Jump To

Say goodbye to brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles! Do you want to take your skin back to how it looked 10-15 years ago? Then the croton oil peel may be for you! The croton oil peel (also called modified phenol peel or Hetter peel) is a chemical treatment that penetrates deeply into the skin. This peel rejuvenates the surface of the skin for results that last. The croton oil peel is a specially formulated peel based on years of publications and research. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia by Dr. Eberbach. The croton oil peel is nearly painless postoperatively, patients report the first few days feeling like a bad sunburn. It does take the skin between 7-14 days to completely peel. After which there is the pinkness of new skin that can last for several months (this can easily be covered by makeup).

The modified peel can be done on the entire face for an overall skin rejuvenation, or only in localized areas such as under the eyes for “creepy” lower lids or around the mouth to remove the vertical smoker’s lines. Localized peri-oral peels can be done, peeling to a medium depth at most. An excellent location for segmental peeling is the eyelids. This peel is for surface damage, if you you have looseness of your neck and jowls a face lift would be the best procedure for you.


  • Dramatic and lasting surface rejuvenation of the face.
  • Tighter skin—Following this peel, patients also will show between 20 – 25% facial skin tightening.
  • Less age spots and pigmentation problems
  • Less wrinkles around the mouth, crow’s feet, forehead furrows and cheeks. The Croton oil peels are impressive for peri-oral wrinkles (those around the mouth) and of the lower eyelids. These areas can be done isolated with much less recovery time.

For best results patients should prep their skin for 1 month prior to the procedure with Retin-A, Melamix and Melamin.

Need something with a bit less down time?  Fractora is a good option for patients who don’t have as much surface damage or don’t have the down time.
