‘Tis The (Chemical) Season!
Yay for shorter days!
Winter is one of the best times to get your chemical peels done! Immediately after your peel, your skin is much more sensitive to UV damage. So, shorter days and less intense sunlight helps keep your skin protected. It can also be easier to stay indoors and let your skin recuperate during the winter months. You will be baby-faced and rejuvenated by the time spring arrives. In case it’s been a while, or you’ve never taken the plunge, here is why peeling is an essential skin care treatment:
Simply put, periodic peeling of the skin helps to stimulate cellular activity. It is used to treat everything from age spots and pigmentation disorders, to acne and enlarged pores. Peeling stimulating collagen and elastin, increases antioxidants, firms and hydrates your skin. Fine lines and wrinkles disappear, and your overall appearance is rejuvenated. With all the skin care treatments on the market today, chemical peels are still one of the best options to consider.
a simple process
Essentially, a chemical peel exfoliates the outer layer of damaged skin to reveal the newer layer that lies beneath. Normal healing and skin rejuvenation then occur as increased cell turnover occurs on the surface layer of your skin. Your skin tone will appear much more even and youthful. We then add enzymes and vitamins to nourish the newly revealed skin.
But what about the chemicals?
The most common peeling agents used in the spa setting are glycolic acid, salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and lactic adic. The type of agent will depend on your skin type, condition, and goals. Over the next few weeks we will take a closer look at each of these peeling agents so you have a better understanding of the process. Stay tuned!
