I have been a smoker for the past 40 years. Will a chemical peel help reduce my wrinkles and poor skin?
If you have been a smoker for 40 years then the first and most important thing that you need to do prior to any chemical peel is to stop smoking. Once you have stopped smoking then the improvement of your skin with a chemical peel can take place. If you have significant skin damage then you will likely require a medium or deep chemical peel to adequately address facial wrinkles and discoloration. Lasers are also available for skin rejuvenation and which laser we choose will depend on the amount of damage to your skin and the amount of time you are able to take in order to recover.
