Chemical peels are an effective and alternative non-surgical facial treatment compared to undergoing an invasive procedure that could potentially cost you a great deal of money. Most people develop different types of skin conditions throughout their lives. Overexposure to the sun, poor genetics, physical trauma, severe acne, and rosacea can all be alleviated and better managed by the occasional chemical peel in Toronto. La Fontaine Source De Jeunesse is committed to helping our clients gain an in-depth understanding of their skin conditions and recommend appropriate peel procedure options.
What Are Chemical Peels?
Most people are under the mistaken impression that chemical peels can only be applied to the face and neck and while these are the most common areas for these procedures to be done, they’re actually quite versatile. Any part of your body that exhibits signs of a skin condition—with the exception of the eyes and sensitive areas such as genitals—can undergo a chemical peel. Essentially, these are non-invasive procedures that remove several layers of skin to literally peel away any signs of imperfection and uncover a smoother, blemish-free surface.
Types of Chemical Peels
There are several different types of chemical and facial peels that we administer here at La Fontaine Source De Jeunesse, including the following:
- Lactic Peels
- Glycolic Peels
- Vitalize Peels
- Beta Peels
- Pigment Balancing Peels
- TCA Peels
Each type of chemical peel is specially formulated to suit the needs of individual patients. Hence, before we can begin treatment, we always conduct a thorough assessment of all of our clients and match them up as closely as possible to the type of treatment we believe will be most appropriate and effective for their situation.
Different Chemical Peel Procedures
As with any other cosmetic procedure, we always conduct an exhaustive preliminary consultation with each and every single one of our clients to discuss their specific concerns, answer all of their questions, make recommendations, and explain the procedures involved in their treatment. All of the above mentioned types of chemical peels entail varying procedural steps, but the overall concept is basically the same: remove dead and damaged skin cells to reveal beautiful, glowing, flawless, and youthful skin. The purpose of these procedures is ultimately to restore or improve the appearance of your skin so that you can exude confidence and be the best version of yourself.
Recovery Period and Process
Compared to other more invasive cosmetic procedures, the recovery time for chemical peels is actually relatively short and simple. It usually takes approximately 7-10 days to make a full recovery, but during that time it’s highly advised that you try to take some time off work and avoid attending social events. Your skin will be extremely sensitive to light and susceptible to infections caused by airborne allergens and bacteria, not to mention the fact that you’ll experience minimal discomfort, scabbing, and redness. However, once all of that subsides, your skin will look and feel softer, smoother, and more radiant.
For nearly 40 years, La Fontaine Source De Jeunesse has been successfully administering full body and facial chemical peels to our loyal and satisfied clients as well as other non-surgical and surgical cosmetic procedures to help them continue to look their very best and exude confidence.
