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.

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

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.
