Chemical peels have become a highly popular aesthetic treatment for skin concerns. Whether you want to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, blemishes, or an uneven skin tone, a chemical peel can provide dramatic results without the need for surgery.
While you can get a chemical peel at any time of the year, we find that fall and winter are the most ideal times for this treatment. Here, we’ll discuss the benefits of scheduling your chemical peel late in these seasons, as well as what you can expect during and after your peel.
The Benefits of Fall and Winter For Chemical Peels
During the fall and winter seasons, outdoor summer activities tend to go into hibernation and people spend more time inside. Activities are more often held inside during the fall and winter, so you’ll likely be spending less time out in the sun.
Chemical peels make the skin much more vulnerable to damage from UV rays. To prevent severe sunburn and ensure excellent results after a peel, it’s important to avoid sun exposure as much as possible. Most people find this easier to do in the fall and winter than in the spring and summer.
Additionally, by getting your chemical peel done in the fall or winter, your skin will have plenty of time to heal before summer comes around. So, you’ll have gorgeous, glowing skin to show off when the time comes for pool parties, picnics, and all of your favorite outdoor activities.
What to Expect From a Chemical Peel
During a chemical peel, a mild chemical is applied to the surface of the skin. This chemical powerfully exfoliates the outer layer of the skin so that dead skin cells will flake away. As the dead skin cells peel away and new ones take their place in the days and weeks after the treatment, you’ll notice that your skin appears brighter and healthier!
