The days are getting longer and the weather is getting warmer, which can only mean one thing: Spring is almost here! As you prepare for this season of renewal, why not treat yourself to a chemical peel to rejuvenate your complexion? You may notice that your skin tends to become dry, dull and flaky during the winter. Facial peels can combat these unfortunate changes and get your skin feeling fresh and smooth for spring and summer.

“Peels are an ideal solution for dull, lifeless skin, hyperpigmentation, mild scarring and certain types of acne,” Dr. Vicky Dondos explained in a recent interview with TV3, an Irish news network.

Chemical peels remove outer layers of the skin that have been damaged by age, sun, acne, wrinkles or pigmentation problems. This prompts the body to generate a new layer of skin cells that are untainted by the previous skin conditions. The procedure is quick and relatively unexpensive, making it a popular choice among both women and men. While some people experience mild pain and discomfort associated with facial peels, the recovery time is typically quite fast.

“Other than looking a little flushed for an hour after a treatment your skin recovers quickly and although [it] may feel a little tight or dry for 48 hours, [it] does not affect your daily life,” said Dr. Dondos.

There are different types of facial peels, and your doctor can help you determine which one is right for you. At The Lett Center, we’re happy to answer any questions you may have about this procedure. Call us today to learn more!
