Don’t let the name intimidate you, chemical peels can be a great source of rescue and relief for your skin! We know that peels used to have somewhat of a scary reputation, and leave skin raw and peeling, however times have changed. Let’s go over the different types of peels we offer here at The Spa at West Glen, and which might be right for you and your skin journey.

Skinmedica Illuminize Peel 

The Illuminize Peel is a surface peel that uses a combination of alpha-hydroxy and phytic acids to tighten skin and add a beautiful, healthy-looking glow. 

The Illuminize Peel offers an allover improvement to the skin’s texture and color.

Chemical peel options can be a low risk option, as they are not as invasive as other options.

SkinMedica Vitalize Peel

Powerful alpha-hydroxy acids help the Vitalize Peel reduce lines, wrinkles, and roughness, revealing smoother, more resilient skin.

The amazing qualities of the alpha-hydroxy acids help generate skin cells that are evenly pigmented, leading to skin that is much smoother to the touch. 

This peel also encourages healthy collagen growth for long-lasting, noticeable results.

Skinmedica Rejuvenize Peel

This peel penetrates the skin’s deeper layers for more comprehensive improvement. 

Reduce acne, discoloration, and roughness while smoothing fine lines and wrinkles with the use of this peel treatment

The ingredients within this peel will help to refresh your skin while unclogging your pores, while product from the peels last longer on your skin than a topical treatment or product. 

Double Peel

The Double Peel begins with a session of microdermabrasion to remove the outermost layer of skin. Our aestheticians follow up with a Vitalize Peel. 

The microdermabrasion allows the peel to penetrate deeper for amplified results, making this combined approach popular with skincare patients. If you want to introduce healing, you can try a microneedling treatment like this RF microneedling in Woodridge, IL. Chemical peels work to remove damaged layers of skin, and microneedling works by inducing a healing process that replaces damage by filling it in with collagen.

Aestheticians like the ones at Ageless Skin Rejuvenation or AuraeMD are eager to help you choose the best combination of treatments to make your spa day special.
