What Chemical Peel We Use?

We use different types of acids in our chemical peel procedures, including glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid and more. These acids help to penetrate the outer layers of the skin to exfoliate dead cells and speed up cell regeneration. This process helps to reveal brighter and healthier-looking skin while also giving it a more even tone.We understand that everyone’s skin is unique, so our treatments are designed with your safety in mind- all chemicals used during the procedure will be carefully monitored in order to ensure that you only receive what’s necessary for optimal results and minimal side effects. After your chemical peel treatment at Albany Cosmetic & Laser Centre in Edmonton, your skin will look brighter and have a more youthful appearance.

What is a Chemical Peel, and how does it work?

Chemical peels are similar to HydraFacials in that they primarily focus on exposing healthy skin. Chemical peels remove the layer of dead cells and environmental impurities and debris. The peel will help the skin renew itself and produce a new epiderms layer to replace the peeled one. It is a very common treatment for several cosmetic concerns, including:

  • Fine wrinkles appear around the eyes and the mouth.
  • Damage caused by the sun
  • Aging
  • superficial atrophic scars
  • mild acne
  • Discoloration of the skin
  • Skin with a rough texture

Chemical peels are used in conjunction with other resurfacing procedures such as microdermabrasion and carbon peel to improve the results. It can help give your skin texture, especially if you have a limited budget.

Chemical Peel FAQs

A chemical peel is a procedure in which an acid solution is applied to the skin and left for a few moments to remove old skin cells, revealing brighter and smoother skin underneath. Chemical peels can be used to improve the texture and appearance of the skin on the face, neck, hands, and chest. Commonly used ingredients in a chemical peel include glycolic acid, lactic acid, salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), phenol, and resorcinol.Chemical peels are beneficial for those looking to diminish hyperpigmentation, reduce wrinkles, reduce age spots or other forms of discoloration due to sun damage or acne scarring. Chemical peels also help to stimulate collagen production and exfoliate dead skin cells from the top layer of skin. This leads not only to an improved look but also increased moisture levels in the skin providing more texture balance and tone.
The frequency with which you receive chemical peels depends on your individual goals including your age and lifestyle factors. Generally speaking light treatments such as mild glycolic peels can be done every 1-2 weeks while deeper treatments such as TCA or phenol may need at least 1-2 months between additionsl sessions for recovery time. It is important to speak with an experienced skincare professional who can provide you with advice about which type of peel would work best for your case as well as how often it should be done for optimal results.
Yes, depending on the intensity of the treatment, there may be some associated downtime with a chemical peel ranging from several days to several weeks, depending on the type of peel you have received and what area it was applied to.

Types Of Chemical Peels

Superficial peels

This peel is low in potency and has only a superficial effect on all skin types. It is made up of either a diluted liquid containing glycolic acid or solid carbon dioxide. Superficial peels have shorter recovery times and are less expensive.

Deep peels

This peel penetrates multiple layers of the skin. It is only used for facial procedures and is also known as croton oil peel or to bleach darker skin. As a result, the treatment is usually repeated every 5 years.

Chemical peel with HydraFacial

A chemical peel with HydraFacial is a great way to improve the overall look and feel of your skin. This type of procedure uses a combination of gentle, specialized exfoliating acids to break down damaged or aging skin cells and reveal fresher, younger looking skin underneath. The result is a more even tone and texture, improved clarity, reduced hyperpigmentation, and an overall smoother complexion. What sets this particular facial treatment apart from other methods is that it combines the power of chemical exfoliation with the delivery of nourishing serums and antioxidants through its unique Vortex-Fusion technology. As a result, not only are you getting rid of old cells that are clogging up your pores but also providing deep hydration while stimulating collagen production for all-around healthy skin renewal. Plus, the HydraFacial process is non-invasive so there’s no downtime or irritation associated with it – just glowing results!

Medium peels

This type of peel is more sophisticated than superficial peels and will almost certainly result in second-degree burns. Medium peels also promote epidermal and upper dermal regeneration. We provide a stream of chilled air, a mild analgesic, and trichloroacetic acid to alleviate pain (TCA). During this peel, patients experience little discomfort.

TCA CROSS

Chemical Reconstruction Of Skin Scars (CROSS) uses Potent Tricloacetic Acid (TCA). This peel is localized to target only specific areas by applying TCA to the scar rather than the entire face. This treatment is most effective with icepick scars
