Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels in Bloomington, Illinois

When trying to address the effects of aging on the face and neck, many people are wary of surgery. That’s why more and more people opt for non-invasive options such as chemical peels for facial rejuvenation. Chemical peels use a chemical solution to initiate peeling of dead skin on the face. By peeling away this layer of dead skin, younger, smoother skin is exposed.

Chemical peels can be used on the face, hands, or the neck to reduce fine lines and wrinkles caused by aging and excessive sun exposure, and they can also reduce the appearance of mild scars, age spots, freckles, or dark patches, and can be used to treat certain types of acne.

 Types of Chemical Peels

 There are three different types of SkinMedica chemical peels offered at Oasis Medical Spa & Wellness, which all differ depending on how deeply the chemical is intended to penetrate the skin.

  • Illuminize Peel. These are the most superficial and mildest chemical peels, and can be used on all skin types. The SkinMedica  Illuminize peels utilize salicylic acid to rejuvenate the skin by improving its clarity, color and texture.   For many people, it can be utilized before a big event to make their skin “Red Carpet Ready” by increasing its glow and radiance.
  • Vitalize Peel. Comprised of both lactic and salicylic acid, along with a proprietary Vitalize Retinol Solution, this peel penetrates the the skin more deeply than the Illuminize, making it the most popular SkinMedica peel at Oasis Medical Spa & Wellness. With minimal downtime, it addresses visible signs of mild to moderate skin imperfections including the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation and melasma.
  • Rejuvenize Peel. As the strongest SkinMedica peel that produces very compelling results with moderate irritation, the Rejuvenize peel also has a combination of salicylic and lactic acid, along with SkinMedica’s proprietary Vitalize Retinol Solution.  At a higher percentage of each peeling agent, visible signs of moderate to severe skin imperfections including appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation and melasma are addressed with lasting results.
