Over the years, harmful external forces like pollutants and UV radiation can leave your skin looking dull and dreary. Fortunately, you can rejuvenate damaged skin with a PCA Skin® chemical peel at UCI Plastic Surgery. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about this type of peel and what it can do for you.
What Do PCA Skin Chemical Peels Do?
Professional PCA Skin chemical peels are an excellent way to rejuvenate damaged or aging skin. These highly effective chemical solutions work to exfoliate dead skin, allowing fresh, healthy cells to shine through. PCA Skin® chemical peels also stimulate new cell production as well as tighten the skin, all while allowing for better absorption of those expensive skincare products in your medicine cabinet. What’s more, these peels promote the reduction of surface bacteria, resulting in fewer breakouts for those who suffer with acne.
Is a PCA Skin Chemical Peel Right for Me?
PCA Skin chemical peels are safe for use on all skin types. With on-going monthly treatments, these powerful peels can improve the appearance of aging skin and brighten a dull, lifeless complexion. Common concerns that can be addressed include wrinkles and fine lines, rosacea, melasma, sun damage, skin laxity, enlarged pores, uneven texture and tone, and acne symptoms and scarring.
However, the very best way to find out if a PCA Skin chemical peel is right for you is to schedule a personal consultation with our experienced team. PCA-certified professionals are trained to pinpoint what treatment will provide you with the greatest benefit based on your personal needs and goals, and your PCA Skin chemical peel will be even more effective with pre- and post-treatment care, preparing your skin beforehand and delivering key nutrients after the procedure.
How Do I Prepare for my PCA Skin Chemical Peel?
Getting ready for your PCA Skin chemical peel is easy. You should arrive at your appointment without any makeup on. We also advise that you wear a top that leaves your face and neck exposed. You should also try to avoid direct sun exposure leading up to your session, and always wear a protective broadband sunscreen when outdoors.
What is a PCA Chemical Peel Treatment Like?
A PCA Skin chemical peel at UCI Plastic Surgery is a quick procedure. After a careful evaluation of your unique skin issues and personal goals, one of our experienced aestheticians will recommend the proper treatment that will provide you with the most effective and restorative results. The entire process typically only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. We thoroughly clean your face with a gentle cleanser prior to treatment, then we apply the chemical peel solution to the targeted areas of your face. Some patients report feeling a warm or slight stinging sensation as the chemicals work to revitalize your skin. Next, we apply a hydrating lotion to moisturize your skin and a layer of SPF sunscreen to protect your freshly treated face.
