Rejuvenate your skin with SkinMedica chemical peels in Portland, OR
Benefits of chemical peels
Chemical peels are used to gently but effectively accelerate the exfoliation of your skin to renew your complexion and reduce the appearance of skin imperfections and roughness. At Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center, we offer a variety of chemical peels, including SkinMedica products such as the SkinMedica Vitalize Peel®. This is a great chemical peel for mild to moderate signs of aging and skin damage, such as:
- Brown spots
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven tone
- Rough texture
- Sun damage
In addition, the Vitalize Peel is a great chemical peel for acne scars left long after old breakouts have subsided. Other SkinMedica peels include the Rejuvenize Peel™, which is appropriate for more moderate to severe imperfections in the skin, and the Illuminize Peel®, which helps restore more radiant, vibrant skin.
What to expect
When you come into the office, it typically only takes about 20 minutes to apply the peel, but we allocate extra time to make you comfortable and answer any questions that you have about the treatment, as well as to provide you with after-care instructions. A burning or tingling sensation during the peel is normal as it works to exfoliate your skin; usually, any discomfort subsides quickly. Afterwards, you may have a yellow tinge to your skin for a few hours, which can be followed by some redness that will go away after the peeling process is complete. The amount of time this takes varies by patient. We will provide you with thorough instructions on how to take care of your skin at home to expedite the healing process and protect your skin after your peel, including helping you identify which specific products and sunscreen to use for your unique skin. It is important to use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and limit your sun exposure for a week after your treatment. Once your skin has finished the peeling process, you can resume using your normal skincare products and routine.
