It’s Peel season! Why you ask? It’s Winter and we are in the sun less and less and that makes chemical peel application safer with more successful outcomes. When you apply a chemical peel solution to your skin, it makes your skin more photosensitive and if you are out in the sun a lot like you are typically in warmer months, you could easily add extra damage to your skin. We are trying to erase the hands of time and aging comes mostly from sun damage. Does this mean stay indoors after a peel? Yes and no. To be on the safer side, apply sunblock daily regardless if you plan to be in the sun or not. You may decide to do some yard work, run errands or go for a walk and that time in the sun can be damaging to your skin with or without a peel so protect yourself to be on the safe side. Now, let’s discuss what peel is right for you…
When you book an appointment with me for a peel, I will assess your skin typing by looking at your skin under a maglight and woods lamp. We will also discuss your family history, health history, daily skincare routine and other factors necessary to determine the right peel for your skin type and your particular corrective desires. This will help me develop a treatment plan that’s best for you giving you superior results. If you decide to book a peel with me, you may purchase a single session or a package deal that buys you 5 peels plus get 1 free and includes a mini facial for free.
