Chemical peels are grouped into various categories based on the peel depth and strength of solution used to induce the peel. All of the skin peel procedures at Allure Plastic Surgery are done by an experienced and certified medical aesthetician. The peeling process involves a number of important steps. First, the most ideal type of peel that best suits your specific skin care goals and situations is chosen. The skin is then prepared by either using dermaplaning or enzyme mask to allow for penetration of the chemical peel solution. The desired chemical agent is then applied, thereby causing the skin to exfoliate. The peeling agent, after a designated time, is then neutralized and washed off. Finally, sun block and topical healing agents are administered. In the next couple of days, the top skin layers heal leaving a regenerated, smoother and more evenly colored skin surface.
Light chemical peels require little downtime and exfoliate the upper layer of the cells of the skin, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion. For superficial peels, some of the commonly used chemicals include salicylic acid, Jessner’s solution and glycolic acid. Normally, the more superficial a peel is, the more superficial the correction and also the lower the risk of complications. We carry out light peel procedures by applying a power peel (microdermabrasion) or glycolic acid which polishes the skin gently with fine crystals. Our peels don’t require any downtime and patents continue to get better results with each subsequent visit. A series of 8 to 10 light chemical peels provides an excellent improvement of skin pores and tones.
Medium depth chemical peels generally use a combination of 35% trichloracetic acid and Jessner’s solution. For patients with an increased number of fine lines and brown spots and severe sun damage, a medium depth chemical peel is required. Deep peels normally require more downtime, nonetheless, they are an excellent way of improving texture, pigmentation, tone and fine lines. Our chemical peels (TCA and/or Jessner’s) provide medium depth peeling that aids in reduce fine lines, mild scarring and damage by revealing glowing, fresh skin. We usually perform this procedure in our offices without using any anesthesia on the patients. A single application of our highly effective peeling agents produces a nice peel which heals up within 5 days.

Jessner’s is a versatile chemical peel and a favourite among dermatologists. The Jessner’s peel solution comprises of 14% salicylic acid and 14% lactic acid peeling agent and a resorcinol solvent. It is a strong solution known to deliver great results.
Aside from being a great facial treatment, we also use Jenner’s peel on patients to treat acne and lighten hyperpigmentation areas, aging skin, and acne-scarring and photo damage. Repeated application of Jessner’s solution on the patient’s skin is done until a white frost is developed and which usually takes four to six coats. A temporary numbing and stinging sensation may be noted upon initial contact and minor skin sensitivity as well as light to moderate redness, however, this does not require anesthesia.
After a couple of days, the upper layer of skin naturally flakes or peels away, revealing smoother, clearer skin. A Jessner’s chemical peel is a continuous treatment that provides excellent results with regular applications. We often advice patients to have us perform the procedure on them on a monthly basis until the desired results are realized.

The peels even out and brighten your skin tone by removing pre-cancerous areas, repairing sun-damaged skin cells, and stimulating the formation of collagen for a younger, healthier looking complexion.
