Winter skin is often dehydrated, even if your complexion is oily. This can lead to blocked pores and irritated skin. In our dry climate, exfoliation is just as important during the winter, as it is when you’ve been perspiring during the summer months.
Chemical peels treat a number of skin issues, rejuvenating and refreshing your face. A peel is a safe and effect procedure to:
• Restore your face to a more youthful look
• Improve skin’s texture and tone
• Reduce the appearance of aging
• Minimize age spots, sun spots, liver spots and freckles
• Lessen fine lines around your mouth and eyes
• Reduce signs of sun damage and hyperpigmentation
How does a Chemical Peel work?
Fresher and healthier looking skin appears as the top layers of skin are peeled away. Chemical peels can be applied in different strengths, which determines the amount of peeling and side effects you may experience.
One of the benefits of a mild chemical peel is that there is little or no downtime. Any redness or swelling should dissipate quickly.
What to expect with a Chemical Peel:
A series of treatment is often recommended for longer lasting results. You will need to avoid the sun afterwards (which you should be doing already), to avoid burning your fresh and sensitive skin. And as always, apply sunscreen daily.
