After chemical peels, most patients will begin to see results quickly and experience minimal discomfort. Each type of chemical peel will require a different amount of healing time and follow-up care to see maximum results. Light peels take 1-7 days to heal and require lotion application. Medium peels take 7-14 days to heal and require daily skin soaking, ointment application, mild lotion, and antiviral medication. Deep peels require 14-21 days to fully heal and require skin soaking 4-6 times per day, lotion, antiviral medication, thick moisturizer, and avoiding sun exposure for three to six months.
How Long Do Chemical Peels Last?
Chemical peels can provide temporary or even permanent results for patients. The longevity of a chemical peel will depend on the strength of the peel. The results of light peels can last for up to 2 months, medium peels can last up to 4 months, and deep peels can last for years, decades, or permanently. Light peels exfoliate the outer layer of skin and treat discoloration. Medium peels target the outer and middle layers of skin to remove damaged skin cells. Deep peels further remove damaged skin cells that medium peels target.
