How Often Should You Get a Chemical Peel?

Have you ever wished for a facial treatment that could brighten, smooth, and clarify your skin with no recovery time? Chemical peels can treat facial concerns ranging from dullness to fine lines and acne scars. These versatile treatments provide effective skin rejuvenation for all skin types and tones. 

What is a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are skincare treatments applied to the skin and left on while they work. These peels exfoliate the dull, damaged outer layers of skin. Ingredients such as glycolic acid break apart the bonds between these dead skin cells, allowing them to peel away and reveal brighter skin underneath. They range from mild to deep and come in a range of formulas to meet your needs.

How Often Should You Get a Chemical Peel?

How often you get a chemical peel depends on the strength of the peel. You can have some peels every few weeks, while some are a one-time treatment. 

Mild Peel

These brightening, clarifying peels remove dull, dead skin cells. With regular use, they can control oil and acne breakouts, improve skin texture, and lighten hyperpigmentation. They are usually recommended for use every few weeks. 

Medium Peel

These peels treat deeper layers of skin to break up pigmentation issues, lines and wrinkles, and acne scarring. These powerful treatments are usually used every three to six months until your desired results have been achieved. 

Deep Peel

Deep peels are so intensive that they can be performed with anesthesia. They can treat significant skin issues such as wrinkles, scars, and precancerous growths. You will only have one deep peel. 

What Can Chemical Peels Treat?

Chemical peels can treat many skin concerns. Your skincare expert may recommend a chemical peel for issues including:

  • Sun damage
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Oily skin
  • Dullness
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven tone
  • Rough texture
  • Dry, flaky skin

We recommend scheduling a consultation to learn more about the types of peels we offer and which one will address your unique skin issues. 

What is Recovery Like After a Chemical Peel?

Downtime after a chemical peel depends on how many layers of skin the peel exfoliates. A mild peel often requires no downtime at all. You may have some minor redness for a short time after the procedure. A medium peel may cause a few days of redness and flaking, while a deep peel can take several weeks to recover from. We will discuss your treatment goals and determine which type of peel suits your lifestyle. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Chemical Peel?

We have a chemical peel for almost anyone. People with dry, sensitive, oily, acne, pigmented, aging skin all make good candidates. Unlike many laser treatments, chemical peels work safely on most skin tones. You should not have a chemical peel if you have broken skin or an infection.
