I would like the deepest strength chemical peel that you provide. I am 55 years old, male and have acne scars on my cheeks and wrinkling in all the usual places. I also have several age spots that I would like removed. What will my face look like during the recovery period? How long is the recovery period?
For the particular facial issues that you have described, you are going to require a medium to deep chemical peel. The recovery period form such a peel is about one week. You can expect to be red and swollen for the first few days and the redness will resolve over the next week. Strict wound care instructions will be given to you that you will be required to follow to insure that you avoid potential side effects and complications from your chemical peel.
