I have many age spots on my forehead and cheeks. Otherwise I don’t look too bad for a 76-year-old grandpa. I would like to reduce the appearance of these pigmented spots. Can a chemical peel do this and what would the recovery time be?
Yes a chemical or laser peel would be effective in reducing age spots. The recovery time to look reasonable is about 2 weeks. You will still have some redness to the skin for several more weeks that will fade over time.
