When the air is less humid and temperatures drop, our skins generally are a bit drier. It turns out that winter time is the best time for a skin peel!

Chemical peels are intended to remove damaged and dry skin, to reveal a smoother, younger looking version of yourself. They stimulate collagen production, and are the perfect beauty product to exfoliate and remove impurities without doing harm.

What’s the procedure?

An acid solution is applied to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin.  Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), or phenol solutions are applied to your face, neck or hands after a thorough cleansing.

The layer of skin that’s been exposed to environmental toxins and dry conditions is removed by the peeling procedure.

Your skin might be red for a day or so, where after it will move to scaling. It normally takes three to ten days for your skin to completely heal. During this time, it is imperative that you stay out of the sun, and avoid getting sunburnt. A glowing complex and smoother skin is the end result.

For chemical peels, it is best to do a series of light peels to achieve the look you want. Deep and medium peels will result in more blistering and crusting, and can take up to two weeks to peel. Medium and deep peels can only be repeated every six to twelve months.
