How Long Do Chemical Peels Last?

Sun, weather, and many other factors can damage the surface layers of your skin, leaving it looking dull and rough. Chemical peels remove the outermost layers of skin cells, revealing bright, healthy ones beneath. These customizable treatments can restore youthful clarity and smoothness to your skin. 

What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical facial peels exfoliate your skin by breaking apart dull, lifeless layers. Your Manhattan Aesthetics provider will choose a chemical peel based on your goals and lifestyle. More intensive peels require more downtime, but you can expect results to last longer.

How Do Chemical Peels Work?

Chemical peels use acids to break up and remove the layers of dead, damaged surface skin. A light peel may remove the top layers of skin to brighten and clarify, while a deeper peel can remove more significant damage by peeling away more layers of skin. Chemical peels trigger cell renewal for more youthful-looking skin. They also stimulate collagen production to firm and smooth your skin over time. 

How Long Do Chemical Peels Last?

We offer a wide range of chemical peels to meet your skin’s needs. We also want to ensure that you can achieve your desired results in a way that works with your schedule. The lightest peels work well to improve surface issues and give you glowing skin. They require little to no downtime, and results can last several weeks. A medium peel may have results lasting several months. A deep peel will require some recovery time, but you will only have one. 

What Can Chemical Peels Treat?

Chemical peels can treat most skin concerns, from superficial dullness to deep layers of damage. As your skin heals after your peel, you will see brighter, smoother skin. Depending on the depth of the peel, you can see:

  • Clearer skin and tighter pores
  • Diminished lines and wrinkles
  • Less acne scarring
  • Decrease in sun damage and dark spots
  • Improvements in hyperpigmentation
  • Better skin texture and tone
  • Firmer and more resilient skin

Is There Any Downtime With Chemical Peels?

After a light chemical peel, you may have no downtime. Some people have minor redness or sensitivity lasting a few hours or days. You will look brighter and more refreshed almost immediately. After a medium peel, you may have some redness and peeling lasting a few days. While this will not limit your activities, you may wish to avoid social situations till it improves. After a deep peel, your skin will need two to three weeks to heal. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Chemical Peel?

Chemical peels are so customizable that almost anyone makes a good candidate. Even sensitive skin can benefit from a light facial peel. If you have skin concerns ranging from dullness to lines and wrinkles, a chemical peel may be right for you. You should not have a chemical peel if you have a skin infection or broken skin on your face.
