Ok, so maybe we don't ask for a list of references but at the very least we should ask if they have experience doing certain procedures on our skin types. Ask for a number, "Less than 20 patients?" Says Dr. Woolery-Lloyd, "More than 50 patients?" In this case, numbers do matter so don't be afraid to ask!
Will One Do the Trick
With limited time and money it's ok to ask if there is one treatment that will cover a multitude of skin issues.
Dr. Woolery-Lloyd I recommends salicylic acid peels to treat acne. melasma, dark spots, uneven skin tone and poor skin texture
However, you should ask your doctor which is right for your skin type.
