The plastic lens will become foggy over time, and the amount of light it provides will be significantly reduced.

Headlight restoration can last from 10 months to three years. However, this will vary depending on different factors such as the lens type, sealant, maintenance, and conditions. If your car is parked in direct sunlight without covering, you will need to get this service more often. Also, the time will decrease if your detailer doesn’t use a proper sealer.

The time needed will depend on the size and current conditions of the headlights. It will take from 30 minutes up to 1 hour to polish a lens. For large lenses or ones that need more sanding, the process might take 40 minutes per headlight.
