Chemical peels are simple and effective ways to gently resurface and clean up the skin. Medical grade peels can improve skin texture, reduce acne, help control oiliness, lighten sunspots & melasma, improve dryness and minimize fine lines and pores. After a skin assessment, we choose the peel that is best for you.

How it works:
A medical grade acidic product is applied to the skin in a controlled manner. The ph of the product helps “lift” the dead skin cells thereby revealing the fresher cells underneath. It is generally recommended to do a series of 3-5 peels every 2-4 weeks with a maintenance of 1 every 4-12 weeks depending on skin issues we are tackling.
You should avoid waxing 7 days before a peel and stop using topical retinoids or retinols 3 days prior to the peel. Avoid a peel if you have had a recent cold sore and let the Skin Health Therapist know if you are prone to getting cold sores so that area can be avoided.
What to expect:
The appropriate peel will be chosen for you after an assessment is done. Redness and a feeling of very tight skin is normal right after the treatments. You may experience no downtime or you may feel tightness, dryness, flakiness and possible peeling at days 3-5. Skin is usually back to normal within a week. Immediately after a peel you should avoid sun exposure and makeup. Wearing a daily broad spectrum sunscreen daily is a necessary part of post care. Your Skin Health Therapist will recommend one for you.
What our clients are saying:
I loved when my skin started to flake off, it felt like I was removing years of neglect. S.R.
I was very nervous about doing a chemical peel but I really wanted to change the appearance of my skin. After it was done I had very very dry skin with no flaking for about 5 days but then, wow. The lines under my eyes were smoother and my skin colour was more even. I even used less foundation. I now see the benefit. B.C.
