Common Myths About Chemical Peels

Myth

Having a peel is painful and makes your face look red, flaky and unsightly until the peeling is done.

Fact

PCA SKIN peels typically cause little to no discomfort, minimal visible exfoliation, and your skin will be glowing and healthy-looking following treatment. Our wide range of treatments allows us to customize to each patients skin needs.

Myth

My face gets red and sting when I apply products at home, so my skin is too sensitive for a chemical peel.

Fact

Our wide range of peels offer benefits for all skin types – even the most sensitive. Our medical estheticians will choose the formula best suited for your skin.

Myth

Peels are only for people with severe skin concerns, like acne, hyperpigmentation and deep wrinkles.

Fact

While chemical peels do effectively treat all skin concerns, they are also great options for maintaining skin health and help to prevent visible damage.
