Facial Burns from Croton Phenol Peel

Three years ago I had a Croton Phenol Peel done...

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 after one glass of wine. I look like a Cupie Doll. I was told the redness would wear off within six months.

The peel did get rid of wrinkles but at this cost, I know I could've done something else that would've been effective and not left this embarrasing stain.

What can be done to fix this? Thank you. Debra

I just don't think he expected this to happen. I doubt he had enough experience.
