There are many types of peels. Prior assessment of skin type and condition is must before deciding on the type of peel for getting good results and for reducing the side effects as peeling involves chemicals which sometimes may result in unwanted effects.

After a medium or deep peel, you will have downtime. A deep chemical peel requires rest at home for 2 to 3 weeks.
Results are seen once the skin heals and healing time ranges from 1 day for a refreshing or lunchtime peel to 14 days or longer for a deep peel. To get the ideal results you may need 3 to 5 sittings of chemical peels.
Results are not permanent as it is impossible to stop ageing and so are the effects of ageing on the skin, but peels help in quick fixing the ageing effects.
