A good way to help your skin is to do a peel. This is a way to exfoliate your skin using a formula of natural ingredients. Peels are suitable for all skin types, and can help with your complexion without a long recovery period. You’ll notice after the first session a glow in your skin, while other sessions used to treat something deeper like acne or acne scarring begin to show after a few sessions.

What exactly can chemical peels help with? Acne scarring, acne, dull skin, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation to name a few treatments.


What causes acne scarring?

Your skin tries to heal itself from an injury. While most acne can be superficial, meaning they heal without leaving marks, some can penetrate deeper into the dermis causing a scar. This happens when an infection is present within a follicle or pore and spills out into the dermis, damaging the tissue.

In order to repair it, the skin creates collagen that can lead to a tissue scar called a keloid scar. When tissue damage is too sever, a depressed scan can develop that makes the skin look pitted or pockmarked.


How do I treat Acne Scarring?

Medical grade chemical peels can significantly improve the skin of patients. But the success of your treatment relies on a plan that’s tailored individually to a patient’s needs. At Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic, we assess your skin and set you up with a personalized skincare plan and regimen for you to follow.


Why does my skin dull?

Winter can cause dull skin because the winds are harsh and the temperature is cold. But a dull complexion can be mainly due to exfoliation and not specifically winter related. Winter tends to show more dull skin because dead skin cells and debris clog up your pores faster than in the summer since you’re both indoor and outdoor and facing different temperatures.

When you’re younger, your skin is able to turnover your dead skin cells faster, but once you age the cell turnover slows down. While you would normally see turnover every 3-4 weeks, as you age should expect it to be drawn out from 4 weeks to 4 months. This creates your dull complexion because older skin cells that are clogged are sticking around longer.

To fight this, exfoliation will help remove those cells. The best type of exfoliation would be coming in for a peel every 3 months, and doing a gentle exfoliation at home as well.
