Chemical Peels in Vancouver

Refresh and Renew Your Skin

An Easy Complexion Treatment

Chemical Peels can be used to help both men and women reduce common surface issues like lines, wrinkles, age spots, and uneven skin pigmentation. Glycolic peels can also work for anyone wanting to treat acne and renew their skin.

There are different types of Chemical Peels that vary in strength–the stronger the chemical peel, the deeper into the surface of the skin it works, and also, the longer the recovery. Chemical Peels remove that damaged outer layer of skin to reveal the fresh, new skin beneath and it can also stimulate your bodies own production of collagen which can enhance skin firmness and improve skin texture.

The formulations that you’ll receive have been developed by molecular biologists, biophysicists, dermatologists and plastic surgeons. They have been rigorously tested to prove their safety and effectiveness. In fact, numerous studies have shown that the therapeutic ingredients in our formulations can dramatically resolve complexion problems.

  • A moderate to significant improvement in melasma (hyperpigmentation) was achieved in patients with darker skin, who experienced no adverse effects to their overall pigmentation, as reported in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery.
  • Hyaluronic acid and collagen levels were found to noticeably increase, resulting in a remodeling of the skin at a cellular level, as reported in Dermatologic Surgery, the journal of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.
  • A significant reduction in fine lines and wrinkles was reported by female patients between the ages of 35 and 60 years old in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology.

How Glycolic Peel Treatments Work

Glycolic peel treatments provide skin care that focuses on resurfacing and renewing the skin. Glycolic peels safely remove a micro thin top layer of skin and are used to treat acne prone skin, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and discoloration. A glycolic treatment will increase circulation to the skin, loosen oil and dirt that builds up in the pores, minimize the appearance of acne and stimulate the production of collagen. A peel can help bring back a healthy and revitalized glow to your skin and it can improve the texture and firmness of your skin. These peels are excellent at exfoliating the skin and assists with skin rehydration.

Our peels give you an immediate improvement that is readily noticeable. You’ll feel how much smoother your skin will be right after your treatment! Because there is no downtime, you’ll be able to get right back to your regular daily activities — you can even reapply your makeup if you’re going out or returning to work. In the days following your treatment, you’ll see a number of complexion problems fade until they’re far less noticeable than before, or even non-existent. You can address the following concerns:

  • fine lines
  • wrinkles
  • discoloration
  • dullness
  • roughness
  • uneven textures
  • dark spots
  • enlarged pores
  • pigmented acne scars
  • acne breakouts

The success of your treatment relies on the expertise of the talented medical aestheticians at Heights Laser. They will individualize your treatment to address your particular concerns.

Your Chemical Peel Journey to Clear Skin

For over a decade, we have supported Vancouver and Burnaby patients with high-quality aesthetic treatments focused on their goals and their comfort. Our staff, led by head physician Dr. Perhez Jaffer, offer a warm and friendly environment for patients. Come for an appointment, and you will immediately feel at ease with our approach and the personal attention we provide.

Your First Visit

Your first visit is for your private consultation with our chemical peel expert. You'll have the opportunity to describe your concerns and what you want to achieve. Because the Heights Laser Centre team provides individualized care to each patient, we can develop a plan based on your unique needs.  

Your Examination

Our medical aesthetician will conduct a thorough examination of your skin to create a customized treatment plan. This recommendation will be based on your goals, needs, and health background. After the exam, you'll find out how many sessions you may need and the cost.

What to Expect with Glycolic Peel Treatments

Glycolic peels are easily done, typically last 15 minutes, and require no down time. There may be a slight stinging sensation when the glycolic peel is applied. Vancouver patients will often notice that their skin is smoother and has a better tone even after one treatment, but best results are seen after a series of treatments three to four weeks apart. For optimum results, glycolic treatments must be followed with appropriate home skincare.

You’ll likely find that this treatment plan is most effective in achieving the results you want. In addition to the immediate improvements you’ll see and feel following every session, you’ll also find that your skin gets better and better as the days pass. This time is necessary to allow your skin to rebuild itself at the cellular level with boosted levels of collagen and hyaluronic acid, making it stronger and more youthful.

To complement your in-clinic treatment, a customized daily skincare regimen will be designed so that you can accelerate your results and maintain them.
