The Chemical Peel is a procedure which involves a chemical solution that is applied
to the skin which causes a the outermost layer of skin to separate and peel off. The new,
regenerated skin underneath is usually smoother in texture and more even in color than the old
skin.  There are various types of Chemical Peels each developed for specific indications such as
wrinkles, acne, overall skin texture and skin tone.  Some chemical peels are mild and have no
down time, others are stronger and have down time for up to one week.   Chemical peels can be
performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, and legs.

Benefits and Visible results of Chemical Peels

•     Correct uneven skin pigmentation
•     Texture becomes more refined   
•     Fine lines and wrinkles become less apparent
•     Oily or acne-prone skin is improved
•     Enlarged pores appear smaller
•     Superficial scars appear reduced
•     Skin appears healthier, more youthful and radiant

Generally, no anesthesia is needed for peels since they cause only a slight stinging sensation
during application. Protecting skin from the sun is important following a peel.

In a consultation with Dr. Rubinstein or our aesthetician, a treatment regimen is designed to
identify the type of peel based on the condition of your skin and the desired result as well as
available recovery time.

The VITALIZE Peel from SkinMedica brings the benefit of a unique blend of acids to create one of
the strongest, but safest and most gentle epidermal peels. Even after one peel you will begin to
notice a dramatic improvement in your skin’s texture and tone, lessening of superficial lines and
a healthier, more youthful look and feel. The renewal process has been clinically proven to help
pigmentation problems (such as age spots) fade and stimulate collagen production in the cells
underneath. The VITALIZE Peel is safe and gentle for all skin types.

Alphahydroxy acids (AHAs) such as glycolic, lactic, or fruit acids range from the mildest of the

skin.  The strength of the peel is based on your desired results, the condition of your skin and
available recovery time.  A consultation with Dr. Rubinstein or our aesthetician helps define your

A molecular weight hyaluronic acid that holds 1000 times of its weight in water is infused into the
skin using topical hyperbaric oxygen technology.  This process supplements and plumps the
skin surface and stimulates regeneration of new cells to visibly reduce the appearance of fine
lines and wrinkles. A series of six weekly treatments is recommended, but just one 30 minute
treatment will help your skin look and feel nourished and hydrated. This celebrity endorsed O2
Facial is great before parties or photo shoots.
