Product Knowledge

Pretreatment Protocols for Chemical Peels

These protocols are for specially designed peels, such as the Modified Jessner, TCA, and Salicylic and Retinol Blends. PCA Peels soften the depth of surface lines around the eyes and nasolabial folds, help clear acne, smooth skin texture, and even skin tone, especially oily skin. These peels combine alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) with kojic acid (with or without hydroquinone) with a standard peel solution to address hyperpigmentation from sun damage, inflammation, and hormonal changes. AHA and tyrosinase inhibitors suppress the enzyme tyrosinase to discourage the skin from creating hyperpigmentation. Hydroquinone is optional in these formulas and is FDA-approved to lighten skin.

As your esthetician, I will choose the appropriate peel for your skin type, such as hyperpigmentation, acne, sensitive skin, rosacea, or aging skin. Please note that the pricing may vary depending on the number of peel layers added to the treatment.

Peels are used to effectively increase cell turnover, brighten skin tone, and clarify active acne. You may experience a little peeling of the dead skin layer, but the results will be wonderful.

Amazing Results

PCA Skin's superficial peels result in little to no downtime, but create dramatic and visible results. Treatment may cause slight redness, tightness, peeling, flaking, or temporary dryness. Most patients find it unnecessary to apply makeup, as the skin will be smooth, dewy, and radiant following the treatment. If you would like to apply makeup, allow approximately 15 minutes for the pH of the skin to stabilize before applying foundation. 

Things to Consider Before Making Your Appointment

It is recommended that you take the following into consideration:

Pregnancy - If you are lactating, pregnant, or may be pregnant, only an Oxygenating Trio or Detox Gel deep-pore treatment is appropriate. Consult your OB/GYN before receiving treatment.
Tanning Beds - Do not go to a tanning bed two weeks prior to treatment.
Sun Exposure - It is recommended that extended sun exposure be avoided, especially 10 days prior to treatment.

Prescriptions - It is recommended to delay use of tretinoin, Retin-A, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, Epiduo, Ziana, and high percentages of AHA-BHA products for approximately five days prior to treatment. Consult your physician before temporarily discontinuing use of any prescription. If you are using Accutane, it is recommended that you should not have a peel treatment within the last eight months after you have stopped taking the medication.
