Our skin regenerates itself every 28 days, leaving dead skin cells on the surface. Without proper exfoliation can cause pore blockages leading to breakouts and uneven texture. Abrasive physical exfoliants, while effective at removing unwanted dead skin, create little scratches in your face, causing irritation and making your pores more vulnerable to bacteria and dirt. The best way to exfoliate your skin is by using chemical peels because they rely on acidic components that can get deep into your pores and dissolve the dead skin cells.
What is Illuminize Peel®?
Illuminize Peel® is a perfect introduction to chemical peels. It is SkinMedica's® the lightest formulation, suitable for first-time patients who are looking for a gentle peel to achieve brighter radiant skin. Illuminize Peel® is a cocktail of Salicylic, Mandelic, and Malic acids, which are great at removing dead skin cells, reducing inflammation, and hyperpigmentation. The treatment will fight unwanted breakouts, clear out your pores, and give your skin a natural healthy glow.
Who can benefit from Illuminize Peel®?
This treatment addresses a wide range of concerns associated with visible imperfections caused by sun damage and aging, such as fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. It is also a great procedure for acne-prone skin, as it can reach deep into the pores and remove any breakout-causing dirt and bacteria. Illuminize Peel® is a perfect procedure for clients with minor imperfections or those who are just starting to explore the benefits of chemical peels.
What can you expect from the treatment?
Your skin will be looking healthy and glowing, however, some redness is common, and it normally subsides after a few hours. Due to the gentle nature of the Illuminize Peel®, you should not be experiencing any major peeling after the treatment. There is no preparation or downtime associated with the procedure. We recommend getting the Illuminize Peel® every 2-3 weeks to achieve maximum benefit.
Chemical peels make your skin very vulnerable to sunlight, so we recommend wearing daily full spectrum SPF. Your post-treatment skin care routine should include gentle cleansers and creams. Try to stay away from using retinoids or acidic cosmetic products for a couple of weeks after the peel to reduce the risk of irritation.
