As we reach that time of year where we tend to spend more time indoors, limiting our UV exposure, autumn and winter are perfect seasons to think about resurfacing the skin with a chemical peel. But what exactly are chemical peels, and what are their benefits?
What is a chemical peel, exactly?
A chemical peel is essentially a procedure that simply consists of provoking accelerated skin regeneration in a controlled manner through application of chemo-exfoliation agents, that are used to target different layers of the skin. This peeling action eliminates the external layers of the skin - the dead ones, with the objective of stimulating collagen and elastin production. Due to their exfoliating properties, peels evoke a “wound healing” reaction in the skin, which helps it naturally regenerate and restore, thickening the epidermis and increasing the dermal volume.
