I want to have a chemical peel.

Question: I want to have a chemical peel but I was hoping to go on vacation with my family about 2 weeks after the procedure. What is the recovery time usually like after the procedure?

Answer: The recovery for a chemical peel is highly dependent on which chemicals are used for the actual peel process.  If you undergo a light chemical peel you may only have a day or two of very light peeling and some mild pinkness and sensitivity of the skin for the first week or so.  If you have a deep chemical peel then this may take a full week to heal and then your skin will be pink and sensitive for many more weeks to come.
