Experiencing a skin peel does not always happen after a chemical peel. You may not experience a skin peel after the procedure, depending on the amount of old and dead skin on your body, and the type of peel.

The number of chemical pees procedures to be carried out on you depends on your desired and expected result, as well as the diagnosis. Generally, to renew the skin texture, 1-3 procedures within a year are suggested. The actual number will be let known during your consultation with Dr. Susan Lin.

The downtime duration is largely dependent on the type of chemical peel treatment procedure carried out. While some simple peels will renew, hydrate, and brighten your skin immediately after the procedure, others will cause skin peeling for 1 week after the procedure.
