How Long Do Chemical Peels Last?

Chemical peels can provide a dramatic improvement to the tone, texture, and overall appearance of your skin. This treatment can enhance the results of other anti-aging solutions or be used alone to reduce the appearance of imperfections, such as fine lines, discoloration, and minor scarring. 

One of the most common questions that patients ask about chemical peels is how long they’ll last. Here, we’ll address this question and provide an overview of chemical peels that brighten and rejuvenate your skin. 

How Do Chemical Peels Work?

During a chemical peel, your aesthetician will first apply an acid solution to the skin. The peel will then get to work, causing the skin to shed its outermost layer. This process will take place in the 4 to 7 days following the peel. Your skin will produce new, healthy skin cells to replace the layer of skin that’s shed, which results in a brighter, healthier complexion. 

Different chemical peels are designed for various purposes. At Hermann Aesthetics & Wellness, we offer the: 

  • Image Signature Peel

The Image Signature Peel is administered in 4 layers and, in just one application, will visibly improve the appearance of your skin. 

  • Lightening Lift Peel

This chemical peel contains lactic acids with a blend of lightening ingredients to address skin imperfections including rosacea, sun spots, and brown spots. 

  • Vitalize Peel

The Vitalize Peel significantly improves the tone and texture of the skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines. 

How Long Do the Results of a Chemical Peel Last?

Chemical peels come at three different depths: light, medium, and deep. The depth of a chemical peel will determine how long it lasts. 

Typically, the results from a light peel last for one to two months. Medium and deep chemical peels affect the deeper layers of your skin and, as a result, can provide permanent results. However, while you’ll likely need a few touch-up treatments throughout the year to maintain the results of a medium peel, deep chemical peels should only be done every few years to prevent skin damage.
