How Long Do Chemical Peels Take?
Timing plays an essential role in how well your peel works. Your Capital Laser & Skin Care expert will choose a peel for you and leave it on for the appropriate amount of time based on your unique skin condition and goals. A customized approach to chemical peels will deliver the best results. The length of time the peel is on the skin will range from a few minutes to even a few hours.
What Types of Chemical Peels are Available?
Chemical peels range from light to deep, and each level works best for different skin concerns. We offer multiple peel options to meet your individual needs.
These peels brighten and refresh the skin by removing dull, damaged outer layers. Since they only remove the outermost layers of skin, they require no downtime. You can have one every two to five weeks to see progressively smoother, clearer skin.
A medium peel removes the outer layers and part of the middle layer of the skin, allowing it to treat deeper lines, wrinkles, and textural issues. You should wait three to nine weeks between medium peels. Results improve with each treatment.
This peel works deep into the skin to remove even significant signs of aging. It can even remove some precancerous growths. You will only have one deep peel, and you can expect the results to last for many years. Only board-certified dermatologists should administer these powerful peels. Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, Dr. Geeta Shah, and Dr. Tania Peters at Capital Laser & Skin Care are all board-certified dermatologists with years of experience.
