Chemical Peels

PCA Chemical Treatments

 

At Beautiful Skin, we use PCA Skincare products for our chemical peels. PCA’s philosophy starts with the basic premise that healthy skin is beautiful skin. Their professional treatment protocols focus on breaking through the stratum corneum (outer layer of skin) to nourish the underlying dermis. This gentle approach leads to great results without the unwanted downtime of traditional treatments. A PCA peel treatment will produce minimal peeling, really only flaking of the skin about 3 days post treatment with no over drying or redness. The PCA Chemical peel treatment can also be combined with a microdermabrasion to form a MICROPEEL FACIAL. Micropeel treatments further the effectiveness of the chemical peel routine.

One can expect immediate slight burning and redness of the skin, as well as tightness, drying and flaking of the skin. Any product containing water should not be applied to the skin for 6-8 hours after the chemical is applied and only mineral foundation should be used immediately after a peel.

While a chemical peel or series of chemical peels are effective in most cases, no guarantee can be made that a specific individual will benefit from the treatment. Multiple peels may be necessary to achieve the desired results and the degree of improvement after each one is variable.

PUMPKIN PEEL

 

The Pumpkin Peel Treatment is a powerful keratolytic and antioxidant therapy that brightens and rejuvenates the skin. Enzymes and Salicylic Acid from pumpkin loosen and dissolve dead surface cells while rich nutrients content in this treatment infuses the skin with high levels of Vitamin C and A and other antioxidants that protect the skin from environmental damage. This combination is essential for strengthening the collagen matrix that supports healthy, younger-looking skin.

The Pumpkin Peel is wonderful for treating acneic conditions, thick resilient skin and hyperkeratolytic buildup.

 

CLARIFYING PEEL

 

The Clarifying Mask Treatment blends 20% Salicylic Acid, Cascarilla bark, Vit E, Cherry Extracts and Allantoin that makes this an ideal treatment for improving acne, break-out prone skin, and sluggish dull complexions. Its exfoliating , antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits refine skin texture and bring new brightness and freshness to skin.

OXYTRIO

 

For an Oxypeel Treatment, we first apply 1-2 layers of the appropriate Jessner, UltraI or Sensi Peel formula. This will provide the acid needed for proper exfoliation. Then we employ the Oxengenating Trio. This is an antioxidant therapy to correct and prevent free radical damage because oxidative and environmental stress to the skin is one of the more significant contributors to the aging process. This treatment will help stimulate respiration and circulation within the skin. This trio promotes healing and rejuvenates sluggish, stressed skin depleted by toxins, pollutants, allergens, improper diet and solar damage.

The Oxypeel treatment is ideal for the treatment of asphyxiated acneic skin because it provides exfoliation of clogged pores and oxygenation of skin suffering from stress and helps to provide an environment that is hard for bacteria to thrive.
