PCA Chemical Peels in Louisville
What is a PCA Skin® Peel?
Like other chemical peels, PCA peels can lessen the look of hyperpigmentation, reduce acne and acne scarring, and minimize the appearance of aging by exfoliating dead skin cells. Chemical peels work by exposing a new layer of skin underneath. PCA peels are chemical peels that contain trichloroacetic acid (TCA). Also called blended peels, they treat layers of the skin below the superficial layers. Summers Aesthetics Medical Spa & Brow Bar performs safe and effective PCA peels in Louisville.
Which PCA Chemical Peels Do You Offer?
At Summers Aesthetics in St. Matthews, Louisville, all of our chemical peels begin with a refreshing cleanser and smoothing toner treatment followed by dermaplaning to allow for maximum absorption and results.
PCA® peel with Hydroquinone
This chemical peel is targeted for those that struggle with hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone.
This peel will help even skin texture while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The PCA® Sensi peel is well suited for those clients with uneven skin texture, rosacea, and sensitive skin. This chemical peel is a great entry-level peel for those who have never had a previous chemical peel and wish to give it a try.
Each of our PCA® chemical peels includes a PCA® post-procedure care kit. This kit will meet ALL of your skincare post-treatment regimen needs. For at least 1 week after your treatment, it is important to ONLY use these products after your chemical peel, or as instructed by your esthetician or medical provider at Summers.
Superficial PCA peels vs. Medium Depth Peels
Superficial PCA peels are generally performed 3 to 4 weeks apart. Consider booking traditional peels or using PCA® products to keep peel benefits longer.
Medium-depth chemical peels contain TCA and are used for more severe skin issues. It’s still minimally invasive and very effective — a great value.
PCA professional peels are cautiously applied at the correct concentration for a precise time. They treat skin conditions that may not have been successfully treated with less effective peels. They can also give your skin a renewed glow and a more youthful appearance.
Who should get a PCA Chemical Peel?
Our skin care team recommends PCA professional medium-depth peels for severe skin issues (like rough texture, pigmentation, and scarring). Some patients go this route if a superficial peel cannot treat their problem effectively. Patients must fully commit to the before-and-after skincare instructions for safe and effective results.
Candidates for the medium-depth skin peel are healthy without a skin condition that may increase the risk of complications from chemical peels. Patients must have realistic expectations for the peel’s results.
