Believe it or not, now is the time to start thinking about getting your skin into shape for the holiday season. If you’re like us, you probably already have several holiday gatherings planned and you want to look your very best.
In our opinion, chemical peels are a great way to remove summer sun damage and leaving behind glowing, healthy skin. Not only are they effective, but they are also less expensive than laser or other types of ablative services.
While you are probably familiar with facial peels, we want to talk about peeling other parts of your body. It’s true! There are several areas besides the face that can benefit from a chemical peel.
Below are a few examples of our favorite not-so-usual ways to get ALL of your skin ready for the holidays:
Back: If you suffer from “bacne” one or two Jessner Peels will clear it right up! The ingredient, Resorcinol, unclogs pores eliminating blackheads and pimples. If it’s hyperpigmentation you are struggling with - you’ll need more than a single peel. A series of 4 - 6 will be best for you.
Chest/Decolletage: If you are suffering from hyperpigmentation or wrinkles in the chest area, a series of Jessner’s Peels is just what the doctor ordered. But hear us out - it MUST be a series of 4 - 6 over a period of about 6 weeks. One peel isn’t going to work!
Feet: Holiday soirees are the perfect time to pull out the strappy heels but sometimes, the condition of our feet may prevent that. A single Jessner’s peel will leave your feet as soft as a baby’s behind and takes less than 5 minutes! Just plan ahead - it takes a little longer for the peeling to begin and once it does start - your feet will look rough. Give yourself at least 2 weeks before your event.
Hands: If you are longing for younger-looking hands, a series of Jessner’s Peels will do the trick. Not only will these series help with wrinkles, but it will also help with sunspots. If you need a quick plumping - a Lactic Acid peel will draw water to the surface making your hands appear instantly younger.
We hope this helped you think outside the box when it comes to prepping your skin for the holidays! Ask your skin care professional if he/she performs any of these treatments and don't forget to request that the high-quality Theraderm peeling solutions be used.
