What is a chemical peel?
Chemical peel facials are a treatment in which a chemical solution is applied to your face to remove the top layer. The skin then grows back smoother.
Chemical peels are used to treat wrinkles, discolored skin and scars which are usually found on the face. Chemical peels can be done alone as a facial in itself or combined with other cosmetic procedures. Chemical peels offer a more dramatic result but can also take a bit longer to recover from than other facial treatments.

How long does chemical peel last?
You may have tried a prescription cream for your acne or wrinkles and found they do nothing to help. If you are sick of the over-the-counter products doing nothing but causing you frustration and spending money, chemical peels might be for you.
The results from chemical peels differ from each client however most results from chemical peels can last anywhere from one month to the rest of your life. The longevity of a chemical peel treatment results depends on several factors, but the most significant factor is the strength of the peel the aesthetician uses.
A light, or superficial peel can produce results that last between one to two months. A medium peel can produce results that last between two and six months and the results of a deep chemical peel can last forever.
The aesthetician will go over which chemical peel level will be right for you and your skin during your consultation appointment with them.
How long does it take to see results from a chemical peel?
A few things to expect after a chemical peel treatment:
- Side effects are common, but they are mild and short-lived
Each client will react differently to a chemical peel treatment, for the most part the side effects should be mild and heal completely within 2 weeks.
- Your skin will peel
The chemical agent that was applied to your skin will start to peel away the top layer of skin, usually around the three-to-five-day mark after the treatment.
- One treatment is good, but multiple yield maximum results
Not everyone will achieve the results they want after one treatment; it usually can take several treatment sessions to see the maximum results you want.
- Skip makeup for a bit after the treatment
For the first week or two, do not wear makeup. Let your skin run through the peeling process to get the most out of our chemical peel treatment.
- Adjust your skincare routine after
Talk to our doctors after the chemical peel treatments to see what skincare routine you may need to change to benefit your results.
- Always apply sunscreen
Sunscreen is a must every day as it protects your skin from harmful UV rays. After a chemical peel treatment, your skin is more sensitive to damage than it was previously.
- Avoid high temperatures and overexertion
To fight potential side effects like redness, tingling and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, keep your skin cool.
- You may break out with a bit of acne
The combination of larger amount of dead skin and inflammation from the treatment can lead to acne, however it won’t last long and your results should be incredible after.
- Be patient – results take time
Chemical peel treatments do not provide overnight results, it takes time for your skin to accumulate.
