When it comes to skin care, a common goal is to have beautiful, healthy, radiant skin. Most people have a skin care regimen to help keep their skin healthy, and this likely includes periodic exfoliation. While exfoliation can help to remove the outermost layer of dead skin revealing healthy radiant skin, it is not always enough. The team at Dermatology on Bloor offer chemical peels. These options work in a manner similar to exfoliation; they remove the upper layer of skin to reveal healthier, fresher skin.
Chemical peeling involves the use of medications applied to the face to cause a mild peel in the upper layers of the skin,
leaving the skin with a healthier texture, tone, reducing discoloration and fine scars. Acne can also be improved with chemical peels. These medicines can vary in strength to change the intensity of the response. Several sessions are often necessary. The treatments are brief and patients may experience tingling or a mild sting lasting seconds to minutes. Peeling after treatment can be almost invisible with milder peels to more significant with more aggressive peels, lasting a few days. Each patient is different and your individual skin care needs will affect what type of chemical peel is best for you.
Drs. Hanna, Schachter, Curtis, Abdulla, Pollack & Taradash at Dermatology on Bloor are available to help patients achieve more self-esteem and confidence with treatment of this and many other dermatologic concerns.
