NO, NO, NO NO
Deep phenol peels are for deep etched wrinkles. There is no better treatment. However the is no control over the pigmentation effects and there is a line of demarcation at the borders of the peel in terms of color and texture, You may lighten. You may darken. You may blotch. Highly pigmented skin is at greatest risk. In some populations there is increased chance of scars.
At twenty two years old, you cannot afford to take a chance that may unfavorably alter your life. If you are beautiful on the inside, you will be beautiful on the outside. NO, NO, NO, NO
