The Vitalize and Rejuvenize Peels from SkinMedica® easily and effectively fight the effects of time, sun damage, and environmental assaults. These powerful, collagen -stimulating peels can take years off aging skin. It is best done twice yearly after the summer and winter seasons or following a course of laser therapy for sun damage. Acne clientele swear by these peels because of their Retinoic acid component that significantly reduces oil production, acne flares and diminishes scarring.
The peels address various skin conditions including pigmentation abnormalities, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, melasma, fine wrinkles, large pores, and acne and are safely performed on all skin types. A combination of lactic acid, salicylic acid, and retinoic acid create superior exfoliation to other chemical peels as it stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, tightening the skin and shrinking the pores. Because the formula is uniquely self -neutralizing, it is extremely well tolerated, leaving the skin immediately taut and without redness so that the downtime is limited to the peeling days.
It comes in 2 strengths, so first- timers are encouraged to start with the Vitalize peel at least once before they move up to the Rejuvenize peel.
This peel cannot be used on individuals with aspirin sensitivity or allergy
Revitalize Peel for the face – $275 Rejuvenize (stronger version) $300 Peel for the body depends on the size of the area to be treated.
What can I expect with the treatment: On a clean face I will use a solution to remove any oil that remains. Then I will apply 3 layers of the peel, one on top of the other until the skin is dry.
Will it burn? Because of the self- neutralizing properties of this peel, the sensation of burning is minimal, and in fact many clients are surprised at how mild it is. Additionally, there is minimal redness afterwards and most people go out to dinner or back to work without anyone noticing.
When will I peel? If the peel is put on on a Wednesday, the skin will look normal or a little tighter Wednesday and Thursday. Friday, you will start to peel around your mouth. Saturday and Sunday the whole face will be peeling. Monday there will be a little peeling around the periphery of the face.
How often can I do the peels? I think the best time to do the peel is at the end of the summer and at the end of the winter to clear all the dead skin and free the pores from the clogging nature of sunscreen. The peels can also be done sequentially once monthly for up to 5 sessions to really rejuvenate aging or acneic skin.

Dr. Jame’ will Change your Life! – Dr. Jame’ and the Wellpath staff are AMAZING. I started seeing Dr. Jame’ 8 years ago with crazy hairy legs/bikini/underarms and a sun damaged blotchy face. She has changed my life!!! Got rid of all my unwanted hair and I only need a touchup AT MOST once a year. I never shave. The dark spots on my face are gone (the result of IPL and peels) and my winkles have softened considerably with my recent few treatments of Refirme facial tightening. But, i have to say that the best thing about going to Wellpath is Dr. Jame’ herself. She seriously has the BEST bedside manner. Instead of feeling like you are having a treatment done, it’s like you are hanging out with your girlfriend or therapist (take your pick depending on what kind of day you are having!). Completely unpretentious medical spa with a Zen decor, the nicest staff, and a great new location. 100% recommend.

The Time Is Near – I have been going to the Wellpath since May 2008. I have dealt with vicious acne for 10 and a half years. After spending all this time associating with one doctor after another and being told by one, “there is nothing you get do about acne you got to live with it”, which is totally unacceptable and unprofessional. Of course I did not listen to that. I started to do my homework and came across Jame Heskett, someone I wish I met a long time ago. I have went under numerous Isolaz, IPL, and peels. With each passing treatment my skin has just gotten better and better. Now it is dramatically clear including dark pigments and pit marks. The service is great, Jame charges no consultation fee, answers questions along the way and the reliability is excellent. When it is time for your appointment, it is your time and your time only. Nothing matters but you. Jame takes her time to make sure, you get a full entire treatment. Everyone is so nice. No arguments, no hassles, no runarounds. Jame has taken such an immense weight off me that had took such a complete and total overall of my entire life. Jame is literally a “life saver”.

Great doctor, Amazing results, Zero Attitude — Best Spa Bar None! – II have been a client of Dr. Jame’s for almost four years and I recommend her and Wellpath without reservation. Dr. Jame is extremely knowledgeable and capable. I have had laser hair removal on most parts of my body and it has been more effective than I could have ever imagined. I have not had to shave my legs in years!!! She has changed this hairy Italian gal’s life! I also have had both IPL and peels done on my face for a good amount of sun damage and dark spots. The treatments have vastly improved both the texture and the glow of my skin. My mom always says that my skin has never looked better. I look more refreshed and my skin has literally been transformed. In addition to the amazing results from treatments, I also cannot say enough about Dr. Jame’s “bedside manner” and her wonderful staff. She REALLY cares about her clients and puts her heart and soul into making sure you are happy with the results. She really puts you at ease and she just exudes something that makes you feel completely relaxed. If you want a warm, friendly and down to earth place with zero attitude, a caring staff and an awesome and professional doctor, this is the place for you. P.S. My mom goes to Leda for eyebrow waxes every time she is in town and LOVES them.
