Do peels thin your skin?

Peels and resurfacing with either chemicals or lasers do take away unwanted layers of your skin. But they usually create a layer of good skin that helps with the reduction of wrinkles. This new layer of collagen is newly produced to help your skin tone, decrease pore size, and improve texture. An additional benefit is that it decreases the chances of skin cancer by allowing new skin to rejuvenate your skin.

There is a thinning affect that adjusts over time.  But it doesn’t really change the basic anatomy of your skin other than increasing an organized layer of collagen underneath the stem cells within the skin.

Consulting a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon would be something that I would recommend. We specialize in the face and are highly qualified to help you with this.
