About Medical Services
When it comes to chemical peels, what can I expect from Ottawa MediSpa's Service?
We offer 3 different kinds of Chemical Peels to cater to every client’s skin concern. All our peels are FDA Approved and non-invasive. All our peels are administered by a skin care specialist trained and skilled in skin observation while undergoing a peel treatment for optimal results.
Do I need to prepare for my chemical peel treatment?
We recommend a week prior to treatment, no use of retinol products, exfoliating acids, scrubs, sun exposure, tweezing, waxing, depilatory or prescription creams. All regular skincare routines may resume 2 weeks after a Chemical Peel treatment.
What is the recovery period?
Depending on the customized peel, recovery times are usually 5-14 days. Chemical Peels can vary also depending on the ingredients used as some peels are considered micro peels which usually have no actual shedding of the skin. Some of our Chemical Peels have no downtime or recovery time at all.
Are chemical peels painful?
No, Chemical Peels often result in a slight itching, tightness, dryness or slight sunburn feeling while healing. These are easily remedied with extra moisture and subsides with the healing process.
Are there any risks involved with chemical peels?
When receiving a Chemical Peel clients may experience minor swelling, a shedding of the skin which must be allowed to happen naturally. Clients are encouraged not to pick as the skin peels to avoid any scarring. There is a risk to clients who choose to expose their skin to sun exposure which is not recommended. Clients are provided after care instructions which helps to minimize any risks.
