While Summer is still here, the cooler Fall temperatures will be with us soon. Although there is much fun to enjoy during the warmer months when outdoor activities abound, Fall is the season to give our skin some rest from constantly being bombarded with UV rays and wind. Although the toll of our environment can be harsh to beautiful skin, there is an aesthetic treatment which can deliver a fresh, glowing skin presence. A chemical peel is a customized procedure that eliminates damaged skin cells and surface tissue to reveal radiant facial beauty.
Although we offer multiple skincare and cosmetic treatments to help our patients look and feel young, a chemical peel is best suited for the fall season. Here are the top three reasons why:
Avoiding the Sun is Easier
Because we spend more time in the sun during the summer, our skin is at higher risk to suffer harm. The potential skin damage individuals suffer during the warmer months may include dead skin cells and pigmentation issues like sunspots. Chemical peels exfoliate the damaged skin surface to replace it with a fresh, underlying skin layer. This process will require some time without sun exposure so your skin can heal.
Fall signals the end of summer and the start of preparing for shorter days and more time indoors. This period gives the chemical peel patient more opportunity to remain indoors and limit sun exposure, especially during its initial phase. Chemical peels come in varying strengths, which requires a more extended recovery period for the more intensive applications. In other words, the deeper the penetration and exfoliations, the longer you will need to stay out of the sun.
Preparing for the Holiday Season
Okay, we know the temperature is up, but it won’t be long before you start receiving or sending invitations to holiday events. With family get-togethers and office parties nearing as the weeks’ pass, you will want to look your best for this season. Or perhaps this is the time of year you plan vacations to get away for a while. A cruise or a trip to the ski-slopes will also require you to look beautiful and young.
By scheduling a chemical peel now, you will have ample time to recover in time for your winter activities, especially if you need more than one session.
Timing is Everything
Although excellent skincare is a year-round process, summer is the time when the sun does most of its harm to our skin. With the fall season following, it makes good sense to remove the damaged skin cells to allow the underlying tissue its turn to be in full display. By employing chemical peels in the Fall, you will counter the skin damage you have suffered in the preceding months.
Chemical Peel Benefits
When autumn is upon us, it’s the best time to get a peel. Here are the reasons a chemical peel makes sense to add to your skincare regimen this fall:
- Customizable to your specific skin type and skin care needs
- Eliminates damaged, dry skin that’s been exposed to sun and wind
- Reveals a youthful, radiant skin presence
- Combines well with other aesthetic treatments and products
- Reduces acne breakouts and scarring
Whatever your aesthetic concerns regarding damaged skin are, a chemical peel can address them by deep exfoliating to reveal a new, healthy layer. Consult with a facial plastic surgeon to learn more about chemical peels.
