Can I get a skin peel during summer?

Skin peels, also known as chemical peels, are one of the most popular aesthetic treatments, with patients loving how they renew the skin!

You may have heard that skin peels are just for winter, and might be wondering if you can get a chemical peel during the summer months – if so, the skin rejuvenation experts at Dermoperfection are here to help!

During summer, you should take more care after a peel due to sun exposure; you don’t need to completely avoid these treatments though – these are a few benefits of skin peels during the summer season:

Getting your glow

We all want glowing skin during summer, but if oiliness is instead getting in the way, a skin peel can help slow down oil production. This also treats acne and blemishes, perfect for your fresh-faced glow!

Fast results

You don’t have to wait ages to see incredible results from a skin peel – even after a few days, your skin will show significant improvement!

Helps with pigmentation concerns

Another common summer skin concern is hyperpigmentation, sun spots and other pigmentation issues, however skin peels are one of the most effective pigmentation removers!

Adds youthfulness to the skin

It’s not too late to turn back the hands of time! Particularly popular in advance of holidays and other special occasions, this treatment peels back the damaged layer of skin to unlock your youthful complexion underneath.

We are proud providers of the PCA Skin Perfecting Peel and NoPeel Peel, which are gentle peels suitable for a range of skin types and tones all year round – read about these here. And for pigmentation specific peels, try Mesoestetic’s Cosmelan or Dermamelan, which you can find out more about here.

Since your skin will be more sensitive following a peel, we recommend you wear an SPF daily afterwards regardless of the season – and here at Dermoperfection, we have a leading range of medical grade SPFs from skincare brands Obagi and PCA Skin. 

Our expert clinicians will advise on the best time for you to book a peel so you can safely enjoy the full effects before any events, along with more aftercare advice.

From summer to winter, we’re here to start your journey to stunning skin with our best skin peels – book a consultation today to find out more.

INTRAcel Pro RF Microneedling aftercare

INTRAcel Pro is the best radiofrequency microneedling treatment, exclusively available in Birmingham (and the West Midlands!) at Dermoperfection’s leading medical skin and cosmetic clinic – read about it here.

What should I expect following INTRAcel Pro? If you’re wondering about any aftercare advice following this RF microneedling treatment, the expert clinicians at Dermoperfection are here to help!

Since INTRAcel Pro is non-surgical and non-invasive, you can expect little downtime, but these pointers will help speed up the recovery process and give you optimal results…

Apply an ice pack to any swelling

It’s normal to experience mild swelling in the first 1-3 days after a RF microneedling treatment, so an ice pack applied in 15 minute sessions, 3-4 times a day can help ease any discomfort. Don’t apply ice directly to the treated area though!

Use hydrocortisone cream for redness

Redness is also common post-treatment, but this can be reduced with a hydrocortisone cream applied 3-4 times a day. 

Schedule for a night-in

You need to avoid make-up for the first 24 hours after your appointment, so you may prefer to book in when you don’t have plans after. Plus, don’t forget to moisturise afterwards too! We can recommend moisturisers and other products from our medical grade skincare range.

Be careful with sun exposure

Your skin will be more sensitive, so avoid using tanning beds and prolonged sun exposure for the first 2 weeks after treatment. We can advise on when’s best to book your INTRAcel Pro treatment before any holidays or events!

We suggest using SPF30 minimum on a daily basis anyway, but it’s especially important after RF Microneedling.

Drink plenty of water

This will help speed up the healing process even quicker (and is an essential for good skin health!)

These are our top aftercare recommendations for your INTRAcel Pro RF microneedling treatment, but we’ll run through this with you during your consultation – feel free to ask us any more questions during it too!

INTRAcel Pro is one of our most in-demand treatments; Rakhi said: I’ve had four sessions of INTRAcel Pro with Stuart and Rosi, and I couldn’t have been happier with their service and professionalism, I look forward to having more treatments with them.”

This is a buzzing term in the aesthetics industry right now – but what are polynucleotides? A natural skin rejuvenation injectable, polynucleotides boost collagen and elastin production for anti-ageing and hydration boosting effects. What makes it unique is that they are made up of bio-polymers derived from fragments of fish DNA, which closely resemble human DNA.

Read more about polynucleotides here.

P-R-P for hair loss

There’s many causes of hair loss, from stress to genetics, and we know this can knock your confidence. However, a natural, non-surgical solution is here to combat this hang-up!

P-R-P therapy involves drawing the patient’s blood, processing it then injecting it into the scalp, which triggers and maintains natural hair growth. Read more about P-R-P for hair loss here.

Body sculpting

Body confidence isn’t a new trend, but using non-surgical body sculpting and contouring treatments for this is definitely on the rise!

In fact, there’s been a surge in enquiries for treatments like our leading body sculpting treatment, EMSCULPT, which creates fat reduction and muscle building results equivalent to doing 20,000 sit-ups per session! Read more about body sculpting treatments here.
