For more than 100 years, chemical peels have created an even and controlled shedding of damaged skin cells. Each year, thousands of these treatments are performed in the United States, including Naples, Florida. In the office of Dr. Mark Prysi, a chemical peel is applied to the skin to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new skin cells—tightening the skin, reducing wrinkling and restoring a more youthful appearance.
What can a chemical peel do for me?
Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck or hands. They can be used to:
▪ Reduce fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
▪ Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
▪ Improve the appearance of mild scars
▪ Treat certain types of acne
▪ Reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills
▪ Improve the look and feel of skin
It’s important to remember that a chemical peel is not a substitute for a facelift or a brow lift. It cannot correct excessively wrinkled or sagging skin. But, in many cases, a chemical peel is performed in conjunction with these procedures for a fresher and more youthful appearance. Dr. Prysi offers several kinds of chemical peels.
Appropriate for first-time chemical peel patients or patients looking for a gentle superficial peel, this non-invasive chemical peel utilizes a novel approach to chemical peeling with a newer generation of alpha-hydroxy acids (mandelic and malic acid) in combination with phytic acid and commonly used peeling agents (salicylic acid and resorcinol) to maximize skin rejuvenating effects with low irritation.
The Illuminize Peel:
▪ Enhances skin glow and radiance
▪ Helps restore a more youthful appearance
▪ Improves clarity, color and skin texture
▪ Minimal downtime and discomfort
▪ Little or no visible peeling
The Vitalize Peel is ideal for treating aging, melasma, sun damaged and acne prone skin. It contains a proprietary blend of ingredients to help rejuvenate the skin and achieve visible improvement after one treatment, with optimal results after a series of treatments. The Vitalize Peel combines resorcinol, lactic, salicylic and retinoic acid to offer a dramatic improvement in texture and tone. The renewal process stimulates collagen production, improves pigmentation, acne and melasma. Your skin will appear healthier and more youthful with minimal downtime.
The most intensive peel, Rejuvenize Peel, contains salicylic acid, lactic acid, resorcinol, panthenol and isoceteth-20. This peeling solution, combined with a Retinol Solution, can substantially improve the appearance of the skin.
