A chemical peel is a common process to even out the skins appearance, tighten skin, reduce wrinkling and remove other signs of sun-damage and aging for a more youthful appearance. Dr. Gregory Antoniak’s medical aestheticians perform Chemical Peels for patients from Ottawa, Ontario, and throughout Canada.
During your initial consultation with our physician we will assess the advantages and disadvantages of the different types of chemical peels, talk about your options, your expectations and determine the best treatment for you.
Most patients describe the procedure as a warm to hot sensation which may last as long as ten minutes, followed by a stinging sensation. After a chemical peel, reactions are similar to a mild sunburn; generally, the deeper the peel, the longer the recovery. Following a chemical peel, your new skin will be smoother, tighter and may be a little lighter than it was before the procedure.
