When is the best time to get a chemical peel or any skin peel treatment? Red Lotus in Portland, Oregon recommends resuming peel treatments in fall to help peel away summer skin.
Fade Summer Dark Spots, Acne Scars and Fine Lines
Do you suffer from acne scars, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles? What about sun-damaged skin, irregular pigmentation, or freckles?
If so, you’re in luck, as the fall season is the best the time to consider a chemical peel, which can help fade away all these imperfections. Regenerated, revived skin looks less wrinkled and more toned than the old skin, helping you enjoy the winter holidays with a fresh, youthful glow.
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a treatment that improves the texture of the skin using a chemical solution. It’s also one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin.
Chemical peels work on wrinkles by stripping away the outer layers of skin, which stimulates the growth of new skin underneath. This process can lead to improved skin tone and smoothing out of defects like acne scars and wrinkles.
During the treatment, a skin-care professional applies a customized solution to the skin that causes it to “blister” and eventually peel off. The new, regenerated skin is smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Although most chemical peels are used on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on the neck, hands, back and elbows.
What Problems Can a Chemical Peel Treat?
A chemical peel is often used to treat fine lines under the eyes and around the mouth. Wrinkles caused by sun damage, aging and hereditary factors can often be reduced or even eliminated with this procedure, as can mild scarring and certain types of acne.
In addition, pigmentation of the skin in the form of sun spots, age spots, liver spots, freckles, splotching due to taking birth control pills (also called “melasma”), as well as skin that is dull in texture and color may be improved with chemical peeling.
