Chemical peels

The chemical peel process, also known as chemexfoliation or derma-peeling, is an effective technique to improve the appearance of the face, neck, chest, hands and even arms and legs.

A carefully selected mix of chemical peel solutions are applied to various areas of skin, which produce a separation and peeling of the skin's outer layers. This stimulates the production of new skin from beneath.

Most chemical peels are performed as outpatient procedures at Afterglow Medical Aesthetics & Skin Care. Depending on your skin type and the desired results, we may recommend a superficial, medium or deep chemical peel.

Chemical peels are individualized according to your unique skin condition. For example, the Vitalize peel is a medical peel only available in a doctor's office. It's designed specifically for individuals with acne. We have a specialized hydrating Pumpkin Peel specifically for menopausal and perimenopausal women, Ultra Peel for exfoliation, Rosacea Peel for ruddy complexion, and much more. Chemical peel skin rejuvenation treatments are safe, effective and leave you with glowing skin.

Vitalize Peel

The Vitalize Peel is a unique blend of retinoic acid, alpha-hydroxy acids, resorcinol and other active cosmeceutical ingredients, creating one of the safest, strongest medical peels for treating acne. Extensive peeling begins within 48 hours and begins the process of skin rejuvenation. The Vitalize Peel can be repeated at three-week intervals for maximum benefits and is recommended as a great way to jump-start a healthy skin care routine.
