Chemical peels

Improve your skin tone and texture with professional chemical peels in Montreal and Laval.

What is a chemical peel?

A Facial Peel is a deep exfoliation treatment that combines various hydroxy acids to promote beautiful skin. It dissolves the connections that hold dead skin cells on the surface, trapping oils. Within a few days, you can see new, smoother, hydrated skin. Not only do chemical peels improve the appearance of your skin, but also the feel of it. 

Skin Benefits

One of the greatest strengths of a chemical peel is its capacity to control excess oil production through exfoliation, leaving the skin smooth, healthy-looking, and glowing. 

All year round facial

with repeat applications, either biweekly or monthly, this summer, a chemical peel can also dramatically address any acne and scars you might have, as well as past sun damage. Pretty soon you’ll be able to ditch the full coverage for sheerer foundations like a tinted moisturizer or BB cream with SPF.

What does it feel like?

Chemical peels are relaxing yet stimulating facials. You may experience the extraction of blackheads and pimples during your facials, which may cause minimal discomfort. With that said, the peeling itself is entirely pain-free. Peel facials are treatments that usually take between 30 minutes and 1 hour. Chemical Peels are preferably done in a series of appointments, for example, two treatments per month. Especially in cases of acne treatments or for fading skin pigmentation.

After your peeling treatment

stay out of the sun for long periods for 48 hours post-treatment. Also, make sure you clean your bed sheets, pillowcases and face towels. Avoid contact with pets and animals. Minimize touching your face. Avoid excessive sweating for a week.

What to expect

Immediately after your appointment, you will notice a slight redness and a fresh, clean feel to your skin. In the following week, there may be minor peeling in arid areas of your skin. These areas will peel off and reveal beautiful young skin underneath. The side-effects following your appointment will not be intense, and you can go to work without concern. Just follow your esthetician’s guidelines.

Products used

Chemical peels procedure can be done with strengths— light, medium or deep — depending on the skin condition that is treated. Each type of chemical peel uses a different chemical formula and power. Deeper chemical peels are intended for deeper skin corrections such as scars and wrinkles, produce dramatic results, and involve longer recovery times. We use Dermalogica’s Pro Power Peel series to offer our client top of the line results. 

Prepping for a Peel

Avoid unprotected sun exposure. It’s essential always to apply sunscreen at least two weeks before the peeling treatment to help prevent post-treatment sun sensitivity. You may also hydrate and protect your skin with a vitamin c hyaluronic acid serum for added protection. At least one week before the Peel, you must stop any hair removal procedures such as waxing, hair removal cream or laser. Also, avoid bleaching hair or skin, deep massages or exfoliating scrubs.
