Chemical Peels offer Skin Resurfacing that aggressively removes hyperpigmentation, fine lines, acne breakouts, and acne scars. After a Complimentary Skin Analysis, a Health Canada approved formula by either Alumier or Vivier Pharma is applied to the skin to lower the pH. This loosens the connections between dead skin cells, inducing exfoliation and stimulating new cell growth. This process causes superficial layers of dead skin to flake or peel off, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. Chemical peels can also thicken the epidermis, increase dermal volume and stimulate collagen.
Peels can also be used to treat:
Fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth
Wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
Improve the appearance of mild scars
Certain types of acne
Reduce age spots
Dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills
Improve the look and feel of skin
Peels can be applied to the following areas:
Décolleté / Chest
10% Lactic Acid, 2% Salicylic Acid, 14% Resorxinol

Alumier's Glow Peel is a light- to medium-depth peel as it exfoliates multiple levels of the epidermis, and can penetrate down to the papillary dermis (the uppermost layer of the dermis), if necessary. It's safe for all skin types on the Fitzpatrick Scale. It can also be customized to your specific needs based on your skin type and the issue you want to correct. We do this by adjusting the strength of the peel through the number of layers applied.
This combination of ingredients is strong enough to provide effective treatment, yet gentle enough to require minimal downtime.
For complete skin revitalization, chemical peel treatments can be combined with other anti-aging, non-surgical procedures we perform. In addition, to maintain your results for a longer period of time, we recommend following your treatments with the high-quality Alumier MD® products available.
After Your Chemical Peel
To ensure optimal results and avoid complications, it's important for you to follow your post care instructions, and properly care for your skin after you've had a chemical peel.
To help you with your aftercare, we include a Post-Peel Prescription with your Alumier MD® Glow Peel.
To help calm, soothe and protect your skin for the few couple days immediately following your chemical peel, this kit contains three high-quality products:
Soothing recovery cream
Chemical Peel Timeline
After your chemical peel procedure, you can expect to see the following results at these time intervals:
8 – 12 Hours
When you leave the clinic after your chemical peel, you may have a slight yellow tinge or shine/glow to your face. You will not be able to wash your face until the next morning, as the peel needs to remain on your skin for a minimum of eight hours to be fully effective.
The next day (or later that evening, depending on what time your peel was applied), you'll cleanse the treated area with a dime-sized amount of the Alumier MD® Cleanser, rinse with warm water, and pat dry. Do not scrub.
Next, apply a nickel-sized amount of Alumier MD® Recovery Cream to help inhibit redness and inflammation. If you'll be outside during the day, apply the Alumier MD® Sunscreen for broad-spectrum UV protection. Throughout the day, you can reapply the Recovery Cream and sunscreen as necessary to keep your skin protected and comfortable.
24 – 48 Hours
The skin on your treated area will begin to feel very dry and tight. You may observe some spontaneous peeling. If you had the chemical peel on your face, the peeling will usually start around your mouth, but it can start on any area of your face. Your skin may also turn brown, become tight, and then peel. During this entire period, and through all of these events, it's very important to keep your skin hydrated.
3 – 7 Days
Your skin will continue to peel. DO NOT PICK OR PULL AT YOUR SKIN. This can cause skin discoloration, and/or scarring.
If you experience blistering, apply polysporin—an over-the-counter antibiotic ointment or cream—and return to the clinic so we can assess your condition. You may also experience acne breakouts, and/or continued redness in the treated area. This is because the peel has brought that to the surface of your skin. You will continue to peel up to seven days or more after your chemical peel is performed.
7 – 10 Days and Beyond
Once your skin has stopped peeling, you'll see clear, healthy, new skin on the treated area. We highly recommend you continue to keep your skin hydrated, and protect it with sunscreen to avoid damaging your newly revealed skin.
