What is Recovery Like After a Chemical Peel?

After a chemical peel, the recovery is quite similar to a sunburn. You may notice that your skin is red or sensitive immediately after your treatment. A few days later, your skin will begin to peel and flake off. During this time, you will need to avoid excessive sun exposure and other activities that can damage the newly revealed skin. However, most patients are able to resume all normal activities within a day or two.

What Results Can I Expect from Chemical Peels?

You will notice results from your chemical peel after the skin heals, which typically takes just one to two weeks. You should notice a rejuvenated appearance in the skin improvements in skin tone and texture. For some cosmetic concerns, such as skin damage and wrinkles, you may need multiple treatments to achieve your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Mardirossian will help you determine the type of peel and number of treatments that will be best for you.
