Professional strength chemical peels assist in removing dead layers of damaged skin cells, improving texture revealing a healthier, glowing, fresh skin. It’s great for all ages and all skin types and conditions. There are a large array of chemical peels solutions available today that can address different conditions of the skin and deliver beautiful results.
Chemical peels can be performed in the summer…with proper precautions of course! I would recommend a glycolic acid peel, or salicylic acid peel for the summer. These peels are lighter in concentration and there’s pretty much NO downtime. It will freshen up the skin and unclog pores without any physical peeling. The lighter peels have great anti-aging benefits, however the results are not as effective as a stronger chemical peel, which I suggest be performed during the seasons when the weather is cooler such as fall, winter or spring.
It would make no sense to perform a chemical peel on a patient that’s going to be severely exposed to the sun and not protected with sunscreen. So the best approach would be to get a Glycolic or Salicylic acid peel on a Monday or Tuesday – By the time the weekend approached the skin would be back to normal and not so sensitive to the sun. Regardless of what type of chemical peels you receive, SPF is a must to prevent photo-sensitivity or sun damage. Wouldn’t you hate for your skin to look like this?
