Hey guys,

Just had a phenol peel. MAJOR downtime...around 9 days before you can really do anything. WELL worth it, though. Got rid of about 85-90 percent of crater like scaring which is mostly what I had :D Highly recommened, if done with the right doc. I went to the *moderator edit*!! Thanks :D

What were you told regarding discoloration? Every post on forums and cautions point out that discoloration is not a matter of whether it will happen or not but, to what extent.

What? Isn't downtime like three months?

Oh ive always wondered what it would be like to have a phenol peel !!! I heard people havent done them for years, in place of laser. Always have had a fondness for peels though.

I did some hefty tca peels (i realise they are weaker) and whilst they improved them a bit, the scars were always still there. they always reappeared about 10 days after the procedure...

Do tell more... Im curious, how long ago did you have the procedure?
