Why we love Chemical Peels

Medical-grade peels work to improve the health of your skin through exfoliation, cellular stimulation and a calming post-treatment masque that is beneficial for any skin type.
Chemical Peels can be customized to a number of different skin types, skin conditions and concerns. Those who are interested in a Chemical Peel are looking for results such as:

  • Clearer and brighter complexion
  • Even skin tone and texture
  • Repairing and removing sun damage
  • Reduced pigmentation
  • Refined pore size
  • Smooth, glowing skin

Am I a Candidate? 

The beauty of a Chemical Peel is that they are highly customizable to any skin type or condition, so everyone can benefit from a peel. Chemical Peels are designed to target and treat:

  • Acne
  • Melasma & hyperpigmentation
  • Discolouration
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines
  • Rough skin texture
  • Large pores
  • Skin dullness

The results of Medical-Grade Chemical Peels vary depending on your personalized treatment, but each patient can be confident that they will enjoy a softer, smoother and glowing appearance of the skin post-treatment.


How is it performed? 

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.

How Chemical Peels work

We offer 5 different types of Chemical Peels at 8 West, all of which are customizable to best suit your skin types, concerns and conditions. 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.


What to Expect

Once you have completed your treatment, your skin may be a little red, depending on the intensity of the peel. Our medical grade Chemical peels have little-to-no downtime, and will leave your skin looking and feeling healthier. You can expect mild or even unnoticeable peeling in the days that follow.
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!
