Question : I have a lot of small spots of discoloration scattered all over my face and neck. Would a chemical peel be able to alleviate or even get rid of the spots?
Answer : Yes, chemical peels of various depths can decrease this pigmentation. In our practice we prefer superficial peels done by our aesthetician followed by one of the Obagi systems for long term improvement and skin rejuvenation. You skin will not just be lighter, it will look healthier. This is a gradual process. Often, however, we can get an even better overall clearing of the spots, fine lines and overall skin rejuvenation with our Portrait® skin rejuvenation with just one treatment. For the neck and chest, we like IPL (Intense Pulsed Light).
