The use of chemicals for facial rejuvenation has been explored since ancient times. A sound knowledge of skin anatomy and wound healing is important for understanding the principles of chemical peeling. Superficial peels, only penetrating to various levels of the epidermis, help to improve skin radiance and luminosity and can be used to enhance treatment of a variety of conditions including acne, melasma, photodamage and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
At Vaughan Laser & Anti-Aging Medical Clinic, We only use Health Canada Approved chemical peels which involve applying a chemical solution to the skin that removes a layer of skin to reduce wrinkles, scars, and other signs of aging. The end result is transformed beautiful skin. But, because the high concentration of harsh chemicals used, only an experienced Aesthetician or Dermatologist can use medical grade products safely and without risk of severe injury.
Store bought chemical peels may provide slight results but their concentration of the chemical is significantly reduced and they will not be as dramatic or long-lasting as a professional performed medical grade facial peel. Below are 3 advantages of having chemical facial peel in the office with a professional.
Peels remove the outer dead layers of the stratum corneum, so the booster ingredients are better absorbed when applied post-peel. AlumierMD’s multilayer process can be customized by your skin care professional according to your skin profile and concerns.

Many chemical peels have compounds that are specifically designed to not only peel a layer of skin but also contain things like retinol, peptides, and antioxidants that help reduce and treat fine lines and wrinkles. A medical grade chemical peel is a staple of any anti-aging regimen.
Chemical peels remove a layer of skin so that a fresh, healthier layer can be revealed. Additionally, chemical peels unclog pores, help clear up acne, improve your skin’s ability to retain moisture, improve the cell turnover rate of your skin, and more. All of these things dramatically improve the surface texture of your skin. Your skin will have a natural glow that it did not have before. Additionally, if you wear makeup, the application will be far easier when you are working with a smoother more even-toned face.
