The combination phenol-croton oil chemical peel is a medium to deep depth chemical peel that provides stunning results in the treatment of many of the most worrisome aging facial changes, including wrinkles, brown spots, skin discoloration, and thin, loose skin. The concept of this procedure originated several decades ago, and over time it has been fine-tuned into one of the most effective and reliable forms of skin resurfacing available. When the entire face is treated, the procedure is usually performed under sedation, so that the patient is asleep but breathing on their own. The peel solution is carefully applied to the face in varying strengths based on the patient’s specific skin type and particular needs. Over the next 7-10 days, the peel solution removes the top layer of skin while simultaneously stimulating new, rejuvenated skin to form in its place. Unlike the lighter chemical peels that are offered with our aesthetician, this peel is only performed by Dr. Cain and Dr. Richardson, who both have extensive training in the science and artistry of this procedure. The strength of this peel allows it to treat much more severe changes that have arisen from sun damage and the aging process, and the results are permanent. If you would like to discuss which type of skin resurfacing is best for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Cain or Dr. Richardson to discuss all of the options and determine which procedure is most suitable to provide the results you desire.
