Skin conditions afflict many people. When these conditions affect the face, consultation with a plastic surgeon is sometimes sought. Sun-damage, coarse skin, fine wrinkling, irregular coloration, and other problems can be helped with individualized treatment. A complete skin care program might include surgical or nonsurgical methods. This comprehensive program should be individualized to achieve the optimal result. Nonsurgical methods might include a skin cream that contains glycolic (glye-CALL-ik) acid that can improve fine facial wrinkling and sun-damaged skin. Surgical treatment might include laser resurfacing to minimize acne scars, pitting, and deeper facial wrinkles. For more information on skin concerns, contact a cosmetic surgeon or a skin care professional.
