PCA Chemical Peels

What are PCA Chemical Peels?

PCA Chemical Peels are a line of exfoliating solutions made by PCA SKIN, a leader in chemical peels. Each year, more than one million PCA SKIN peels are performed across the globe.

Formulated for all skin types, the PCA chemical peels can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or lessen the signs of acne and skin discoloration. Trained aestheticians like Dr. Michelle Reyes at The Med Spot administer these peels.

The unique formulas used in PCA chemical peels help increase the skin’s cell turnover rate, bringing new skin cells to the surface, reducing signs of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and clearing breakouts.

The Med Spot has four different PCA chemical peels available to treat skin conditions.

PCA Peel with Hydroquinone

The PCA Peel with Hydroquinone is an enhanced Jessner’s Peel that targets the light-to-medium depth of the skin to soften fine lines and encourage a clear complexion. Jessner peels work by removing the top layers of the skin to reveal the smoother skin underneath. The active ingredients in this peel include the exfoliates lactic acid, salicylic acid, and citric acid. Hydroquinone and kojic acid are added to help lighten hyperpigmentation and even skin tone.

Sensi Peel

The Sensi Peel is a gentle TCA peel that works especially well for sensitive skin. This peel has just 6% trichloroacetic acid (TCA) along with kojic acid, azelaic acid, arbutin, and plant hormones to help brighten the skin and even out skin tone.

Ultra Peel

The Ultra Peel is also a TCA peel that includes more TCA solution (10%) enabling it to penetrate into the medium depth layers of your skin. Its special formula is perfect for mature skin to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, while also clearing your complexion and evening out skin tone. Other key ingredients include lactic acid, azelaic acid, and kojic acid.

6% Pure Retinol Peel

Retinol is a derivative of vitamin A that is one of the most effective ingredients in skincare to increase cell turnover, improve skin tone, and clear blemishes. Once applied, the PCA SKIN 6% Pure Retinol Peel gradually and gently peels away the dead surface skin cells to reveal the firm, smooth, glowing skin underneath. Peeling can take up to seven to 10 days. This peel also includes antioxidants like vitamin E, marigold flower extract, silybum marianum fruit extract, and olive fruit oil to soothe and rejuvenate your skin.

How Do PCA Chemical Peels Work?

Your skin is your body’s largest organ. It’s made up of two layers. The epidermis is the outer layer constructed of four layers. It helps regulate your body temperature and keeps moisture in and infection out.

Under the epidermis is the dermis, an inner layer composed of connective tissue. The dermis has elasticity and strength to help your skin resist different stressors. Stressors can be internal such as diet, hydration, and hormones, or environmental such as pollution, the sun, wind, or freezing temperatures.

PCA chemical peels like the 6% Pure Retinol Peel, Sensi Peel, Ultra Peel, and PCA Peel with Hydroquinone can help remove dead cells on the skin’s surface to reveal the smooth, glowing layer of skin underneath.

What PCA Chemical Peels Can Do For You

PCA Chemical Peels offer a great way to rejuvenate the look of the skin on your face, neck, or hands. These treatments work as exfoliants to remove the tired outer layer of your skin and reveal the fresh, youthful-looking skin below.

The benefits of the PCA Chemical Peels are:

Reducing wrinkles and fine lines – Eliminating dead skin cells and resurfacing your skin with a PCA SKIN chemical peel is also an effective way to smooth fine lines and wrinkles that appear as you age.

Reducing the appearance of scars and signs of acne – Acne can wreak havoc on your skin. Besides the unsightly bumps and redness caused by acne, bad cases of acne can also leave behind scars on your skin. Chemical peels like the PCA SKIN treatments can both get rid of your acne and clear up the scars it leaves behind.

Evening out skin tone – Skin discoloration, known as melasma, can be caused by several factors. Sun exposure, hormone changes, skin irritation, and genetics can all play a part in the dark patches on your skin. A PCA SKIN chemical peel can penetrate the layers of your skin, remove the affected areas, and leave you with a nice even skin tone.

Why PCA Chemical Peels Are Better Than The Alternatives

Over-the-counter skin care products can’t get the kind of results you can get with medical-grade skincare like PCA chemical peels, especially when it comes to smoothing out wrinkles and balancing skin tone.

Medical grade chemical peels like PCA SKIN products target certain needs with active ingredients that are more concentrated than any product you can get over the counter. The products are also backed up by clinical evidence that the products do what they claim.

Because of their strength, PCA SKIN chemical peels must be administered by a professional aesthetician. Professional aestheticians like Dr. Michelle Reyes have expertise in treating skin concerns and getting results.
