Skin Care Review: Chemical peel

by ray earnest, easton, MD usa

Adverse Effects


loss of pigmentation

I am a 58 year old caucasian woman who looks atleast 10 years younger than I am. I have relatively nice skin, but I am blond and my skin is a bit fragile. When I consulted a plastic surgeon about the lines above my lips, he suggested a chemical peel. Unfortunately, the peel did very little, if anything, to correct the lines. It did cause a significant loss of pigmentation. In addition, it was painful and unsightly. I would not recommend such a procedure for anyone with thin, delicate skin.

I would recommend that anyone with thin, delicate skin avoid chemical peels
