How long does a chemical peel usually take to heal?
You may experience some redness after undergoing a chemical peel, but it typically subsides within seven to 14 days. For more aggressive peels that affect deeper layers of the skin, you’ll likely be sore and swollen for months following your treatment.
How do chemical peels work?
Chemical peeling agents work to resurface the skin by inducing a controlled wound and thus removing superficial layers of the skin. As a result, chemical peels promote healthy top skin layer growth and improve common problems like hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven texture/skin impurities.
What should I expect during treatment?
First, your skin is prepped for the treatment, and the right chemical peel agent is applied. Most people feel a mild stinging, but this subsides after just a few minutes. The treatment can last for 3 – 5 minutes or 2-4 hours, depending on your needs!
How long do chemical peels usually last?
Chemical peels can last from one month to your entire life. The longevity of a chemical peel’s results depend on several factors, but the most significant factor is strength: light or superficial yields only between 1-2 months and deep produce better lasting effects with typically 6-12 weeks (or more).
