5 Reasons to Book a Chemical Peel This Winter

I highly recommend you book a Chemical Peel this winter!  They are the perfect service to help reverse your summer skincare sins.  They are also a great service for all things anti-aging.

What is a Chemical Peel?

Before I get into detail about why you should book a Chemical Peel this winter, let’s talk about exactly what a Chemical Peel is.  When it comes to a skincare service, I understand the words “chemical” and “peel” aren’t all that appealing.  In fact, I realize they probably sound a bit scary!

The truth is, when you get a Chemical Peel from a trained professional like me, you’ll quickly see that a “chemical peel” is just a name, and this is actually an amazing service that will reveal smoother, healthier skin while reversing the signs of aging.

A peel is a chemical solution that is applied to the skin that can be tailored to provide different levels of exfoliation.

How does a Chemical Peel work?

When you come to Luxe Skin Care for a Chemical Peel, I’ll do a thorough analysis of your skin and determine what level of peel you’d benefit from.  From there, you’ll get a full facial, followed by the peel being applied to your face.

The peel works to gently remove the top layers of the skin through an exfoliation process. Doing this helps promote the growth of new, healthy skin layers.  When your skin grows back, it is smoother, tighter, and has a more even tone.


If you’re a first-time you’re probably thinking “What?? I’m going to purposefully put something on my skin that will make it peel off?  Sounds awful and painful!”

The truth is the process is subtle and gradual.  The actual process of applying a Chemical Peel is generally pain-free although some people do experience warmth and tingling during the treatment.  Afterwards your skin may feel tight and appear red for a few days but most clients are back to normal 5 to 7 days post-peel.

5 Reasons to Book a Chemical Peel This Winter

  1. Chemical Peels are Perfect for Skin Rejuvenation
    If you are experiencing hyperpigmentation, or uneven skin tone, a Chemical Peel can help rejuvenate your skin and even out its imperfections.
  2. Chemical Peels Can Help With Anti-Aging Efforts
    A lot of clients come to me for anti-aging treatments.  If you are noticing fine lines and wrinkles, a Chemical Peel can help reduce the appearance of both.
  3. Chemical Peels Can Treat Acne
    If you’re struggling with acne, a Chemical Peel is a great tool to reset your skin and start down the path toward clear skin!
  4. You Need to Avoid the Sun After a Peel
    Winter is the perfect time to book a Chemical Peel because you need to avoid sun exposure after this service.  Since most of us are indoors more during the colder months, it makes it easier to adhere to my aftercare instructions.
  5. A Chemical Peel is the Perfect Way to Reset
    If you enjoyed the summer sun too much, a Chemical Peel can help you reset and improve your skin.  Winter can also be tough on the skin.  We’re exposed to artificial heat which can strip the skin of moisture.  A Chemical Peel can help exfoliate dead skin cells that have accumulated and reset your skin for spring.  Lastly, a Chemical Peel can also help improve how your skin absorbs the products you are using and improve the way your makeup looks by creating a smooth, clean canvas for application.

Now that I’ve explained why you need to book a chemical peel, let’s get you on the schedule!  Depending on the condition of your skin and your goals, you may need a series of treatments.  The best thing to do is schedule a consultation so I can create a treatment plan that helps you achieve makeup-optional skin.
