The Phenol Peel is one of the most aggressive peels on the market and is best performed by a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon.
A deep chemical skin peel, or phenol peel, is the strongest of chemical peels, and reserved for individuals with deep wrinkles from sun exposure, or is used to treat skin wrinkling around the lips and chin area. A consultation is required to determine if you’re a good candidate for this peel as it’s not for everyone. The procedure diminishes imperfections in sun-damaged, unevenly pigmented, or coarsely wrinkled facial areas by peeling away the skin’s top layers.
The healing process for a Phenol Chemical Peel differs per person. The formation of new skin can take anywhere from 7 to 21 days and you can resume normal activities again in 2 to 4 weeks. You will experience full benefits of the Phenol Chemical Peel in 3 to 6 months with results lasting decades.
