Chemical peels are a wonderful anti-aging skin care treatment for rejuvenating and renewing your skin.  A chemical peel involves using a chemical solution to improve the health and appearance of your skin by removing damaged and aged skin.  At Cerulean Medical Institute, our Kelowna skin care specialists use medical grade chemical peels to treat a variety of skin conditions.

Chemical peels come in various strengths and formulations.  Understanding the location of the skin condition and making the correct medical diagnosis will help direct the choice of chemical peel and successful results.  Chemical peel types include:

  • Superficial peels
  • Medium peels
  • Deep peels

Chemical Peels: What Conditions does it treat?

Chemical peels are used to treat a variety of skin conditions including:

  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Aging skin
  • Brown spots
  • Dull complexion
  • Melasma
  • Milia
  • Scars
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Sagging skin
  • Wrinkles

Chemical peels are commonly performed on the face, neck and hands.  The peel process is associated with peeling of damaged and aged skin with minimal downtime.  Downtime for chemical peel treatments vary according to the depth and strength of peel.  Following the peel, newer regenerated skin is laid down.  This results in a healthier looking, rejuvenated appearance.  It is imperative to protect your skin with appropriate sun protection following the treatment procedure.

The ideal candidates for chemical peels are those looking to improve acne, have fewer lines and wrinkles, brighter complexion and smoother skin with a more even healthier tone.
