Deep chemical peel of the perioral region

This lovely lady had deep smokers lines despite the fact she had never smoked. Despite her advanced age, she really wanted to look her best. I performed a deep chemical peel to the area around her mouth. I told her that recovery would be challenging and indeed it was. It took about 2 weeks for her to fully heal and I had her use a strong topical steroid cream for a couple of weeks to prevent scarring.
