3 Benefits of Scheduling Your Chemical Peel in The Winter

The customized chemical peel treatments at our Kelowna clinic offer a great way to rejuvenate your skin and eliminate any unwanted wrinkles. If you want to experience the incredible benefits of this cosmetic procedure, here’s why winter might be the best time for it.

A chemical peel is a treatment which uses an acid solution to gently remove the damaged and dead outer layers of the skin. As one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance and texture of your skin, chemical peels offer a whole host of benefits to patients, including:

  • Dramatic improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines

  • Improved skin tone and texture

  • Promotion of collagen growth for naturally younger and healthier skin

  • Vibrant complexion

  • Cost-effective procedure

  • Reduction of skin imperfections such as age spots, freckles, or acne scars

Chemical Peels 101: What You Need to Know

When the temperatures become colder and there is less moisture in the air, your skin tends to become drier. This means that wintertime may be the perfect opportunity to have a chemical peel treatment, especially for patients who suffer from skin conditions such as eczema or rosacea.

Chemical Peels Can Keep Your Skin Glowing Throughout The Winter

Because chemical peels are designed to effectively remove the dry and damaged skin from your face, this treatment will ensure that you get to enjoy a younger, smoother, and more hydrated version of your skin throughout the colder months.

What Happens During a Chemical Peel?

When performed by a qualified skin specialist, a chemical peel is an extremely safe and effective way of rejuvenating your appearance. To help you feel more comfortable with the procedure, here’s what to expect from the treatment:

  • During a chemical peel, an acid solution (it differs depending on the type of chemical peel) is used to gently exfoliate and remove the damaged outer layers of your skin.

  • Most skin specialists use alpha hydroxy acids (AHA), trichloroacetic acid (TCA), or phenol solutions.

  • A chemical peel is an outpatient procedure and you can go home immediately after your treatment.

  • The person performing your peel will make sure to clean your skin thoroughly before applying the chemical solution to the treatment area.

  • The solution will create what is called ‘controlled wounds’, allowing new and more vibrant skin to emerge in its place.


What Happens After a Chemical Peel?

As with all cosmetic procedures, the recovery period following a chemical peel is very important to ensure safe and satisfactory results.

Here’s what you can expect while healing:

  • After a chemical peel, your skin will look sunburned and you may have to wear bandages around the treatment area to protect the skin.

  • Peeling starts with redness, and then moves to scaling. It can take up to 7 days for the scaling to go away.

  • Medium and deep peels tend to blister more and can take up to 14 days to peel completely. You should only repeat medium or deep chemical peels once a year.

  • Staying out of the sun is extremely important following your chemical peel. This is especially true for patients with sensitive skin, or those who are susceptible to scarring.


3 Reasons Why Winter is the Best Time For a Chemical Peel

If you have decided that a chemical peel is the right procedure for you, then the scheduling of your treatment will be your next big consideration.

The winter is often the best time for chemical peels for 3 reasons:

  1. There’s less sun exposure. Because the weather in winter is typically colder and gloomier, it gives you much more time to stay out of the sun and let your face heal for the required 7-10 days.

  2. Winter months are less busy than the summer months. It can take weeks to recover from a deep chemical peel, which is why the winter months are perfect for such a treatment. There will be no pressure of summer vacations or other outdoor activities.

  3. A winter chemical peel can counteract summer skin damage. While there are many things to love about summer, it can also have a negative impact on your skin. A wintertime chemical peel is an excellent way to remove any debris or dead skin collected during the summer, revealing healthier and more youthful layers of skin beneath.

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
