Show Off Brighter Skin in 2019 with an Alumier Glow Peel
We all want to put our best face forward as we head into a brand new year. Alas, between the effects of unhealthy holiday indulgences and cold, dry air, few of us feel fresh-faced during midwinter. There is, however, a silver lining to the dark cloud of winter skin: Your post-holiday vacation is a great time to try an Alumier Glow Peel.
What is the Alumier Glow Peel?
The Alumier Glow Peel is a gentle, nourishing dermal peel that can be customized to suit different skin types and recovery preferences. The Alumier Glow Peel combines several organic acids (salicylic acid, lactic acid, and resorcinol) with soy amino acids and oligopeptides for thorough exfoliation—without the use of harsh chemicals. The Alumier Glow Peel effectively improves acne, hyperpigmentation, and the signs of aging, but it requires significantly less downtime than comparable treatments.
Dr. Grace personalizes every Glow Peel he performs by adjusting how many layers of solution are applied to the patient’s skin: Adding more layers will produce dramatic results quickly, but this approach may create mild redness that lasts for three to five days after treatment. Adding fewer layers will produce more subtle results, but any post-treatment inflammation will subside within a few hours.
How Does the Alumier Glow Peel Work?
Normally, the layers of tissue that make up the epidermis are constantly being shed and regrown; this process replaces damaged skin cells with new, healthy cells. In an ideal world, this system of renewal would always work effectively, clearing away blemishes before they have a chance to develop. Unfortunately, genetic factors, hormonal changes, and the aging process can all interfere with our skin’s ability to heal itself.
Hormonal shifts (during puberty and pregnancy, for example) can cause acne to form or unevenly darken the pigmentation of the skin, leading to melasma. As we get older, declining collagen production makes the skin weaker and more susceptible to developing lines and creases; the rate of cellular renewal also slows down, allowing signs of sun damage to accumulate. Cumulative UV damage, even from casual sun exposure, frequently produces age spots, diffuse fine lines, and create patches of rough, leathery-looking skin.
Dermal peels rejuvenate the skin by essentially “kick-starting” the skin’s natural renewal process. When the Alumier Glow Peel is applied to the skin, it gently dissolves the uppermost layer of the epidermis (don’t worry—this process is painless). As this layer breaks down, dead and damaged skin cells, excess oil, acne-causing bacteria, and hyperpigmented cells disintegrate. Over the week following treatment, a layer of fresh, unblemished skin forms, producing a beautifully healthy, radiant glow. Better still, because collagen is produced during healing, this new layer of skin looks and functions more like young skin: It’s stronger, brighter, and more voluminous.

Whether you’re looking for a powerful treatment that will melt away wrinkles or you simply want to shrink enlarged pores and freshen up your look, winter is the perfect time to consider having a dermal peel. It’s important to avoid sun exposure for a few weeks after having any form of skin rejuvenation therapy, so recovery from these treatments is much easier to manage in January than July. And, if you’re interested in having a deeper peel performed, you can use your vacation time to hide any lingering redness while you heal.
