A skin renewing treatment that triggers collagen production for anti-ageing or anti-acne benefits.
Chemical peel treatments for the face and body in our Montreal or Laval skincare clinic are skin regenerating dermal treatments that use alpha-hydroxy acids to exfoliate the outer layers of the skin. A Light to medium chemical peel removes keratinized cells and debris that cause dull skin, congested skin congestion and signs of premature ageing.
What are Chemical peels?
Chemical peels are facials or body treatments that enhance your skin’s features by cleansing, restoring and firming the epidermis. It is a quick detox solution for radiant skin combined with our super-enriched peptide masks and our traditional facial lifting massage.
How does it work?
Peels involve the application of specific natural acids to the surface of the skin to treat acne, hyperpigmentation, age spots, melasma, and common skin problems. Facial Peels work by dissolving the particles that hold the old dead cells to your epidermis, blocking younger and healthier skin from showing and renewing itself further.
Who can get chemical peels?
Advanced chemical peel treatments will help your skin function better whether you see signs of ageing skin or acne blemishes. The effect of applying Pharmaceutical-grade alpha-hydroxy acids on the skin triggers intense collagen production resulting in firmer, younger-looking skin that is healthy and capable of fighting off free radicals.

Don’t exfoliate for at least a week before your chemical peel. This is because a chemical peel is a more intensive version of exfoliation, and you don’t want to overdo it. Wearing no makeup in the few days before your chemical peel also helps with efficacy. If you are using products that dry out your skin, be sure to have stopped taking them days before and stay hydrated before your chemical peel session and on the day of. Any Retin-A, glycolic acid, Accutane, or Renova should have been stopped before your chemical peel.
Chemical peel facials or body treatments start at 125$ depending on which areas of body or peeling procedure you choose.
We recommend getting a peel treatment once per week for the first three weeks when targeting acne blemishes or symptoms of ageing skin. Following up with a treatment once per month or season will ensure effective stimulation of the skin cell turnover, promoting healthy collagen and skin restructuring.
Immediately after your appointment, you will notice slightly pink skin with a fresh, cleansed feel to your skin. In the following week, there may be minor peeling in arid areas of your skin. However, 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.
The immediate effects of a deep cleansing facial will last between five and seven days with clear skin that can last up to several months. Hydrate and exfoliate your skin regularly and wear sunscreen when needed. Please view and follow the chemical peel post-treatment aftercare instructions available here
