CHEMICAL PEELS & FACIALS
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is an intentional injury to the epidermis that stimulates a wound healing response. This response initiates cell turnover, stimulates the production of inner cellular hydration and growth factors. After a chemical peel, the skin will be smoother and younger looking.
Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, skin discoloration and scars — typically on the face. A chemical peel can be done alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures.
Chemical peels can be done at different depths . Light, medium or deep — depending on your desired results. Each type of chemical peel uses a different chemical solution. Deeper chemical peels produce more-dramatic results, but require a longer recovery period.
All our professional peels are Health Canada Approved.
Why Choose a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel can treat many skin problems. Depending on your skin concerns, we will choose a chemical peel in one of three depths:
Light chemical peel: A light (superficial) chemical peel removes the outer layer of skin (epidermis). It can be used to treat fine wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone and dryness. You might have a light chemical peel as often as every two to five weeks. Little to no recovery time.
Medium chemical peel: This type of chemical peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from portions of the upper part of your middle layer of skin (dermis). A medium chemical peel can treat wrinkles, acne scars and uneven skin tone. Can only be done 1-2 times year. Requires 1-2 weeks of recovery time. Full epidermal peeling.
What is a Facial?
A professional facial is designed not just to help you relax, but to help improve your skin. They can be customized for the face, neck and décolleté to prevent and treat common problems. Facials can:
Boost collagen production
Remove dead skin cells
Improve the appearance of fine lines and blemishes
Clear your pores
Moisturize and hydrate
Why Choose a Facial?
Facials are an excellent option if you are looking for no downtime. Chemical peels require down time from a few days to weeks depending on the strength of the peel. Facials allow you to recieve beautiful glowing skin, while treating certain concerns such as acne, dryness, blackheads etc. Facials allow vitamins and nutrients to infuse into the skin.
