Question: For years I was a sun worshipper and now my skin is horribly sun damaged. Can a chemical peel improve my skin? Answer: Photodamage or sun damage to the skin can be corrected through a number of ways, including internally with diet, vitamins, exercise and avoiding sun exposure. For more severe problems we perform laser procedures and chemical peels and/or topical treatments. Patients need to come in to the practice to really be evaluated to see what the underlying problems are and we usually start with the simplest technique possible.
