Whether you require acne treatment or are looking for a quick and safe anti-aging procedure, the customized chemical peels at our Kelowna skin clinic can ensure your skin retains is healthy, beautiful glow for many years to come.


What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is an advanced and effective skin care treatment which uses a chemical solution (such as glycolic acid) to gently exfoliate the outer layers of dead skin, revealing a new skin layer with improved tone, texture and color.

Depending on the severity of your skin condition, there are three types of chemical peels available:

Superficial or ‘Lunchtime’ Peel

Also known as a glycolic acid peel, a superficial chemical peel removes only the upper-level of dead and damaged skin cells and encourages skin cell regeneration. It can be used for concerns including:

  • Mild skin discoloration

  • Uneven pigmentation

  • Chronic dry skin

Medium Chemical Peel

During a medium chemical peel, the skin specialist will use beta-hydroxy or trichloroacetic acid to penetrate the outer and middle layers of skin to remove damaged/dead skin cells.

It can be used for:

  • Improving age spots

  • Eliminating fine lines and wrinkles

  • Moderate skin discoloration

  • Actinic keratosis

Deep Chemical Peel

A deep chemical peel is the most aggressive option in which trichloroacetic acid is applied to deeply penetrate the skin and remove any damaged cells.

It is can be used effectively for:

  • Acne treatment

  • Deep wrinkles and facial lines

  • Age spots

  • Blotchiness

At our Kelowna skin clinic, our chemical peels begin with an in-depth, personalized consultation to assess your specific aesthetic goals and skin type so that we can select the appropriate medical grade peel for you.


Chemical Peels for Acne Treatment

At our Kelowna skin clinic, we offer a wide range of acne treatments, one of which is chemical peels, which can be applied to the face and neck. This cosmetic procedure has proven effective in restoring even skin tone and dramatically reducing the appearance of acne scars.

 Some of the best chemical peels for acne treatments include:

1. Glycolic Acid Chemical Peel (SUPERFICIAL)

Glycolic acid is one of the most useful and commonly used products in acne treatments and works by gently removing the top layer of your skin, removing dead skin cells that clog up your skin. 

This exfoliation method removes old cells, revealing healthier, newer ones so that your skin looks and feels much smoother. Some of the benefits of using glycolic acid for your acne treatment include:

  • It helps your skin retain moisture
  • Boosts your skin’s natural exfoliating process
  • Reduces the marks and spots left behind by acne
  • Doesn’t require extensive downtime

3. Phenol Chemical Peel (DEEP)

A phenol chemical peel is a more powerful and aggressive form of acne treatment and has the capacity to rectify substantial skin damage. It permeates much deeper into the skin, and while it comes with more risks than a mild chemical peel, it causes substantial skin exfoliation for more dramatic results.

Some of benefits of this acne treatment include:

  • Short treatment time
  • Results can be seen in as little as 7 days
  • More dramatic results than a lighter chemical peel
  • Fewer acne treatments required

3. Trichloroacetic Chemical Peel (MEDIUM)

Trichloroacetic peels are a medium-grade chemical peel which has been used very successfully for acne treatments and are aimed at repairing and reviving damaged skin. It can be used successfully for:

  • Acne scars
  • Skin discoloration
  • Evening out skin texture
  • Reducing lesion counts

With our customized trichloroacetic acne treatments, our patients usually experience improved color and texture of their skin as well as extensive smoothing of acne scars and wrinkles.
