How chemical peels can enhance and improve the skin

Whether you are interested in a more refreshed appearance to your skin or want to correct imperfections, chemical peels from the team at Remington Laser Dermatology Centre may be highly desirable for patients in and around the Calgary, AB area. Patients in the community can use chemical peels to improve the health, look, and overall appearance of the skin on the face and neck. Our team offers a wide selection of chemical peels that can be tailored to a patient’s unique desires. During the first appointment, an initial evaluation is done to determine which peel is properly suited to a patient’s needs.

What is a chemical peel?

The doctors of Remington Laser Dermatology Centre describe the chemical peel as a treatment that utilizes custom chemical solutions applied to the skin of the face or neck to provide exfoliation and peeling of the skin—hence the name. Once the dull, upper layer of skin is peeled off, it reveals regenerated skin that is healthier, more youthful, and smoother!

What can chemical peels treat?

There are many reasons why patients might choose a chemical peel for their skin. Chemical peels can treat various issues, making it a one-stop shop for patients ready to address poor skin health and appearance. Common conditions improved with chemical peels include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Active acne
  • Acne scarring
  • Melasma
  • Sun damage
  • Poor texture and tone
  • Dull skin complexion

What types of chemical peels are available?

There are a wide range of peels available for patients to use, and they range in strength from mild to aggressive. Mild peels offer slight exfoliation but do not require extended time for recovery. These “lunchtime peels” are fast and effective at addressing superficial issues on the skin. However, stronger peels may be chosen for patients who want the most noticeable effects after one treatment, though these do require downtime from social activities because of the amount of redness and peeling that can occur.
