What Types of Chemical Peel Treatments are Available?
At Holistic Beauty Uxbridge, Ontario we offer a range of professional-strength skin peels using formulations from renowned cosmeceutical brands – PCA SKIN® and Mesoestetic®. These are classed into three distinct categories of chemical peel:
Superficial Skin Peel
These require little to no recovery time and can be used to treat:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Areas of dryness
Uneven skin tone and mild pigmentation
Acne scarring - PIH
Medium-Depth Skin Peel
A medium peel is used to treat similar skin conditions as a superficial peel, but requires a higher-strength formulation that’s more intensive to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. This facial treatment usually requires around 48 hours of recovery time with mild to moderate skin flaking, but provides more dramatic and long-lasting results.
Deep Skin Peel (The Cosmelan® Peel)
This is a specialist formulation from Mesoestetic that is extremely effective in treating melasma and severe pigmentation. The Cosmelan® chemical peel requires considerable pre and post care:
Skin preparation begins at least two to four weeks prior to your treatment.
On the day of the treatment, a specialist mask is applied which you return home with and leave on for between 8 to 12 hours.
You will remove the mask at home and follow with a daily skin care regimen as advised by your doctor or skincare professional.
Your skin’s recovery time can take up to 2 weeks from the day of your treatment.
After 1-2 weeks you will begin to notice results. Skin blemishes will begin to fade and a brighter complexion will begin to appear.
After 3 to 4 weeks – Your skin will take on an even appearance and a healthier glow. These results will continue to improve over the fifth week and beyond.
