Smooth away those early signs of aging with this popular skin peel.

No matter whether you spent years worshipping the sun or you are just getting older, it’s a fact of life that our skin will change too. As a result, we will notice more lines and wrinkles forming, which can make us feel self-conscious about the way we look. If you want to reduce and even eliminate some of these signs of aging our Morristown, Bridgewater, Mt. Arlington and Liberty Corner, NJ, dermatologists offer a popular chemical peel that can help you achieve more youthful results.

What is a Vitalize Peel?

This procedure uses a special solution that, when applied to the skin, deeply exfoliates and removes the outermost surface of the skin, which is often the most damaged layer. By removing this outer layer we can reveal healthier, younger and more radiant skin underneath.

A chemical peel is great for treating lines and wrinkles, as well as uneven skin tone and poor texture. Our skin doctors offer different treatment strengths, depending on the type and severity of the issues you wish to treat.

What should I expect during my chemical peel?

The peel itself only takes about 20 minutes. Some patients report feeling a slight burning or tingling sensation when the solution is applied. This is completely normal and the sensation should only last a few minutes. This peel can be repeated every 3-4 weeks, as necessary, and the majority of patients will see results anywhere between 3-6 treatments.

Who is a good candidate for a Vitalize Peel?

Anyone dealing with mild-to-moderate skin problems as a result of aging or sun damage can often benefit from this chemical peel. This includes anyone who wants to smooth away or reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while also evening out skin tone and improving texture. In some cases, it can even reduce the appearance of acne scars and hyperpigmentation. This treatment is effective and safe on all skin types.

Are you interested in learning more about the Vitalize Peel and whether you are an appropriate candidate for treatment? If so, it’s the perfect time to call Affiliated Dermatologists. With offices in Morristown, Bridgewater, Mt. Arlington and Liberty Corner, NJ, we are happy to help you get the radiant skin you deserve.

What your skin doctor in Bridgewater, Liberty Corner, Morristown, and Mt. Arlington wants you to know

If your skin looks dull, it’s time to rejuvenate it. If you are experiencing the early signs of vitalize peelaging, it’s time to turn back the clock. Now, you can have smooth, beautiful skin again thanks to Vitalize Peel, a go-to treatment to improve the appearance of your skin.

Your skin doctors at Affiliated Dermatologists & Dermatologic Surgeons want to share the facts about this effective skin treatment. They have offices in Bridgewater, Liberty Corner, Morristown and Mt. Arlington, NJ, to serve you.

Vitalize Peel can turn back the hands of time and clear up your skin. Vitalize Peel can:

  • Diminish the look of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Correct uneven skin tone and pigmentation
  • Diminish the appearance of sun damage and scaly patches
  • Diminish age spots and freckles
  • Clear up acne and acne scarring

Vitalize Peel uses Retinol and other substances to increase the level of skin exfoliation, revealing the firmer, smoother skin underneath. Vitalize peel works well on your face and neck to give you a younger, more lifted look.

A Vitalize Peel treatment takes about 45 minutes with 20 minutes required for the application. You might feel a slight tingling or burning sensation, but treatment is usually well tolerated. It’s important to remember not to use any products which can increase skin sensitivity before and after the procedure.

You will see immediate results after just one treatment, and optimal results after three to six treatments, depending on the degree of skin damage present. To maintain your results, it is recommended to use skin care products in the SkinMedica line.

If your skin looks tired and dull, or if you have pigmentation or scarring issues or signs of skin damage, Vitalize Peel is the right choice for you.

Get your glow on!

Do you have dullness, pigmentation, acne, sun damage, or aging skin? Want to get that nice glow that is virtually pain-free with minimal down time? The Vitalize Peel by SkinMedica may be a great option for you!

The Vitalize Peel is a chemical peel that can be used on any skin type for mild to moderate skin imperfections. The combination of ingredients can help reduce signs of aging (fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage), create a radiance of your skin, and helps with acne prone skin, pigmentation and even melasma.

Are you glowing yet!

This procedure takes about 15-30 minutes, and you can sit back and relax as the 3 steps are applied to your desired skin area (face, neck, chest or hands). Patient response varies from pain-free to temporary mild burning. You will leave the office with glowing skin, only to get better with time.  The peeling process (bye-bye old, dull skin!) typically lasts for 2-5 days, and reveals your best looking skin when the peeling is complete. Some redness is normal until peeling is complete. A series of Vitalize peels is recommended every 3-4 weeks and we will tailor a regimen specific to you for ongoing results and maintenance.
