The chemical peel program is an essential step after the preparation stage in order to further improve your skin condition.
During your chemical peel treatment, Dr. Zakhary will gently apply the chemical liquid (for example: glycolic acid or trichloracetic acid TCA) to your skin to exfoliate the top most layer of collected dead skin and reorganize your collagen and elastic skin fibres.
The actual treatment is safe, and allows patients to achieve fresher and better looking skin quickly, and without the risks and complications of more invasive procedures. Chemical peels can give your skin a nice healthy glow in around 30 minutes.

A series of Chemical peels can help to improve your overall skin appearance by: reducing acne outbreaks in acne prone skin, reducing fine facial wrinkles and lines, smoothening rough flaky skin, lightening brown pigmentation, and lightening sun or age spots. Chemical peels are also a great option for skin improvement before or after other facial plastic surgery and non surgical procedures. As in any cosmetic facial procedure, it is important to have realistic expectations and follow the doctor's recommendations for optimal results, and the improvements can vary from patient to patient.
Dr. Zakhary's skin therapy regimen is appropriate and safe for almost every skin type, but you should take care to advise Dr. Zakhary and postpone your chemical peel for at least 1 week if you have a sun burn, cold sore, or if you have been using Vitamin A creams. You should also be careful to avoid using exfoliating agents or creams for up to 5 days after your chemical peel treatment, since your skin will be more sensitive to injury, and to practice good sun protection with Sunscreen to avoid sun damage.
Dr. Zakhary also recommends that you continue on going good medical therapy skin creams after your chemical peel treatments so that you can maintain your good skin condition. These treatments are not usually available in a spa or medical day spa since they require proper medical supervision. Be reassured that the Chemical Peels that Dr. Zakhary performs are exclusive to facial plastic surgery and cosmetic dermatology offices, such as Dr. Zakhary's clinic in Calgary, in which the treatments are performed and supervised by a qualified medical doctor.
