AlumierMD Chemical Peels

Description

Chemical peels cause intentional damage to the epidermis and/or dermis with the goal of stimulating new tissue to improve skin texture and tone.  Chemical peels are classified as superficial, medium or deep, depending on the depth of penetration of the ingredients used. Superficial peels exfoliate to various levels of the epidermis. Medium-depth peels treat through the papillary dermis and deep peels to the mid-reticular dermis.

The strength of a chemical peel is determined by the type of ingredients used, their concentrations and the pH of the formulation.

Benefits

​Chemical peels improve skin texture and firmness, decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. Peels also even out skin tone, improve acne-prone skin and reduce pore size appearance.

Treatable Areas

Chemical peels are usually performed on the face, but may also be used on the neck, décolleté, back and hands.

Pretreatment Instructions

Pre-treatment products precondition the skin, accelerate results and minimize complications.

Avoid sun-exposure without proper sun-protection 1-2 weeks prior.

Avoid topical retinoids, Vitamin C, AHAs and BHAs 1 week prior.

Expectations

Upon application of the peel, clients report a feeling of warmth and tingling that peaks and then dissipates within a couple minutes. 

Recommended sessions

When peels are performed regularly, the skin gets used to this process and begins to rejuvenate itself like younger skin. 

The number of sessions is determined by the degree of skin changes desired, as well as your skin type, tone & texture.  For optimal results, a course of 4-6 peels is usually recommended.

Anticipated Results

Beautiful skin doesn’t happen overnight. A single chemical peel can provide the immediate effect of bright and radiant skin. However, more significant results in treating textural issues, fine lines and inflamed acne take time.

Side Effects

Superficial peels rarely cause side effects. However, hyperpigmentation can still occur with darker skin types.

Medium and deep chemical peels require more downtime and carry with them a higher chance of side effects including hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, infection and scars.

Cost

$175 for each chemical peel session.  This includes a $48 post procedure kit which contains up to 1 week’s worth of skincare.

Full medifacial with moisture or clay masks are $125 per session, this does not include the post procedure kit. 

Patient Testimonials

"My doctor recently moved to this clinic and I’m so happy that she did! The receptionists are great, the nurse is so caring and sweet, and the design of the office is relaxing and clean. And of course, Dr. Mackie is amazing."

Elizabeth Goldstone

"Dr. Gates Manhas is my primary care physician and she's the best doctor I've ever had. She is a compassionate listener and she always does a fantastic job of walking me through her thought process of a diagnosis, and always offers great advice and clear explanation of treatment options/testing. Can't recommend her enough!"

Katie De Sousa

"We’ve been patients of Dr. Amritpaul Manhas for almost 2 years. He’s so caring, what a rare thing is to find a doctor that listens. His colleagues are the exact same way. The clinic is big, well equipped, and everything works well. Manhas Medical has been my best medical experience since moving to Canada in 2014. I really appreciate you all and I’m grateful to have found you, Dr. Paul."
