Do you have a wedding, birthday party or graduation around the corner? Perhaps you are simply in need of a quick skin �pick-me-up�? Then look no further than a medical-grade chemical peel - a potent, yet rejuvenating facial peel. Also known as �the red carpet peel,� this medical-grade peel is a quick and easy treatment that will leave your skin glowing!

Meet Our 8 West Medical Aesthetic Team 

Located in Vancouver, BC, 8 West Cosmetic Surgery and Skin Clinic is home to a team of skin experts that specialize in a range of medical aesthetic treatments, including medical-grade chemical peels. Hand-picked by dual-board certified facial and plastic surgeon, Dr. Thomas Buonassisi, our medical aesthetic team knows skin and are here to assess your skin and provide a customized treatment plan to achieve your dream results.

Why We Love This Treatment

Medical-grade peels work to improve the health of your skin through exfoliation, cellular stimulating and a calming post-treatment masque that is beneficial for any skin type.Chemical peels are designed to target and treat acne, melasma, discolouration, sun damage, fine lines, texture roughness, large pores, and skin dullness. The result is a softer, smoother and glowing appearance of the skin.

What To Expect

A medical-grade chemical peel is an experience that you can look forward to, almost like a relaxing spa treatment with an extra kick! You will sit back and relax on a treatment bed as our medical aestheticians cleanse, exfoliate, and place active skincare ingredients on your skin to complete the peel. Depending on the intensity of the peel, you may feel some light tingling (known as activation), which your treatment provider will guide you through.During your treatment, the peel will work to power away dead cells to illuminate the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, clogged pores and blemishes. The magic doesn�t stop there though, as your skin will work post-treatment to support collagen growth for firmer-looking skin over time.


Ask your aesthetician which medical-grade chemical peel will best target your skin�s individual needs:The Ormedic Lift uses organic active enzymes with medical effectiveness to re-balance, detoxify and soothe the skin. This peel is for first acne/break-out prone skin or unbalanced skin.The Signature Lift uses vitamin C, hyaluronic acid & a blend of enzymes that lightens, tightens & brightens the skin. This peel is ideal for sensitive skin that is prone to redness, and rosacea.The Lightening Lift uses a combination of lactic & kojic acids to brighten the complexion. This peel is suggested for those with uneven skin tone, discoloration and dark spots.The Acne Lift uses a combination of alpha & beta hydroxy acids to reduce redness, restore balance and even skin tone. This peel is great for treating and healing mild to moderate acne lesions.The Perfection Lift is the most potent and powerful peel we offer that uses a blend of beta hydroxy acids, resorcinol, anti-oxidants, peptides & stem cells. Perfect for advanced skin discolouration, breakouts, rough texture & wrinkles.Once you have completed your treatment, you can expect mild or even unnoticeable peeling, with little-to-no downtime, leaving your skin looking and feeling healthier. We suggest doing this peel at least 3 or 4 days prior to any special event, to ensure that any peeling has finished. You can continue with your normal activities immediately post treatment, only you will be doing so with incredibly glowing skin!
