FAQs about Vitalize and Rejuvenize Peels

How much peeling should patients expect from Vitalize or Rejuvenize Peels?

The degree of peeling may vary depending on the individual’s skin type and skin condition at the time of the peel. Peeling can range from mild flaking to peeling in sheets. Regardless of the amount of peeling, the skin is still sloughing off at an accelerated rate which will result in the following benefits: improvement of skin tone and texture as well as diminishment of fine lines and wrinkles.

What causes variations in the amount of peeling?

There are a number of reasons why some patients may not observe visible peeling each time they receive a peel. The reasons may include:

  • Patients with severe sun-damaged skin may require 1 0r 2 treatments before the peeling becomes substantial.
  • Severely sun-damaged skin has a rough texture and increased epidermal thickness.

These clients will initially see a minimal amount of peeling in some cases, peeling will not be observable to the naked eye. More peeling will occur with subsequent peels.
