How long it takes to recover from a chemical peel varies based on the strength of peel you receive. Your return to normal activity can range from a day to a week with a light peel. A medium or deep chemical peel can require 1-2 weeks.
Refresh & Reset with Chemical Peels in Kansas City
Over time, dead skin cells build up on your skin, causing dullness, flaking, and texture. One of the best ways to give your skin a refresh is with a professional chemical peel.
For more radiant, glowing skin, it’s important to exfoliate and encourage skin cell turnover. There are two forms of exfoliation: chemical and physical. While physical exfoliation has its place, it is oftentimes too abrasive for inflamed or sensitive skin. Chemical peels at the Kansas City Skin & Cancer Center provide a more gentle approach. They use professional-grade ingredients to exfoliate away dead skin cells for restored, beautiful skin.

Recovery & Downtime
Depending on the depth of the chemical peel, downtime may not be required, but you must take care of your skin, as it will be more sensitive than usual. You are free to return to work or your regular routine after leaving our office, but some redness and sensitivity are normal.
Many patients that combine treatments notice better, faster results than doing one treatment alone. If you’re interested in learning more about combining or scheduling multiple treatments together, contact us!
