Why Winter is the Perfect Time for a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are exfoliation treatments that remove the top layer of skin, allowing new, healthier skin to surface. They’re often used to treat conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin texture, and hyperpigmentation.

Why Is Winter The Best Time For Chemical Peels?

In the wintertime, you typically spend more time indoors. This gives you a chance to get plenty of rest and avoid damage done to the environment by the sun’s UV rays. While you’re resting up at home, your skin can renew itself and recover from the damage that can be done from things like sun damage or acne. This is the time when it is best for patients to get chemical peels. And there are also more reasons to choose this time of year for your treatment.

  • First, since you’ll be spending so much time indoors anyway, why not get the skincare treatment that can improve the appearance of your skin? With the recovery period of chemical peels lasting several days to a week, you won’t miss out on anything if you’re home during recovery.
  • Second, with the winter months being as dry as they are, now might be the best time to treat your dry skin that results from a lack of moisture in the air. A peel will remove that top layer of skin so that your body may produce new skin cells that have been nourished by the moisturizers you’ve been using. Then, when you step outside into the cold, dry air, you won’t have to worry about getting chapped lips and cracked skin on your face.
  • Finally, with a chemical peel, you can improve the look of your skin. If you have acne scars, sun spots, or blemishes from the summertime and you want to make them less noticeable for holiday festivities, you may want to consider getting a chemical peel. Doing so can help you be more confident in your skin so that you can have more fun during the holiday season. The holidays should be about having fun and enjoying the season with friends and family, not worrying about your skin and how it affects the way others see you. 

How Are Chemical Peels Performed?

A chemical solution is applied to the skin that removes the damaged outer layers of skin cells to reveal the healthy, radiant layers beneath. The process is safe and effective for most skin types. The type of solution used and the strength of the peel can vary depending on the type of results you want to achieve. Deeper peels usually involve a longer recovery time and can cause some irritation to your skin as they heal. However, these treatments offer more dramatic results that you cannot achieve with lighter solutions or at-home remedies.

Patients can benefit from regular chemical peels to exfoliate dead skin cells and eliminate signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. These treatments are especially popular during the cold winter months when many over-the-counter skin products are not as effective due to changes in the weather. Removing the dead layers of skin can also reduce the appearance of acne scars and improve the overall health of your skin. During your consultation, we’ll determine the number of treatments you will need based on your desired results. We can also discuss the use of special skincare products that can be used in conjunction with your chemical peel to maximize your results.
