Why Phenol Peels are our Most Popular Chemical Skin Peels

Why Phenol Peels are one of our Most Popular Peels

With various chemical face peel options, deciding which is best for you can be difficult. However, our more frequently requested chemical face peel is the
phenol peel. First we we discuss why people request this peel; however, it should also be noted due to less down times, less invasive treatment and also good results our most popular peel is Dr Bong’s bespoke Medium Face Peel.

What is a Phenol Peel?

A chemical face peel is a type of exfoliation treatment that uses a topical solution containing an acid to improve the appearance of the skin. Different acids, such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and phenol, can be used in a chemical face peel. A Phenol peel is the strongest medical-grade chemical skin peel used to reduce wrinkles and other facial blemishes, help improve the appearance of your skin and is ideal for treating more severe facial imperfections. The phenol solution penetrates deeper into the skin than other types of peels, providing longer-lasting results. However, as you can imagine, an expert must apply these peels to ensure no damage is done.

Benefits of a Phenol Peel

Phenol peels are highly effective for treating severe wrinkles, sun damage, and, as mentioned above, other facial imperfections. The medical-grade strength of the phenol solution allows it to penetrate deeper into the skin than other types of peels, providing longer-lasting results. This peel offers long-lasting results by removing the top layers of the skin and stimulating collagen production, much to the delight of our clients.

Whether treating sun-damaged skin or pronounced facial wrinkles or imperfections, a Phenol peel is also helpful in treating crow’s feet lines, wrinkled skin around the eyes, and the upper and lower lips for vertical lines and sun damage. Furthermore it is an ideal treatment for:

• Age spots and correct uneven skin pigmentations

• Moderate-severely sun damaged & weathered skin

• A poor, sluggish complexion

• Crow’s feet and undereye wrinkles

• Smoker’s lines above and below lips

• Treat acne and soften the appearance of scars caused by acne

In summary, we recommend a phenol peel as a highly effective medical-grade skin peel that can provide long-lasting results for patients with sun-damaged skin or pronounced facial wrinkles or imperfections. Always consult with a qualified practitioner when embarking on any treatments, check online reviews and ask friends and family for recommendations.
