Chemical Peel Introduction

Chemical Peel

The older we get, our bodies begin showing signs of aging, especially in our skin. This can be caused by things such as environmental factors or genetics and is a big concern for many people trying to look and feel their best. One of the most common skin rejuvenation treatments we offer is a Chemical Peel, which is a resurfacing procedure used to treat mild wrinkles, discolored skin, and scars. If you are considering a Chemical Peel in Toronto, come and see the team at Aviva Cosmetic & Laser Clinic. We understand the importance of safe, medical care and will take care of you.

What is a Chemical Peel?

A Chemical Peel is a non-invasive skincare treatment designed to address various skin concerns associated with an excess buildup of dead skin cells. This buildup can lead to issues such as clogged pores that make your skin appear thick and lackluster. Chemical Peels at Aviva Clinic provide a pain-free and non-irritating solution to effectively treat aging skin, and acne, and reduce sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.

Our Chemical Peels come in a range of different strengths, catering to all unique skin types and conditions. What sets this treatment apart is its ability to work deeply within the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production while encouraging cell renewal. This process contributes to smoother, brighter, and plumper skin. For enhanced results, many patients choose to combine Chemical Peels with Microdermabrasion as part of their personalized treatment plan for added benefits and a more comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation.

Who are the best candidates for a Chemical Peel?

Suited for those grappling with concerns like sun damage, fine lines, acne scars, dry skin, uneven pigmentation, and enlarged pores, Chemical Peels in Toronto offer a versatile solution. Individuals looking for a renewed complexion, improved skin texture, and enhanced radiance find these peels to be a great choice requiring little to no downtime.

However, while Chemical Peels cater to diverse skin types and concerns, individuals with active skin conditions like active acne, heightened sensitivities, or specific skin issues like eczema may benefit from a personalized consultation at Aviva Cosmetic and Laser Clinic to explore their options for tailored skincare solutions.

What are the benefits of a Chemical Peel?

Embark on a journey of facial rejuvenation with a Toronto Chemical Peel and unlock a myriad of benefits for your skin, including:

  • Skin Renewal: Chemical Peels effectively remove dead skin cells, stimulating the production of new, healthier skin cells. This contributes to improved skin texture and a more vibrant complexion.
  • Versatility in Treatment: Whether addressing sun damage, fine lines, shallow acne scars, dry skin, uneven pigmentation, or enlarged pores, Chemical Peels offer a versatile solution to a range of skin concerns.
  • Collagen and Elastin Boost: The treatment encourages the production of collagen and elastin, the two vital components for skin elasticity and tightness for a youthful glow.
  • Brightened Complexion: With the removal of dull and damaged skin layers, Chemical Peels promote a brighter and more even skin tone.

What to expect on the day of a Chemical Peel treatment

On the day of your Chemical Peel at Aviva, our specialists will guide you through a final consultation and answer any last-minute questions. Your skin will be carefully cleansed, and a prepping solution will be applied.

Next, a specialized solution with a precisely chosen peel strength, tailored to suit your skin type and address your concerns, will be evenly applied with a brush. This solution works to exfoliate the outermost layer of your skin, promoting the exfoliation and removal of dead cells and stimulating the production of new, rejuvenated skin cells. In order to activate the peel, a layer of wet gauze will be placed over the solution on your skin. You might feel a mild sensation as the solution begins to work its magic.

As a final step, moisturizer and SPF will be applied to nourish and protect your skin post-treatment. The entire process takes about 30 to 45 minutes, resulting in a refreshed complexion, reduced signs of aging, and a radiant glow.

Chemical Peel recovery

Following your Chemical Peel, you can expect some redness and mild peeling, which are natural reactions as your skin begins to rejuvenate. The recovery timeline varies based on each patient’s individual healing process, but you’ll generally notice a smoother, clearer, and more radiant layer appear within a few days to a week.

Aviva’s specialists customize every chemical peel treatment to minimize downtime, allowing clients to resume their daily routines immediately without significant flaking or shedding. We recommend using sun protection and following post-peel care recommendations to help contribute to a smoother recovery process, allowing you to navigate your everyday routine with confidence during and after this rejuvenating treatment.

While the initial redness diminishes, your skin will continue to improve over the next several weeks, showing enhanced texture, tone, and reduced imperfections. Aviva ensures a supportive post-peel care plan to optimize your recovery and help you enjoy the long-term benefits of this rejuvenating treatment.
