The December 2012 issue of Dermatologic Surgery (2012;38:2011-2015) contained a histopathologic case study of 3 patients with facial wrinkles treated with an in-office 88% phenol peel based in a punctuated fashion. The 88% phenol peel was applied in a localized dot manner with a toothpick soaked in phenol solution. The dots were separated by 3 mm along the length of the facial wrinkles. None of the patients were sedated and there was no patient downtime seen. This same procedure also was performed on the preauricular region. [More]

The nonsurgical, or liquid, facelift has become increasingly popular and use of PLLA is one of the cornerstones of this procedure. [More]
