Do you look in the mirror and feel dismayed by the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and surface-level acne scarring?
If you are miserable with your skin, you’ve probably tried everything to fix it. You may have tried over-the-counter lotions and creams to address these issues, but with limited results. That’s because these things only penetrate the most superficial layers of the skin, and are not strong enough to make any lasting improvement or impact.
It’s time to do something that actually works. We will set you up with a professional chemical peel that targets even the peskiest skin concerns that Sephora can’t fix.
Professional chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that involve a specially-formulated chemical solution applied to your face by one of our medical aestheticians. This chemical solution safely and effectively causes the dead, topmost, superficial layers of the skin to exfoliate and peel off, revealing fresh, healthy, new and younger-looking skin. Our patients not only report glowing, youthful and balanced skin, they are ready to take on the world with confidence!
Chemical peels are most often applied to the face, but they can also be applied to the neck and hands. Treating your skin to chemical peels at our top Toronto medical spa is one of the most effective ways to treat signs of aging, discoloration, and UV damage. That’s not all – chemical peels can also correct damaged skin, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin texture, fine lines, and wrinkles. Chemical peels also improve overall skin health by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, which helps stabilize skin function and support skin renewal. All of these benefits result in beautiful, radiant, smooth, even-toned and luminous skin.
There are three different types of chemical peels available:
- Superficial chemical peels: These chemical peels use very mild acids (such as alpha-hydroxy acids, popularly known as AHAs) to exfoliate and penetrate only the outermost layer of skin. This type of peel is perfect to give your skin a pick-me-up.
- Medium chemical peels: These chemical peels use stronger acids (trichloroacetic (TCA) or glycolic) to penetrate not only the outer layer of the skin, but the middle layers of skin as well. This type of peel is perfect for mild scarring or mild imperfections.
- Deep chemical peels: These extra-strength chemical peels use much stronger acids (phenol or trichloroacetic (TCA))) to penetrate and impact the middle layer of skin. This type of peel is perfect to target deep issues, deep scarring and more complex concerns.
When over-the-counter products aren’t helping, you can turn to us for help. Our skin specialists are here for you, here to recommend the right treatment for you, and here to answer all of your questions and concerns.

At Therapeutic Aesthetics, all our chemical peels are performed in our medical spa. Our medical spa offers the hygiene and clinical facilities of a medical clinic, as well as the relaxation and ambience of a spa. Depending on the type of peel you are having, topical or regional anesthetics may be applied to the target area to keep you comfortable during the procedure.
To begin, we will first cleanse your skin and apply eye protection if needed. During your chemical peel, a chemical solution will be applied to your skin using a cotton ball, gauze, or brush. As your skin starts to whiten, you may experience a stinging sensation.
Your provider will then remove the chemical solution and/or apply a neutralizing solution to your skin.
Chemical peels generally take up to an hour in most cases, and are the perfect appointment to schedule during your lunch break.
