How long does it take to get a chemical peel? I heard that you need several treatments.
There are many different types of chemical peels available. Light chemical peels were performed in the office and take approximately 30 minutes. Depending upon the depth of the peel healing time can be anywhere from one to 3 days. The degree of improvement from this type of treatment will require multiple peels to achieve the desired effect. Deeper chemical peels are performed by the physician in the operating room. This type of peel takes 30 minutes to an hour to perform but has significant recovery time totaling up to 2 weeks. The results of this peel however are significant.
