Why Winter is the Best Time for a Cosmelan Peel

When we think of winter, most of us think of cold weather and snow. We also think of hot chocolate and sitting by the heater. But what about our skin? Winter is a great time to treat your skin with the best medical procedures available. 

Cosmelan peels are highly effective, clinical-grade skin treatments that remove skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation and melasma. Cosmelan peels are also known as chemical peels for dark spots because it treats all types of hyperpigmentation including sunspots, melasma, age spots, and acne scarring.

Melanin is responsible for the dark pigmentation seen on the skin. The body produces it as a response to UV exposure, but hormones, aging, and acne may also trigger it. By inhibiting a specific type of enzyme (tyrosinase) that is directly involved in the production of melanin, Cosmelan can reduce melanin production and the discolouration it causes in the skin.

If you’ve been considering booking in for the Cosmelan peel, now is the perfect time for a few reasons. The first is that there is less sun exposure in winter and a lower UV rating in the winter months. Any treatment that is used for sunspots and pigmentation makes your skin more sensitive to UV exposure and has a side effect similar to a sunburn. Another benefit of having treatment during the cooler months is the downtime. Winter is the time of year when people are more included to stay indoors. It is important post-treatment that the vulnerable new cells are protected to allow for healthier cells to grow.
