I'm 35 yrs old & have made an appointment with a board certified specialist for the next week. Any suggestions for pigmentation?

I was wondering if a medium grade acid peel would work well for dark pigment changes on my forehead and under my eyes as well as a laser resurfacing would?

It would be best to post a photo to see whether you would be a better candidate for a chemical peel versus a laser.  A lot depends on your skin type and the type of pigmentation that you are trying to treat.  Best, Dr. Green

Please post photos, as you may be a better candidate for peels over time than resurfacing.  Best, Dr. Emer.
