Patient - Combined Facial Procedures
Click on an image below to see a larger version.
This very attractive woman presented with two primary complaints. She did not like her heavy, droopy upper eyelids, which she felt made her look older and tired. She had a history of fairly severe acne scarring of her cheeks. She was a good candidate for an upper eyelid blepharoplasty (tuck) and a skin peel using 50% TCA (trichloroacetic acid). TCA is a wonderful peeling agent, very safe, and effective for someone like her. I explained that no procedure exists that will eliminate acne scars. We can only hope to soften them.
She is shown 4 months after both procedures. Her eyes look more open and youthful and her skin is visibly smoother, with a nice glow. This is a nice result with TCA. For more improvement, a second peel could be done after 3 months from the first. The nice thing about TCA is that it does not permanently lighten the skin like more aggressive chemicals and lasers can.
