Chemical Peel: You made and appointment and consulted a dermatologist who recommended a chemical peel. We have not examined you or even seen pictures of your skin, we don't know if you are trying to improve scars, pigmentation of actual hyperkeratosis. We also don't know your age or gender or any medical information about you. So, how can we help you second guess your dermatologist?
