skincare company, because their scientifically tested products have excellent and proven results. Artemis offers two types of SkinMedica® chemical peels:
The SkinMedica® Illuminize Peel is formulated to brighten the overall appearance of the skin and create a more uniform and radiant complexion after just one peel. The Illuminze peel requires minimal downtime and, If desired, can be repeated every two weeks.
The SkinMedica® Vitalize Peel smooths roughness and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Patients enjoy noticeable results after just one peel, and even more compelling results after three to six peels. Individual results may vary.
These chemical peels are not available online and must be administered by a licensed medical professional.
