Glycolic Peels

Neostrata Logo

The Toronto Centre for Advanced Skin Repair utilizes glycolic acid peels to exfoliate superficial skin cells and thus stimulate growth of younger, fresher, healthier skin as well as collagen.

Fruit acids have been used by island tribes and eastern cultures for their restorative effects.

Depressed acne scars are smoothed out and filled with plumper cells and an increased collagen matrix. Damaged skin in the form of pigmented scars are effectively erased.

The Toronto Centre for Advanced Skin Repair glycolic peel programs start you off on a two-week prep period using an 8% acid strength. This is an at home prep as well as a maintenance program between peels. Then, we begin our in office peels starting at 20% and carefully increasing to 70% pure gycolic acid.
