What is a Facial Peel?

Facial Peels exfoliate the skin and encourage cellular turnover in order to revitalize your skin. They are designed from a medical perspective to provide proven results.
A peel can help improve a ruddy or oily complexion and calms and soothes sensitive skin. They will repair and rejuvenate your skin, and can even help to manage breakouts. Peels are best used in conjunction with lasers, fillers, and a good skin care line. They cause little to no discomfort, and there is minimal recovery time. Results and recovery will depend on the type of peel selected; Dr. Horton will help you choose the best peel for you during your consultation with him.

Dr. Horton provides the following facial peels at Metrotown Surgical Centre:

Enhanced Jesners Peel

Good for all skin types, targeting acne and oily skin.

Sensi Peel

Good for all skin types and safe for sensitive skin. This is an aggressive treatment, so you may experience visible exfoliation for a few days post-peel.

iS Fire and Ice Peel

Hollywood's "Red Carpet" facial. It is actually two treatments in one using serums and creams with aromas of warm cinnamon and cool peppermint. This facial lightly resurfaces the skin, reducing the look of fine lines. It also provides clensing of blocked pores.


This can be added on top of one of our other peels. It is a customized treatment for your skin to meet your specific needs. Some boosters we can offer include the Ultra Peel, Esthetique, and Vitamin Boost.
