As we age, our body's ability to renew our cells reduces immensely. While in our 20s, we are able to renew cells to reveal a fresher appearance anywhere from 14-21 days compared to our 40s in which it slows down to 40-65 days. Why is cell renewal important you might ask? It aids in the process of anti-aging. When your cell turnover rate is low, the result is drier, dull looking skin where new skin cells are unable to travel from the deeper layers of the epidermis to the top layer to shed off old skin.
Low grade Chemical Peels are a great way to penetrate and exfoliate the skin on deeper levels than Microdermabrasion. This is a non-invasive, gentle treatment that encourages cell regeneration while removing the build-up of dead skin cells that hold the dead skin on the surface.
Low grade Chemical Peels help to keep your skin clean, clear, healthy, while aiding with anti-aging and cell renewal. Chemical Peels remove the top layer of dead skin cells to expose a fresh, new layer of visibly younger and fresher skin. Low grade Chemical Peels also help to improve the appearance of shallow acne scars and acne, uneven skin tone and texture, dull or aging skin, and fine lines and wrinkles.
Chemical Peels currently offered at Thornhill Skin Clinic are different levels of Glycolic, Salicylic, and Lactic Acids. With a custom approach to your skincare, we offer different strengths and levels of Chemical Peels to support your skin concerns. With a series of these Peels, you will see a remarkable difference in your skin tone and texture.
The Lactic Peel is extremely hydrating, smooths lines and is suitable for mature and young skin, sun damage and acne prone concerns. Lactic Peels are safe for sensitive skin as they are very gentle on the skin leaving it smooth, refreshed and glowing. Glycolic Peels are our most popular Peel provided at Thornhill Skin Clinic. A Glycolic Peel will bring back the glow of healthy skin and minimize hyperpigmented areas using increasing strengths of pure alpha-hydroxy acid. We recommend this peel for most skin types, especially mature, dull and sun-damaged skin. This Peel is also effective in treating active acne as part of a regimen. Salicylic Peels are suited for patients with severe acne, congestion, blackheads and frequent breakouts. Skin that is more acne-prone, oily or scarred and cystic will benefit from the light shedding after receiving this Chemical Peel. It is excellent for adult acne and can be tailored as a spot treatment.
Your aesthetician will assess your skin type and medical history during your appointment and treat you with the Chemical Peel most suitable for your skin type.
