    Facial peeling: renew and rejuvenate your skin in autumn

    Facial peeling: renew and rejuvenate your skin in autumn

    During the summer, our skin is subjected to a wide variety of factors that contribute to its aging and wear: excess sun, sea salt and chlorine from swimming pools, environmental dryness and lack of skin hydration…

    For all this, if we want to keep our skin young and without imperfections, once the summer is over it is highly recommended to perform a treatment that helps us renew our skin and improve its appearance, which is why facial peeling is one of the most effective and demanded treatments during the fall.

    What is facial peeling?

    Peeling is a treatment that consists of exfoliating the most superficial layers of the skin, to favor that the skin cells of these layers are replaced by new ones, with which it is possible to rejuvenate the general appearance of our skin. In addition, through this cell regeneration, imperfections are also repaired, such as blemishes, small wrinkles… as well as unifying the skin tone.

    Facial peeling is the most frequent, because the face is one of the areas where the peeling is most commonly performed, although it is also common in other very visible areas, such as neck and hands.

    What benefits does facial peeling bring?

    Peeling is especially effective and is indicated for:

    • Rejuvenate the skin affected by photo-aging.
    • Unify the skin tone and remove stains, achieving a brighter skin.
    • Remove and/or reduce small wrinkles and expression lines, as well as other imperfections (scars, sequelae of acne …), getting a smoother and softer skin.

    The results vary according to the depth of the peeling: the superficial ones obtain results more progressively, while a medium or deeper peeling can eliminate spots and small wrinkles. The number of treatment sessions and their frequency will vary according to the type of peeling.

    The effects of facial peeling are long lasting, although recall sessions are recommended to maintain long-term results, especially in those cases where the goal is to reduce wrinkles.

    Advantages of recovery in autumn

    One of the main reasons why autumn (and also winter) is a good time for peeling treatments is due to the lower exposure to sunlight and the lower intensity of it during this time of year, as well as the fewer hours of daylight.

    This is because for a proper recovery after treatment it is necessary to protect the treated area from the sun until the skin has finished regenerating, avoiding direct exposure to the sun and using sunscreen when leaving home. This prevents hyperpigmentation from occurring.
