CHEMICAL PEELS- PCA SKIN

WHAT IS A PERFECTING PEEL?

A chemical resurfacing treatment, ideal for those with aging, discoloured, breakout prone and senstive skin. This gentle peel will improve surface texture and fine lines, while helping to promote even skin tone.

WHAT IS A 4 & 6% PURE RETINOL PEEL?

This pure retinol peel provides dramatic and rapid rejuvenation of the skin. Skin is visibly smoother, brighter and more evenly toned. An ideal peel for aging skin, pigmented disorders, smokers' skin, acne scarring and active acne. More suitable for people with normal to resilient skin.

DOES IT HURT?

The level of discomfort depends on the treatment. Most PCA peels chemical peels are gentle and create minimal to stinging sensations in the skin. Dramatic wrinkling, sun damage or acne scars may require a deeper peel, which may cause moderate stinging for a few minutes.

PCA Skin’s superficial peels produce beautiful and immediate results with minimal discomfort for the majority of patients.
