I am 4 weeks post peel. It was paintful for the first 11 days but with the pain medication (I took Percoset)and numbing meds (Lidocaine)I was ok. Slept pretty much the first 4-5 days. It is imperitive that you have someone with you (preferably a nurse) to administer your medications and apply... READ MORE

I had a croton oil/phenol peeling. It was horrible , the pain and burning are severe. Now I still have problems with my forehead. It's red and painful. I also have red and rough spots on my cheeks. Has anybody had the same and will the rough spots disappear later? Thanks for any comment. I... READ MORE

I had a phenol peel done under my eyes and around my mouth five weeks ago. The skin under my eyes is still bright red and I am not so concerned about that. What worries me is the texture. The skin is very bumpy under both eyes and there are two raise fine lines under my left eye and one... READ MORE

I have never wanted my photo taken due to the bags under my eyes and the droopy upper lids. I had this done yesterday, my eyes are almost swollen shut, but I'm sure after healing it will be great! I wasn't anxious about the surgery, usually I am. I am taking daily pictures to see the progress... READ MORE

After spending a great deal of time tan, the years of the tanning bed had taken their toll on my 48 year old face. After giving it up, I realized that I was left with wrinkle, uneven skin tone, and dark patches. I was origninaly going to go for lazer, but my doctor said the results would be much... READ MORE

I am going to attempt to give as much knowledge to those considering a croton oil/phenyol peel as possible. Prior to having mine, I researched all types of face enhancement procedures and became well acquainted with every procedure and product that one might choose for face enhancement. I... READ MORE

Im really hoping the pain doesn't last to long right now I'm just 6 hours post op so can't tell you much yet.... READ MORE

I am a 34 year old redhead who has tried Fraxel, the Yag laser, and botox in an effort to soften crow's feet and acne scars. Nothing has worked and my dermatologist with a PhD from Harvard recommended a Phenol Peel. He performed the peel in a public hospital in Taipei, Taiwan yesterday.... READ MORE

I had hyper pigmentation below my eyes- nothing huge but I was tired of wearing such heavy makeup to hide them. I tried a few treatments (inc. tretonin and Obaji Clear) with no real change; therefore my dermatologist recommended a phenol peel to bleach my skin lighter. The treatment itself... READ MORE

OK, I had this done 04/29. 05/01 my entire lower face was swollen so bad that I didn't even look like myself, but on the up side, I didn't take anything at all for pain that day.It's 05/02 and I awake to see that the swelling is going down some, still there, but not nearly as bad. And the pain... READ MORE

I was not sure if to have a surgical face lift or any non-surgical peel or leaser type, I came across with that peel and started asking around , it looked like unbelievable at the beginning since the photos I have seen Looked better than any other face lift including the neck area , Any way...

I did not want to have a facelift, just have an aversion to surgery so I opted for the croton oil peel. First several days you look like you have the worse sunburn of your life; discomfort that required pain killers the first 24-hours; used cooling "baths" of cold white vinegar compresses,...

Growing up in Arizona without spending much thought on the proper care of protecting my skin has left my skin with many fine & deep wrinkles. Add smoking and genetics & I am looking much older than my 39 years. After much deliberation, I have decided to go thru with the expensive &... READ MORE

"Incredible"..."You look at least 10 yrs younger!" Comments I regularly heard after I had my croton oil peel. I was inspired to get the peel after a couple people I knew had it done and had impressive results. I was given detailed information as to what to expect day by day... READ MORE

I had a phenol in September. It was with a board certified Plastic Surgeon and an Anesthesiologist. It was expensive. It was worth it. Before I did it I searched all the boards for information about this procedure. All I found were not of much use. Nothing really told you what will go on the... READ MORE

I had a phenol ( hetter ) peel done in Jan of 2008. It was to treat some acne scarring I had but if I would of known what I was going to go through I would have NEVER done it.First it was so painful I could barely stand it. For the first 12 hours afterwards I had to have gauze dipped in icewater... READ MORE

Pros are complete removal of winkles. Cons are that you do have to care for the area for a week. I did it to tighten skin under my eyes and remove wrinkles. I have had a few plastic surgery proceedures but the results from this treatment rivel any that I had with a knife! It looks... READ MORE

Three years ago I had a Croton Phenol Peel done and my surgeon was feeling generous. He not only applied the product below my eyes but quite generously for about two inches. The result is a stained red triangle beneath both eyes, high on the cheeks. I look like I've been drinking all day even... READ MORE

I got a deep chamical peel, a phenol peel done a few months ago. At first i was very worried about my skin changing color permanently but the doctor assured me that phenol gives great results on white women. Even if the skin does change color on a white skin, it does not show as much and so it... READ MORE

Hi. I had a phenol peel 8 months ago. It was very strong, painful, but the results were excellent. I was mildly sedated as phenol peel is very strong the doctor suggested that i be mildly sedated so that i am confortable. My skin was cleaned, then the solution was applied and a timer was set...
