If you only look at the price of a peel, you may not get what you really need necessarily. Questions to ask about peels include: they type of peel planned, how deep will the peel go, how long is the recovery time, and the approximate result expected. Realize most medical grade peels accomplish the best results in a series of 3-5.

There are deep, resurfacing peels available that can require 1-3 weeks to recover. Usually, sun exposure is to be avoided during the healing process and adjustments in one’s schedule might be required. Ask ahead and you’ll plan better resulting in an improved result.
