Chemical Peels: The Winter Benefits
Winter can be a stressful time for numerous reasons, from working overtime to being in charge of cooking on the big day and hunting for those last-minute presents!
With all of your attention focussed on the festivities, this leaves you vulnerable to falling into the age-old trap of letting your skincare regime lapse, something which is especially important to avoid seeing as the season’s bitter cold and harsh weather conditions can have a negative impact on your skin.
To ensure you’re feeling as happy as can be and as confident as ever, we recommend that not only do you pay some extra attention to your skin this November, but that you also treat yourself to a little bit of winter TLC. This can be achieved by taking advantage of our invigorating selection of chemical peels, all of which are guaranteed to have you looking radiant throughout the winter and well into those first few warmer months.
What is a Chemical Peel?
If you find that your skin is constantly plagued with problems, from dryness and irritation to pigmentation and blackheads, then chemical peels are likely to be a much-needed companion on your skincare regime journey. They are a non-invasive treatment that uses a bespoke mixture of chemicals to penetrate the epidermis (the top layer of the skin) reaching deeper points than traditional skincare treatments and targeting any skin concerns that you may have. Chemical peels stimulate your skin into growth, cleansing you of any old, dead skin cells and replacing these with newer, healthier ones.
Chemical peels usually come in three levels: light, medium and deep. Each peel has its different benefits and uses.
- The light peel is a quick way to improve your skin’s tone and texture, targeting any light fine lines or wrinkles. Light peels are suitable for monthly treatments.
- The medium peel is useful for treating deep-set wrinkles or acne scars. This peel utilises trichloroacetic acid to remove further layers of skin, revealing the healthier skin underneath. Most medium peels are suitable to receive two to three times a year.
- Deep peels are extremely effective and the strongest type of peel. They can help combat many severe skin conditions and are often delivered with the help of an anaesthetic. Most experts would recommend that you only undergo one of these treatments in your lifetime to prevent health complications arising.
Regardless of your choice of peel, this treatment is quickly becoming the go-to treatment for celebrities and influencers who are looking to maintain perfect skin throughout the colder months.

Here at North West Aesthetics, we choose to use a range of industry-leading chemical peels as they offer our patients unparalleled results. These products are used extensively by skincare experts around the world and are a great option for those looking for brighter, tighter and younger-looking skin.

The Perfect Peel: The Perfect Peel sits in between the Obagi Radiance Peel and the Obagi Blue Peel, making it the perfect solution for those who desire something a bit stronger than a light peel, but not wanting the downtime associated with a stronger treatment. The Perfect Peel is suitable for all skin types and can help you tackle a wide range of skin concerns, from fine lines and wrinkles to pigmentation and even inflammation. This treatment is great for reducing the visible signs of ageing and can help you achieve a more youthful complexion.
Obagi Blue Peel: Our deepest peel for those looking for a way to treat skin concerns such as sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation and age spots. The Obagi Blue Peel utilises trichloroacetic acid to offer a deeply nourishing experience that will leave you with skin that looks clearer and rejuvenated.
Winter is the Weather for Peels
We bet you didn’t know that winter is actually one of the best times to start a new skincare regime. During the winter months, your skin is constantly in battle with harsh weather conditions, cold winds and is likely suffering from a lack of vitamin C. All of these things can make it more prone to flare-ups of rosacea or eczema, and will also contribute to a more tired look.
By having a chemical peel in the winter, you will be providing yourself with a much-appreciated foundation for your skincare regime throughout the winter months. Chemical peels are proven to improve the performance of your usual skincare products, for the treatment helps remove any dead skin cells and deals with any clogged pores that usually impede the effects of the items on your skincare shelf.
During the winter months, there is also less need to worry about excess sun exposure which can be beneficial for your skin, as you are probably well aware! Not only is there less sun, but UV levels are also lower, meaning that the risk of sun damage is decreased. This provides you with the perfect opportunity to treat conditions such as hyperpigmentation or premature ageing.
