TheConsultation explains Phenol Peel
Nowadays, technology offers a phenol peel at various concentrations so cosmetic dermatologists can use the suitable formula that is required for each person's particular needs, offering a safe and with minimal side effects therapy.
Former phenol peels were surgical peels (peels performed in a surgical setting), with monitoring of the heart function. Now a phenol peel just requires a careful patients’ selection. As phenol penetrates in the deepest layers of the skin, it may result in irreversible hypopigmentation. For this reason, patients with dark skin aren't advised to use phenol peels.
