Peel Season Has Arrived

As the seasons change, so should your skincare routine. Peel season, typically during the cooler months, is the perfect time to rejuvenate and refresh your skin.

Here's a guide to understanding what peel season is, what treatments are included, and where to start.

What is Peel Season?

Peel season refers to the optimal time of year to undergo chemical peels, usually in the fall and winter. The cooler weather reduces sun exposure, which can help minimise the risk of post-treatment complications like hyperpigmentation.

During this season, your skin can recover more effectively from the exfoliation process that peels involve.

What is Included in Peel Treatments?

Chemical peels use various acids and enzymes to exfoliate the top layers of the skin, promoting cell turnover and revealing fresher, smoother skin beneath. Peels can vary in strength and type, including:

  • Superficial Peels: Mild acids like alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) for gentle exfoliation.

  • Medium Peels: Stronger acids like trichloroacetic acid (TCA) for deeper exfoliation.

  • Deep Peels: Powerful agents like phenol for significant skin resurfacing.

Each type of peel addresses different skin concerns, from fine lines and wrinkles to acne scars and hyperpigmentation.

Benefits of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels offer a range of benefits, making them a popular choice for skin rejuvenation:

  • Improves Skin Texture: Peels smooth out rough patches and uneven skin tone.

  • Reduces Signs of Aging: By promoting collagen production, peels diminish fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Treats Acne and Scarring: Peels can help clear acne and reduce the appearance of acne scars.

  • Enhances Skin Radiance: By removing dead skin cells, peels leave the skin looking brighter and more youthful.

Where to Start?

If you’re new to chemical peels or looking to integrate them into your skincare routine, here’s how to begin:

  • Consult a Professional: Book a consultation with a licensed skincare professional who can assess your skin type and recommend the most suitable peel.

  • Start Slow: If you're a beginner, start with superficial peels to gauge your skin's reaction before progressing to stronger treatments.

  • Follow Aftercare Instructions: Post-peel care is crucial. Follow your aesthetician’s advice on moisturising, sun protection, and avoiding certain skincare products to ensure optimal results and recovery.

  • Consider a Series of Treatments: For the best results, a series of peels may be recommended. This allows your skin to gradually build resilience and achieve maximum benefits.

Embark on your peel season journey with confidence, knowing you're taking a significant step towards healthier, more radiant skin.
