As the name suggests, chemical peels peel off old skin so new layers can grow in their place. This controlled removal ranges in strength, from superficial peels that use more mild acids to deep peels that penetrate several layers of skin. LEARN MORE ›

I had a series of 3 vitalize peels over the course of 3 months and my skin has drastically improved. Before I did the peels I had puffiness and lines under my eyes, and uneven skin tone. Now tone is great and the puffiness doesn't show unless I don't get enough rest and even then it... READ MORE

This is a great alternative to harsher TCA peels if you have sensitive skin. The peel is superficial, yet aggressive enough to remove dead skin cells, blackheads, superficial lines, and shrink pore size. The stinging during treatment is less intense than with other peels. The actual peeling... READ MORE

I get Vitalize peels in the fall/winter months. Pros- quickly, not very painful, great skin afterwards (no acne, less wrinkles, overall glowing complexion) I don't know for sure but I feel it helps sun damage (teen years in Arizona sun and tanning beds- yikes) Cons- on day 2 or 3 you... READ MORE

A very tough procedure both mentally and physically. This is not an easy thing to go through and I have had several other cosmetic surgeries in the past. The result was worth it, but you need to be very prepared mentally to take this on. The pain is manageable, but there are aspects that are... READ MORE

This is a chemical peel of come sort - it's not natural. In essence it looks easy and looks as though it's going to work. I am a black woman and purchased this to get rid of spots and get an even skin tone. What went wrong: I applied as instructed and left the eyes area. After I... READ MORE

Hi I just had a 20% salicylic acid peel at a medi-spa on my skin for acne scarring and to even my skin tone. It has been two days since and I have noticed some of my scars are getting darker as well as my skin feeling tighter and dry.I had it to treat my shallow hyper-pigmented acne scars that... READ MORE

My primary doctor (at the time) was doing laser and derm practices. He had advertised medical grade chemical peels. I called the office and went in for a patch test. He did a 30% TCA peel near my ear area. There wasn't much action when i had gone it to get it checked 4 days later. When I had... READ MORE

My aesthetician recommended the PCA Oxygenating Trio treatment and so far it seems fine except for my neglect in post treatment.I had a mild chemical peel done today for the first time and afterwards went...

Using the peel and the other treatment I did see the acne dissapear but I think I may have overdid the chemical peels. So depending on what my face looks like after the redness goes away I may keep seeing my Dr.I am currently being treated for Acne with Doxycycline Hyclate 100mg, 5% Benzoyl... READ MORE

I decided to have the chemical peel done because I was told by a medical spa it is a great procedure to do at my age (26) to improve my skin, making it firmer, correcting the pigmentation and improving wrinkles. So, I have tried it 3 times in 3 months and this 3rd time, my skin feels like it... READ MORE

Lots of acne around chin area, sides of face. some cystic. Some red scars/ skin blotchiness.The chemical peel and laser is going good so far (2 peels, 1 laser). But I doubt it is a "cure". Its probably temporary unfortunately.Con, too expensive and I don't want to be sucked into a... READ MORE

The healing period was extremely painful but I know have an unsightly scar that extends up to my collarbone. it is almost impossible to dress normally. This has been a big challenge and a...

It feels like your face is on fire. but the acid is only left on for 15 minutes-ish. So its not too hard to deal with. But it leaves your skin dry, flakey, red and it takes a few days to recover.I had a salicylic acid peel on Thursday and my skin has been flakey as expected, but is it okay to... READ MORE

I have had four chemical peels in the last few months, with virtually no peeling or any sort of benefit, and I'm confused as to how this could be the case. The first three peels I had were light Jessner solutions (done with the intention that I'd be able to be back at work in a few days). The... READ MORE
