What is the first thing you think of when you hear “chemical peel”? I think of the episode of ‘Sex in the City’ where, after a chemical peel, Samatha has to walk around with a black veil covering her face, so she doesn’t scare people! Thankfully this is not the case with peels anymore. Skincare has come a long way, and peels are no exception.
Peels contain many ingredients that protect, nourish and rejuvenate the skin. Their use is multifaceted and not just a form of deep exfoliation anymore.
At Babyface we use PCA peels. PCA Skincare was the first company to develop and market the modified and enhanced Jessner’s peel, a solution that combines lactic acid, salicylic acid, kojic acid, citric acid, and resorcinol. This revolutionary reformulation provides safer application, a more comfortable treatment, and increased skin benefits.
PCA peels will help rejuvenate and improve breakout-prone skin’s appearance while promoting an even, bright skin tone. You will see the following:
- improved surface texture
- brighter skin
- A reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and
- Reduced dark spots and other forms of discoloration
If you’re looking for a way to reduce blemishes, improve the appearance of wrinkles, and even out your skin tone, you may want to consider the benefits of a PCA Peel. A PCA Peel is an advanced method of chemical peel that can help rejuvenate your skin with minimal recovery time. Let’s look at what it is and how it works.
A PCA Peel is a type of chemical peel that uses Lactic acid, Salicylic, Citric Acid and Kojic Acid to exfoliate the top layer of skin cells. This process helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes on the face. It can also help improve uneven skin tones by lightening areas of pigmentation.
The peeling solution is applied directly to the face in several layers depending on the individual’s needs. The application process usually takes anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour. Afterward, patients may experience slight redness which generally fades within 1-2 hours.
The primary benefit of a PCA Peel is that it can provide dramatic results quickly with minimal downtime. Additionally, because this type of peel does not penetrate as deeply into the skin as other peels it has fewer side effects. It also helps stimulate collagen production, which helps plump up wrinkles and make them less noticeable over time. Finally, this type of peel can be used on all body parts, including the face, neck, chest, and hands, making it suitable for treating multiple areas simultaneously.
A peel can be added to any facial or experienced on its own. It is an excellent way to uncover beautiful, fresh and youthful skin. If you are looking for dramatic results without significant downtime, a PCA Peel may be right for you! It provides fast results with minimal side effects while stimulating collagen production so you can have younger-looking skin without going under the knife!
