There are many medical peel options available to you. But have you ever asked yourself which medical peel is right for me? It’s a common question for men and women who are seeking more beautiful, rejuvenated skin without undergoing surgery. “The medical peel options available today have made them extremely popular because they can shave years off your appearance without having to undergo an invasive procedure,” said Dr. Ali Adibfar, a leader in the Toronto plastic surgery industry. “But with various medical peels available, it can be difficult to determine which one is right for you and your skin.”

Medical peels are highly effective medical spa treatments that exfoliate dead skin cells safely in an effort to promote the growth of new skin cells. The result is a smoother, more youthful and beautiful appearance.

“Depending on the individual patient’s needs, skin composition and goals, Elements offers a variety of medical peels to create a stunningly beautiful appearance,” explains Dr. Adibfar. “Our skin care specialists invest a significant amount of time helping you determine which medical peel is right for you.”

Medical peels are growing in popularity because of their effectiveness and for the simple fact that there is no downtime or recuperation required. They are easy, affordable and deliver results. If you are  one of the thousands of men and women who want to look and feel younger, you are probably wondering which medical peel is right for you. Let’s take a closer look at the medical peels that are available to you, their individual benefits and how they can give you the skin you’ve always wanted.

Medical Peel Options: Which is Right for Me?

Lactic Peels

Does your skin feel dehydrated? Are you starting to see discoloration in certain areas? Are you starting to notice more the signs of aging? Lactic peels are great for almost every skin type and can help turn back the hands of time. “Lactic peels are the most gentle of all cosmetic chemical peels available,” explains Dr. Adibfar. “It’s a great option for those who want to enhance their facial appearance without the irritation and discomfort that may be caused by more aggressive peels.”

Lactic peels are mild alpha-hydroxy acids that exfoliate the skin without the risk of irritation and dryness.
“Our team uses advanced lactic acid that reduces the appearance of age spots, smoothes away fine lines, and rehydrates the skin to provide a more youthful look,” says Dr. Adibfar.

Glycolic Peels

Glycolic peels are great for people who want to brighten up their skin. Glycolic peels are more aggressive forms of alpha-hydroxy acids which are great for people who want to correct their skin texture or imperfections and brighten their complexion.  “Glycolic peels are very effective in reducing the appearance of sunspots, wrinkles, fine lines and acne scars,” explains Dr. Adibfar. “These peels help create a renewed look without having to use abrasive exfoliating methods.”

Glycolic peels deeply penetrate the skin, which stimulates new cell generation and collagen production. Following the treatment, your skin will be slightly red and will gently peel, but that’s normal. Once the skin cells have peeled off, you’re left with a beautiful, youthful and smoother appearance.

Salicylic Peels

Did you know that acne eruptions, whiteheads and blackheads can result from dead skin clogging up your delicate pores? If you’re experiencing this, our Salicylic peels could be a great choice for you. The salicylic peels are beta-hydroxy acids. Their deep penetrating abilities counteract these issues to help give you a more beautiful complexion.

“Our Salicylic peel’s advanced combination of anti-septic and exfoliating properties will dramatically clear out pores,” says Dr. Adibfar. “The appearance you’re left with is incredibly beautiful, clean and smooth.”

Jessner Peels

Our Jessner peel is one of the most aggressive medical peel treatment available. If you have sun damage, wrinkles, skin discoloration, scarring, melasma or acne, the Jessner peel could be your best choice.

“This process is highly effective also for those with oily, acne-prone skin,” says Dr. Adibfar. “It has the remarkable ability to deeply clean clogged pores more effectively than other, less aggressive medical peels.”

An additional benefit is that it supports the acne healing process.

How do Jessner peels work? They use a proprietary combination of lactic acid, salicylic acid and resorcinol to deeply penetrate the skin. “You’ll notice significant flaking for about 3 to 4 days post-treatment,” explains Dr. Adibfar. “But the end result is smoother, healthier and more youthful looking skin.”

The Medical Peel Options Are Right at Your Fingertips

When it comes to selecting the right medical peel for you, there are a lot of variables to consider. Your skin, genetics, problem areas and goals are all important elements to keep in mind.

“With the varied medical peel options available, it can be difficult to know which is right for you,” says Dr. Adibfar. “If you’re looking for more youthful, smoother and healthier looking skin, speak to a medical spa professional about what’s best for you and your beauty.”
