You can choose from a number of different treatments that can help turn back the clock to give you exquisite, vibrant skin. The Vitalize Peel is a chemical peel that can help alleviate the signs of aging right from the dreaded crow’s feet, wrinkles, age spots, and fine lines. The best part is that this peel is suitable for any skin type.

Why Do You Need a Peel?
Living a life with blotchy skin can make you feel insecure and cause depression. Aside from the fact that a good chemical peel removes the dead cells in the body through a stringent exfoliation process, you get your mojo back. If you have dull looking skin and need to accelerate the tone, substances in the peel renew the balance in the skin making it look healthier with a uniform complexion.
Is the Peel a Good Choice for Your Skin?
In order to find out if the peel is a good choice for you, you will need to consult a dermatologist who will evaluate the condition of the skin and recommend the right peel. The right candidate for a Vitalize Peel will have moderate or regular imperfections on the skin.
If you are suffering from contact dermatitis, psoriasis, rosacea, eczema, shingles or any skin problem, a chemical peel may not be right for you. However, if the doctor feels you can handle it, based on a series of tests, you will feel way better as the texture of the skin improves at the very first sitting.
Chemical peels are typically short treatments and may require as little as 15-20 minutes to apply the solution. The natural reaction of every patient differs, one may feel a slight tingle or some burning which is a normal process occurrence, but it is temporary and should subside quickly.
After the Vitalize Peel
The skin will have a normal blush, which takes a couple of hours to subside. Immediately after the treatment, the skin takes on a yellowish tone and later the redness creeps in, which is normal. You can apply makeup after the peel, but you should make sure to avoid the harmful rays of the sun.
If your skin is severely damaged with excessive lines and spots, you may need a couple of sessions to ensure that the extent of the damage is slowly eradicated. Once the treatment is done, you will feel wonderful and look years younger with an excellent skin tone.
