SkinMedica® Chemical Peels

BioAge Health is a regenerative medicine clinic in the Twin Cities, offering two valuable SkinMedica® chemical peel treatments to our clients, helping resurface and restore a youthful appearance to the face and skin. Chemical peeling is a procedure that produces striking results through heavily accelerated skin exfoliation. Chemical substances target areas of imperfections to achieve healthier, renewed skin and a smooth, even complexion. Explore our two most popular Twin Cities chemical peel treatments below:

SkinMedica Illuminize Peel®

At BioAge Health, or registered skincare clinicians recommend the SkinMedica Illuminize Peel® to first-time chemical facial patients or those with mild skin imperfections looking for an appropriate solution. This option is our lightest peel, making it an excellent choice for clients requiring a less robust approach to skin resurfacing. With the SkinMedica Illuminize Peel® treatment, you receive:

  • Corrections to minor skin imperfections
  • Smoother, tighter skin
  • Even skin tone and complexion
  • Restored vibrancy to your face and skin
  • Noticeable aesthetic improvements
SkinMedica Vitalize Peel®

If you need a deeper, more dramatic treatment option, the SkinMedica Vitalize Peel® is perfect for patients with any skin type or skin imperfection ranging from mild to moderate. The entire process only takes about 20 minutes to complete, with a handheld fan helping to minimize any minor discomfort or tingling sensations our clients sometimes experience. With the Vitalize Peel®, you’ll see the following results:

  • Improvements to overall skin condition
  • Diminishing wrinkles and fine lines
  • Smoother texture
  • More even complexion
  • Reduction in discoloration
  • Improved skin clarity

FAQ: All About Chemical Peels

The team at BioAge Health will provide a thorough explanation of all chemical peels and treatments during your first appointment. However, here at some of the most commonly asked questions we hear from first-time clients considering a SkinMedica® chemical peel:

1. What are chemical peels used to treat?

Both of the SkinMedica treatments offered by the certified Twin Cities chemical peel providers at BioAge Health bring a plethora of positive impacts to our patients. Illuminize® and Vitalize® chemical peels are proven to reduce the appearance of minor skin imperfections, wrinkles, fine lines, discoloration due to sun damage, and other pigmentary irregularities.

2. Is there anything I need to do to prepare for a chemical peel?

Like any other skincare treatment that increases sensitivity, clients should take care to avoid any harsh products or procedures that might leave them more susceptible to negative side effects or ineffective results. Speak with Dr. Kodama and the team of Twin Cities skin care specialists to learn more about how to prepare for either of the SkinMedica® chemical peel treatments.

3. How often can I undergo a chemical peel?

Treatments with the SkinMedica Illuminize Peel® system can be repeated every two weeks until desired results are achieved. A series of three or more peels recommended. For the Vitalize Peel®, we typically believe it best that treatments be repeated every 3-4 weeks, with a series of 3 to 6 peels recommended overall.

4. Are there any adverse side effects or downtime to be aware of after treatment?

Mild to moderate redness and discomfort or temporary discoloration of the skin are typical after chemical peel treatment. After receiving an Illuminize Peel®, there is no downtime and no visible peeling. Occasionally, some patients show flaking 3-4 days after the procedure. You may resume the regular use of retinol and alpha-hydroxy acids products after about five days.

With the Vitalize Peel®, the skin may feel tight until peeling starts. Flaking and peeling generally begin 48-72 hours after the procedure, lasting 2 to 5 days. Frequently apply moisturizer to control the flaking of your skin, and feel free to resume regular use of retinol and alpha-hydroxy acid products once peeling is complete.
