At Bay Dermatology Centre, we provide variety of chemical peel options which may be customized to correct acne, sun damage, and oily or aging skin. If you have sensitive, problematic, oily, or aging skin, we will provide the right peel for you.
Chemical peels are 20 minute procedures that will brighten dull-looking skin immediately. A chemical peel will also activate cell renewal which helps with collagen reproduction. It gives the skin an immediate fresh glow. When done on a regular basis, they may help light some pigment spots and slightly tighten pores. Some of our chemical peels are also used to treat acne in conjunction with other therapies.
Side effects from chemical peels are rare and mild. Most individuals are able to return to work or regular activities immediately after the treatment. These peels are performed by our expert nurse/estitician but are always done with the backup of a board-certified dermatologist.
Patients should stop any prescription treatment creams such as vitamin A/retinol or topical antibiotics one week before their peel. These products can be resumed three days after the peel.
Finally, other cosmetic treatments, such as Botox and Dermal fillers, may be done immediately after a chemical peel. Facials or waxing should be avoided for least one week after a chemical peel to avoid irritation.
The best way to find out which chemical peel option will best address your needs is to speak with one of our dermatologists in person. Please call 416-515-8808 today to schedule a consultation.
