Phenol Peel for Lip Wrinkles ("smoker's Mouth" Or "lipstick Lines")

A phenol peel, the deepest kind of peel available, is a good method of resurfacing the skin and scouring away lipstick lines. Phenol peels targeted to the mouth area are called perioral.

A perioral phenol peel costs between $2,000-$3,000, while a full-face peel will run $3,000-$5,000. The stronger the concentration of the peel, the more impressive the results –and the longer the recovery time. It can take between five and 15 days to recover from the peel.

Because a phenol peel can cause permanent pigmentation changes in the skin, your doctor may opt to apply a phenol peel to your entire face to avoid any demarcation lines. Phenol peels are only suitable for light-skinned people, as the risk of pigmentation changes increases with the amount of melanin in the skin.
