Aging is inevitable. However, visible signs of facial aging don’t have to be. There is no shortage of cosmetic treatments that are designed to help patients turn back the clock by fighting off common signs of aging like wrinkles, age spots, dulled skin tone, and more. And while there are a lot of potential options for patients who wish to look younger, my new Croton Oil Peel is the most exciting and helpful of them all in my opinion.

facial treatments, croton oil peel, phenol, reduce wrinkles, facial rejuvenationThe Croton Oil Peel, sometimes referred to as a modified phenol peel, is among the leading chemical peel treatments available today. A Croton Oil Peel is a deep chemical peel that is able to provide truly outstanding, long-term rejuvenation of the facial skin with just a single treatment. This treatment is recommended for patients who experience premature facial aging in multiple areas of the face including the mouth, forehead, and around the eyes.

The Croton Oil Peel combines croton oil with phenol to penetrate deep into the facial skin and treat wrinkles and lines, sun damage, age spots, and pigmentation issues. The peel can also help exfoliate the facial skin, leading to a brighter and smoother complexion. You may begin to notice improvement immediately after your treatment, but your face will continue to improve as the weeks go on until you achieve the final outstanding aesthetic result. Makeup can be safely applied to the face after a week of recovery time.

Although some patients may see this treatment as an alternative to plastic surgery, the truth is that it’s very common for people to combine a facial procedure like a facelift or eyelid surgery with a Croton Oil Peel. Combining these cosmetic procedures allows my patients the opportunity to achieve a level of facial rejuvenation previously thought to be impossible.

I have been performing cosmetic treatments for nearly three decades and the Croton Oil Peel is the most exciting treatment I have come across in the last ten years.
