Can You See Results After One Chemical Peel?
Chemical peels are one of the most popular medical grade resurfacing treatments available. Using a combination of acids, peels remove the upper layers of skin to reveal fresh skin beneath. It also delivers moisture and nutrients to this newly revealed skin. This can treat a variety of skin conditions and concerns including acne scars and aging. Before seeking out chemical peels for the first time, many patients ask, “Can you see results after one chemical peel?”
Generally, yes. Once they heal, patients usually can see a difference in the look and feel of their skin. However, stronger strength peels such as the VI peel and surgical chemical peels (which are not offered at Northwest Face & Body) tend to show more dramatic results sooner than more superficial peels.
Some of the results patients may notice following a chemical peel include:
- Smoother skin texture
- More even skin tone
- Reduction in acne breakouts
- Skin that appears firmer
- Lessening of the common signs of aging
Even though patients may see some results following one chemical peel, for most commonly performed peels, results will only improve over time. Our master estheticians tend to recommend a regimen of chemical peels until you reach your goals, and then maintenance peels as needed.
