How long does it take to get a chemical peel?

Written by Dr. Chaw Su Kyi on January 18, 2011

How long does it take to get a chemical peel? I heard that you need several treatments.

There are a whole range of chemical peels that differ in both the depth of the peel, one or a course of treatments and with a range of products. We find that peels are best tailored to an individuals needs. Some patients would prefer only a single treatment and maximum results, this patient would be best suited to a deep peel, which will have more immediate effect although the redness in the initial period and peeling will be more pronounces. Then for some people who just want no downtime and straight back to work or social events, then a course of lighter treatments is best suited. These have progressively more effect while minimalizing downtime.
