Chemical Peels Ottawa

For smooth, healthy, glowing skin

Chemical peels are designed to:

• soften fine lines and wrinkles
• provide more even skin tone
• smooth skin texture
• fade age spots and sun-spots
• calm rosacea and red, irritated skin

Peels work by applying a chemical solution to the skin, which loosens and removes the older, surface layers of the skin. At the same time, vitamins and anti-oxidants are added to nourish, strengthen and protect the underlying skin. Leaving you with a fresh, glowing, healthy complexion.

The Kanata Skin Clinic is one of the few clinics in Ottawa to offer the Vivier Peel™ and the Skin Tx®  Jessner Plus™ Chemical Peels.  Both are trusted world-leaders in the development of gentle, yet highly-effective peels. So your treatment will be relaxing and enjoyable, while still giving you the results you want.

Frequently Asked Questions

+ Is a chemical peel right for me?

Each person's skin is unique. And everyone has their own unique concerns.

Your skin's appearance is determined by a combination of factors, including your genetics, your lifestyle and how you care for your skin.

In addition, everyone has their own personal preferences. Some prefer laser treatments. Others might want to use skin care products only.

That's why it's important to book a consultation. This will give us the chance to actually see your skin and discuss your concerns. And it will allow us to make suggestions based on your own preferences and the results you want to see.

+ Does a peel hurt? Is it uncomfortable?

This depends on your individual pain tolerance. Most people are surprised at how relaxing and comfortable their treatments are.

In any case, the aesthetician will monitor your treatment and can neutralize it at any time, if it becomes uncomfortable.

+ What will I look like right after the treatment?

You will leave your appointment with a clean, healthy glow. No one would know you just had a chemical peel.

+ Will I blister or peel a few days after the treatment?

Not usually, but it depends on the strength of the treatment. Our peels are designed to be gentle, yet effective. It is possible to achieve excellent results without peeling at all.

If you have had a stronger treatment, you may experience some light peeling, much like you would if you had a mild sunburn.
this is the answer

+ How many treatments will I need?

That depends on what you are treating and how aggressively you wish to deal with it.

If you are simply looking for a healthy glow, one treatment may be enough.

However, if you wish to treat redness, pigmentation or fine wrinkles more treatments may be required.

Once you achieve the results you want, you may wish to come in for another treatment now and then in order to maintain your results.
