This woman's wrinkling around the mouth is about the mildest that I would consider appropriate for a peel.  Any less wrinkling, and I'd ask her to wait.  She was a good candidate from the standpoint of skin color: her pale skin was at low risk for a noticeable change in pigmentation resulting from the peel.

Our target was correction of the wrinkles in the upper and lower lips, and the more prominent wrinkles that looked like parentheses around the corners of her mouth.

Questioner: Why do I have to wait until I'm 18 years of age to have my nose fixed?
When I was about 10 or 12 I broke my nose in a car crash. I am 16 now and my nose is bent and my left nostril is blocked because of my nose bending towards the right because it's broken. I really want a doctor to just break it back or set it straight but when I went to hospital when I was 15, the doctors said I will have to wait until I am 18 to get it fixed. They said that my face is still developing so that's why they wont do it. Would it be possible if I could get it fixed at this age?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Hmm. I think you're probably ready.
In my practice, most women aged 15 or older are ready for a rhinoplasty. We like to see that a woman is having regular periods and is about done getting taller. Then it's okay.
