What is a Chemical Peel?
PCA SKIN chemical peels are formulated wth unique ingredient blends that work with your skin to allow for comfortable treatments without sacrificing efficacy. The result is increased cell turnover and fresh, healthy skin is revealed.
 
What do peels treat?
PCA SKIN chemical peels can improve and prevent most skin concerns, including discoloration, aging, and even rosacea and acne.
 
Who are peels for?
Chemical peels are for everyone. Whether your skin is dry, oily, combination, or even sensitive, there is a chemical peel treatment that will work for you.
 
Why do I need a peel?
Our skin naturally exfoliates, gently shedding dead skin cells so subtly that most of us don't even notice. However, as we age, this process tends to slow, resulting in a dull complexion.
 
How do peels work?
Chemical peels speed up the exfoliation process, encouraging cell turnover that leaves the skin looking fresh and healthy. The result is exfoliation after a treatment, often seen in the form of peeling or flaking that lasts a couple days. Ingredients in the peel solution are also working to create new cells that function properly, not only visibly improving the skin, but correcting from within.
 
How do I look after the peel?
PCA SKIN chemical peels leave you with a healthy glow, not bright red. They also have minimal downtime. You can even schedule it during your lunch break!
 
When do I get a peel?
Chemical peels are usually recommended once a month, paralleling the skin's natural 28-day cell turnover process for the best results. Depending on your skin concern, your esthetician may recommend them more or less frequently. PCA SKIN chemical peels have little to no downtime, allowing for treatments that won't disrupt your schedule.
