We don’t know about you all, but we’re over the cold and are ready to trade snow and freezing temps for warm, sunny summer days. But while the dreary weather is certainly not ideal, it is great for one thing: chemical peels! Before we say “toodles” to winter, read on to find out why this is the perfect time to get a chemical peel and make an appointment with us—your summer self will thank you!
Why is Winter the Best Time to Get a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are designed to get rid of dry, damaged skin and reveal smoother, more hydrated skin underneath. Rather than just penetrating the outmost layer of skin—as most exfoliants do—chemical peels expose deep layers, which means that after treatment your skin will be more sensitive to heat and UV rays (aka, the sun!). By getting the treatment during the winter months, your skin will be much more protected during the healing stage (because there are fewer harmful rays your skin is exposed to).
Depending on what level peel your esthetician recommends for your skin care needs, your skin can take anywhere from a week or two up to a month to fully heal. After treatment, your face will most likely be red and irritated and, since it’s not like you’re going out much in 20-degree weather (brr!), winter is the perfect time to allow your skin to recover.
Benefits of a Chemical Peel
It sounds scary, but your face is actually full of dead skin cells, and one of the best ways to reveal the healthy new skin underneath is to get a chemical peel. Peels also address issues like sun spots, age spots, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles—things that accumulate over time and can be tricky to get rid of with just general skincare products. Your skin’s overall texture and tone will improve as well.
Overall, after a chemical peel, you’ll be left with vibrant, younger-looking skin—it’s practically a fresh new face!—that will leave you feeling satisfied and confident. Hello summer, here you come!
