Chemical Peels in Bluffton, SC

WHAT ARE PCA CHEMICAL PEELS?

Chemical peels are one of the more common cosmetic procedures for making skin look healthier and removing blemishes. In addition, PCA peels are progressive in that they aren’t one-treatment peels. Instead, you get them at regular intervals to get the full effect, giving the skin a chance to heal and recuperate between sessions; another way in which the newer chemical peels are beneficial. 

Instead of peeling heavily at once, they accommodate a busy lifestyle by ensuring you won’t feel self-conscious about your looks during treatment or have to put up with serious “downtime.”

WHAT DOES A PCA PEEL TREAT?

Blemishes - Light scars, acne scars, and skin discolorations from rosacea are easily treatable with PCA peels.

Aging and Sun Damage  - Aging can cause skin discolorations, including brown spots (age spots) and redness. PCA peels can minimize the appearance of these marks while making your skin look younger and healthier.

Hyperpigmentation - PCA peels can also treat forms of hyperpigmentation from skin damage, aging, or dermatological conditions.

Oily Skin - Peels can manage your oily skin and are customizable to manage dry patches and combination skin. In addition, because the process is less harsh than traditional chemical peels, there is less risk of side effects from handling both of these conditions simultaneously.

Enlarged Pores - Enlarged pores can make you look older and make your skin look less healthy and radiant. PCA peels can help shrink pores and minimize their appearance.

SO WHAT IS THE HEALING PROCESS ON PCA PEELS?

You will notice some skin flaking about 3-5 days after treatment. Your skin might feel dry or tight. Moisturize as per your dermatologist’s recommendation several times throughout the day, and avoid exfoliating for ten days after your peel. 

 

Here are some important considerations for the healing process:

  • Don’t pick or pull at flaking skin, as this could lead to an infection or scarring.

  • You should use sunblock after getting a skin peel and avoid sun exposure for up to two weeks. 

  • You should avoid working out, sweating, or swimming for up to 48 hours after a peel.

  • You should also avoid the tanning bed for three weeks.

Talk to your dermatologist about other precautions and activities you should avoid after a peel.

WHAT OTHER BENEFITS DO PCA CHEMICAL PEELS OFFER?

A PCA chemical peel will make your skin look healthier by brightening up dull skin and removing the top layer of dead skin cells, but they’ll also leave your face feeling revitalized and rejuvenated. Additionally, they decrease acne, even out skin tone, allow your skin to breathe, and allow for better penetration of skincare products. They also control oil production, meaning you’ll have fewer breakouts as you continue treatment.

There’s little to no downtime involved, and you can go about your day immediately after it’s applied.

While we recommend a series of peels, improvements (like your skin brightening and developing a healthy glow) are usually visible after one treatment.

HOW DOES THE CHEMICAL PEEL PROCESS WORK?

The peel solution is customized to address your unique concerns and skin type. 

  1. On the day of your procedure, we first clean your skin. 

  2. Then we evenly apply the chemical solutions.

  3. Superficial PCA skin peels are applied in layers and left on your skin. They’re not timed and removed like deeper chemical peels. Instead, the strength of a superficial PCA peel is controlled by the number of layers applied.

  4. Then we will apply a calming topical lotion with broad-spectrum SPF protection on top of your final layer.

  5. After your peel, we will send you home with the PCA post peel kit and give instructions on how to care for your skin immediately after the peel and in the days following.
