Evolve Medical Associates PCA Peels

What are PCA SKIN Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are exfoliating treatments that cause your skin to peel or flake to shed dead or damaged surface cells and reveal new and healthy skin in a process called cell turnover. By using chemical peels to kickstart cell turnover, your skin will appear fresh and free of the signs of aging, sun damage, dirt, and debris.

PCA SKIN peels are even more advanced treatments that are scientifically formulated to gently stimulate, firm, and tighten skin. These progressive, in-office treatments are gentle and produce visible, proven results. Our aestheticians will assess your skin for the perfect PCA SKIN peel to give you a more beautiful, healthy complexion.

Benefits of PCA SKIN Peels

The clinically researched formulations in PCA SKIN peels have a plethora of benefits for your skin, such as:

  • Clears acne-plagued and blemished skin
  • Reduces the depth of surface lines
  • Smoothens skin
  • Evens skin tone and diminishes redness
  • Brightens dark spots
  • No downtime, unlike many other peels

Isabella is the best. I have seen her for BBL and microneedling. She is so meticulous and detail oriented and takes what she does very seriously. I have been other places and it just doesn’t compare. I have recommended her to many of my friends.

I am immensely grateful to Isabella for the remarkable care and expertise she has provided during my BBL treatments. In just four sessions, my skin has undergone a significant transformation, and I couldn't be happier. From the very first consultation, Isabella's meticulous approach stood out. She took the time to understand my skin concerns and walked me through the entire process. Despite the unique challenges of my skin, she provided detailed explanations, even specifying the optimal wavelength for the procedure. I am thrilled with the progress my skin has made under her care. Each visit leaves me not only with improved skin but also with a genuine sense of happiness. Isabella even provided acne treatment samples, emphasizing her dedication to addressing every concern. In just four BBL treatments, Isabella has worked wonders for my skin. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking top-notch dermatological care.

Isabella is amazing! I’ve done quite a few rounds of Coolsculpting and my before and after pics speak for themselves - phenomenal results. Isabella has a fun personality, she cracks me up and she’s always super honest. She sets me up with TV, snacks, blankets, pillows and makes me feel as comfortable as possible. I would always recommend Isabella and her Coolsculpting. She is truly an expert!

Frequently Asked Questions

What Products are Used During a PCA Skin Peel?

Our peels use a variety of skin-loving ingredients to target specific skin concerns, such as acne or aging. These include modified and enhanced Jessners that repair and reduce breakouts, control oil levels, and soften lines to provide an even and smooth skin texture.

How Much Downtime is Expected with a PCA SKIN Peel?

There is little to no downtime with PCA chemical peels. You can actually receive a peel on your lunch hour and return to work! Your skin will be shiny and possibly show signs of redness, but it will not interfere with your daily activities.

When Will I Start "Peeling"?

Everyone’s experience will be different. Patients typically experience flaking for two or three days following the treatment, though it is possible to see flaking for up to five or six days.

For How Long and How Much Will I Peel?

You won’t necessarily experience visible peeling, but this doesn’t mean your treatment was ineffective. Everyone experiences different levels of peeling depending on their skin type, resilience, type of peel, and the number of layers applied. Some people experience ‘sheeting,’ which occurs when large portions of the skin peel off at once, while others may experience ‘flaking,’ where small pieces of skin peel off. And if you don’t peel, your skin is still exfoliating. In this case, the exfoliation is happening on a cellular level that can’t be seen by the naked eye. Typically, the deeper the peel you receive, the more extensive peeling you’ll experience.

Is a PCA SKIN Peel Irritating?

PCA SKIN peels are only slightly irritating to the skin. You may experience mild burning or stinging, but this will eventually subside, and your results will be glowing.

Can I Receive a Peel If I’m in the Sun a Lot?

Yes, but only if you use sun protection and avoid the sun 48 hours after your peel. If you’re using peels to lighten the skin, Perfecting Protection (SPF 30+) is the ideal sunscreen to use to reduce any chance of further hyperpigmentation due to its enhanced lightening ingredients of Bearberry, Licorice Root Extract, Kojic Acid, Mulberry Root and Lactic Acid.

What Peels Can Be Used on Someone Who Frequently Works Out?

Someone who frequently works out can have any peel but must wait 48 hours after the treatment to exercise. If you don’t want to wait, any non-chemical or retinol peel is also a great choice. The Esthetique or our Ultra Peel™ II, which is an acid-free, time-released retinol cream, are also wonderful options. These options have a delayed flaking action that doesn’t create any irritation or downtime and leaves the skin glowing and hydrated.

My Skin is Very Thin. Why Would I Want a Peel? Wouldn't That Make My Skin Thinner?

If your skin is dry and thin, there’s often a buildup of dead cells that can keep your home care products from penetrating. Getting a retinol treatment will remove surface buildup, hydrate the skin, and give it a more plump, “thicker” appearance. The use of vitamin C products in the treatment, as well as in your home care program, will help build the collagen in your skin, making it stronger and more durable.

Can Pregnant or Lactating Women Receive a Peel?

PCA SKIN chemical peels are not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing, but there are other treatments available.

Can Someone Using Rentin-A® or Accutane® Undergo PCA Peel Treatments?

We generally recommend that Retin-A® use is stopped five days prior to a peel and five days post treatment because of potential irritation and uneven peel penetration. Accutane® users tend to have very dry and sensitive skin, and need to be treated only with peels that are appropriate for their skin type. We’ve found that the PCA non-peel solutions are Accutane® friendly. However, your skin care specialist should always be made aware of any Retin-A® or Accutane® use and may recommend you postpone treatment if your skin is too reactive.

What is the Difference Between PCA and Glycolic Peels?

Glycolic acid will dehydrate skin and make your pores larger after extended use. PCA uses lactic and citric acids, which are skin-friendly because they’re natural constituents of your skin. PCA peels are unique because they moisturize and hydrate your skin to make it fresh, soft, and supple — the way it wants to be!
