Say --and this is often the case--that time, heredity and constant exposure to the sun have dried, wrinkled and aged your skin, especially around the neck, eyes, cheeks and mouth. The doctor evaluates you physically and psychologically. He quickly points out that Chemosurgery will not eradicate the deep lines caused by the muscles of facial expression though they can be lessened in varying degrees. The smile and Frown lines are (wo such examples. Deep frown lines can be altered by plastic surgery, hut such an alteration usually changes the person's basic expression. Should you have fine lines, crow's feet, cross-checks around the eyes and cheeks, vertical lines on your upper lip, lines on your neck, all of which can benefit from a face-peel, the doctor tells you so. If you are mutually acceptable, he schedules you. A One Hour Job You come into his office one morning. To put you at ease, he gives you a tranquilizer, a bit of pre operative sedation that includes a pain-killing analgesic. You lie down on his operating table and he photographs you for the "before" photos. Then he lakes a cotton applicator of the proper size and shape, depending on the area to be treated, dips it into an acid solution especially prepared with your type and texture of skin in mind.

You will never look better. Gradually the rosy'glow fades into normal skin color. One morning you look al yourself in the mirror. Happily, you realize that you look a good 10 or 15 years younger tliau you are. The cost of the operation varies considerably, depending upon the extent and severity of the wrinkling, and thus on the amount of time, effort and responsibility required. It usually ranges between $350 and $1,500. Some patients need a repeat application. Let me repeat, however, no one should submit to Chemosurgery unless it's performed by a qualified physician.
