Many people are looking for a simple way to improve their skin without surgery or a facelift. Aging and sun-damaged skin may develop redness, blemishes, facial veins and pigment, deep wrinkles, cancerous or precancerous lesions, or spotting. This procedure uses a chemical solution, usually an acid, to ‘peel’ away from the top layers of the epidermis to improve conditions such as acne, irregular pigmentation, or wrinkles. Chemical peels have been in use for several years and are a highly popular way to improve the texture and look of skin. Over half a million people have a session performed each year. There are many peels available, each with its unique benefits.
A chemical peel made from moisturizers. A moisturizing chemical peel is a perfect peel using ingredients that hydrate and gently exfoliate.
This peel is an in-office, 2-step process that is virtually painless and has very little downtime. Following the 30-minute treatment, your skin plumps and hydrates for the coming days, resulting in soft, smooth, and glowing skin.
PCA Skin® Chemical Peels
Traditional chemical peels are often associated with discomfort and extensive recoveries. PCA Skin® has designed chemical peels that produce dramatic results without the discomfort and downtime associated with other facial peels. This results in smoother, more radiant skin and a rejuvenated appearance. PCA Skin® professional treatments are formulated to preserve, promote and protect healthy skin, regardless of whether the patient sees visible exfoliation following the treatment. Vagotis Skin Center offers three different PCA Skin® peels to address various skin types and conditions.
PCA Skin® Sensi Peel
The Sensi Peel Exfoliating Treatment is a gentle peel designed for ethnic skin and other sensitive skin types. This peel can improve sun damage and other hyperpigmentation problems. It can also significantly improve the redness and inflammation associated with rosacea. The Sensi Peel strengthens and brightens the skin while providing anti-inflammatory, anti-acne, and antibacterial action. This is also a perfect introductory peel.
PCA Skin® Ultra Peel
The Ultra Peel Exfoliating Treatment is ideal for mature, dehydrated skin. It can improve smokers' skin, pigment disorders, sun damage, and acne. This peel is appropriate for many skin types and conditions. It is particularly beneficial in treating sensitive skin because only a mild tingling sensation occurs during the treatment. Depending on the amount of layer applied, this peel can produce a moderate to the aggressive level of exfoliation, producing plumper, softer, and more hydrated skin.
PCA Skin® Peel with Hydroquinone
The PCA Skin® Peel with Hydroquinone is an enhanced Jessner's formula for those who want an even skin tone and have no sensitivity to hydroquinone. It will help to quickly lighten pigment discolorations of any kind. It is an excellent treatment for melasma and sun-damaged skin. In addition, this peel helps inhibit active acne and correct post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from acne.
