About clinical peels in Victoria.
Maintaining smooth, even skin with refined pores is possible for Victoria and Vancouver Island residents thanks to clinical peels at Cosmedica. These quick and non-invasive treatments are a proven and safe way to activate cell renewal and revive a tired or dull complexion. Also known as a chemical peel, a clinical peel is composed primarily of alpha and beta hydroxy acids known for their skin health benefits, which include smoothing fine lines, improving hydration, activating cell renewal, refining pores, minimizing and controlling acne blemishes, and improving skin texture.
Clinical peels help with:
- skin texture & tone
- sun damage
How it works:
A thin layer of a carefully chosen, custom clinical peel solution is applied to the skin over a period of seconds to minutes, depending on your skin’s needs and the desired outcome. A tingling or stinging sensation may be experienced as the peel releases dull, damaged skin cells. Once the peel has been neutralized and removed, fresh, new and rehydrated skin is revealed. When scheduled consistently, chemical peels for acne are highly effective at managing chronic symptoms, breakouts and minimizing subsequent scarring. Most clinical peels are mild and incur no downtime and no significant peeling; at most, some mild flushing and dryness may occur for a few days following a treatment.
