Peels at SpaGo MedSpa
Rejuvenate Your Skin
WHAT ARE CHEMICAL PEELS?
Throughout your life there are many factors that impact the health of your skin including (but not limited to): sun damage, medication, stress, hormone changes, muscle movement, diet/environment, background/heritage, pollution, cosmetics, and pre/post pregnancy. All of these factors can lead to a loss in collagen, loss of elasticity, skin roughness, fine lines and wrinkles, acne & scarring, and pigmentation irregularities.
Chemical peeling is the use of acidic substances to carefully remove the outermost layer of the skin. This is designed to give your skin a fresh start and help reboot the health of your skin in a minimally invasive way.
At SpaGo Medical Spa we use the family of medical grade VI Peels® and SkinMedica Peels to achieve optimal results.

HOW DO I KNOW IF A CHEMICAL PEEL IS FOR ME?
A chemical peel, especially a medical grade one such as VI Peel®, reduces current damage and the effects are prolonged significantly with proper skincare. Medical grade peels give your skin the fresh start that it needs. They are designed to shed the outer layer of your skin, which means that it becomes easier for your skin to heal and reboot by enhancing cell turnover.
Chemical peels are suitable for various skin types and can be used on areas of the face and body. Results on the face can be seen in as little as 7 days and on the body as little as 10 days.
Chemical peels can be combined with Botox® (the day before), dermal fillers (the day of), laser treatments (the day of) and/or microneedling (4 weeks after) for even more rejuvenating results.

Transform your skin with a popular chemical peel that can unveil fresher and younger skin in one treatment. SkinMedica® Vitalize peels stimulate collagen production and create radiant skin results without a long recovery process. SkinMedica® Vitalize Peel is an ideal treatment for men and women that want to refresh their appearance from the inevitable signs of aging or sun damage. SkinMedica® Vitalize Peel can also help treat some mild forms of acne.
This peel is much stronger than the Vitalize Peel™ and is appropriate for patients with moderate to severe skin imperfections that result from skin aging and sun exposure, such as fine lines and wrinkles and uneven skin tone and texture. The Rejuvenize Peel™ also addresses skin surface irregularities that can be caused by acne scarring or pigmentary changes. They can be applied in as little as 15 minutes and remain remain on your skin (self-deactivating in approximately 4 hours). Peeling occurs on days 2-5 and can often be covered by make-up or a tinted suncreen.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT DURING TREATMENT?
Procedure takes about 30 min
You will experience slight redness and irritation
Peeling will begin on about Day 3 for facial areas and Day 6 for other areas.
I recommend having some Aquafor available to moisturize the skin during the peeling process.
Downtime for peels is minimal. Peeling for the facial area is seen during Days 3-7 and for body areas during Days 6-10. You will receive rigorous post-peel instructions as well as a home care kit with the ViPeel. It is essential that you avoid intense exercise, saunas, hot water and direct sun exposure for 3-4 days after the peel has been applied.
HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT LAST?
Your skin will show results after about 1 week and will continue to improve with proper skin care regimen. We recommend doing about 3 peels spaced 4-6 weeks apart for serious cases and a maintenance peel seasonally.
