Chemical Peel in Guelph

Chemical peels are aesthetic treatments that address acne, congestion, oil, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, sun damage, and discolouration.

ZO Skin Health Chemical Peels

A chemical peel is a procedure administered by a skin health professional that provides strong exfoliation to the top layer of the skin to enable skin’s natural process of healing and restoration. Peels come in the form of an acid-based solution, consisting of ingredients like beta hydroxy acids and alpha hydroxy acids. The acid concentrations determine the peel’s strength and benefits.

Here at EM Clinic, we are happy to offer multiple ZO Skin Health Peels. The peels are available in varying strengths depending on the desired depth of skin penetration and desired results. Peels can be more superficial with minimal to no healing time, or they can be more corrective and require a longer recovery.


The best way to find the right peel for you is to discuss your skin health concerns and goals with your skin health professional. They can present options and make suggestions based on your skin and its unique needs, leading you to the best peel for you.

Precondition Your Skin

Your skin health professional may recommend that you precondition your skin prior to your chemical peel. Preconditioning promotes skin’s renewal process for enhanced recovery and it maximizes peel penetration for optimal results. A typical preconditioning regimen starts several weeks before your peel. Pre-conditioning also helps to minimize complications and enhance overall results.

Stimulator Peel AKA “Lunch Time Facial”

The Stimulator Peel uses a combination of three exfoliating ingredients- salicylic, lactic and citric acid to slough away dead skin cells and any superficial blemishes to reveal fresh, clearer skin underneath. It also stimulates cell turnover for continued improvement to the skin. This is a great peel for people new to peels or looking to see improvement in their skin without downtime.

Controlled Depth Peel

The ZO Controlled Depth Peel is the deepest peel EM Clinic offers, varying at 2 different strengths. This peel works as an ablative laser for the face except it is safe for all skin tones! The trichloracetic acid (TCA) contained in this peel allows our highly skilled provider to tailor the treatment to the patient’s individual concerns and needs. While this peel is safe and effective for all skin types, you MUST pre-condition the skin for a number of weeks prior to treatment. In addition to that, expect at least a week of downtime.
