A facial peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. The skin that grows back after a chemical peel is smoother and younger looking.

One of the most frequently stated concerns we are asked “Can you regain my once blemish-free complexion?”
Many of us are concerned with different types of skin blemishes such as uneven dark patches, dark spots, annoying freckles or an uneven skin tone. As people age, sun damage can frequently appear on the back of hands, neck, chest and face. This common condition, also referred to as photo-ageing, is typically and mainly caused by sun exposure, resulting in the production of more melanin, the substance that gives your skin colour. Besides sun exposure, the process of ageing, acne and clogged pores can leave a person’s skin with an uneven skin tone, fine lines, scarring and a flawed complexion.
The good news is, long gone are the days of our skin being a clear indicator of our past and serving as a nagging reminder for us, and others, about how we have cared for our skin over the years. Patients can choose from a wide range of advanced skin treatments which have proven to be safe. Medical or chemical peels are among them.
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical skin peel is a medical procedure, which involves the controlled application of certain chemical solutions to the skin in order to dissolve the upper layer of the skin and remove dead skin cells. This then stimulates the production of new cells; new tissue emerges, and fresher skin is revealed, resulting in a younger, healthier appearance and smoother texture of the skin. Patients can feel their best again, while getting their skin tone, healthy glow and confidence back.
Chemical peels typically available are:
(1) mild or superficial peels
(2) medium peels and
(3) strong or deep peels.
How deep or strong your peels is varies based on the chemicals used, the strength of the chemicals used and the length of time the solution is applied. The chemical formula used can be adjusted based on the individual’s needs and skin type. Your therpist will consult with you prior to the peel in order to determine the best peel treatment for your concerns.
