Can Chemical Peels be Done During Summer?

Can chemical peels be done in the summer? Well, it's a good question.A chemical peel is a non-surgical procedure in which one or more chemical solutions are applied to small areas of your face and neck. It sounds intense, but reports can exaggerate the process. Many different types of acids can be used in chemical peel procedures (glycolic, mandelic, salicylic, phenolic and trichloroacetic acid). Chemical peel strength can be light, medium, or deep. Light peels are used to treat uneven pigmentation, acne, dry skin, or fine wrinkles. Medium peels are used to treat acne scar, deeper wrinkles, and uneven skin color. Deep peels are used to treat deeper wrinkles, sun-damaged skin, scars, blotchy areas, and even pre-cancerous growths. The strength of the peel will dictate the kind of solutions used in the procedure and the amount of time needed to recover.

For summer time, light fruit acid peels are probably the best choice. The best “go to” solution is glycolic acid. Glycolic peels are are very light AHA peels, so you won’t physically peel from them which means they require much less recovery time. Depending on the sensitivity of your skin, it may be mildly irritated after the peel, it may feel dry and can flake, however light glycolic peels tend to require little to no recovery time. Depending on the desired result, you may find that more than one treatment is necessary. Glycolic peel can be repeated once every 7 to 10 days.

What issues does a glycolic peel fix? Glycolic peels can be effective at reducing blotchy patches of skin. The peel is attracted to the darker pigment, and lifts and/or reduces the appearance of these blotchy areas. Peels can also help manage acne by shedding impurities and excess oil. Sun spots and freckles can also be reduced in appearance through glycolic peels. Glycolic acid is also an exfoliator which means safely removes the outer layer of dead skin cells on your skin, bringing fresh, new skin to the surface of your skin.

Because glycolic acid is a natural substance, its use is not associated with any major side effect. However, application in higher concentration may pose some risks. Also, make sure you apply moisturizer and sunscreen lotion generously after using it. If used properly with adequate care and precaution, it can provide satisfactory solutions to problems like oily skin, acne and acne scars, dry skin, acne-prone skin, and most importantly, for anti-aging.
