Chemical Peels

Don't let the word "peel" scare you. Our esthetician, Shanna, uses PCA Skin professional products, which are scientifically formulated to gently stimulate, firm and tighten skin. PCA Skin treatments are carefully blended to remove dull, damaged surface layers without the downtime often associated with chemical peels. These treatments increase the natural skin cell turnover resulting in healthy, beautiful skin. These superficial peels will result in little to no downtime. Most clients find it unnecessary to apply makeup, as the skin will be smooth, dewy and radiant following your treatment. Progressive, not aggressive is the philosophy.

PCA chemical peels are designed to enhance the skin’s complexion and texture, using different blends of lactic, citric, salicylic, glycolic, kojic, ascorbic and azelaic acids along with retinol, polyphenols, antioxidants and vitamins. This allows our Certified PCA Aesthetician the ability to manage and treat a wider range of skin conditions. These innovative treatments are the solution for acne, sun damage, dry or red skin and aging skin. They are formulated to treat a variety of skin types including the most sensitive of skin. PCA Peels are safe and highly effective, result driven treatments, requiring little to no recovery time.

Chemical Peel preparation and tips

Our Peels and Treatments include cleansing, application of one to three peel layers, corrective serum and moisturizing sunscreen.

If you purchase a package of peels, we suggest buying the full-size products.

We recommend regular monthly or bi-weekly treatments to achieve the best results.

Sensi Peel (TCA & Lactic)

This treatment also provides anti-inflammatory, anti-acne and antibacterial action, making it an excellent choice for helping to calm rosacea, as redness and inflammation can subside substantially after treatment. Mild to very mild exfoliation will be experienced. Results will be smooth, dewy and radiant skin. Can be performed every two weeks. (Bi -weekly)
