How Often Should You Do Chemical Peels ?

Chemical peels create controlled wounds to enhance skin tone and texture, helping improve its tone and texture. Light peels may need to be performed monthly while medium peels may only need to be repeated once every four to six months; deep peels may only require treatment once annually.

As soon as your peel date approaches, schedule a consultation with our team and stop waxing or using depilatory hair removal products in the week leading up to it. Furthermore, it would be advisable to purchase some ice packs and over-the- counter pain relievers.

Hyperpigmentation and Chemical Peels

Light peels may help smooth uneven skin and minimize acne scars while treating dark spots and discolorations (including melasma).

Light chemical peels remove dead skin cells to reveal new, healthy cells beneath and leave behind less noticeable hyperpigmentation spots. However, after treatment it is crucial that a good moisturizer be used post treatment in order to protect the newly exposed layers from damage and prevent any return of pigmentation.

Prior to receiving a chemical peel, it’s recommended that one or two weeks be passed without using products with acids such as glycolic acid or salicylic acid, waxing or shaving and using broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30+ protection should all be discontinued.


Chemical peels involve controlled wounding to the skin, which gently exfoliates damaged outer layers while encouraging new, healthy tissue formation. They can help improve tone and texture, resolve acne scars and decrease fine lines and wrinkles while often being painless – although redness or scabbing may occur after treatment. It is recommended to follow doctor recommendations and use sunscreen during healing timeframes; your provider will likely schedule follow-up appointments shortly afterwards in order to monitor progress.

Preparing for a peel involves having your doctor clean the area and apply a numbing agent (or general anesthesia if it involves deeper peels). Prior to any facial peel, avoid waxing, epilating or using depilatory hair removal treatments; stop using facial scrubs and exfoliants; arrange for transportation home after your session (particularly if sedated); light (lunchtime) peels can be repeated weekly while medium and deep peels should only be performed every four or six months.

Fine lines

Chemical peels can help fade fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin texture, tone, and clarity. Chemical peels may also be used to treat sun damage such as freckles and age spots, uneven skin coloring, dry or rough skin patches called actinic

Your dermatologist will advise a treatment regimen tailored specifically for you that may include light chemical peels every month, medium peels every 3-6 months and deep peels once or twice annually. In cases of more serious facial lines and wrinkles

– for instance sagging skin, bulges or more severe lines and wrinkles – more complex surgical options such as carbon dioxide laser resurfacing, face lifts, brow lifts or eye lifts may be the better solution as well as soft tissue fillers.

Before going under the knife for a chemical peel treatment, be sure to discuss your complete medical history with your physician and avoid hair removal treatments, permanent makeup applications and facial masks in the week prior.


Chemical peels can help improve the look of melasma by evening out skin tone and dissolving dark spots, while simultaneously decreasing fine lines and sun damage. Unfortunately, however, they are considered cosmetic procedures and therefore rarely covered by insurance companies.

Chemical peels typically cause temporary redness similar to mild sunburn that typically lasts 3-7 days for superficial peels and 14 for medium/deep chemical peels. Some individuals with darker skintones may also experience darker or lighter

pigmentation after treatment, and vice versa.

Chemical peels are most effective when combined with other treatments like bleaching creams to maximize their effects on melasma. For instance, peels should be followed up with either tretinoin or hydroquinone to reduce post inflammatory hyperpigmentation and accelerate healing, and priming agents like glycolic acid can further boost efficacy of peels in melasma-prone skin.
