Chemical Peel Treatment Types
Enhanced Jessner’s Treatments
These innovative and proven light-to-medium depth peel formulas effectively exfoliate with blends of lactic, citric and salicylic acids and resorcinol, while bleaching and inhibiting pigment production with kojic acid and hydroquinone (where indicated). These peels help repair and reduce breakouts, control oil, soften lines and provide a more even, smoother skin texture.
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels are often thought of as very aggressive and producing substantial discomfort. PCA Professional™ TCA peels are very different from the standard. Our TCA solutions are blends formulated with many ingredients including lactic acid, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), plumping phytohormones and kojic and azelaic acids to produce dramatic results without the discomfort and downtime associated with traditional TCA peels.
The cream consistency of PCA SKIN’s retinol treatments creates an occlusive barrier that allows the vitamins, antioxidants and other actives in these rich treatments to better absorb into the skin for maximum benefits.
Salicylic Acid Treatments
The keratolytic action of these treatments helps to smooth surface texture, clear blocked follicles and reduce the incidence of breakouts.
We use these treatments to keep skin free of pollutants and toxins, leading to a brighter and clearer complexion.
IPL Photo facial treatments utilize the latest advances in laser technology to help improve everything from the appearance of photo-aged skin, sun damaged skin to rosacea, age spots, premature wrinkles, pigment problems on the face, neck and chest. Photo facial (aka photofacial or photo facial) treatments center around the patented Intense Pulsed Light system, which penetrates deep below the skin’s surface to help start the production of new collagen and other connective tissues. A broad spectrum of light is transmitted through a small, smooth, transparent hand piece which is gently placed over the skin. Cut-off filters in the hand piece change the wavelength range allowing it to be optimized for different applications and skin types. The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed by either the blood when treating vascular lesions or the melanin when treating pigmented lesions damaging them. The body’s natural processes then remove the injured tissue giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance.
