Question

Is a chemical peel & chin augmentation suitable at the age of 16?

Answer

A chemical peel may be suitable for a teenager who is suffering either from acne scarring but has stabilised the acne, or has pigmentation problems after the acne.

With regards to chin augmentation, I would strongly favour waiting until the age of 19 or 20, then the face has become more defined in terms of its final size, so that your decision is more accurate.
