Why Winter Is The Best Time For a Chemical Peel Treatment

Once you have decided to proceed with a skin procedure, scheduling the treatment should be your next major consideration. The fall and winter are optimum times for anti-aging treatments such as a chemical peel for four key reasons.


1. There is Less Sun Exposure

A chemical peel causes a reaction similar to sunburn, leaving the skin very fragile and vulnerable to further damage. This can be exacerbated if you spend too much time in the sun. With less exposure to direct UV rays during winter, the healing process of the skin after a chemical peel is quicker, safer and much more effective.



2. Winter Weather is More Likely To Cause Dry Skin

During wintertime, the temperature drops and the winds pick up, resulting in dry skin for most people. Moving between heated homes and cars to the cool air outside further aggravates this. 

Chemical peels get rid of old, dead skin cells, speeding up the renewal process on the top layer of the skin. This makes your skin more receptive to moisturizing skin care products that work to protect and replenish it during the dry, winter months.


3. Winter Months Tend to Be Less Busy Than Summer Ones

Depending on the type of chemical peel you opt for, you may require several weeks to recover from your cosmetic procedure. Many people find it easier to take some time to recuperate indoors during the colder months, without the added pressure of summer vacations and other outdoor activities.


4. A Well-timed Winter Chemical Peel Can Counteract Summer Skin Damage

While there are many things to love about summer, those long hours in the sun can have a negative impact on your skin, resulting in:

  • Blocked pores
  • Dehydrated skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Deepening appearance of unwanted wrinkles and facial lines

A fall/winter-time chemical peel is an excellent way of removing any dirt, debris, oils and dead skin collected from the summertime, revealing healthy, more youthful and newer layers beneath.
