SHOULD I GET A CHEMICAL PEEL IN THE SUMMER?

Chemical peels are a popular anti-aging treatment that can take years off of your appearance and restore that glowing, youthful skin. While many people flock to medical spas to get this treatment done in the winter, you may be wondering if a chemical peel is the right choice for the summertime.

While increased sun sensitivity could be a reason to avoid a chemical peel in the summer, there are many benefits to choosing the warm, sunny months for your next chemical peel.

Healthy, Glowing Skin

One of the main benefits of chemical peels is oil control, which makes it a great choice for those hot summer days. If you’re tired of having shiny, greasy skin rather than that gorgeous sun-kissed glow, a chemical peel is the way to go.

Fast Results

Unlike some other treatments, chemical peels provide fast results with very little downtime. Whether you’re planning a summer party or beach trip, or you’re getting an early start on that big fall wedding, a chemical peel gets your skin flawless after just a few days.

Less Makeup

No one wants to sweat under heavy foundation on those hot summer days. If you want to ditch the full-coverage foundation and show off your natural skin, a chemical peel is the best way to reduce pores, improve texture, correct acne and minimize fine lines, wrinkles and discoloration.

Fresh Start

If you’re still struggling with damage from last year’s sun exposure and the new spots or wrinkles that formed from this year, there’s no better way to get a clean slate and erase sun damage than with a chemical peel. Rather than waiting until winter, get your chemical peel now and head into fall with your most beautiful skin.

Better Planning

Once the holidays hit, it can be difficult even to schedule time to get a chemical peel, let alone wait a few days for the peeling process to take place. Summertime is much more flexible, so you can schedule your chemical peel at the most convenient time, to be sure you’re ready for your next event.

Precautions

While chemical peels are completely safe for the summer, it’s vital to use proper sun protection to reduce the risk of complications. Because a chemical peel removes the top layers of skin and reveals fresh, youthful skin, it can be especially sensitive and more prone to sunburn.

If you’re getting a chemical peel in the summer, be sure to use a powerful SPF at all times and avoid prolonged sun exposure. This is something you should do anyway to protect your skin, but it becomes more important with the increased sensitivity of a chemical peel.
