A chemical peel is a professional treatment using products designed to improve and enhance the skins appearance. A chemical peel can help reduce the depth of surface lines, smooth and soften rough skin texture, treat skin discoloration and redness, and assist in clearing acne/blemished skin. The naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), retinol and trichloroacetic acid (TCA) found in PCA SKIN professional products loosen dead cells from the skins surface, revealing new, healthy cells. The results are smooth, radiant, and glowing skin.
Chemical Peels can maintain healthy youthful skin and control conditions such as:
Acne, Milia and Black Heads: Acne is the most common skin condition in humans. Acne tends to appear in areas where there are more oil glands present such as the face, scalp, chest, back and neck. Treatments vary according to the type of acne.
Aging (intrinsic and extrinsic): Intrinsic aging is due to age and genetics. Facial wrinkling, expression lines and drier, more sensitive skin may be a result of intrinsic aging. Extrinsic aging includes the more controllable factors of aging such as exposure to the sun and/or pollutants which cause a breakdown of the skins structure, leading to discoloration, wrinkles, skin growths and even cancer.
Hyperpigmentation (skin discoloration): Hyperpigmentation is caused by sun damage, or hormone fluctuations due to pregnancy or menopause, and skin injuries such as acne scarring. Certain skin types can also be more susceptible to hyperpigmentation.
Rosacea: Rosacea is the persistent redness and/or breakouts mid face, affecting the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. Although there is no cure yet, we can control rosacea.
