How often should you do chemical peels to maintain the results.

How often you do peels can be subjective and dependent on how you feel your skin is doing and for what condition you are treating.  Chemical peels can be varied in terms of how deep you want the peel and how deep the issues you are trying to treat. Superficial wrinkles and pigmentation issues can be improved by superficial peels.  Deeper wrinkles and pigmentation can be improved by more aggressive and deeper peels.  Deeper peels should not be repeated for several months and even up to a year.  Your physician can monitor how you are healing and determine this.  Superficial peels allow a faster recovery and thus you can do these much more frequently.  Glycolic peels can be done 2-3 times per week depending on how a person is tolerating the treatments.  Your doctor can help you determine this.  To maintain the results you need to determine with your doctor how your results are coming along.
