Petroleum jelly or a waterproof adhesive tape may be put on the skin following a phenol peel. During an AHA peel, the skin is cleansed and the solution applied. Afterward, there is no need for post-peel ointment or covering.

With a phenol peel, eyes could be swollen shut at first, and the patient may be put on a liquid diet and advised to keep talking to a minimum. Any adhesive tape used is removed after a day or two.
