A Medical Facial Peel is one of the safest and most effective treatments available to smooth and improve the texture of facial skin. A chemical peel can be used on its own, or in combination with other skin-care treatments. Skin conditions such as acne and cystic acne, discolouration, wrinkles, pigmentation and surface irregularities can all benefit from Chemical Peel treatments. We offer different levels of peels which depend on your specific skin conditions and goals for treatment, each will leave you with younger, clearer, and healthier-looking skin.
While the results of a peel are not permanent, they are long-lasting. And, depending upon your skin type and condition, and the type of chemical peel that you have, results will vary. Results are more noticeable after a series of treatments, and if other skin-care treatments—such as microdermabrasion—are used in conjunction with the facial peel.
Typically, a chemical peel causes little-to-no pain. Your skin might feel hot and tight, as it would after having been sunburned. Once the peel has been neutralized, your skin will feel fresh and smooth, without discomfort.
We usually recommend a series of three to five treatments. However, your doctor or nurse will be able to give you a more precise estimate of the number of treatments you will require after performing your skin assessment. This will also depend upon the condition of your skin, the type of peel you are having, and any other skin-rejuvenation treatments you are undergoing.
