Chemical Peels

Looking at the mirror, all you see is dull, blemish prone skin or mild lines, you should consider getting a Chemical Peel. Chemical peels help to restore skin texture and tone. After the peeling is over it reveals a smoother and radiant skin. Chemical peels also thicken the epidermis as a result of enhanced collagen production.

Chemical peels can be classified as superficial, medium or deep, depending on the depth of penetration of the peel and the ingredients used. Superficial peels exfoliate at the various levels of the epidermis. Medium depth peels treat the papillary dermis and dee peels to the mid-reticular levels. There is a longer downtime associated with deep peels and more chances of side effects. The side effects include photosensitivity, pigment changes and some scarring.

All the peels that we offer are appropriate for delicate neck and décolleté area, back, arms and hands. 

Most common indications for considering a peel treatment are:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Photodamage
  • Acne
  • Asphyxiated skin
  • Oily skin

At Laser Genesis Skin Clinic in Mississauga we specialize in superficial to medium depth peels.
