Exfoliate damaged skin
and reveal glowing skin

Chemical peels are skincare treatments that involve applying a chemical solution to the skin, causing it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. This process stimulates cell turnover, revealing fresher, smoother skin underneath. Chemical peels can be customized to address specific concerns such as acne, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and uneven texture. They vary in depth, from superficial to deep, offering options suitable for different skin types and concerns.

Chemical peels treat the following:

  • Acne and acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone and texture

Chemical peels FAQs

How do PCA SKIN chemical peels work?

PCA SKIN chemical peels work by utilizing various acids, such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), and trichloroacetic acid (TCA), to induce controlled exfoliation of the skin. These acids penetrate the epidermis and dermis, dissolving the bonds between dead skin cells and stimulating cellular turnover. This promotes the shedding of damaged skin layers, revealing healthier, smoother skin beneath. Additionally, chemical peels can stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity and firmness over time.

How long does a chemical peel take?

The duration of a chemical peel can vary depending on the type and depth of the peel being performed. Generally, the procedure itself typically takes about 30 to 45 minutes. However, additional time may be needed for pre-peel preparation and post-peel care instructions.

Are chemical peels painful?

During the chemical peel, you may experience a slight tingling or stinging sensation as the solution is applied to the skin. However, discomfort is typically minimal.

Is there any downtime associated with chemical peels?

While downtime can vary depending on the depth of the peel, PCA SKIN chemical peels typically have minimal downtime compared to more aggressive peel options. After the treatment, you may experience some redness, flaking, and mild irritation, which usually subsides within a few days to a week. It’s essential to follow post-peel care instructions provided by your skincare professional to ensure optimal results and minimize any potential side effects.

How many chemical peel treatments are needed to see results?

The number of chemical peels needed to see results can vary depending on several factors, including the severity of the skin concern being addressed, the type of peel used, and individual skin characteristics. While some individuals may notice improvements after a single treatment, a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart is often recommended for optimal results. Your skincare provider will recommend a treatment plan tailored to your specific needs

Are chemical peels suitable for all skin types?

Chemical peels can be customized for various skin types, including sensitive skin, oily skin, dry skin, and combination skin. However, it’s essential to consult our skincare providers to determine the most appropriate peel for your skin type.

Can chemical peels be performed on all areas of the body?

While chemical peels are commonly performed on the face, they can also be used to treat other areas of the body, such as the neck, chest, hands, and back. These treatments can help improve skin texture, tone, and overall appearance in areas prone to sun damage.

How should I care for my skin after a chemical peel?

After a chemical peel, it’s essential to follow post-peel care instructions provided by your skincare professional to ensure optimal results and minimize any potential side effects. This typically includes using gentle cleansers and moisturizers, avoiding sun exposure, wearing sunscreen daily, and avoiding harsh skincare products or procedures that could irritate the skin. Additionally, your skincare professional may recommend specific products or treatments to support the healing process and maintain the results of your peel.

How soon can I wear makeup after a chemical peel?

After a chemical peel, it’s essential to allow your skin time to heal before applying makeup. In general, it’s recommended to wait at least 24 to 48 hours before applying makeup to allow the skin to recover fully. Opt for gentle, non-irritating makeup products to avoid irritation.
