Smooth, healthy skin can contribute to you feeling vibrant, youthful, and attractive. Chemical peel treatments are designed to diminish blemishes and revitalize your skin. Regular treatments can help to correct skin pigmentation, mild sun damage, wrinkles and acne, providing you with skin that feels smoother and healthier.
False Creek Healthcare’s skincare professionals are experienced with a variety of chemical peel treatments, including the Vitalize and TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) peels, and will determine the right treatment for your specific skin type. Chemical Peels in conjunction with skincare products are an excellent way to maintain the results of a surgical or non-surgical treatment.
A medium-depth peel formulation, TCA peels minimize the effects of sun-damaged, dry or flaky skin, keratosis (thick skin patches), age spots and dark spots. Shedding the outer layer of skin can also improve acne and blackheads. Learn more about TCA peels.

About the Treatment
The chemical solution is applied directly to your skin and is removed after a period of time dependent on the treatment chosen for your skin type. The depth of the exfoliation and strength of the solution also depends on the type of chemical peel used in the treatment.
Upon application, the solution produces a separation and peeling of the outer layers of the skin. This stimulates the production of fresh skin underneath. Most patients experience a mildly warm to hot sensation, which can last up to ten minutes and is often followed by a stinging sensation.
Over time, chemical peel treatments can train the skin to function differently. Regular treatment can address chronic problems, smooth away wrinkles, and keep skin healthier with fewer dead skin cells, more uniform pigmentation, and healthy natural oil production. Acne, rosacea, and other skin conditions will fade to reveal the healthy, natural glow underneath.
