The Vitalize Peel
The Vitalize Peel is a chemical peel designed to treat hyperpigmentation, acne and fine lines. The active peeling agents include salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol; followed by a retinol solution. This process helps to brighten the skin and is safe for all skin types.
What To Expect:
IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE PEEL AND UP TO 24 HOURS
Your skin may be tight and have a red, yellow, or orange tint to it. This is a temporary condition and will fade in a few hours. Wait until bedtime before washing your face. Start applying moisturizer after washing your face at bedtime the same night of the peel. Avoid strenuous exercise starting the day of the procedure and while your skin is peeling.
24 HOURS AFTER THE PEEL AND UNTIL PEELING IS COMPLETE
Your skin may feel tight until it begins peeling. Peeling generally starts 48-72 hours after the procedure and can last 2 to 5 days. During the first 48 hours or before the skin starts to peel or flake, apply moisturizer twice a day. While the skin is peeling, moisturizer should be reapplied more frequently to control the peeling. DO NOT PICK OR PULL THE SKIN. Allow the skin to peel at its own pace. Premature peeling of the skin will result in dry, cracked, raw skin that may develop into post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (dark spots on skin).
AFTER PEELING IS COMPLETE
You may resume the regular use of Retin-A, retinol, alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) products, or bleaching creams ONLY AFTER the peeling process is completed. Wait until peeling process is completed before having ANY OTHER FACIAL PROCEDURES including facials, microdermabrasion, and facial hair removal (including laser hair removal), Botox injections or injectable fillers.
POST-PEEL SKIN CARE REGIMEN
Use a gentle cleanser, soap-free cleanser like SkinMedica Sensitive Skin Cleanser or Facial Cleanser. Wash the face gently and avoid rubbing the skin; do not scrub or use a washcloth while the skin is peeling.
While skin is peeling apply TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream as often as needed to relieve any dryness and control peeling. Apply moisturizer gently and avoid rubbing the skin.
Apply Daily Physical Defense Sunscreen Broad Spectrum 30+ Sunscreen in the AM and throughout the day. AVOID direct sunlight for at least one week.
SERIES OF PEELS:
Vitalize Peel can be applied every 3 to 4 weeks until desired results are achieved. Results are cumulative and maximum benefits are seen with a series of three or more peels.
SkinMedica by Allergan
We have selected SkinMedica as the skin care line to offer the BEST to our patients! SkinMedica utilizes what they call the “GRASS” method.
G represents Growth Factors. Growth factors help support the foundation of skin. These factors are found in our TNS Recovery Serum for use immediately after treatments, and our premier continuous skin care product, the TNS Essential Serum. They are recommended for all skin types. The Recovery Serum is used after laser, chemical peels, and MicroPen treatments to speed recovery time and promote healthy and refreshed new skin. The TNS Essential Serum is for everyday use and contains a separate chamber for antioxidants and peptides. They both improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone and texture. The client below was treated with TNS Essential Serum after her MicroPen with PRP treatment. She saw improved tone and texture after 8 weeks.
R represents Retinol. Retinol enhances exfoliation which causes shedding to help your skin to look smoother and feel softer. We offer three strengths: 0.25 for mild skin conditions, 0.50 for mild to moderate conditions and a 1.0 for moderate to severe skin conditions.
A represents Antioxidants. These products improve the appearance of your skin and prevent free radical damage which accelerate aging skin. We recommend either Vitamin C + E for all skin types or Dermal Repair Cream for dry skin.
S represents Specialty Products such as Lytera. Lytera is a skin brightening product suitable for all skin types. Clinical results show similar cosmetic results to 4% hydroquinone in as little as 4 weeks without the possible risks of hydroquinone.
S represents Sun Protection. Essential in Las Vegas to defend against UVA and UVB rays and to protect against premature aging due to photodamage and photoaging. We offer two products: Daily Physical Defense Broad SPF 30, and our latest product Total Defense and Repair SPF 50, the first sunscreen to protect against infrared rays as well as UVA/ UVB.
