How often should I get chemical peels?

Are you looking for a quick refresher for your skin? A chemical peel can give you the refreshed, dewy skin you desire because it gets rid of the outer layer of dead, dry skin cells that make the skin look dull and lackluster. But how often should you get a chemical peel?

Benefits Of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels improve the overall appearance of the skin by enhancing skin tone, texture, and clarity. They can be used to remove pigmentation, reduce scarring and discoloration, clear breakouts, even skin tone, and minimize wrinkles. The skin looks clearer, brighter, and more youthful after a chemical peel.

Types Of Chemical Peels

There are different types of chemical peels that vary in strength – light, medium, and deep. The type of peel required will depend on the patient’s skin type, and the skin condition being treated.

How Often Should I Get Chemical Peels

Light peels are gentle and can be repeated every 4-5 weeks, medium peels can be done every 3-9 months. Deep peels are very intensive and are only performed once.

Your doctor will let you know how often you can safely get a chemical peel to maintain your desired results. Also, if you are treating a specific skin condition you may need to have a chemical peel done frequently.

If you are considering a chemical peel, you should consult with an experienced dermatologist. The dermatologist will evaluate your skin and recommend a course of treatment based on your skin type, and the results you want to achieve.
