Chemical Skin Peels

Q. Who Is a Good Candidate For a Chemical Peel?

Ans. Chemical peels are ideal for people who want to treat skin conditions such as hyperpigmentation, uneven texture, fine lines, skin impurities, and wrinkles, and more. These peels promote the growth of healthy skin layer to improve skin imperfections.

Q. How are Chemical Peels Done?

Ans. Based on your skin type, a chemical peel is recommended to you. First, the clinicians chose the best possible treatment for your skin. In the next step, they access how frequently you’ll need the treatment in order to get the desired results.

Q. What To Expect After the Chemical Skin Peel?

Ans. PCA Skin strongly believes that pre-and post-treatment is essential. Procedures are followed to keep your skin calm following treatment. We send all patients home with a Post-Procedure Solution. These are products specifically designed to keep the skin hydrated and protected in the first 10 days post-treatment. It will also help to keep the patient on track and not use any of the other products they may have at home that could possibly irritate the skin during the exfoliation process.

Q. What are some possible complications of chemical skin peels?

Ans. While our peels contain a blend of well-tolerated, safe and effective peeling agents, treatments may cause slight redness, flaking or dryness. These are normal, yet temporary, reactions to chemical peels. To minimize side effects and maximize results, patients should not receive a peel treatment until all skin reactions from waxing have fully resolved. Although everyone’s skin reacts differently to treatments, patients should generally wait two weeks post-waxing, or until the skin returns to baseline, before receiving a peel. It is also recommended to wait at least two weeks after a chemical peel before waxing again.

Q. Is peeling good for the skin?

Ans. Chemical peels are packed with benefits. These include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Deep exfoliation
  • Treats hyperpigmentation and other skin discolorations
  • Facial rejuvenation
  • Unclogs pores
  • Eliminates acne and makes your skin spot-free
  • Reduces the depth of wrinkles or acne scarring
  • Brightens your skin tone
  • Increases the absorption of other skin care products

Q. Can chemical peels damage your skin?

Ans. The truth is that anyone can have an allergic reaction to anything at any time. Sometimes we are able to figure out what the cause of an unfavorable reaction was – and other times we cannot.

There are specific guidelines in place to safeguard against this type of scenario. At PCA SKIN®, the following process is recommended:

1. Conduct a thorough patient consultation. This includes going over important intake forms, making sure all questions regarding allergies and medications are answered.

2. Have the patient use daily care products 10-14 days prior to their first professional treatment. This is considered skin preparation. This not only exposes the patient’s skin to active ingredients they may not have previously used, but it is a good way to find out if there is any possible sensitivity to these ingredients. It is also a great way for patients to see a change in their skin by using these products; they will likely continue to purchase these products from you once they see that change is occurring. Daily care is also important to maintain in-office results.

3. Patch test the patient. Patch testing should be performed in front of the ear. Contact the patient 24-48 hours later to see if there is any unfavorable irritation or rash in the area.

4. Begin treatments slowly. The skin is the largest organ of the body and it takes time to effectively treat common skin conditions. Explain to the patient that with each visit you will increase the activity of the treatments as their skin becomes used to them. Do not listen to the patient who says, “Burn me! I can handle anything. I just want my skin to peel off.” A progressive rather than aggressive approach is always best.

5. Use the scale of 1 to 10. When applying professional treatments, always gauge patient sensitivity. Avoid applying more product when the patient’s sensitivity level reaches higher than a six.

6. Send all patients home with a Post-Procedure Solution. These are products specifically designed to keep the skin hydrated and protected in the first 10 days post-treatment. It will also help to keep the patient on track and not use any of the other products they may have at home that could possibly irritate the skin during the exfoliation process.

Q. Do chemical peels prevent skin cancer?

Ans. Chemical peels work both on fine lines and wrinkles. All the more, it reverses the effects of sun’s damaging rays. It also reduces the actinic keratosis considered premalignant for squamous cell cancer. Therefore, the treatment has shown to decrease the incidences of squamous cell precancers.

Q. Do you peel a lot on the first peel?

Ans. After receiving a PCA SKIN professional treatment you should not necessarily expect to “peel”. However, light flaking in a few localized areas for several days is expected. Most patients have residual redness post-procedure for one to 12 hours.
