SkinMedica® Professional Peels

SkinMedica® offers a comprehensive Peel System that consists of three different chemical peels with different acid strength, designed to produce various degrees of exfoliation based on each patient’s individual needs.

Each peel is:
• Easy to use
• Does not require timing or neutralization
• Well tolerated with minimal irritation
• Can be performed in about 20 minutes


This non-invasive very superficial chemical peel utilizes a novel approach to chemical peeling with a newer generation of alpha-hydroxy acids (mandelic acid and malic acid) in combination with phytic acid and commonly used peeling agents (salicylic acid and resorcinol) to maximize skin rejuvenating effects with low irritation.

• Increase skin glow and radiance
• Tightens the skin and restores a more youthful appearance
• Improves clarity, color and skin texture
• Patients achieve enhancement of skin appearance with minimal downtime and discomfort
• Appropriate for first-time chemical peel patients or patients looking for a gentle, very superficial peel
• May be performed on Skin types I- VI
• Little or no visible peeling


Vitalize Peel helps fight the effects of time, sun damage, and environmental assaults. This powerful yet non-damaging peel can take years off aging skin.

• Addresses various skin conditions, such as pigmentation abnormalities, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation,
melasma, and photodamage
• Effective (achieve visible improvement after one treatment, significant results after a series of treatments)
• Can be customized for the treatment of each specific condition
• May be performed on Skin types I- VI
• Little or no down time
• Peeling solution combined with Retinoic acid creates more exfoliation than other chemical peels same depth
• Well tolerated (minimum or no burning, peeling solution has pH 2-3, higher than most chemical peels)
• Easy to use (does not require timing or neutralization)


Rejuvenize Peel is an advanced formulation of peeling agents, with a built-in anti-irritant and penetration enhancer that provides controlled exfoliation of the uppermost damaged layers of the skin to reveal fresher and healthier skin. Provides predictable results with minimal down time.

• Effective for use on skin with sun damage, melasma, pigmentary changes and acne scarring
• Noticeable improvement with just one peel
• Recommended for Skin types I-VI
• Can be used on skin types V-VI after the patient has established tolerability to Vitalize Peel, or with
physician consent
• Well tolerated with minimal “down time”
• Easy to use (does not require timing or neutralization)
• A novel synthetic surfactant, Isoceteth-20, creates more uniform peeling while controlling penetration of
salicylic acid, and therefore reduces skin irritation associated with the stronger chemical peels without
diminishing peeling effect
