Dr. Halaas chose to utilize PCA Skin’s line of chemical peels to treat her patients because they share a similar philosophy on skincare. PCA skin has a longstanding philosophy of taking a low-dose approach, which means these superficial chemical peels create minimal discomfort, no downtime, and produce beautiful and immediate results. You will leave the office with skin that is glowing, and dewy, and fresh.
A regular program of light peels will help repair and restore your skin to its beautiful natural state. Superficial chemical peels stimulate the exfoliation process, removing the build-up of dead skin cells that can clog pores and leave skin looking dull and lifeless. These are not aggressive peels, so the results will gradually accumulate over several months. These advanced skin solutions combine exfoliating acids, pigment inhibitors and skin strengthening agents to provide maximum benefits, minimal discomfort and no downtime.
Exfoliates dead skin, stimulates new skin cell production and tightens skin.
Chemical peels significantly increase the effectiveness of your skincare products by removing the top layer of dead skin cells, enabling better absorption of the key ingredients (vitamins, antioxidants, moisturizers) present in your skin care regimen.
These innovative and proven superficial 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 fine lines and provide a more even, smoother skin texture.
PCA Peel® with Hydroquinone and Resorcinol: This solution combines the lightening and brightening power of hydroquinone, kojic acid and lactic acid with strengthening and exfoliating agents to leave the skin smooth and clear.
Most appropriate for achieving dramatic improvement in hyperpigmentation, acne, surface texture issues, and for thicker, more resilient skin types.
PCA Peel® with Hydroquinone: This solution provides all of the lightening and strengthening power of our hydroquinone and resorcinol formula, but with slightly less surface irritation.
Appropriate for all skin types for help with acne, hyperpigmentation.
PCA Peel® Hydroquinone Free: Removing the hydroquinone from this solution provides an effective option for more sensitive skin and those with hydroquinone allergies. This more gentle solution works to help clear acne while improving hyperpigmentation and other signs of sun damage.
