Types of Chemical Peels
Chemical peels resurface then skin by chemical wounding. The agent used and the depth of wounding are determining for the effects of the peel.
With deep rhytids and overall skin laxity the patient may be better served with a rhytidectomy.
Dynamic wrinkles, especially around the eyes and the forehead may be better treated with botulinum toxin.
Preconditioning of the skin is sometimes used to decrease potential complications and increase wound healing speed.
