How long will I “peel” for following a treatment.

Peeling, sloughing , and flaking of the skin are possible side effects from the peel. Success of a peel is measured by skin improvement, not the amount of peeling. Image chemical peels are designed to support the skin during the rejuvenation process, which results in less visible side effects. If peeling does occur, it will typically occur on days 2-4 following treatment and resolve by days 6 or 7.
