PCA Chemical Peels-Portland

I have chosen PCA Skin’s line of chemical peels in my practice for two main reasons.

 

1. I’ve had or tried pretty much every product or treatment know to the skin obsessed crowd. I’ve had an ongoing struggle with hyperpigmentation and breakouts through the years, always searching for anything that would improve my skin. When I came across PCA Skin, had a chemical peel and purchased a few of their products I was astonished at what it did for my skin. That was more than 15 years ago!

 

2. PCA’s philosophy on skincare is similar to my life philosophy. More is not always better. Consistency paired with efficiency delivers the best result. PCA’s chemical peels are very tolerable with little or no discomfort or downtime. The result is beautiful and immediate! Leaving my salon your skin will feel slightly tight and have a beautiful glow. I recommend committing to a peel once a month for 6 months. A regular program of peels combined with proper home care will help repair and restore your skin to a beautiful natural state. 

 

PCA peels stimulate the exfoliation process, removing the build-up of dead skin cells that can clog pores and leave skin looking dull and lifeless. This non-aggressive approach is cumulative, results will be seen over the course of several months. 

Benefits of PCA Chemical Peels: 

Exfoliate dead skin, stimulate new cell growth, stimulate collagen & elastin production, kill bacteria, reduce acne, reduce scarring, lighten hyperpigmentation, soften wrinkles, tighten pores, moderate skins moisture level, soften and smooth, skin texture, firm and tighten. Increases the effectiveness of skincare products by removing the top layer of dead skin cells, products are able to penetrate deeper.

I highly recommend purchasing a package of 6 and committing to one peel a month for 6 months. This will create lasting change at the cellular level of your skin.

Lisa G Skincare offers several different types of PCA Skin peels to choose from:

NEW! PCA Skin VI Peel

I call this one my 'Pigment Power Peel' as it is extremely effective in lightening hyperpigmentation. Three separate peel formulations are utilized during this treatment. The PCA Jessner peel, one of PCA's trichloroacetic acid peels and PCA's retinol 4% or 6% peel. Hyperpigmentation, acne, scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, oil, pore size are all addressed. Flakiness can last for up to 2 weeks. Absolutely loving the results I'm seeing on the hard to lighten decollate area!

 

PCA Skin Peel

A potent enhanced Jessner’s formula, this peel will even skin tone and provide more exfoliation for oilier, thicker and 

more resilient skin types. It is extremely effective on sun damaged and thickened skin. It is also excellent for those with active or cystic acne and asphyxiated skin (dry on the surface, oily underneath), or those who require a deeper treatment.

Sensi Peel 

Formulated as a unique peeling option for all patients, including those with highly sensitive skin. This gentle 6% TCA solution will improve surface texture and brighten the skin while helping to promote an even skin tone. This multi faceted and skin brightening treatment is an excellent option for sensitive skin and darker complexions.

Body Peel

Pre-Peel Accelerator Mask (Step 1) provides nourishing ingredients that soften and hydrate the skin’s surface, while Smoothing Body Peel (Step 2) improves the appearance and texture of the skin with a combination of exfoliating, smoothing and brightening ingredients. This treatment is an excellent choice for promoting an even skin tone and clear complexion on the arms, legs, back, chest, hands and feet.

Ultra Peel I

Specially formulated to treat maturing skin. Ultra Peel I is also appropriate for many other skin types, conditions and sensitivities. It will help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while promoting an even skin tone and clear complexion.

Ultra Peel Forte

The most suitable candidates for this more active treatment are those with resilient skin. Ultra Peel Forte rejuvenates the skin and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while promoting an even skin tone. Physician strength.

NEW! PCA MD Peel: Medical Strength True Medium-Depth Peel
 

This peel is suitable ONLY for those with resilient skin who have had my other PCA chemicals peels in the past. This is a highly active treatment which rejuvenates the skin, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while promoting an even skin tone. 
 

Expect dramatic results and mire visible exfoliation than with other PCA Skin Peels.
