Chemical Peels

Chemical Peel Procedures Barrie, Ontario

Natural consequences of sun exposure, stress and aging can be a variety of skin issues such as: fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, age spots, acne breakouts, loss of collagen, rough skin texture or overall dry skin. One way to effectively manage these concerns is to use appropriate skin care products and receive chemical peels. Chemical solutions typically applied may include glycolic acid, lactic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid or carbolic acid.  

Depending on the type and strength of peel, it is possible to stimulate collagen production, accelerate cell turnover, slow oil production, minimize pigmentation and destroy damaged skin cells. The “downtime” for superficial peels is ranging from a week to none at all, while medium peels and deep peels might require 14 days or more to heal.

Lactic Acid

Lactic single acid peels are recommended for dry, mature and sensitive skin types in need of hydration. This peel will soften fine lines and wrinkles and stimulate collagen and elastin production.

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid acts directly on oily skin problems or those prone to acne, whiteheads and skin blemishes.  This mixes freely with existing oils on the epidermis as well as sebaceous material within the follicle. It is particularly recommended in the care of skins with impurities or acne problems as salicylic acid is a sebo-regulator, containing antiseptic, bacteriostatic and fungicidal properties. Dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons typically use this agent in medium and deep chemical peels.


Trichloracetic acid is recommended for medium to deep wrinkles, moderate to severe photo damage, actinic and seborrhea keratosis, and mild to moderate acne. This peel will improve tone and texture of facial skin with minimal to total resurfacing achieved depending on strength, layers and time left on facial tissue.
