In Colorado Springs, we enjoy over 300 days of sun every year. With the beautiful weather our community absorbs, it can be difficult to remember to protect yourself from the sun. Unfortunately as much as 90% of your skin’s damage comes from sunlight. Fortunately, there are effective ways to manage this and still enjoy the great outdoors.
At PureLee Redefined, we offer safe and effective chemical peels customized to your specific skin care needs, which mitigate the damage caused by the sun. A common myth is that Chemical Peels are not safe to do in the summer. It is true that you’re more sensitive to sunlight after a chemical peel, but with a few modifications and precautions, you can enjoy the benefits of peels all year round.
Call on the chemical peel professionals at PureLee Redefined in Colorado Springs to ensure a safe and effective skin care routine that includes summertime chemical peels. It’s proactive care that benefits virtually everyone. Here’s what you need to keep in mind to clear away summer damage with a chemical peel.
What does the sun do to your skin?
Sunlight helps your body convert vitamin D to its active form. Sunlight is known to improve your mood and regulate your circadian rhythm.
The ultraviolet (UV) components of light are what cause damage to your skin. These UV rays cause your skin to age at an accelerated rate by reducing the skins elasticity and creating excess pigmentation that are commonly referred to as sunspots.
The restorative value of chemical peels
Chemical peels can augment your body’s own repair mechanisms. Your skin’s typical cell renewal rate is about every 28-90 days, depending on your age. By getting chemical peels, we are able to increase your skins exfoliation rate, quickening your skins ability to heal and renew itself. These services often stimulate collagen and hyaluronic acid production in your body, two skin components that add volume and moisture.
Customized skin care matched to you
At PureLee Redefined, we offer a variety of Chemical Peels which are safe to use in all skin types and customized to your specific skincare needs. An in depth consultation with our Licensed Aesthetician and Medical Providers will determine the best option for you.
Protecting yourself after a summertime peel
Your skin is more vulnerable to UV rays after a chemical peel, so it is very important to consistently use a well formulated, broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Re-apply sunscreen after your peel every 2-3 hours if outside, and wear a hat!
