Why November Is the Best Time for a Chemical Peel Treatment

With a professional treatment, a series of chemical peels can reduce or remove the appearances of blemishes like acne scars, wrinkles, or large pores while also evening pigmentation and tone as the skin is exfoliated. November is one of the best times to get a chemical peel since this is the time of year when skin can be best prepared for the cold months ahead.

Why November?

During the summer months and early autumn, you have likely spent quite some time enjoying the sunny weather. While warm and pleasing, sunlight can also damage your skin. The past several months have seen effects like blemishes, pigment spots, redness, wrinkles, or raised veins appear as a result of sun exposure. Additionally, the winter months are frequently dry and will lead to dehydrated skin. Moisturizing cream can only go so far in this case, because the dead cells on the outermost layer of your skin will block the full effects from being felt.

Starting a series of chemical peels in November is the solution to both of these problems. Not only will a peel remedy the unsightly aftereffects of summer sun, but it will exfoliate your skin and allow treatments like moisturizing cream to be fully absorbed for the dry winter ahead.

Simply Science

Chemical facial peels make use of glycolic acid, a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) known for its exfoliating properties. When applied, AHA accomplishes two important goals. The first is that it will loosen the ‘anchors’ that hold dead skin cells in place, allowing them to simply peel off. The second is that AHA binds water into the underlying skin. Not only is your face getting fresh, smooth skin exposed, but it’s being hydrated and infused with a healthy glow to boot.

Speedy and Safe

Some people feel a natural hesitancy at the idea of using chemicals to exfoliate their skin, but chemical peels are rooted in very normal processes. Your body is shedding dead skin cells every day, but in small amounts that aren’t normally noticeable. You are probably shedding some right now. What a chemical peel does is replicate this process on a more uniform scale, causing the same effects but in a way that allows you to feel and experience its effects to maximum potential.

It takes around 3-6 treatments to start noticing results, depending on your skin type and the conditions meant to be addressed. Each chemical peel takes roughly 30 minutes, which is why it is sometimes referred to as a “lunchtime peel”. Pop in on a few lunch breaks a month and you will get your younger, beautiful skin in no time.
