Chemical Peel

Summer has come to an end, and you are beginning to trade weekends at the beach for barbecues in your backyard or cozy indoor staycations. Fall can also be a blessing for your skin as the sun is no longer shooting hot rays at you. It is the perfect time to start fixing the summer sun damage caused by UV radiation.

A very popular skin procedure to tackle everything at once is the chemical peel. Cell renewal happens at a much slower rate in adults compared to teenagers. Therefore, while younger people may follow the 28 days to renew their skin, adults can take up to 42 days. A chemical peel can help speed up that process, renewing the skin in only a few days with added benefits. 

What Is a Chemical Peel?

As the name suggests, chemical peels are procedures in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin for complete rejuvenation. The solution will trigger a reaction, causing the top layer to peel off and revealing the youthful skin underneath.

Chemical peels can be customized based on your needs. They can contain salicylic acid, glycolic acid, lactic acid, and more. Different depths of chemical peels may also be formulated, based on the extent of the skin damage. You can opt for light, medium, and deep chemical peels, all of which will target different skin concerns. A personalized consultation will determine which type of chemical peel treatment will be right for you. 

Reasons to Get a Chemical Peel Now

Below are some reasons why you should consider getting a chemical peel this fall:

  • Faster Recovery

After you get a chemical peel, it is important to stay out of direct sun exposure for about a week or two. This is because UV rays can irritate your already sensitive skin, ultimately slowing down your recovery. Even though there are still plenty of UV rays during fall, they are not as strong as they were during summer, making your recovery smoother.

  • Preparation for Festivities

Summer is a time for fun, but so is the fall season. From October through January, you will likely have plenty of festivities to attend, including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year. You’ll likely meet a lot of friends and family during this time, and a chemical peel will allow you to bring your best face forward to all the events you can’t wait to attend!

  • Summer Sun Healing

Summer can be fun, and that beach sunshine can give you a nice tan. That being said, it can also be fairly damaging to your skin. UV exposure can accelerate the aging process that can lead to wrinkles and skin elasticity loss. Sun exposure can also lead to hyperpigmentation and sun spots, along with other skin imperfections. By removing the top layer of your dermis, you’ll be able to remove most of the damage last summer dealt to you.

  • Improved Complexion

You may have noticed that during summer, your skin tends to have a rougher texture. This happens because increased sweating causes your pores to produce more sebum. Your pores also become larger as a result, making them more likely to become clogged and turn into acne. To reduce the appearance of your pores, you need better collagen production. Chemical peels will not only remove the top layers of your skin but also boost your collagen production, reducing the appearance of large pores and your unwanted acne breakouts.
