Peel solution exfoliates dead skin cells – healthy cells rise to surface
PCA Peel Information and Instructions
PCA SKIN® is a respected manufacturer of professional skin treatment products in the USA. This company has assembled a group of effective treatment protocols for four common skin conditions. PCA Peels are used for treating AGING SKIN, HYPERPIGMENTATION, ACNE, and ROSACEA.
These peels incorporate a progressive treatment approach, blending different ingredients to decrease potential irritation, and layering on the skin to achieve the optimum depth of treatment. These products are left on the face, and patients are not to rinse or wash them off for a minimum of four hours. Preferably, treatments remain on the face overnight. Applying water or ice before four hours’ time will severely irritate the skin, and cause blistering.
Patients are provided with an after-care kit containing a face wash, toner, moisturizer, and sunscreen. This will be enough for 5 to 7 days of daily home use, after which patients may resume their prior skin care routine.
This office can provide home care products for each skin condition, and the daily use of at least one product appropriate for that condition is strongly recommended to achieve desired results. Professional treatments performed at the Clinic can only affect change to a certain degree. Daily use of appropriate ingredients can boost that change up to 90%.
Peeling of the dead skin layers during the week after treatment is only a possible side effect, not a guaranteed result. It is very important to use the provided products daily, and to avoid picking at, or pulling off, any flaking skin.
For two days after a peel, patients should stay cool. This means no tanning, no hot water, swimming, exercising or sweating. No use of ice on the treated skin, either. If these precautions are ignored, water blisters can form. In the event that blisters arise, they will subside in 24 to 48 hours, and typically do not cause long term side effects or scarring. They must not be popped, drained or peeled. These instructions are important for optimal results. PCA Peels are medical-grade treatments and should be undertaken seriously.
