Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredYou'll see the results of a superficial chemical peel when your skin heals, generally within two to three weeks. It will take longer for you to see the results after a medium or deep chemical peel. In that case, it may take as long as four months for your skin to heal and new skin to grow.
Patricia K Farris, MD, Dermatology, answered
If it's a superficial peel like glycolic or salicylic acid you may need a series of treatments before you see results. These are generally done every two to three weeks. More aggressive peels like TCA will leave you red and peeling for about a week but after you are healed you will see immediate results.

After the side effects wear off, you will see glowing fresh skin revealed - usually about a week to ten days after a TCA peel.
