All about PCA Peels
A PCA peel is one in a series of chemical peels. Chemical peels are a cosmetic treatment for making skin look healthier and remove blemishes. These can help you reach your skincare goals.
PCA peels have a myriad of benefits which include:
1. PCA - Light to Medium - depth peelsCreated using essential ingredients such as alpha and beta hydroxyl acids, these chemical peels loosen dead, old cells from the skin's surface and reveal healthy, new cells.
2. PCA Peel – without HydroquinoneThis is for sensitive skin types and anyone that’s allergic to hydroquinone. It helps unclog pores, rejuvenate skin and clear acne. It is also a great choice for fixing pigment discolorations and maintaining even pigmentation for people sensitive to hydroqquinone.
3. PCA Peel – with HydroquinoneThis peel is for people who are not sensitive to hydroquinone and want an even skin tone. It helps quickly tighten pigment discolorations such as actinic damage. It inhibits acne and corrects post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation caused by acne.
4. PCA Peel – with Resorcinol & HydroquinoneThis evens skin tone and provides exfoliation for thicker, oiler and more resilient skin types. It is effective on thickened and sun damaged skin. It is perfect for those with active or cystic skin.
Reasons to get a PCA Peel
Apart from the obvious benefits, there are other reasons to get a PCA peel. These include:
You will need to modify your lifestyle a bit after getting a PCA peel to avoid irritation. Avoid excessive exercising to lessen sweat. Don’t pick at or scrub your face and avoid excessive heat sources.
The downtime for PCA peels is slightly high, given that you cannot exfoliate for up to 10 days after the treatment and you have to avoid the sun for 2 weeks.
Your dermatologist can recommend the best kind of PCA peel for your skin type.
