Let’s be honest, when it comes to beauty, cosmetic enhancements and plastic surgery, there are a lot of myths out there. Medical peels such as Lactic peels, Glycolic peels, Salicylic peels and Jessner peels are growing in popularity across Toronto and Canada, but there are myths that still exist. “Medical peels can deliver remarkable benefits for people who have dehydrated or discoloured skin, or are showing signs of aging,” said Dr. Ali Adibfar – the medical director at Elements Wellness and Medispa in Toronto. “These treatments are perfect for all skin types – even those with highly sensitive skin. The end result is radiant, youthful and vibrant skin that redefines your beauty and increases your confidence.”

While these medical peels are safe and effective, there are many myths that create confusion and can even cause people to miss out on the amazing benefits they offer. That’s why Dr. Adibfar and his talented team of medispa specialists looked to debunk the common myths about medical peels.

Myths About Medical Peels: There’s major downtime required

Many people think that they’ll require days or even weeks in recovery as their face heals and regenerates. This simply isn’t the case. While each person will react differently to the medical peel they choose, significant amounts of downtime and recuperation are just not part of the enhancement process.”The medical peels we use are gentile, safe and very effective,” said Dr. Adibfar. “As they exfoliate dead skin cells and new cells emerge, your skin is rejuvenated. Because it deals with the top layers of skin, the downtime is very minimal.”

Myths About Medical Peels: They’re just plain bad for you

Medical or chemical peels are often given a bad name because we tend to associate “chemical” with danger. While certain chemicals are used in the medical peel process, they’re actually designed to help exfoliate the skin and renew your appearance in a safe way. At Elements Wellness and Medispa – one of Toronto’s best spas – we don’t use abrasive methods or harsh chemicals. “Our team is committed to using the safest methods and technology because we place your safety at the forefront of everything we do,” explains Dr. Adibfar.

Myths About Medical Peels: You’ll be left with a red face

People will react differently to their medical peel. Some may not show any signs of redness, while others might have visible redness immediately after the treatment is performed. This subsides fairly quickly. We’ll review the entire process during the initial consultation phase so you know exactly what to expect from your medical peel.

Myths About Medical Peels: Your skin can’t be in good shape if you want one

People tend to think that a medical peel or chemical peel is reserved only for those with problematic skin. We actually treat many men and women at our Yorkville medispa who have flawless skin. This is done as a preventative measure because our approach and process exfoliates the skin, promotes the healthy growth of new skin cells and delivers a radiant appearance.
