The start of the autumn season is the perfect opportunity to adjust your skincare and treatment routine, giving it some extra TLC after the long, hot, sunshine-filled summer. Practitioners and skin experts all agree that this is the best time of the year to book a chemical peel, and here are a few reasons why…
Refresh Your Complexion
As the skin naturally secretes more oil during the summer months and typically collects additional debris and dirt, it is normal for our skin to start looking a little duller than usual when the autumn season arrives. A chemical peel will remove all those dead skin cells to reveal a brighter and refreshed complexion that will give you that summer glow even when it’s cold outside. The ideal treatment would be a superficial peel like the Obagi blue peel Radiance
Restore Your Skin After a Summer of Sunshine
UV rays from the sun can cause a variety of skin issues, including increased pigmentation and uneven texture. A chemical peel will help to reset the skin, resulting in a more radiant complexion both in terms of tone and texture. Plus, as the weather is getting colder and the skin will naturally struggle to hold on to moisture, having a chemical peel at this time of the year will provide you with a refreshed base that will be better equipped to soak in and benefit from your autumn and winter skin care products which typically have a thicker formulation. At Dr Wafaa Clinic in Reading, you can have a Deep Skin analysis using one of the latest technology in the market, the Skin observ 520 x. You will be able to see yourself the type and depth of hyperpigmentation and get a bespoke treatment to restore your skin, whether via effective medical skin care or peeling.
Limiting sun exposure after a chemical peel is vital to securing the best possible outcomes and limiting both sensitivity and damage. As we tend to spend more time indoors as the seasons change, your skin will have plenty of time to recover in optimal conditions. Plus, getting in your chemical peel now will ensure that your skin is party-ready in time for the start of the festive season. (check our festive period offer here)
What Can I Expect from a Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels can provide a variety of benefits, including, as we have already explored, restoring a youthful, fresher and more radiant-looking complexion. Chemical peels also provide excellent results for oily and acne-prone skin, as they will help to reduce breakouts and minimise the appearance of acne scarring.
Chemical peels can be customised to suit your unique skin concerns and your skin type, and they also work well alongside a selection of other professional skincare products and aesthetic treatments.
If your skin would benefit from the radiance-boosting properties of a chemical peel, our Obagi Blue Peel Radiance treatment can enhance the complexion and provide firmer, smoother and brighter-looking skin even after just your first treatment. It is a superficial salicylic acid peel that is suitable for most skin types and is a fast in-clinic treatment with little to no downtime. We also have deeper skin peel, controlled done specifically by Dr Wafaa after years of training, to tackle deeper skin problems and reveal the best of your skin like the OBAGI TCA BLUE PEEL.
