Peels

It is well established that repeatedly peeling the top layers of the skin results in improvement of many skin defects. Fine lines and wrinkles, discolorations, age spots, acne, and large pores can all be reduced with medical peels. Medical peels greatly enhance the effects of other anti-aging therapies, such as laser treatments and Botox therapy. In general, the more aggressively the skin is peeled, the greater the potential benefits. However, more aggressive peels also have a greater incidence of side effects. Often, milder peels done at regular intervals will produce benefits nearly equal to deeper peels with little to no “down time”. At Apex, we offer 2 different types of peels to suit your needs.

Superficial peeling is accomplished with the revolutionary DiamondTome resurfacing system. Unlike older Microdermabrasion systems which use a stream of crystals blown over the skin to “sandblast” the skin, the DiamondTome uses a selection of wands coated with actual diamond grit and a special vacuum to remove the dead superficial layers of the skin. The DiamondTome allows for precise judgment of peel depth to give you the best possible results. The lack of loose crystals makes the DiamondTome preferable for use before laser procedures.

Slightly deeper, but still mild peeling is obtained with the Vitalize Multi-Acid Peel. This process is, again, comfortable, and produces a reliable peeling and flaking of the skin 2 to 4 days after the procedure. Other than sun avoidance and repeated skin moisturizers for the week after the procedure, there are no other major instructions after the Vitalize Peel. A series of 3 to 4 treatments is usually needed, with maintenance every few months.

The above medical peels are often performed in various combinations, often with other procedures, to produce maximum benefits with the least amount of “down time.”
