Peeling Season is Here!


As fall approaches, skincare professionals everywhere are prepping and getting ready for “peel season”. While peels can be performed year-round, peel season is when estheticians will promote a series of treatments to accelerate the results you desire in your skincare journey because of the weather during this time of year.

Why do we refer to chemical peeling as a season?

This type of treatment requires diligent care with sun exposure and heat, making it perfect for the fall and winter season. As the summer heat fades away, the damage from the sun does not disappear as quickly. Your esthetician may recommend a series of three or more treatments, depending on your targeted concern and desired results.

What is a professional chemical peel treatment?

It can be a variety of different acids depending on the peel and applied by a professional to achieve an acute wound reaction in the skin. As we age, our skin does not regenerate as efficiently; a chemical peel encourages cellular turnover, exposing new skin, and promotes healing. The Sorella Apothecary Chemical Peel Collection has a variety of peels that contain a blend of targeted acids to treat various concerns from hyperpigmentation, fine lines, acne and rosacea. We consider chemical peels a classic treatment to help target specific skin concerns.

Will my skin ACTUALLY peel?

Perhaps the most common question about chemical peel treatments is, will my skin peel or flake? There is a possibility peeling will happen as everyone is different, but it’s not required to achieve results. Think of peeling as a side effect of the treatment rather than the goal. How your skin tolerates chemical exfoliation depends on several factors, and your esthetician will help guide you on proper pre and post-care for your treatment. Remember, our skin regenerates every thirty to sixty days depending on age, so the results will take time to show on the surface, patience is key!
