I love getting peels. I have been doing this for the past couple of years and I really see the difference. I usual ally get 2 peels a year and it really helps my skin feel and look more even. The pigmentation lightens and my skin looks and feels younger. Diane has been doing my peels and she is... READ MORE

Hi, A little over 3 weeks ago, I had a Hetter peel done around my eyes. I now have very rough dry skin (extremely tiny, tiny bumps) on the top and underneath of my eyes and I am so afraid it won't heal. Has anyone else suffered from this. If so, what did you use to help correct this? I used... READ MORE

I saw Dr Villano in November 2013 to discuss what face lift procedures would be needed to lift my sagging neckline and remedy the family curse, the double or triple chin. He recommended the phenol peel. He said if we skipped the peel I would not be happy, I would look like an old lady with a... READ MORE

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

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
