Jeune Skin Care: Ask the Experts
Q. Which peel would you recommend for acne scars on the upper back and shoulders? I would like to try a series of these before any kind of laser treatments.
A. We recommend the Vitalize Peel from SkinMedica (available at UW Health Transformations Jeune Skin Care). This is an excellent peel to smooth the skin texture and also help improve discoloration that is left from acne lesions.
This is an in-office procedure that uses a blend of lactic acid, salicylic acid, resorcinol and retinoic acid. A series of 3-6 treatments is recommended, though improvement can be noticed after just one peel.
Because of the salicylic acid in this peel, it is not recommended for individuals with an aspirin allergy. Retin-A, retinols and Differin must be stopped one week prior to peel.
The Vitalize Peel results in minimal downtime - 2-3 days of light flaking or peeling.
