Chemical Peel

Chemical Peel in Edmonton

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.

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 impurity 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 scars
  • mild acne
  • Discoloration of the skin
  • Skin with a rough texture

Chemical Peel disadvantage

The disadvantage of a chemical peel is that it makes you more sensitive to the sun. After that, plan on wearing sunscreen every day. The procedure can also be uncomfortable and leave areas treated with a burning sensation. Swelling and redness are expected for 3-7 days and peeling and scabbing of the treated areas. This involves avoiding products that may irritate the skin and fresh spots.

Chemical Peel Benefits

Chemical peeling, also known as chemexfoliation, aids in the removal or peeling of unwanted outer layers of skin. Although the depth of the peel may affect the lower layers, it is critical to select the right peel solution that causes a harmless and controlled disruption to the skin layers in order to remove dead cells and tissues and regenerate them. The deteriorated skin peels away, leaving a smooth and radiant appearance.

Before the chemical peel

The types of peel treatments available are determined by several factors, including skin type, complexion, treatment type, and the amount of downtime required to achieve the desired results. As a result, there are four types of peels. Professional advice is required before undergoing the treatment. This assists in determining the depth and type of chemical peel that fits you the best. It is necessary to use a moisturizer and sunscreen prior to the procedure. The moisturizer prepares the skin for the peel and even helps it heal. Before and after the procedure, You might get prescribed antibiotics or antiviral medications. The state of one’s skin is critical. To observe the results, a small ‘test spot’ may be tested/peeled in. For people with darker skin tones, the test spot procedure is more common and necessary.

Chemical Peel FAQs

In the case of medium and deep peels, patients should give their skin a ‘relax’ for up to five to six weeks. Superficial peels may only require a few days in the city. For two to three months after a chemical peel, the skin may appear reddish. If necessary, repeat the chemical peels procedure every six to twelve months.
Licensed estheticians should only perform chemical peels. Deeper peels have a higher risk of complications. Scarring, photosensitivity, and skin atrophy are examples of these. Aside from the expected redness, retinol elements in the peel may cause skin soreness. Because skin texture and type differ, some people may experience a color change after a chemical peel. People who have scarred skin, warts on their faces, or herpes may want to avoid this procedure.
There are several options for the peeling solution such as lactic acid, salicylic acid, or phenol. Our certified technician will the solution to the skin and leave it on for a period of time. She will then wash the skin water solution and apply the after-care solution. It is normal to experience a burning sensation during the treatment procedure; however, this will eventually wear off. A prickly sensation may occur as a result. To alleviate the discomfort, we apply cool compresses to the skin. The induced injury to this skin allows for the development of new skin.
You can correct the following skin irregularities through a chemical peel: Superficial acne scars, hyperpigmentation, Melasma and dilated pores. Please note that chemical peels are not strong enough to treat every skincare issue.
When it comes to peeling, people with darker skin may have mixed results. As a result, those with light or fair skin are the best candidates for chemical peeling.
A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin, which causes the dead skin cells to peel off. The new skin that is revealed is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. There are three different types of peels, which are classified according to the depth of penetration: superficial, medium, and deep. Superficial peels only affect the outer layer of skin (the epidermis), while medium and deep peels also affect the middle layer of skin (the dermis). The type of peel that is best for you will depend on your desired results. Before a chemical peel, it is important to cleanse the skin thoroughly and remove all makeup. The doctor will then apply a test patch to an inconspicuous area of skin to assess your reaction to the chemical solution. If you have any allergies or sensitivities, you may not be a good candidate for a chemical peel. After a chemical peel, it is important to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher when outdoors. You should also avoid harsh cleansers, exfoliants, and other products that could

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.

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.


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.

Post Treatment Instructions

Instructions for after treatment For two days after the treatment

  • Keep cool! Hyperpigmentation can happen when you heat your body inside.
  • Do not expose the treatment area to a hot shower spray, right after the chemical peel.
  • Don’t go into hot tubs, steam rooms, or saunas.
  • It would help if you did not go swimming.
  • Do not do anything that would make you sweat too much.
  • Avoid using loofahs or other tools to scrub your skin.
  • Do not use a hairdryer in the area where you received a chemical peel.

What after chemical Peel?

On the day of the treatment, it is best to let the skin rest and stabilize. Therefore it is a good idea to avoid wearing makeup on the day of the treatment.

  • To keep side effects to a minimum and get the best results, use the post-procedure solution for 3 to 5 days or until flaking has gone away.
  • You should moisturize at least twice a day to hydrate and lessen the appearance of flaking.
  • Use an SPF 30 or higher every day.
  • Keep out of the prolonged sun exposure for at least two weeks after having the chemical peel.
  • Don’t try to pick or pull on skin that’s coming off. This could cause hyperpigmentation.
  • Avoid any facial treatments for at least two weeks after having a chemical peel.

Combining HydraFacial with Chemical Peel

This is a cutting-edge technique that exfoliates the skin while simultaneously injecting serums to preserve its health and natural radiance. It uses a suction machine to remove dead skin cells from the outer layer of the face. It unclogs pores by removing oil and debris, leaving the skin feeling rejuvenated and brighter.

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Spots of darkness
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Acne vulgaris
  • Oily skin

Why Is HydraFacial Popular

It’s quite popular since it’s not as unpleasant as other facials like laser peels and ulthera facials, yet it still produces fantastic results. There are no scars or pricking involved, so it’s suitable for all skin types and conditions. Because this procedure is practically painless, there is no downtime, and there is typically no redness or swelling following – you can even put on makeup right away! HydraFacials have gained a reputation for being the most effective rejuvenation treatment for all skin types. It follows the following steps:


In this step, the HydraFacial handle removes dead skin cells and grime from the skin service. 


This efficiently eliminates the impurities and debris lodged in the pores, which are the main causes of acne and pore irritation. The vortex mechanism sweep the debris and other filthy without pricking or scarring the skin. Consider how well a vacuum cleaner would clean your face.


This is the last process in which they totally hydrate your skin with unique serums that tighten, strengthen, and improve the health of your skin. This step protects your skin from pollutants while also making it feel rejuvenated.
