The aptly named chemical peel removes the top layer(s) of the skin via a chemical reaction in order to reveal younger-looking, clearer skin below the surface while encouraging collagen production. A wide variety of chemical peels are available at Palo Alto Laser and Skin Care to ensure that the right peel is recommended just for you. Options include VI peels, Glytone peels, and SkinMedica peels. Each type differs by what it targets, the intensity of the treatment/peeling it delivers and how much or little downtime it produces.
SkinMedica Peel System
The SkinMedica Peel System is a holistic family of peels comprised of three types: Illuminize, Vitalize, and Rejuvenize. Each of these peels offers different strengths in order to treat varying degrees of skin issues and to achieve specific exfoliation depths.
Glytone peels include two different chemical peels, one using glycolic acid and the other salicylic acid. These rejuvenating peels both reverse the signs of aging by diminishing lines, wrinkles, and sun damage while improving tone and texture. Salicylic peels can also be used as an adjunct acne treatment.
VI Peels include the VI Original, VI Peel Precision Plus, VI Peel Purify Precision Plus, and VI Peel Advanced. These peels are great choices for melasma, acne, acne-related pigmentation changes as well as skin rejuvenation.
