PCA Skin® Chemical Peels


What is it, and why do you want it?


Peels are a great way to improve clarity, tone and skin texture.  Peels will enhance skin glow and radiance and restore a more youthful appearance. Visible improvement is possible after one treatment with optimal results after a series of six treatments in conjunction with a PCA Skin home care routine. The renewal process stimulates collagen production, lightens pigmentation, acne, and melasma. 


The Treatment


We offer a wide range of peels from mild enzymatic peels, to Jessners, TCA and Retinol peels.  We offer these in all different combination depending on your skin's needs.  If you are new to peels, we will have a consult prior to your treatment to make sure you are receiving the perfect treatment tailored to YOU!


The Expectations


Possible light peeling is expected for the next 4-6 days as layers of dead skin cells are shedding, only to reveal beautiful, smooth skin.  Most of our peels work at a cellular level, meaning very little peeling is actually visible on the skin's surface. We have found that most peeling starts on day 2 or 3 and will last for 3-4 days. You may also experience tightness and some mild sensitivity during this time.


The Follow Through


For acne prone skin, peels are recommended every 2 weeks.  For pigment/melasma skin conditions, and for those treating fine lines and wrinkles we recommend we see you every 3 weeks for peels. For rosacea and routine skin maintenance, we recommend monthly treatments.



PCA Skin® 4% Pure Retinol Peel


What is it, and why do you want it?

A blend of 4% pure retinol and anti-oxidants, PCA Skin®’s first pure retinoid peel improves skin texture, brightens and evens skin tone and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles through accelerated cellular turnover.

What is retinol?

A first generation retinoid, retinol, also known as vitamin A1, is the gold standard ingredient in skin care. By increasing the turnover of surface cells, retinol improves the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, smooths and evens skin texture, reduces the size of pores and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The Treatment

The 4% Pure Retinol Peel is a very gentle treatment. Most clients will feel very little to no sensitivity during product application. This peel does not have the tingling (stinging) sensation of a traditional PCA Peel®. Rather, you may experience a soothing sensation.

The Expectations


Light to medium peeling is expected for the next 4-6 days as layers of dead skin cells are shedding, only to reveal beautiful, smooth skin. We have found that most peeling starts on day 2 or 3 and will last for 3-4 days. You will also experience tightness and some mild sensitivity during this time.

The Follow Through


You can help enhance the overall outcome of the treatment by committing to using only the Post Procedure Kit, provided with each treatment, for 3-5 days post-peel. The after care products in your Post Procedure Kit will help protect and soothe the skin post-treatment.
