Why Should I Get A Peel

Enjoy this innovative monthly entry and feel free to contact us with questions.

Facial Chemical Peel

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but knew the highly refined clinical peel from PCA Skincare gets rave reviews, so I was excited to give it a try. It’s a gentle yet highly effective treatment and is recommended for use only a couple times a year because of its strength. The peel is designed to improve overall skin texture, reduce fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne, and rosacea making a dramatic difference in the brightness and health of the skin. Reportedly, it’s painless and very relaxing to receive, unlike the intense peels of the past. This one doesn’t traumatize or dry the skin.  Instead, while the skin is being deeply exfoliated, it is also hydrated leaving it remarkably moist and supple when the process is complete – which could take a few days or up to couple of weeks. Some people don’t even peel with the peel!  Everyone is different, so I would wait and see.

The only prep I had to do was to avoid the sun or tanning booths which I don’t use anyway, and refrain from waxing and the use of Retin-A, Renova and products similar in nature including glycolic treatments.

I was ready!

My treatment room was peaceful and dimly lit except for the light my therapist, Jude, used to illuminate my face, neck and decollete. She gently cleansed my skin and then examined it to determine what level of the peel I required. We talked a bit about my face and its reaction to various products and stimulants.

Then we began.

The cool, liquidity peel was applied in soft layers with time taken between each application for the layer to set. There was a tiny bit of stinging in some areas, but nothing really significant.  A fan was turned on near my face to help cool the process and the tingling. Jude talked to me throughout the treatment to make sure I was comfortable and to answer any questions. When we finished, my skin had a slightly rosy, barely noticeable coating. It felt tighter, but nothing extreme.

My post peel directions were printed out for me and included no washing for at least three days. I was given the PCA follow up kit which contained a cleanser, a rebalancing cream, luscious morning and evening moisturizers, and sun block.  I was instructed to keep out of the sun, and not to become overheated or put my face directly in the stream of shower water. I was not to peel my skin or use loofahs or exfoliators – and no swimming until the process was complete.  A follow- up facial to remove any dead flakes and infuse my newly rejuvenated skin with deeply healing serums was scheduled for the following week.

In my case, I did peel.  I peeled a lot. And my face was a little puffy for a few days until things settled down. Something was definitely happening!

When I returned a week later, I was still peeling on the outer edges of my face and on my neck and chest. I guess I had a lot of skin that was ready to go! But the facial was like a gift from the gods…so soothing and relaxing.  For more than an hour, layer upon layer of wonderfully fragrant natural plant serums were applied and expertly massaged into my skin. I was absolutely glowing afterward, recharged and ready to maintain this gorgeous, dewy new face!
