19 Dec Why Winter Is The Best Time For A Chemical Peel
During the winter months, we are subjected to drastic switches in temperature. The cold breezes and heated homes create a difficult environment for the skin, leading to dryness, dehydration and a buildup of dead cells. The result? Lifeless, lacklustre skin. Chemical Peels revitalise the complexion, restoring summer’s dewy glow and, with a range of superficial and medium options available, we have some great options for even the savviest of skincare-buffs. . For optimal results, winter can be the best time for a Chemical Peel, making now the perfect moment to schedule an appointment.
The Best Time For A Chemical Peel
The ideal time to book a Chemical Peel is between November and February. During these months, UV radiation is lower and our skin is much less likely to be damaged by the sun. Chemical Peels cause intentional damage to the epidermis by removing the outermost layers of the skin. This means that fresh new skin cells are vulnerable to the sun’s powerful rays and avoiding UV exposure following treatment is a must.
Booking a Chemical Peel is the easiest way to kickstart the festive season with a bright and healthy complexion! The Lovely Clinic provides a range of treatments that tackle a diverse range of skin concerns, including dull skin, acne and pigmentation. Now you know that winter is the best time for a Chemical Peel, all that’s left to do is decide which treatment is right for you!
Chemical Peels At The Lovely Clinic
The Glow Peel® by Alumier® contains salicyclic and lactic acid alongside antioxidant resourcinol allowing the light peeling of the skin to take place with the added benefit of additional antioxidants. After just one treatment the Glow Peel® begins to clear the complexion, revealing smoother, more radiant skin. Removing dead skin cells also reduces fine lines and wrinkles by encouraging the renewal of the skin barrier.
This is our perfect red carpet peel as it gives superb radiance with next to no downtime.
Medium Peels penetrate the dermis for more drastic skin rejuvenation. The Perfect Peel® by Medica Forte blends acids, vitamins and minerals to promote healthy, clearer and younger-looking skin in as little as one week. Salicylic acid deeply exfoliates the skin, while kojic acid stimulates collagen production, however, its novel ingredient, glutathione, sets the Perfect Peel® apart from others.
Glutathione fights oxidant damage and helps to reverse the signs of premature ageing. This ingredient also regulates melanin production, helping to lighten areas of pigmentation, creating a more balanced and even skin tone.
Perfect Peel® results truly are long-lasting. For most clients, we advise repeating the treatment every 6 to 12 months, although for specific skin complaints, monthly appointments may be required. As the winter months are the best time for a Chemical Peel, scheduling your first appointment before Christmas is advised.
