In Depth Look at SkinMedica Medical Grade Peels
What Is SkinMedica?
SkinMedica is an medical-grade brand that contains a variety of chemical peels. These peels target fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, melasma, rough texture, and dull skin.
SkinMedica peels are available in three different levels: light, medium, and deep. Each level is designed to address different skin concerns and requires different amounts of downtime.

Vitalize Peel: The Vitalize Peel is a medium-depth peel. It is stronger than the Illuminize Peel and is used to treat more moderate skin concerns, such as deeper wrinkles, acne scarring, and melasma. Medium peels typically require a few days of downtime.
Rejuvenize Peel: The Rejuvenize Peel is a deep peel. It is the strongest type of SkinMedica peel and is used to treat severe skin concerns, such as deep wrinkles, sun damage, and acne scarring. Deep peels typically require a week or more of downtime.
