Rejuvenize, Vitalize, and Illuminize Peels: What Are the Differences

A chemical peel is a popular and very effective way to rejuvenate skin. Chemical peels work to eliminate surface layers of dead and damaged skin by applying a chemical solution to the skin, resulting in a bright, more youthful complexion. Used to treat a variety of skin issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, and sun damage, the chemical peel is usually performed by a licensed skincare professional. Peels come in different strengths and types depending on your desired results.

Rejuvenize Facial Peel

The Rejuvenize chemical peel is a medium-depth procedure that uses an effective blend of acids to exfoliate skin and stimulate the body’s own process of collagen production. This solution is applied in layers, with a neutralizing agent used in between each layer to prevent harsh aftereffects. Moisturizer and sunscreen are applied to the skin after a thorough cleansing to protect delicate underlayers that have been exposed during the procedure.

Healing time for the Rejuvenize process typically takes between 3 to 7 days, during which time a patient may experience redness, mild swelling, and flaking of the skin. Reducing time in the sun and avoiding the use of makeup and harsh cleansers during healing time will optimize results.

Vitalize Facial Peel

The Vitalize chemical peel is a lighter, less invasive treatment that uses a unique combination of alpha-hydroxy acids and trichloroacetic acid to exfoliate the skin and improve fine lines, wrinkles, and even mild acne. These solutions are applied to the skin in a single layer and left on for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on your skin type and your desired results.

Downtime for the Vitalize is shorter in length, with most patients resuming normal levels of activity within 2 to 5 days. Mild redness, dryness, and flaking of the skin may be present; with proper skin care, you can expect to see an improvement in the overall texture and appearance of the skin. The Vitalize is ideal for people with mild to moderate hyperpigmentation and imperfections.

Illuminize Facial Peel

The Illuminize chemical peel is the least invasive of these procedures, using only a mild acidic solution to extract the top layers of skin. A mild blend of salicylic and mandelic acids helps brighten skin and improve tone and texture. One benefit of the Illuminize procedure is that it requires minimal downtime, allowing for a return to normal activities within a day. Safe for nearly all skin types, the Illuminize is used to treat mild skin irritations such as rosacea, sun damage, acne, and fine lines and wrinkles.
