Restore a Look of Youthful Vitality to Your Skin
Time, environmental factors, the sun and natural aging all tend to wreak havoc on our complexion as the year’s pass. As we get older, skin gets dryer, thinner and loses its plump, radiant appearance. Exposure to the elements and the loss of collagen also causes wrinkles, skin laxity and gives the skin a dull, rough appearance and texture.
Your customized Anti-aging Facial treatment will begin with a comprehensive skin analysis to determine your skin type and which therapies will benefit you the most. There are a variety of age-related issues that mature skin may exhibit, including dryness, age spots, broken capillaries, fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, dull appearance, loss of vibrancy and more.

Still, Have Questions?
A Chemical Peel is a topically applied liquid acid used to induce exfoliation and regeneration of certain layers of skin.
A customized combination of ingredients is applied to your skin. The process causes the skin to dry and gradually exfoliate over the next several days. There are three Chemical Peel intensities that penetrate and revitalize different depths of skin. The result is rejuvenated skin that is healthier and more youthful looking.
In addition to your face, a Chemical Peel can be performed on areas including:
On average, 4-6 Chemical Peel sessions, spaced two to four weeks apart, produce the best results. Severe skin conditions such as acne scarring or dark spots may require more sessions. Most clients continue a once-a-month maintenance program to sustain the results.
Most people will notice a difference in their skin after one to three sessions. Improvements are enhanced cumulatively with each session. For correction a series of six or more treatments may be necessary. Chemical peels are safe as a monthly maintenance treatment and may be combined with other treatments like microdermabrasion or photofacials to enhance skin rejuvenation and results.
Clients have described the sensation of a Chemical Peel to be similar to a warm, tingling feeling much like a sunburn. The sensation will diminish after a few minutes. Different degrees of intensity are adjusted to match your preference and comfort level.
Yes, a Chemical Peel is safe, non-invasive and can be performed on all skin types and colors. Our aestheticians have undergone thorough training and has extensive experience working with Chemical Peels to ensure effective and safe results.
This depends on the intensity of the Chemical Peel. There are three Intensity levels; superficial, medium and deep.
- Superficial peel – This peel is designed to help smooth rough, dry skin, and even out skin tone. The recovery is generally rapid and usually consists of minor flaking.
- Medium peel – Medium peels contain a higher concentration of acids. Immediately after treatment, the skin has a red appearance and is occasionally accompanied by swelling. Within a day, the skin turns brown and after three or four days begin the peeling process.
- Deep peel – The skin is red and can result in some swelling and blistering. A crust may form and the skin will turn brown just prior to peeling. Many layers of the skin will peel over one to two weeks. Temporarily, the new skin will have the color and sensation of a sunburn, which will gradually fade to your normal skin color.
Any side effects associated with Chemical Peels are rare and usually temporary. Potential side effects include:
- Prolonged redness
- Hyperpigmentation (darker skin pigment)
- Small whiteheads (Milia)
- Superficial, local infection
Our skin care professional have be trained on each of the PCA Professional™ Products. This training will allow them to not only choose a treatment designed for your skin type, but customize a treatment, addressing your personal skin care needs.
The level of discomfort experienced depends on the treatment. Most PCA Professional™ chemical peels are gentle and create little or no burning or stinging sensation in the skin. Dramatic wrinkling, sun damage or acne scars may require a deeper peel, which may cause moderate stinging for a few minutes. More dramatic results can be expected from a deeper peel, however, deep peels are not necessary for most skin types and conditions. PCA’s philosophy of taking a low-dose approach means our superficial chemical peels create minimal discomfort and produce beautiful and immediate results for most patients.
Yes, but only if they are compliant with using sunscreen protection every day. Sunbathing should be avoided directly following treatment and while the skin is peeling. If you are getting peels to lighten the skin or eliminate brown spots (hyperpigmentation), it is imperative to use a product to help control the overproduction of melanin, such as Vitelle’s Ferulic Acid, Apple Stem Cell Serums and PCAs Pigment Gel (Hydroquinone or Hydroquinone Free) along with an SPF and avoid unnecessary sun exposure to reduce further hyperpigmentation.
Dry skin is partially the result of dead cell buildup, which actually hinders natural exfoliation as well as the absorption and penetration of vitamins and nutrients. Having a PCA Professional™ chemical peel will remove surface buildup, hydrate the skin and give it a plumper, “thicker” appearance. The use of topical vitamin C and peptide products in a treatment, as well as in your daily care regimen will help build collagen in the skin, thus making it stronger and more durable.
