After chemical peel 7-10 days healing is complete. You need to use sun screen lotion and moisturizer for 2-3mths

There are different types of chemical peels and each one have their downtime. There is Party P which gives instant glow without any downtime. Then there is lactic peel which is very mild and may have some scaling or peeling for 4-5 days. Then there is salicylic peel, glycolic acid peel, more active peels like TCA Peels which have even higher downtime. On an average most of the peels will have downtime of 3-5 days.
