Frequently Asked Questions
How Long do Results From a Chemical Peel Treatment Last?
The benefits of chemical peels vary in duration. Results from superficial treatments, or “lunchtime peels,” last one to two months while deeper treatments may last upwards of a year.
When Will I See Results From a Chemical Peel?
Results from chemical peels are visible immediately or within a few days of treatment, and little to no downtime is required, though we recommend multiple treatments to achieve optimal results. Results from medium and deep chemical peels may take slightly longer to appear, due to the healing process.
Are There Any Potential side Effects?
Side effects from chemical peels depend on the strength of the peel. Superficial peels typically pose minimal side effects and patients can immediately resume their daily activities, although some redness may appear following treatment. Deeper chemical peel treatments may cause redness, dryness, irritation, hypersensitivity, and swelling, though these effects will dissipate on their own after a short recovery period. We recommend all chemical peel patients be extremely cautious under direct sunlight to reduce the severity of side effects.
