How Often Should I Get A Chemical Peel?

By April 3, 2023 No Comments
Chemical peels are a professional exfoliation treatment that uses specific acidic substances to strip dead and damaged skin away. It does this by causing peeling over the course of a few days. They are a great all-around skin treatment and some have anti-aging properties as well. Patients often ask, “How often should I get a chemical peel?” In general, master estheticians recommend waiting at least four to six weeks between chemical peels. This allows the skin to recover and fully heal before creating controlled damage again. Even for light peels, it is best not to have them too often to prevent added irritation or damage. Some patients may also choose to alternate chemical peels with another procedure such as microneedling. In this case, patients will only undergo a chemical peel roughly every eight to twelve weeks. Ultimately, the duration of time between chemical peels depends on the patient’s skin and their goals. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 206-775-3561.
