Are you ready to peel away the winter dryness? Reveal what is underneath your dry skin and restore your glow with a chemical peel. In the wintertime there is less moisture in the air which is a cause for dry skin, as well as the low temperatures and the cold winter wind. Rosacea and eczema can also flare up in the winter due to dry skin. A chemical peel can address these problems with exfoliation and hydration.
What is a chemical peel and how does it work? –A chemical peel is a procedure that accelerates skin turnover and speeds pigment reduction, resulting in healthier skin and a more uniform complexion. It is a quick way to remove dead skin cells, fine lines, small scars, freckles, dark spots and/or skin imperfections caused by aging and hormones. Because peels slough off those unwanted dead skin cells, and force brand new fresh skin to the surface, it gives you the appearance of tighter, brighter skin and smaller pores.
What are the benefits of a chemical peel? – A chemical peel reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin color, clarity and texture. It enhances skin glow and radiance by inducing production of new collagen and stimulating new healthy skin cell growth. Melasma, common in younger women, can be improved, along with discoloration and pigmentation. A chemical peel also addresses visible skin imperfections and scarring.
Why is winter a good time for chemical peels?- The weather is on your side with less sunlight, which means lower UV levels and a perfect environment to heal your skin more quickly. Winter is one of the best times of year to help correct a variety of skin concerns that you may have with a chemical peel. Have a peel now to exfoliate and refresh your skin or have a series to significantly improve your skin before next summer. The benefit from a series of 4 to 6 peels is that it targets the deeper layers of the epidermis for enhanced exfoliation and cellular turnover which produces healthy, glowing skin. Also, hyper pigmentation is better improved by a series of chemical peels. In order to allow your skin to heal between treatments, a series of peels are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.
