Autumn is a season of renewal when New England is transformed into a landscape of gold, red and orange hues. As we prepare to settle into the stillness of the darker months, it is vital to consider the needs of our skin in this changing climate. Our skin has unique requirements during the various seasons, and it is essential to make seasonal updates to our skincare routines to maintain healthy, radiant skin. Chemical peel season is nw! These treatment’s offer a highly effective solution for addressing various skin issues and achieving younger-looking, glowing skin. Chemical peels can minimize the damage caused by the summer sun by removing the outermost layer of skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and promoting collagen production.
Here is why a Chemical Peel might be best for you
Reversing Sun Damage: The adverse effects of sun exposure are hard to avoid during summer. Even with the use of high-SPF sunscreen, sun damage is inevitable. It is worth noting that a suntan is, in fact, a form of sun damage. Chemical peels are effective in reducing the appearance of sun damage by eliminating the outermost layer of the skin, revealing a fresh layer of skin underneath. However, chemical peels can make the skin more sensitive to sun damage, which is why it is advisable to have them done after summer when there is less exposure to direct sunlight. The onset of the sweater season presents an ideal opportunity to book your next peel.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Chemical peels help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by removing the outer layer of skin, which tends to be older and more weathered. The fresh layer of skin revealed after a chemical peel contains more elastin and collagen, resulting in wrinkles and lines with less depth. A series of chemical peels can lead to a significant reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Collagen Production: Collagen is a crucial protein that provides structure to the skin. Unfortunately, the body’s ability to produce collagen decreases with age. Research shows that collagen production decreases by 1% each year after age 20. This reduction in collagen production results in less firm and saggy skin. However, chemical peels have been found to stimulate collagen production, leading to firmer skin over time. While some results may be visible immediately after a chemical peel, the most significant impacts will come after several treatments. Therefore, making chemical peels a routine maintenance practice every 4-6 weeks is essential.
Custom Treatments for all skin types: Chemical peels have varying strengths, making them suitable for people with different skin issues. Individuals with sensitive skin, acne, aging, dry, hyper-pigmented, and even oily skin can benefit from a properly-selected chemical peel. During a peel regimen, an esthetician will work with clients to determine their goals and concerns and recommend the appropriate peel.
Affordable: Chemical peels are an affordable alternative to some advanced skincare treatments. Starting chemical peel treatments in the fall means clients can see results before the holiday season. Routine chemical peels can lead to a renewed visage, allowing clients to dazzle at parties and family gatherings.
The seasons change – Just like your skin
If your skincare routine hasn’t changed this season, make seasonal updates, even if just minor tweaks. Your skin has very different needs during the cold and warm seasons. During the summer, you might be focused more on cooling, calming, and protecting against the sun. In the winter, however, moisture might be more of a priority, and fall is when the transition begins. As the harsh rays of the summer sun have winded down, fall can be an excellent time to speed up the cell turnover process with chemical peels.
