How long will my chemical peel results last?
Because of the persistence of skin pinkness following deeper chemical peel procedures, it may take months before you can fully appreciate your new look. Most patients feel that the results are worth waiting for and, in the case of deeper treatments, the benefits are relatively long-lasting.
Your skin will continue to age, and wrinkles will eventually reappear. Some wrinkles may recur sooner than others, depending on their location and the type and extent of your chemical peel treatment. You may need to repeat light to medium chemical peels periodically to maintain your results.
While results are individual to each patient, chemical peel before and after photos can help you assess what a successful chemical peel will look like.
What do I need to consider after my chemical peel?
To achieve the most beautiful and safe outcome, it’s important you return to your aesthetic plastic surgeon's office for follow-up evaluations at prescribed times and whenever you notice any changes. If you notice changes over time, you can schedule additional chemical peel treatments to maintain your results. Do not hesitate to contact your surgeon when you have any questions or concerns.
