Winter Is Prime Time for a Chemical Peel

During the winter most parts of the country become cooler than normal, causing dry air that can lead to dry skin. In the wintertime, you might notice that you have more discoloration, dry skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.

At Elite Aesthetics & Wellness in Newport Beach, and Irvine CA, we can address your common winter skin concerns with the help of our chemical peel treatments. We want to help you maintain healthy skin all year long.

What You Should Know About Chemical Peels in Irvine

A chemical peel requires the use of a solution that resurfaces your skin. It removes the dry and damaged skin. Superficial wounds are added to your skin, which starts the body’s healing process. This also encourages collagen production in the area of the chemical peel.

Collagen plays a role in making your skin appear fresh and firm. During the process, the chemicals slough away the top layer of the skin. This allows for healthy, new skin to appear.

Why Winter is the Right Time

A chemical peel exposes the top layers of your skin. Your skin will be more sensitive to the heat, humidity, and UV rays after the treatment. In the winter, you can protect your skin by avoiding these external irritants. You can avoid skin irritants by protecting your healing skin under a winter hat or a scarf. It’s important to keep your skin protected as it heals.

What to Expect From a Chemical Peel

Chemical peels rejuvenate tired and dull skin. They encourage the younger skin to grow and minimize the look of cosmetic skin concerns. A chemical peel can address many anti-aging concerns, such as dark spots, dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, scars, and uneven skin tone.

Chemical Peel Procedure

A typical chemical peel lasts between 30 to 60 minutes. You can rest and go home after your treatment. Within three days, the peeling process will be completed. After one week, you’ll see a difference in the look and appearance of your skin.

Chemical Peel Recovery and Results

It is important to avoid skin products and other skin treatments after your treatment. A chemical peel relies on your body’s natural healing process. You’ll see results develop in several weeks. Your full results will emerge once your new skin develops underneath. After this time, you can unveil your new look to the world.

Chemical Peel Benefits

A chemical peel can give you the desired look that you wish for. It makes your skin look supple, smooth, and younger-looking. The great thing about a chemical peel is that you can receive it in the wintertime and combine it with other treatments.
