It's Spring! Time for Winter Skin Renewal! - Capizzi MD

Ladies and Gentlemen, spring is officially here, which means summer’s not far behind – it’s time to refresh your skin from winter and get it glowing! Skin tends to lose its natural, moisturizing oils during the winter. As the skin loses its moisture, the outer layer may feel dry, itchy, and tight. Remember, skin renewal is just as important as exercise, so, as you start hitting the gym and running paths to get in shape for bikini season, remember to get your skin ready as well.

Get back your Youthful Skin

As I often say, our skin is not only our largest organ, it is a map of our years on this earth, documenting our joys as well as our struggles. When we are young, we take our skin for granted. And as we get older, and our skin becomes less resilient, we need to take additional steps to achieve a youthful complexion. With that in mind, I’m recommending several age-defying skincare treatments that can turn truly back the hands of time.

To begin with, choose one of the 3 levels of SkinMedica® chemical peels that suit your skin renewal needs. The chemical peels remove the top layer of dull skin and stimulate the dermis to improve elasticity and collagen, leading to tighter, brighter and lighter skin. We’re currently offering:

  • Level 1 – Illuminize, a.k.a., the “lunchtime peel,” is your best choice if you want to avoid downtime and get radiant looking skin immediately. This peel is ideal for individuals who want something more intense than a facial but cannot have the downtime of peeling.
  • Level 2 – Vitalize – is our most popular peel which exfoliates your dead skin resulting in less acne, less acne scarring, fewer brown spots and less sun damage. Two days after this peel is applied the skin starts to shed from the chin up to the forehead, for a duration of about 2-3 days.
  • Level 3- Rejuvenize – is the strongest of the three and is ideal for those who have already had other peels and are now tolerant to medical grade facials. This peel may result in some mild redness and an increase of skin peeling two days after application, lasting about 3-4 days.

Preparing for Dermal Fillers?

Another great benefit of the chemical peels is that they “smooth the way” for dermal fillers such as Sculptra®. Sculptra is designed to address “smile lines” by stimulating your skin’s own natural collagen production. It helps to renew skin’s inner structure and increase facial volume that has been lost to aging.

Taking advantage of the pre-injectables benefits of skin renewal treatments such as peels is part of my “Capizzi Method” – making sure my patients get optimal results from every procedure we perform, to reach the goals set in their consultation. My team and I look forward to helping you reach your beauty goals this spring!
