A female asked:

Is a peel a good idea for wrinkles at the age of 19? are there any long term benefits and will the wrinkles dissappear?

Wrinkle treatment: I am not sure what kind of wrinkles a 19 year old would get. Are they smile lines? The 11's? Generally, someone so young would not have the lines associated with "aging " skin. However, these lines may be the result of natural facial movement. Good skin care is important at any age. There may be some light peels that are appropriate for your skin type. I would recommend you see an aesthetician.

Skin health: Skin peels can provide exfoliation and cleanse the surface thus contributing to the health of yourcomplexion. It temporarily tightens your skin, but does not permanently remove wrinkles or scars.
