PCA Skin: Chemical Peels

Glowing, fresh skin is lying just below the surface. PCA Corrective Peels are one of the top five non-surgical procedures that improve skin health and appearance. They aren’t the chemical peels of the 90s, so you don’t have to worry about burning pain and raw skin. Today’s PCA Peels have been refined and are designed to deliver rejuvenated results without the burning of peels from the past or the downtime of surgery.

The best part is, our advanced corrective peels are customized to improve your skin type. Whether you have oily or dehydrated skin, sun damage, melasma, or acne problems, you can restore your glowing, youthful skin.

Targeted Solutions For Every Skin Concern

Chemical peels are an important part of skin health. As an effective treatment option for most skin types and concerns, they improve tone, texture, fine lines and wrinkles, breakouts and dark spots, but many people are intimidated to go in for their first peel treatment. The fear of leaving with a bright red face that hurts prevents some from experiencing the many benefits of a peel. The post-peel reality is a glowing, healthy complexion. Here’s everything you need to know before your first PCA SKIN chemical peel:

1. Peeling is exfoliation. When your skin peels or flakes after a treatment your skin is shedding dead or damaged surface cells and revealing new, healthy skin cells on the surface. This action is called cell turnover. Supporting the cell turnover process with chemical peels is what allows the skin to shed dead cells and bring new, fresh skin to the surface, free of signs of aging, sun damage, dirt, and debris. The result is glowing skin.

2. Everyone experiences different levels of peeling, dependent upon skin type, resilience, type of peel and the number of layers applied. Some people experience ‘sheeting,’ when large portions of the skin peel off at once. Some experience ‘flaking,’ when small pieces of skin peel off, similar to dry, winter skin or mild peeling after a sunburn. Others experience exfoliation that is not visible. If you don’t peel, your skin is still exfoliating, rather the exfoliation is happening on a cellular level. Typically, the deeper the peel you receive, the more extensive peeling you will experience. Talk to your PCA Certified Professional to find out what type of peel is best for your skin.

3. Peels are easy to work into a busy lifestyle. There is no downtime with PCA SKIN chemical peels — you’ll leave your appointment with a healthy glow and able to carry on with your regular activities. There are steps to ensure that your results are maximized. Following a post-procedure regimen recommended by your PCA Certified Professional following your treatment will enhance your results and keep peeling and redness to a minimum. You should also avoid anything that causes sweating for 48 hours after treatment. Your clinician will give you more detailed instructions after your procedure, catered to your skin’s needs.

PCA Skin Peels

PCA Skin professional treatments are scientifically formulated to gently stimulate, firm, and tighten skin. Twenty years ago, PCA originated light to medium peels for use by physicians and highly trained skin care professionals to help you reach your skin goals.

Clinically researched formulations help to reduce the depth of surface lines, smooth rough skin texture, treat skin discoloration and redness, and assist in clearing acne/blemished skin without the downtime often associated with traditional chemical peels.

These progressive in-office treatment complement PCA Skin daily care products to speed the process toward visible, proven results. Our aestheticians will access your skin for the perfect combination of PCA Skin professional treatment and daily care products to dramatically improve skin health for a more beautiful complexion.

Advantages of PCA Skin Chemical Peels

Self-Neutralizing Formulas

PCA’s peel formulations self-neutralize when applied to the skin to maintain a safe pH balance for less irritation.

Layer and Leave-On Method

PCA Skin peels adhere to a layer and leave-on technique to provide complete control over the strength and depth of treatment.

Advanced Ingredient Profiles

PCA’s peels are formulated with the essential ratio of exfoliating acids and antioxidants to enhance stability and delivery for a powerful skin renewal experience.
