Peel season is finally among us. Now is the perfect time to start your skin’s recovery journey and get it back to it’s glowing self!

Over the summer our skin has been exposed to more UV rays that it’s typically used to during the year. This can lead to sun damage on our skin which in turn can increase the signs of aging and also increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles too.

In Autumn it’s the perfect time to start getting your chemical peels as there is less stress on your skin and the dark winter evenings give your skin more time to repair itself.


What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. Facial skin is mostly treated, and scarring can be improved. Chemical peels are intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin. To accomplish this task, the chosen peel solution induces a controlled injury to the skin.

Not only do chemical peels reveal a brighter, smoother and more refined complexion, they also improve the overall look and feel of the skin in just one treatment. Other benefits of receiving a chemical peel include: Improving the skin’s color, clarity, tone and texture.

There are many different types of chemical peels to choose from each suited to different skin types and each will help you reach your skin goals. Be sure to ask your skin care specialist on which is the best option for you.


What are the benefits of a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a technique used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck or hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is usually smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.

It is generally advised to get a chemical peel every four to six weeks. However, if you suffer from acne, there are some peels that you can do every two weeks until you find the expected results.

Chemical peels are effective for erasing signs of aging from your skin. This safe and successful cosmetic treatment can leave you with fewer lines and wrinkles, smoother, brighter skin and a more even complexion — all the requisites for looking younger.


When Should I Get One?

As we mentioned earlier, now is the best time to get your chemical peels done as our skin is under less stress than it would be during summer. In fact with everyone now working from home it makes for an even more convenient time to get a peel done as you don’t have to see anyone after you get it done.

There is no downtime after a chemical peel but there can be some redness and skin flaking which is all perfectly normal.
