Chemical peels are loved by our patients for many reasons! Our spa specialists at Toronto’s Elements Spa have perfected the art of customizing the peel and its strength to each patient to achieve the best results possible. Depending on your skin type and issues, our skin specialists create a tailored session and/or series of sessions to optimize your skin and get you the results you dream of! Let’s take a closer look at some of the results you can expect from your chemical peel.

The Treatment

A chemical peel treatment is completed by our medically-trained skincare specialists at Elements Spa. The chemical peel is often a clear liquid solution that penetrates the skin when applied. The custom solution will go deep under the surface layers of the skin to address issues at the root and correct them so that the top layer of the skin can reap the benefits. The solution is left on the skin for a specific amount of time, then neutralized and removed. Over the next few days, patients will begin to notice some skin sensitivity, dryness, tightness, and peeling which is normal and required for the skin to shed and reveal new layers of fresh, radiant skin. 

Post-Treatment Care

During this time it is crucial patients protect themselves from sun exposure as well as let the skin shed on its own without picking or prodding at it. It is a natural exfoliation process that needs to be completed before beginning any rigorous skincare routines. Once all the peeling is complete, what’s left is smoother, more radiant, and rejuvenated skin.

The Results

Patients are thrilled to see the results from their chemical peel, especially after seeing the compounding benefits of multiple spaced sessions. Patients can expect to see improvement in their skin with a reduction in age spots, sun spots, melasma, and more! Chemical peels can also treat textural issues alongside wrinkles and acne scars. Skin texture is improved with new skin cells that have space to breathe at the surface. These new skin cells can also absorb your skincare products more efficiently as well as appear more hydrated and youthful-looking.

A chemical peel treatment also promotes the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, allowing your skin to work at smoothing and tightening the underlying facial structures. Patients are also thrilled to see a more even skin tone and reduced fine lines after the short recovery period. 

A chemical peel does however utilize a chemical acid. Therefore patients should always choose their skincare specialist wisely to avoid any complications and/or permanent damage as the acids used can cause serious injury to the skin if utilized by an inexperienced specialist.
