Vitalize Peel


Vitalize Peel Northern Virginia

The Vitalize Peel® helps fight the effects of time, sun damage, and environmental assaults. This powerful yet non-damaging peel can take years off aging skin. You can do the peel in approximately 30 minutes in our office. This special formulation includes a unique blend of peeling agents: alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, resorcinol. As the “finishing touch” we also add in the use of a retinoic acid as well. Optimal benefits are seen with a series of peels used in combination with an appropriate home skin care regimen, However, you will see a measurable result even after just one peel.
