Most Commonly Asked Questions
Q. How much downtime is expected with a skin peel?
A. There is no downtime whatsoever with our chemical peels. You can actually receive a peel on your lunch hour and return to work.
Q.When will I start “peelings”, for how long and how much?
A. Everyone’s experience will be different. However, on an average, you will see flaking by day two or three following the treatment. It is possible to see flaking for up to five or six days. With all peels, only light to medium exfoliation will be experienced.
Q. How irritating is a skin peel?
A. PCA peels are only slightly irritating. You may experience mild burning or stinging, which is transient.
Q. Can a person who is in the sun a lot receive a skin peel?
A. Yes, only if they are compliant with using sunscreen protection.
Q. What is the difference between PCA skin peels and glycolic peels?
A. Glycolic acid will dehydrate skin and make pores larger after extended use. PCA uses lactic and citric acids which are skin-friendly because they are natural constituents of your skin. Our peels are unique because they are moisturizing and hydrating and leave your skin fresh, soft and supple.
After your Appointment
After receiving your chemical peel, you may experience some light flaking in a few localized areas for up to five days and slight redness for one to twelve hours. Although you may or may not actually “peel” during the first one or two treatments, you will probably experience slight exfoliation and your skin will feel tight and pulled.
