This woman presented for treatment of changes associated with sun damage, including fine lines, irregular pigmentation and rough texture. She had more pronounced changes around the mouth, where there were numerous fine lines and wrinkles.
The patient underwent a medium depth chemical peel over her entire face with the exception of the area immediately around her mouth. The medium depth peel consisted of Glycolic Acid followed by 35% Trichloroacetic Acid. The area around her mouth was treated with an Erbium: YAG laser to resurface the area and remove deeper wrinkles. She healed well without any problems and was very satisfied with the improved color, texture and lack of wrinkles.
