Medical Peel Toronto

According to your, individual needs, we’ll apply one or more layers of the solution. The duration of treatment will depend on the customized parameters of the product, the skin type and the skin’s response. Once the active ingredients have completed their work, the gel will either self-neutralize or be neutralized using a buffer solution.

This liquid exfoliation treatment prompts the skin to naturally regenerate and reveal clearer, brighter skin for an improved appearance. It’s ideal for busy people on the go, who want a light peel without intense recovery.

Choosing Vivier for your medical peel in Toronto

The Vivier Peel is a unique medical peel treatment that does wonders for the skin. Its formula combines key ingredients providing therapeutic effects to improve complexions and impart a healthy glow.

Using the SkinCeuticals Gel Peel, we typically recommend a series of six medical peel treatments spaced a week apart. After that, maintenance of your rejuvenated complexion can be scheduled once per month. Since the SkinCeuticals Gel Peel is a superficial medical peel, this type of monthly program works well for achieving optimal results without any harsh effects or lengthy downtime to worry about.

For our SkinCeuticals Gel Peel clients, we also recommend the use of a topical antioxidant serum that contains alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) or fruit acids, and a broad-spectrum sunscreen. The partnering of these additional skincare products offers continuous protection so patients can experience the full procedure benefits.

Benefits of Medical Peel

Vivier Peels contain 10% lactic acid, (derived from milk) that helps increase hydration in overly sensitive, parched skin. 2% salicylic acid treats acne and oil, improves texture, and decreases post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. 14% resorcinol eases inflammation, redness and blemishes. This formula also encourages the extraction of dust and debris that clog skin pores and dull the uppermost skin layer. This powerful combination has fast become a patient favourite in Toronto for medical peel benefits.

In addition to lactic acid, salicylic acid and resorcinol, here are some other ingredients that are found in a Vivier medical peel that provide clients with cosmetic benefits:

  • Alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) allows for deep penetration to effectively deliver the therapeutic ingredients. That results in a higher rate of cell desquamation and softer, smoother skin.
  • Beta-hydroxy acid (BHA), unlike AHA, is not a single substance but rather a group of organic acids. They’re commonly sourced from fruits and willow tree bark; thus BHA is very natural. The primary purpose of BHA in a Vivier peel is to gently exfoliate, remove dirt and debris. BHA helps clear out pores to improve acne, blackheads and whiteheads. It’s also anti-inflammatory and helps reduce redness in the skin.
  • Resorcinol has additional benefits in a Vivier Peel. It has antibacterial properties and destroys the harmful bacteria that causes acne. Resorcinol can also soften tough skin, promote collagen production and create a fresher appearance.
  • Peptides are a common ingredient for today’s skin care products because of the transformative anti-aging benefits they trigger. With their own patented peptides, Vivier Peels penetrate and function deep in the skin layers. Through cell signalling, these messengers communicate with cells to promote repair and rejuvenation.
  • Panthenol is a form of vitamin B5 that moisturizes and heals the skin.

Benefits of Viver Peel

Clients choose the Vivier Peel because of benefits such as:

  • Reduce and minimize redness of the skin
  • Result in smoother, firmer skin due to natural stimulation of collagen and elastin
  • Create a more-even tone of skin through diminished hyperpigmentation
  • Tighten pores, reduce acne, blackheads and whiteheads
  • Increase skin suppleness
  • Provide a fresh and healthy glow to skin surface

Types of Medical Peel

There are two types of Vivier Peel that we offer at the Verso Surgery Centre: the Vivier Glow Peel and the Vivier Jessner Plus Peel.

The Vivier Glow is perfect for rejuvenating the skin on the face, neck and chest. It’s very gentle but delivers effective microexfoliation to achieve brighter and tighter skin that leaves clients feeling radiant. This medical peel treatment is recommended by our skincare professionals for those who wish to combat aging, fine lines, wrinkles and sun spots or treat acne. Because it’s so gentle, the peel is suitable for all skin types- even clients with rosacea and sensitive skin.

The Vivier Jessner Plus Peel is another lunchtime treatment well-suited for the face, chest, back and arms. The medical peel treatment is uniquely recommended for clients who need controlled exfoliation on damaged skin. It’s considered to be a medium to deep chemical peel and can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, laxity, enlarged pores, acne, damage from sun exposure and melasma.

The formula induces superficial peeling of the uppermost layers of skin and is particularly useful for clients with thick and oily skin. The key medicinal ingredient in this medical peel is salicylic acid, which allows deep penetration of the skin and can effectively remove congested sebum and dead cells. The Vivier Jessner Peel also includes 14% lactic acid and 14% resorcinol for all their added benefits in targeting hyperpigmentation, signs of aging and blemishes.

How many sessions do I need?

Clients will typically notice an improvement in their skin quality after just one treatment session with this medical peel. However, our skincare experts recommend three to six treatments for optimal results when significant texture or skin tone changes are desired.

Note that you’ll require at least a few days of downtime for peeling post-Jessner, though this isn’t a painful process. The flaking skin will reveal a fresh new complexion. Your skin care expert will let you know how to plan and care for your results.

Alumier MD is a top choice for our Verso clients and skincare professionals because it offers a comfortable experience and requires minimal downtime after. These medical peels work to lift the old, dead skin layers and reveal fresh, healthy epidermis cells, without discomfort or damage.

It’s an ideal choice and favourite of first-time users of medical peels, and our skincare professionals recommend it for those with sensitive skin.

AHA Duo – the AHA Duo chemical peel from Alumier MD combines 20% glycolic acid for deeper penetrance and exfoliation of the skin and 10% lactic acid for excellent brightening and hydrating effects. Our experts choose this treatment for clients with normal or combination skin in need of a balanced approach.

The Glow – this Alumier MD chemical peel is offered for multiple skin concerns. It combines salicylic acid, lactic acid and resorcinol in a 7% formula for profound effects.
