How Often Can I Get a Chemical Peel?
The frequent use of acid peels may damage your skin if used too often. The frequency with which you can get chemical peels depends on the condition of your skin (normal to oily skin can be treated with peels more often than dry or combination skin), the problems you are treating, and the strength of the peel you are using.
- Light Chemical Peel removes the outer layer of the skin (epidermis). The light peel can be repeated every 2 to 5 weeks.
- Medium Chemical Peel removes skin cells from the epidermis and from the upper portion of the dermis (middle layer of skin). This medium peel can be repeated every 3 to 9 months to maintain results.
- Deep Chemical Peels remove skin cells from the epidermis and from the mid to lower layers of your dermis. This is used for deeper wrinkles, scars, or even precancerous growths. This type of peel can only be performed once.
