Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are a method of regenerating and resurfacing the skin by inducing a controlled wound to the skin. They remove the top layers of skin to help induce collagen remodelling and, therefore, improve sun-damaged skin, skin pigmentation problems, wrinkles, skin texture and the overall appearance of the skin. The strength of the chemical peel will determine its depth. Deeper peels will have a longer recovery, but will also result in a greater improvement in the skin.

Are Peels just for the face?

Peels can be carried out on any part of the body.

Peels are for:      Face     Neck     Shoulders    Chest     Back     Arms     Legs


What types of chemical peels are there?

There are several types of chemical peels suited to different skin problems and types. Chemical peels also vary in strength and are classified as superficial, medium and deep, according to the level of skin they reach.

Can I combine Chemical Peels with other treatments?

We frequently combine chemical peels with LED light therapy and the infusion of vitamins or Oxygen therapy to calm tissue, plump skin, and to stimulate a reparative cellular response to speed up the skin’s natural renewal process.

A customized planned combining both microdermabrasion and peels should be followed for best results. Alternating different peels with many of our latest skin treatments will give optimal results.

This at-home peel actually uses Ossential Radical Night Repair Plus, a ZO Skin Health product that is available at Doctor’s Surgery.

Ossential Radical Night Repair Plus can be used as an evening treatment in moderate to aggressive doses for a three to five day at-home intensive peel.

The objective is to accelerate cellular turnover and improve skin’s ability to renew itself.

With this Peel, you are in control of the peel intensity and you can customize it in order to build up tolerance to the retinol.

Before starting the peel, determine the intensity that is appropriate for your skin by discussing options with your physician/dermal therapist. You can select a moderate or strong peel protocol depending upon the condition of your skin and the results you want to achieve.
