The second type of chemical peel goes deeper than a light one and enters your skin’s middle layer. This means it can attack some of the more longer-lasting skin issues you’ve faced for many years. It’s highly popular when used to treat acne scarring and uneven skin tones.
We don’t recommend that patients have a medium peel as frequently as a light one due to how deep it goes. You need a longer time to recover, and the results will be better after just one treatment. For these reasons, you only need one every 3 to 9 months.
Finally, a deep chemical peel goes all the way down into the lower layers of your skin. This is only used in specific situations – such as very deep wrinkles, scars, and so on. You should only have one deep peel performed – it can’t be done again.
