Chemical peel is a treatment that uses a chemical solution that improves the appearance of skin through chemexfoliation. We use medical grade products for our chemical peels, Skinceuticals is our brand of choice. Our chemical peels are safe for most skin types and tone.
What is Chemical Peel
Chemical peel can treat the following
- Acne scars
- Skin discolouration
- Skin Rejuvenation
How does it work
Once the chemical peel is applied to the skin, it creates a controlled chemical burn with acids that removes the top layer of the skin by causing it to shed, skin grows back smoother and softer while helping lift off pigments and help with tone.
The following acids are used:
Glycolic acid: treats Hyper-pigmentation, aging and texture
Salicylic acid: acne and improves tone
What to expect
Your technician will wash your face and apply the peel on to your skin.
You might experience prickling, burning, peeling, some may not experience peeling.
How can you prepare for a chemical peel
Before your chemical peel procedure, you’ll first have a free consultation with one of our nurse. We will do a free consultation for you and get to know your needs and history of medication then decide what the best treatment option is for you. We will decide whether or not you will be a good candidate and then decide the peel intensity that is right for you.
Before a chemical peel, you must inform the specialist about your medication history and cannot:
Use sunscreen and one simple moisturizer to avoid skin irritation. We do not recommend tanning your skin 2 weeks before treatment and you should not have sun exposure for 2 weeks after treatment.

After a chemical peel, new skin comes out and is normally more sensitive to the sun, please make sure to wear a physical sun block every day. A physical sunblock should have the term “broad-spectrum” on the label, meaning it protects against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. SPF 30 or above is highly recommended.
