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 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.
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.
