Glycolic acid, salicylic acid and combination acid peels, such as the Vitalize Peel, are used to treat actinic keratoses (precancerous lesions), uneven discoloration, sun damaged or aging skin. These chemicals disrupt the "glue" that holds skin cells together and allow the outermost layers of the skin to be shed gradually, revealing younger, healthier and smoother skin. Since these peels require little "downtime" they are appropriately labeled "lunchtime" peels. The key is that they allow you to return to work without taking any time off.
Your provider at AllPhases Dermatology will tailor treatment to you. The strength of each peel is tailored to the patient. Peels can be combined with other procedures, such as facelifts, for additional improvement to skin.
