Looking for a gentle way to refresh your skin? Consider a chemical peel at Miami Skin and Vein!
With all of the new technologies used today, it can be easy to forget that there are outstanding ways to refresh the skin without lasers or light therapies. At Miami Skin and Vein, we offer chemical peels with a variety of ingredients to exfoliate and rejuvenate the face and neck. This method of treatment removes the outer layer of skin cells, those that block pores, trap bacteria, and steal your vibrant complexion.
One of the advantages to chemical peels is that they are designed around unique needs. Performed by Dr. Patel himself, our peels are formulated with medical-grade ingredients ranging from salicylic acid to malic acid and several combinations of mild exfoliating agents. A periodic treatment can minimize the appearance of sun damage and fine lines and wrinkles while promoting healthy elasticity. Additional benefits include soothing acne-inflamed skin, reducing pore size and hyperpigmentation, and promoting a more youthful appearance. Chemical peels are mild, comfortable, and well-suited to complement other clinical treatments, such as Botox and dermal fillers.
We offer the following chemical peels:
Illuminize Peel by SkinMedica
Patients with minor concerns affecting the superficial layer of skin love the lightness of the Illuminize Peel. Formulated with malic acid, phytic acid, resorcinol, mandelic acid, and salicylic acid, this peel promotes texture, clarity, and a healthy glow. The gentleness of the light peel makes it perfect for the busy patient who does not want to experience noticeable flaking or redness.
Vitalize Peel by SkinMedica
Formulated with retinol, resorcinol, lactic acid, and salicylic acid, the Vitalize Peel can address mild to moderate concerns such as hyperpigmentation and sun damage. Patients with melasma, acne scarring, or wrinkles can benefit from this customized treatment. Because deeper tissues are targeted with the Vitalize peel, a few days of flaking should be expected.
Depending on the desired outcome, Dr. Patel may maximize the effect of chemical peel treatment by including microdermabrasion into the clinical care plan. Microdermabrasion gently removes surface cells, paving the way for the peel ingredients to penetrate the skin.
Peels can be performed in a series, scheduled several weeks apart, to maintain even tone and texture.
