Although a facelift is the only way to truly correct sagging skin, lines and wrinkles can be addressed without an operation.
Chemical peels that employ a peeling agent like phenol penetrate deeply to remove the top and middle layers of the skin. Once these dead layers are eliminated, most of the lines, folds and wrinkles on the face can be reduced.
One downside to deep peels is that, unlike a laser, the intensity can’t be controlled. Lasers work toward the same goal as chemical peels-just with the added benefit of giving your doctor more control as to how deep the adjustable beams penetrate the skin.
However, deep peels and lasers both help to soften the leathery look of sun-damaged skin and lines around the lips.
