Phenol or TCA Peel Help with the Tired Look Under my Eyes

Good question! Thanks for the photos. In my opinion I would not recommend phenol peeling as it is to aggressive. 20% TCA or 35% TCA are good options in a series once a month until you are satisfied. From MIAMI Dr. Darryl J. Blinski, 305 598 0091.

You need a program of skin care (OBAJI), then a series of chemical peels. The type of peel will be determined during the consult.
