Rejuvenate Your Skin
At Toronto Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments that will leave you with smoother, more youthful looking skin.
A chemical peel is a common procedure used to remove the superficial layers of the skin in order to allow new and healthier skin to grow. This induces collagen production, tightens the skin and removes fine wrinkling, sun damaged skin and some pigmentation problems.
Chemical peels have been a practiced cosmetic procedure since ancient times. The Egyptians, Greeks and Romans used various types of topical solutions derived from plants to improve skin conditions. Within the past century, more powerful chemicals such as trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and different phenol formulations have become popular. It is important to understand the different types of peels and discuss which one is best for your skin type and specific goals.
Peels are attractive to many patients because of the predictability of their results, their strong safety record, and because we have the ability to tailor the procedure to the specific needs of the patient.

Types Of Chemical Peels
Light peels are good for any superficial concerns and are successfully used by Dr. Gantous and our esthetician Emma.
Medium peels are more concentrated and penetrate deeper. They can be beneficial for acne breakouts, scars and soften the appearance of fine lines.
Deep peels are beneficial for those with more severe wrinkles and scarring. Deep peels involve downtime and are usually performed by Dr. Gantous while patients are under general anesthesia.
Dr. Gantous uses 35% TCA peels for the treatment of fine lines around the eyes and lips and for rejuvenation of the entire face. Chemical peels can benefit anyone, they stimulate cell turnover, collagen production, and brightens and hydrates the skin from within.
The procedure is usually performed on patients in the office and does not require any anesthesia. The recovery period ranges from a few days to one week depending on the individual.
Peels are almost always paired with a good skin care program in order to both prepare the skin pre-treatment, and to maintain the results long term.
