What is Chemical Peels
As the name suggests, chemical peels use various chemicals in order to peel off a layer of skin, leaving behind a new, better and youthful looking complexion. Many of the clients who have already tried chemical peels in Barrie, Ontario at the Me & My Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Centre rave about these technique that is more affordable than cosmetic surgery and with similar results.
According to the condition you need to treat, the chemical peel can be stronger or milder. However, the process is the same for all of them: a solution is applied on the entire face (or on certain parts of it) and left there for a pre-determined period of time. After the solution is removed new, healthier skin emerges. Aside from the aesthetic and immediately visible results, chemical peels also have long-term benefits: they stimulate the collagen productions and allow the moisturizers and other products to penetrate deeper levels of the skin and deliver nutrients there, as well.
At the Me & My Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Centre, we can offer following peels:
Lactic Acid Peel: Is an appropriate preparatory peel for dull skin, which softens expression lines and very superficial wrinkles, and evens out skin tone. Suitable to be used on rosacea and couperose. It has a natural moisturizing effect on the skin, attracting water molecules to the surface of your skin, stimulating and improving the skins barrier function.
Modified Jessner Peel: Contains a combination of salicylic, lactic, and citric acid, which all work together creating a powerful anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial effect on the skin. It is used to treat mild to moderate photo aging, fine expression lines, and superficial wrinkles, loss of firmness, large pores, dull skin, irregular skin tone, acne prone skin, and pigment lesions such as solar lentigines.
Glycolic Acid Peel: Is one of the most commonly used chemical peels in the medical esthetic industry. It is used to even out dull and uneven skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as hyperpigmentation and solar damage such as age spots/ liver spots, sagging skin, enlarged pores, mild acne scaring, increases hydration and allows for better penetration of products.
