Fall marks the start of the aesthetic peel season

Published on Sep 26th, 2017 by Meredith Kiy

Woman having a chemical peelAs we are transitioning to cooler weather, it’s a good time to think “aesthetic chemical peel”. Fall and winter are optimal seasons to get a peel treatment as we tend to stay indoor more, lowering the level of UV exposure from the sun while our skin recovers. Getting into a yearly aesthetic peel routine is our aesthetician Meredith’s favorite way to achieve that no makeup glow. While the benefits of exfoliation speak for themselves, getting a professional grade exfoliation treatment, such as an aesthetic peel, is something you can feel and see immediately.

Fear aesthetic chemical peels no more

Many people get apprehensive to these two words, “chemical peel”, because they have seen pictures of peels gone wrong. First things first, know that aesthetic chemical peels discussed here are much more superficial and safe than medical chemical peels used to treat medical conditions. Second, try to stay off the internet researching photos because there are so many different acids aestheticians use depending on your concerns and skin needs.

At SkinCare Physicians, our aestheticians like to take a conservative approach, but do propose more aggressive peels for those wanting to crank it up a notch. In addition, they work with our physicians to give you the best results with little to no downtime.

What aesthetic chemical peels can do for you

We have a ton of skin cells, roughly 19 million skin cells in every inch of our body. While the body continuously replace old skin cells with new ones, the top 18 to 23 layers of our skin are made of dead cells. As we get older, our cell turnover starts to slow down and it can be harder for us to shed the buildup. This is why our skin doesn’t have the radiance we did in our glory twenties.

Using a gentle, at-home exfoliator is something we encourage our patients to use daily or a few times a week. But to go deeper, remove dead skin cell efficiently, and achieve a softer, more radiant skin, we recommend aesthetic chemical peels.

One of the most popular peels at SkinCare Aesthetic uses glycolic acid, a sugar derivative. It is safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin and Rosacea-prone skin. Meredith encourages her patients to get into a 4 to 6 week aesthetic peel cycle to help with multiple concerns. Whether you are working on teenage acne, adult acne, texture irregularities, or hyperpigmentation, start with an aesthetic glycolic acid peel and then work your way to more aggressive peels if needed. For those of you who have experienced aesthetic chemical peels before, we offer Jessner peels, a medium depth chemical peel that penetrates deeper into the skin for greater exfoliation and brightening.
