Brrr... the cold temperatures of winter aren’t always kind to your skin. During the cold, windy and dry winter months, you may need to pay some extra-close attention to your skin care regimen and give your skin some additional love.
Using extra moisturizer and drinking plenty of water do help, but here’s also another skin treatment option to consider while the weather’s cold, chemical peels. Chemical peels not only address your winter skin issues/concerns, but they can get your skin ready for the summer months ahead.
That's right, scheduling your major chemical peel in winter is the best time to do it! You should schedule peels during the winter months because with many months before you will be spending a lot of time in the sun, your skin is more protected from the too much UV exposure while your skin is in the recovery and healing stage.
Choosing your level of chemical peel:
Light and medium peels can take a week or two of healing before your skin returns to normal. These peels typically cause some redness and irritation (remember though, everyone’s skin is different and will react differently to each type of peel) which you may not want to show off to others. The treatment can also improve your overall skin texture and tone, leaving you with a vibrant, refreshed appearance.
To best determine which type of chemical peel is right for you, we will do an evaluation with you to examine the overall health of your skin and discusses the issues that you want to tackle with the chemical peel.
If you’re looking for a quick way to improve your skin tone and texture, the light peel may be right for you

What to expect:
During a chemical peel your skin is cleansed and then treated with a solution known as an exfoliating agent. The solution is intended to destroy portions of the skin to which it is applied, encouraging the growth of new skin in its place over a period of time following the peel. After a predetermined period of time (different for each type of peel) the chemical that was applied for the peel is neutralized. The strength of the solution and length of time are dependent upon the type of peel, with medium and deep peels using stronger chemicals that are applied in multiple 15-minute increments during a 60 to 90 minute procedure.
