How Long is the Recovery from a Chemical Peel?

Enhancing the facial skin is the goal of many patients, especially those who have imperfections present such as sun damage or fine lines and wrinkles. With the help of a dermatologist, many patients will find that they have access to treatments that are designed to rejuvenate the skin’s appearance and health. At Florida Westcoast Skin and Cancer Center, we offer solutions that many patients find work to significantly improve their facial skin such as chemical peels.

What are chemical peels?

Dr. Michael Scannon and his team in Tampa, FL describe the chemical peel as a special blend of ingredients that are applied onto the skin for a specific period of time and then removed. The ingredients in the chemical peel will cause peeling and flaking of the upper layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells and rejuvenating the skin’s appearance. New skin growth occurs to enhance its appearance, improving pigmentation, wrinkles, and overall skin texture and tone. Chemical peels have been used for years to address a wide range of issues and continue to be a popular treatment for patients in the area looking for skin enhancement.

How long is recovery from chemical peels?

There are many different types of chemical peels available at Florida Westcoast Skin and Cancer Center. The mild, superficial chemical peels are often less aggressive. They require more treatments to see significant results, but are also affordable and require less downtime. However, patients who want dramatic results in a shorter period of time will want to ask about our stronger chemical peels. These will often require patients to take time off of work, school, and social activities as the redness, peeling, and flaking is substantial. The transformation of the skin, however, is much more noticeable and it allows for one treatment versus several for the same results.
