Phenol Peel and Croton Oil Peel
The Phenol peel and Croton oil peel are chemical peeling processes used to rejuvenate the skin on the face. A Phenol peel is the strongest type of peel available. It is usually used on severely aged skin and very deep wrinkles. This procedure is known to take the longest time to recover. The result is are similar to a CO2 laser. The process works by dissolving the upper layer of skin allowing the skin to regenerate with a smother upper layer over time.
A Croton Oil Peel is a more gentle process and is more suited for younger patients. Its recovery time is significantly shorter and the process is also well suited for treating wrinkled loose skin below and around the eyes.
