The skin is a diverse organ with many different components. It provides a certain amount of protection for muscles, organs, and other bodily structures. The natural processes of aging and certain environmental factors can affect certain areas.

Common skin defects might include existing acne, acne scars, liver spots, fine lines, freckles, dark spots, and physical scars. These cosmetic imperfections can sometimes have a negative impact on your self-image and sense of self-esteem.

If you feel this way, you should consider setting up a consultation appointment at Institute for Plastic Surgery’s clinic. Dr. Otis Allen can assess the dermal imperfections and help you understand the most effective method for reducing their appearance.

One possible option that he might recommend is to have a chemical peel treatment. It uses a specially formulated chemical solution to smooth your skin’s texture. While it is primarily used on the face a chemical peel can also be sued to address minor skin defects on the neck and hands. It can also help with rough or scaly skin on certain parts of the body.

Dr. Otis Allen will go over these factors and potential risks during your initial consultation. It might not be the best option for all dermal imperfections.

If you live in the Bloomington, Illinois area and you are struggling to deal with cosmetic dermal defects, you should call 309.827.3881 to schedule a chemical peel consultation at Institute for Plastic Surgery.
