Chemical peels are one of the most popular skin rejuvenation treatments available, and it makes sense why. They are a minimally invasive, effective option to improving many common skin problems.
What Can I Expect from a Chemical Peel?
The experience of undergoing a chemical peel can vary widely because each peel has a different strength and different cosmetic goals. However, one thing that most chemical peels generally have in common is the eight-week cycle of skin renewal that patients must go through.
Within two days of treatment, patients typically notice that their skin has a luminous, healthy glow. After 3-7 days, the dead skin cells that were previously trapped beneath the surface are thoroughly exfoliated, and pores are unclogged.
Approximately one month later, the effects of collagen regeneration begin to become visible, revealing younger, tighter skin. It’s recommended that patients undergo an addition chemical peel every six weeks to maintain these improvements.
