The Enlighten™️ Peel is a new prescription level chemical peel and skin-lightening system. It is designed to help exfoliate the skin and promote skin cell turnover so the pores shrink, sun damage lifts, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed. With the Enlighten Peel, you can also lighten hyperpigmented skin, even for darker skin types with irregular pigmentation areas, or pitted acne scars, or as a way to prep the skin for laser treatments for other chemical peels.
How It Works
The Enlighten peel inhibits melanogenesis by paralyzing melanin production. It exfoliates the upper surface of the skin and is enhanced by lightening agents, and during the 2-step prescription peel that takes about 20-35 minutes, your discolored pigmentation is brought to the surface, which increases cell turnover. The peel goes even deeper to inhibit further hyperpigmentation. This treatment is done at our office, then the peel is left on the face for about 8-12 hours, where you can continue your aftercare at home.
Enlighten Peel Aftercare
Once you are home, and then there is a 28-day home care regimen to work against discoloration or skin blemishes. Diligent aftercare is necessary for optimal results, and Dr. Fakhre will go over your at-home follow-up treatment plan to ensure you are prepared for what to expect.
What It Treats
The Enlighten Skin Peel can effectively even out skin tone with targeted treatment to reduce or eliminate hyperpigmentation, melasma, blotchy patches, scarred skin, dull skin, freckles, and large pores. It is safe for every skin tone, including dark skin types. In fact, it has been called the best peel for ethnic skin. Patients with darker skin are at higher risk for hyperpigmentation from traditional peels, but the Enlighten Skin Peel is safe, easy, and there is limited downtime.
WHAT IS REVEPEEL?
The RevePeel is the newest addition to our line of skin care products. We have completely overhauled our chemical peel line to make way for this exciting new product that is not only safe, but effective. This is a medium depth peel. This means that you will have the effect of a stronger product without significant downtime. There are many ingredients in this peel that are designed to treat and prevent many common skin problems. For example, it
contains TCA (trichloroacetic acid), salicylic acid, lactic acid, phenol, and Croton oil. The oil balances the other caustic acids and allows a very controlled deposition of these chemicals throughout the superficial and deeper layers of your skin. The RevePeel has been described as both effective and comfortable by most patients.
WHY CHOOSE THE REVEPEEL?
When it comes to reducing hyperpigmentation, melasma, acne, and fine lines and wrinkles, the Reve peel results are absolutely superior when compared to the results of other medical grade chemical peels on the market. This is due to that revolutionary Croton oil-blended delivery system which allows the peel to be applied evenly (as opposed to just alcohol-based peels) and enables it to penetrate to deeper depths targeting buried damage and stubborn pigment. This unique delivery system reduces the risk of post procedure inflammation (post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, PIH) making the Reve Peel a safe choice for virtually all skin types. We also feel that there is a synergistic relationship between this chemical peel and retinol-based products like Retin products like Retin-A
The depth of your peel is totally customizable, allowing us to be more aggressive in the areas that have more damage, and more superficial on sensitive areas if needed. The peel is left on for 2 – 4 hours post application which you will rinse off with the gentle cleanser that comes as part of your 7 – day homecare kit that we will provide to you. During the following 1-2 days the sun damage and pigment will be brought to the surface in preparation to shed. The peeling process usually begins by the 3rd day. Over a total period 7 – 10 days your old damaged surface layers will peel off in sheets -literally erasing years off of your face revealing fresh, even toned, beautiful new skin. If you’re ready to make dull uneven skin a thing of the past the Reve Peel is just what you need. In most cases, 1 treatment as all you need, but some patients request a second peel. Of course, this is a patient dependent and results may vary
