Get Beautiful Skin With Our Kelowna Chemical Peels

A visit to the plastic surgeon isn’t the only way to improve your looks or turn back the years. Non-surgical, anti-aging skin care treatments are a less invasive option for patients who want to look younger and fresher without any of the surgical risks or associated downtime.

At our Kelowna skin care clinic, we offer advanced, minimally invasive treatments such as customized chemical peels, to help you achieve firmer, radiant, younger-looking skin in an instant.

Non-Surgical Anti-Aging Treatments


What is a Chemical Peel?

As you age, dead skin cells do not shed as easily, causing your skin to appear dull and rough. Chemical peels are an effective non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to peel away the damaged upper skin layers, improving skin texture while restoring a healthy, radiant appearance.

Depending on the type and severity of your skin concerns, there are three different levels of chemical peels available:

Light Chemical Peel

How it Works

Using a chemical solution, this peel removes only the outer layer of damaged skin, encouraging new cell growth and resulting in a healthier glow.

  1. First, your skin care specialist will cleanse the treatment area.
  2. The chemical solution is brushed onto your skin and left on for a few minutes.
  3. The chemical peel is then washed off and neutralized.
Recovery & Risks

You may experience some mild & temporary side-effects from a light chemical peel including:

  • Redness
  • Stinging
  • Flaking skin
  • Irritation

Recovery time: 1-7 days.


Medium Chemical Peel

How it Works

Using trichloroacetic acid, your skin care specialist will remove dead skin cells from both the outer layer and upper part of your middle layer to reveal healthier, smoother skin below.

  1. Your face will be cleansed.
  2. The chemical solution is brushed onto your skin and left for a few minutes.
  3. The treated area may turn a whitish-grey color
  4. The chemical peel is neutralized with a cool saline compress.
Recovery & Risks

Like with a light chemical peel, you will experience some mild side-effects such as:

  • Redness
  • Irritation
  • Skin crusting
  • Hyper-pigmentation

Recovery time: 7-14 days


Deep Chemical Peel

How it Works

Your skin care specialist will use a strong chemical solution (phenol) to penetrate the lower dermal layer of your skin.

One deep chemical peel treatment will produce long-lasting, dramatic results that can last up to 10 years.

  1. You will be given a local anesthetic to numb your face.
  2. Your face will be cleansed.
  3. Phenol will be brushed onto the area.
  4. The chemical is neutralized with water.
  5. A thick coat of ointment will be smoothed onto your skin to prevent dryness and pain. Sometimes medicated gauze may be used.
Recovery & Risks

Deep chemical peels will result in skin discomfort that may last several days. This includes:

  • Peeling
  • Crusting
  • Skin redness
  • Stinging

Recovery time: 14-21 days

  • Skin discoloration (blotchy complexion, uneven skin tone)
  • Dull complexion
  • Fine lines (especially under the eyes and around the mouth)
  • Sun damaged skin
