Chemical Peel 101

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.

What do peels improve?

Chemical peels are safe and effective in improving and preventing most skin conditions: aging, acne, discoloration, sensitive skin/rosacea.

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 of 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. 

When do I get a peel? 

Chemical peels are usually recommended once a month, paralleling that skin's natural 28- day cell turnover process for the best results. Depending on your skin concern, your aesthetician 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.
