Everyone knows exfoliation is the key to better skin. If you’re able to slough off the damaged, dying outer layer of skin cells, you’ll reveal healthier, more vibrant skin beneath. Snakes do this all at once, shedding their entire skin. While it could be effective, if humans did that it would be creepy, akin to some sci-fi movie aliens.
Instead, our skin completely replaces itself every 27 days. We are constantly shedding skin cells. That’s what bloodhounds smell when tracking escaped convicts. And that’s what makes up the vast majority of dust in our living spaces.
Dr. Kearney now offers a new way to speed up the exfoliation process. It’s called RevePeel, and it’s a medium-depth peel that works to repair damaged skin for our San Diego patients.
What is RevePeel?
RevePeel is a true medium-depth peel that works to repair various skin problems, from age spots and sun damaged areas to acne scarring and fine lines. Our highly trained registered nurses perform the RevePeel in our beautiful San Diego offices.
What skin problems can RevePeel improve?
At Dr. Kearney’s, we use RevePeel on the face, neck, décolletage, chest, and backs of the hands. These are the skin issues it improves:
- Age spots
- Sun damaged skin
- Acne scarring
- Acne breakouts
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Large pores
- Poor texture
How is RevePeel done?
The RevePeel is applied in our office by our RNs. We apply the peeling agents and monitor them for 30-45 minutes. You then return home and leave the RevePeel on your skin for two to four hours. Then you wash off the peeling agent and move to the ReveSkin post-care kit, which supplies skin care materials to use the following week.
For the first one to two days after your RevePeel, your skin will look as if you have a mild sunburn. Then at around 48 hours, your skin will begin to lightly peel for another two days. On days four through six, you will have some heavy peeling. After that, you will have some additional mild peeling for another week.
This peeling will reveal the healthy, new, vibrant skin beneath. Plus, the body will get to work creating new skin cells. Our patients love the results they’re seeing from their RevePeels.
