Summer is winding down. After a season of pool parties, beach days, and camping trips, there’s a chance you may have spent more time in the sun than you realize. Even if you put on sunscreen every day, if you didn’t use enough or didn’t reapply every two hours, you may be heading into fall with some sun damage. The good news is that you have plenty of time to correct the damage from sun exposure before the holidays creep up.
Treating yourself to a chemical peel after summer is a great way to refresh your skin with minimal downtime, compared to some other rejuvenation procedures. Depending on which chemical peel you choose, you can address everything from dark spots to dull skin and freckles to fine lines. The best way to ensure that you’re getting the right chemical peel to improve your skin’s softness, luminosity, and youthful appearance is to discuss your options with a skin care professional.
Chemical peel season at Siti Med Spa
The truth is, chemical peels are beneficial in any season. But at Siti Med Spa, we particularly love them in the fall, because they’re perfect for refreshing skin after sun exposure. We offer a variety of chemical peels, and you can count on us to help you find the best one for correcting your particular skin concerns. Our offerings include:
1. Jessner’s Peel
Jessner’s Peel is a mild cosmetic peel that can be used on all skin types. Using a combination of resorcinol, salicylic acid, and lactic acid, it deeply penetrates the outer layer of skin to exfoliate and break up dead skin cells. Great for correcting sun damage, improving the appearance of wrinkles, and minimizing discoloration. Jessner’s Peel can also be used to treat acne.
2. Retin-A Peels
Retin-A Peels use tretinoin to exfoliate the skin and slow down oil production, making it a good option to treat both acne and photoaged skin. Retin-A peels help lighten dark spots, stimulate collagen production for improved skin texture, and minimize the appearance of wrinkles.
3. TCA Peels
TCA Peels contain trichloroacetic acid and are deeply penetrating. As such, they can address more significant acne scarring and pigmentation issues. They do take a little longer to heal from than some of the lighter peels, but they correct skin concerns on a deeper level and handle the surface issues as well. So if in addition to sun damage, you have some acne scars or darker pigmentation spots, the TCA may be a good choice.
4. Pumpkin Peels
Pumpkin Peels infuse the skin with vitamin A, beta-carotene, potassium, and zinc. The antioxidants and other ingredients help boost cell turnover, provide deep moisturizing and advanced exfoliation, all of which work to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, and sun damage.
Choosing the right peel is an important step toward luminous, youthful skin. But where you go for your peel and who you choose to perform the procedure are important too. At Siti Med Spa, beauty is what we do all day, every day. We take pride in our work, and so will you.
