Illuminize Peel

From the provider of Kybella, Juvederm and Botox comes the Illuminize Peel. This peel is among three SkinMedica peels (including Rejuvenize Peel and Vitalize Peel) that can help resurface skin by decreasing fine lines, melasma and a host of photodamage or age-related problems. After a brief series of Illuminize peels (dependent on your skin’s needs), your skin may take on a more radiant quality. As the name of the peel suggests, this peel can brighten the complexion for a glowing effect. Responsible skin care habits, including daily use of sunscreen, can maximize the results you get from Illuminize Peel Carlsbad.*

This peel can enhance your complexion for a more vibrant, alive look. After just one peel, you may witness greater glow, as if the cells are brand new. What triggers the observable increase in radiance is the powerful ingredients that increase cellular turnover. The peeling solution contains salicylic acid, mandelic acid, resorcinol, malic acid, phytic acid, panthenol and quillaja saponaria bark extract.

How Do these Ingredients Work?

We believe ingredients matter. If you’re wondering why Allergan formulated the peel with these key ingredients, let’s break down their benefits:

  • Salicylic Acid: exfoliates and quells inflammation
  • Mandelic Acid: gently exfoliates while penetrating into pores
  • Resorcinol: lightens skin and enables salicylic acid to better penetrate
  • Malic Acid: promotes the shedding of dead cells and new collagen production
  • Phytic Acid: has antioxidant properties
  • Panthenol: provides moisture
  • Quillaja Saponaria Bark Extract: provides foaming action

While Allergan certainly combined ingredients in specific ways to maximize your skin’s benefit, these uses are a good preview into what kinds of action occur in your skin during your chemical peel.

The Illuminize Peel is the gentlest peel in the SkinMedica collection. If you are a first-time chemical peel user, this peel is likely a great candidate. Because it’s more lightweight and is categorized as a superficial peel, it’s best to treat mild skin problems. Compared to the Rejuvenize Peel, this peel has nearly no downtime.

What is the Peeling Experience Like?

Expecting to lay down and cringe in pain? We have hopeful news. The peeling process is brief and easy. When you enter the treatment room, the skin care specialist may wipe off any remaining makeup, dirt or oil on your face with an isopropyl alcohol and acetone solution. After prepping the skin, the chemical peel provider will apply the peeling solution over your face. Then, it’s a waiting game for you to witness the results!

How Long Do Results Last?

The results from the chemical peel can last for many months.* How long you see a decrease in fine lines and sun damage is contigent upon several factors, involving you taking diligent care of your health and not practicing unhealthy lifestyle habits (such as spending hours tanning in the sun). Because Illuminize Peel Carlsbad is a superficial peel, you can repeat it every two weeks for as long as you like to maintain results. However, you may find it unnecessary to get it so often, as you begin to notice with successive treatments modest improvement in the appearance of your skin!

The Illuminize Peel Carlsbad is adept at treating a number of skin issues, particularly around skin tone and texture. Some cosmetic problems it can address include pigmentation issues, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage and acne. Regular use of the peel every few months can maintain skin in a softer, more youthful state. Not only does it treat a number of skin problems; the peel procedure itself is very simple. You can expect a fast visit and results to show up only a few days (or hours) later. Skin may look healthier and fresher than before (with mild redness or erythema immediately following the peel).*

Because this peel is pretty lightweight, you don’t need to have a time-consuming skin regimen in place to ensure your skin’s health. Besides responsible daily use of an SPF 30 or higher broad spectrum sunscreen, you are free to do as you please. The only recommendation is to avoid acute sun exposure in the week following the peel. Skin will be more sensitive after the peel as it is turning over, which may increase your risk for sunburn.

How Do I Maintain Skin Peeling Results For Longer?

Follow a healthy lifestyle to maintain healthier-looking skin. We recommend you abstain from smoking, drink plenty of water everyday, sleep a minimum of eight hours a night and practice any other advice you notice makes you feel, and look, better everyday. Healthy skin starts from the inside, so fuel your body with proper nutrients and work out to ensure your skin can benefit. Consult with your doctor for medical advice that is specific to your lifestyle and conditions.
