WHAT IS A PCA CHEMICAL PEEL?
A PCA chemical peel is actually one of a series of chemical peels. Chemical peels are one of the more common cosmetic procedures for making skin look healthier and removing blemishes. PCA peels are newer and less harsh than traditional chemical peels. PCA peels are progressive, in that they aren’t one-treatment peels. You get them at regular intervals to get the full effect, giving the skin a chance to heal and recuperate between sessions. This is another way in which the newer chemical peels are beneficial. Instead of peeling heavily at once, they accommodate a busy lifestyle by making sure you won’t feel self-conscious about your looks during treatment or have to put up with serious “down time.”
WHAT OTHER BENEFITS DO PCA PEELS OFFER?
PCA peels will not only make your skin look healthier by brightening up dull skin and removing the top layer of dead skin cells, but they’ll leave your face feeling revitalized and rejuvenated. They decrease acne, even out skin tone, allow your skin to breathe and allow for better penetration of skin care products. They also control oil production, meaning you’ll have fewer breakouts as you continue treatment.
Your skin specialist will work with you to recommend the best type of peel for your skin type and issues. There are many types of PCA peels available for targeting different skin conditions, and all of them can help you look younger and healthier.
