The Top Three Benefits of Toronto Chemical Peels

There is a common misconception surrounding chemical peels that they will be extremely painful and leave the skin raw.

This was true as recently as the 1990’s when chemical peels , especially glycolic acid peels, gained popularity. However, with advances in modern medicine and modern approaches to skincare, peels are not what they used to be. Read on to find out the top three benefits of chemical peels.

Increasing the Production of Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid

The Key Advantages of the Chemical Peels

The goal of a chemical peel in Toronto has shifted from a focus on skin-surface removal to infusing the skin with ingredients that are typically natural and non-toxic. The goal is to diminish lines, build collagen, and improve skin tone.

Toronto chemical peels carry many beauty benefits. One of the key advantages is making your skin products work more effectively. When the outer layer of the skin is shed, the cells below are triggered to multiply and move up while increasing the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid. As a result, the skin appears younger, fresher, and smoother.

Following a chemical peel in Toronto, patients also often find that their regular skin-care products work more effectively. This is because they no longer have to work their way through dead cells, which were previously impeding their penetration.

Another important benefit is that these peels are typically low-risk and can be completely customized to suit each individual’s conditions and goals. There are types of chemical peels that are mild enough to be safe on every skin colour without posing a risk of hyperpigmentation. Doctors and plastic surgeons are able to use a variety of premixed chemical peels solutions as well as customize their own to treat specific patient concerns. At his facial cosmetic surgery clinic in Toronto, Dr. Torgerson strives to ensure the comfort and care of each of his patients.

Unclogging the Pores

A Customized Treatment Plan

For patients considering a chemical peel in Toronto, Dr. Torgerson and his team work closely with them to understand their goals and devise a customized treatment plan to achieve them.

Last but not least, the right type of peel can treat a wide range of issues from putting an end to acne and its scars to controlling melasma. Salicylic acid peels and Jessner’s peels work by penetrating deep into the skin and unclogging the pores. They simultaneously skim the surface of the skin, destroying blackheads and acne scars. Pitted acne scars can also be treated effectively by using a higher concentration of TCA (trichloroacetic) in the scar areas and balancing it out with a weaker acid formula on the rest of the face.

There are also many other lesser-known benefits of a chemical peel in Toronto. For instance, most patients do not realize that a peel can be used to treat areas affected by sun damage and pigmentation issues on the body as well, not just the face. Another area people are often surprised to learn can be treated by a chemical peel is the under-eye area. Using a combination of TCA and lactic acid, carefully dispensed via a pen applicator, this treatment is able to target dark circles that have been created by piled-up pigment under the skin.

If you are interested in learning more about how you can benefit from a chemical peel, scheduling a consultation with Dr. Torgerson is the first step in the right direction towards achieving your skincare goals.
