How Often Should I Get a Chemical Peel?
How often you should get a chemical peel depends on several factors, including:
- The intensity of the peel
- The type of skin concerns being treated
- The recommended recovery time between different types of peels
- Your skin’s unique response to treatment
- How often treatment is needed to maintain your results
Chemical peels are classified by how deeply they act on the skin. Superficial peels work on the outer layers of skin, while deep peels are more intensive and can require considerable recovery time. Many light, minimal-downtime peels can be repeated as often as once a month. Other peels may be recommended every few months. Some peels are so intensive that you will only have them once.
