Did you know that fall is the perfect time of year for a chemical peel? If you’re not sure just what that is or why you should have one, read on for all that you need to know before scheduling your appointment.
What is a chemical peel?
A chemical peel is a method of extreme exfoliation. A chemical is painted onto the surface of the skin and left for a very short period of time before being rinsed away. This is usually followed by some serums that calm the skin, allow it to heal faster, and help the chemical peel tighten and firm your skin.
Why is fall a good time for a chemical peel?
Any upcoming special occasion, holiday, or event is a great time for a chemical peel. But why is fall special? This is the month that allows you to get your face looking its best before the holiday visitors begin to arrive or the holiday touring begins. A deep chemical peel can take a few days to peel and several more days before your skin once again looks flush and healthy.
What makes a chemical peel so special?
A lot of women are turned off by dermal fillers, Botox and similar products, or invasive or surgical methods of smoothing and tightening skin. They don’t want to put anything into their bodies that is not necessary. When this is the case, a chemical peel is the best solution. A chemical peel is completely safe for most people (barring potential allergic reactions), it is inexpensive, and its deep exfoliation helps give you some of the same results as other more invasive treatments.
