As a general rule of thumb, blended peels such as The Perfect Peel and stronger peels with TCA incur at least 5 days of social downtime, by which time the peel process will begin to complete itself. Salicylic and Jessner peels are 'weekend' peels in that they typically require 3 days of social downtime. Normally, the skin doesn't start to peel until 48-72 hours after your treatment.

No social downtime is required after AHA peels such as Kojic, Glycolic and Lactic acid. Occasionally, mild flaking and erythema (redness) will occur; this can be concealed with mineral make up.
