Temperatures are dropping rapidly, and the sun is higher in the sky. Is this the time of year that you think of when you are considering a chemical peel? It should be! Here are a few of the reasons chemical peels are important in autumn and winter.
How a Chemical Peel Corrects Skin Blemishes
A chemical peel allows the body to shed the topmost layer of skin. When this occurs, signals are sent to the younger, fresher skin layers below. They multiply and move toward the surface. At the same time, the body triggers greater collagen production, which helps to tighten the skin and heal damage. Hyaluronic acid is also produced, which hydrates the skin and leaves it looking and feeling smoother and healthier. The result is you end up with younger looking skin.
Chemical Peels – Not Just for the Face
While we focus on the face here at NY Face Place, we also offer chemical peels for the hands and neck. These treatments can help to reduce fine lines and wrinkles that were caused over the summer due to sun damage. You can also see improvements when it comes to mild scars, age spots, some types of acne, and dark patches of melasma due to pregnancy or the use of birth control pills. You can even reduce the appearance of freckles with a chemical peel.
The Effects of a Good Chemical Peel
The result of a chemical peel is that you end up with skin that looks and feels new and improved. Remember that the topmost layer of skin is being shed and the body needs time to produce collagen and hyaluronic acid, so be sure to wear SPF 30 sunscreen for a few days after the treatment. While it is best to have a chemical peel when the sun is not at its peak, it will still be out, so be sure to protect the area where the peel was performed while the body produces the fresh new skin cells.
