Medical grade Chemical Peels in Toronto
Beautiful, healthy skin is no longer a dream!
PURE offers Medical Grade Chemical peels as quick and convenient way to enhance appearance and self confidence, and get a healthy glow with little or no downtime.
Chemical Peels have been used for decades to revitalize and resurface skin. They involve applying a chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of skin and reveal a younger, clearer, more radiant complexion. Chemical peels, also known as "Lunchtime Peels" are traditionally performed on the face, hands, neck, back and shoulders, legs and other problem areas to treat fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and skin discoloration. Chemical peels are also effective in treating mild scarring and acne.
Treatments usually last from 15 to 20 minutes and are one of the most effective way to rejuvenate aging skin, and erase the marks of sun damage. Chemical peels may also remove pre-cancerous skin growths, soften acne facial scars and even control acne.
After treatment, the resulting regenerated skin is noticeably smoother and fresher in appearance.
At PURE Laser, we offer TCA, Glycolic, Lactic and Salicylic Acid peels. The type of treatment which is right for you will be determined by you and your PURE consultant to provide you with the greatest benefits.
Types of Peels We Offer:
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) - TCA can be used in many concentrations, but it is most commonly used for medium-depth peeling. Fine surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes and pigment problems are commonly treated with TCA.
Alphahydroxy acids (AHA) - such as glycolic, lactic, or fruit acids are the mildest of the peel formulas and produce light peels. These types of peels can provide smoother, brighter-looking skin for people who can't spare the time to recover from a phenol or TCA peel. AHA peels may be used to treat fine wrinkling, areas of dryness, uneven pigmentation and acne.
Pure Laser also provides Physician’s Choice of Arizona (PCA) peels including:
Salicylic acid – The keratolytic action of these treatments helps to smooth surface texture, clear blocked follicles and reduce the incidence of breakouts.
PCA Peel ® Exfoliating Treatments. These patented and proven light-to-medium peel formulas effectively exfoliate, bleach and inhibit pigment production. These peels help to repair and reduce breakouts, control oil, soften lines and provide a more even, smooth skin texture. PCA Peel ® exfoliating treatments are available in the following three formulas:
- PCA Peel ® HQ Free (non-resorcinol) Exfoliating Treatment. This peel is ideal for more sensitive skin types (ethnic skin) or those allergic to hydroquinone. This peel will help to unclog pores, clear acne and rejuvenate the skin. It is also an excellent choice for maintaining even pigmentation and correcting pigment discolorations for those with hydroquinone sensitivities.
- PCA Peel ® with Hydroquinone (non-resorcinol) Exfoliating Treatment. This formula is for those who want even skin tone and have no sensitivity to hydroquinone. It will also help to correct melasma, sun damage and pigment discolorations of any kind. In addition, this peel will inhibit active acne and correct post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (brown-spotting) from acne.
- PCA Peel ® with Hydroquinone & Resorcinol Exfoliating Treatment. This peel is the most potent formula of the PCA Peel® treatments. It will provide more exfoliation for oilier, thicker and resilient skin types. It is effective on extremely sun damaged and thickened skin. It is also excellent for those with active/cystic acne and asphyxiated skin (dry on the surface, oily underneath).
- Ultra Peel ® I and II Exfoliating Treatments. Specially formulated to treat dehydrated, maturing skin, Ultra Peel® I is also appropriate for many skin types, conditions and sensitivities. It will help treat smoker’s skin, pigment disorders, sun damaged skin and acne. This treatment is especially ideal for sensitive skin, as it produces only a mild tingling sensation. Moderate to aggressive exfoliation will be experienced, depending on the number of layers applied. Overall, the final result will be plump, hydrated and ultra-soft skin.
Ultra Peel® Forte Exfoliating Treatment. Those with resilient skin who have more dramatic wrinkling, sun damage and acne scarring are the most suitable candidates for this deeper and more active treatment. Ultra Peel® Forte will effectively treat aging skin, acne, pigment disorders, smoker’s skin and photodamaged skin. This treatment is ideal for dehydrated and aging skin in need of rejuvenation.
Sensi Peel ® Exfoliating Treatment. This gentle solution is formulated primarily for ethnic skin, and other extremely sensitive skin types. Sensi Peel® will strengthen and brighten the skin while helping to treat sun damage and other forms of hyperpigmentation (skin discoloration). This multi-faceted treatment also provides anti-inflammatory, anti-acne and antibacterial action, making it an excellent choice for helping calm rosacea, as redness and inflammation can subside substantially after treatment.

It's main source of nutrition, pumpkin, offers more than 100 beneficial components, including the highest concentration of natural vitamins A, C, and beta-carotene. The Pumpkin Peel has simultaneous actions; it exfoliates and draws impurities out of the skin while introducing vitamins, enzymes and nutrients into the skin. It is an excellent treatment for smokers as it stimulates circulation, promotes healing and provides vitamin nutrition. This treatment is also excellent for smoothing the skin as salicylic acid removes the dead cells that cause a rough texture. As with all other PCA treatments there is no downtime. In fact, the skin will be glowing and extremely healthy-looking following the treatment.
