What is the recovery time after a chemical peel?
How much time should I put aside for recovery after I have a superficial chemical peel? The superficial chemical peel is the least invasive one.
Recovery from chemical peel depends on the depth of the peel and the strength of the medical used. Typically, in my experience, we try to limit it to under 5 days for outpatients, and 7-8 days for patients who are getting their chemical peels with surgery (like a facelift). Of course the deeper peels have better results, so it's helpful to invest in the recovery time if possible.
