Question: If I had a chemical peel on my face and upper chest, how long do the rejuvenating effects last? Is the skin reddened afterwards and for how long?
Answer: It depends on the type and depth of penetration. Please read my previous discussion on peels. You can expect a longer recovery period with prolonged redness with deeper penetrating peels. These often provide more-longer lasting results. For very superficial peels, the recovery is none or very short.
