Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much downtime is expected with a peel?
A: There is no downtime whatsoever with PCA chemical peels. You can actually receive a peel on your lunch hour and return to work.
Q: When will I start “peeling,” for how long and how much?
A: Everyone’s experience will be different. However, on average, you will see flaking by day two or three following the treatment. It is possible to see flaking for up to five or six days. With all PCA peels, only light to medium exfoliation will be experienced.
Q: Can a person who is in the sun a lot receive a peel?
A: Yes, only if they are compliant with using sunscreen protection.
Q: Can someone using Retin-A, AGel or Accutane have any PCA treatments?
A: We generally recommend that Retin-A or AGel be stopped for five days prior to a peel and five days post-treatment because of the potential irritation and uneven peel penetrations. Accutane users tend to have sensitive skin and need to be treated only with appropriate peels.
Q: Can pregnant or lactating women receive a peel?
A: No. However, other exfoliating and hydrating treatments can be performed for pregnant or lactating women. Ask your esthetician for more details.
Q: My skin is very thin. Why would I want to peel? Wouldn’t that make my skin thinner?
A: If your skin is dry and thin, often there is a buildup of dead cells that actually keeps your home care products from penetrating. Having a PCA ultra peel treatment will remove the 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 regimen, will help to build the collagen in your skin, thus making it stronger and more durable.
