An Overview of Chemical Peels

Medical peels, also referred to as chemical peels, are a type of skin treatment that do a really wonderful job at helping patients improve their overall look and feel to their skin. What medical peels essentially do is remove the top layer of skin through a safe chemical solution.

Some of the more common benefits associated with the use of medical peels include reduced scarring, an evening of a patient’s skin tone, fine lines being erased and an overall much smoother feeling skin. Infusion masks are used after a medical peel treatment is completed in order to protect and rejuvenate a patient’s skin.

Medical peels are also helpful in terms of treating the following:

  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Psoriasis
  • Fine lines
  • Hyper pigmentation
  • Wrinkles

Medical peels generally are a great option for those individuals who have sensitive skin, or are allergic to hydroquinone. The treatments involved with medical peels are known to do wonders in terms of unclogging pores, clearing out acne breakouts and giving a patient’s skin a rejuvenating feel and look.

The peels have a unique blend of both alpha and beta hydroxy acids and brighteners, which makes medical peels an incredible option for people who are trying to maintain an even pigmentation or are trying to correct their pigmentation.

PCA SKIN is a cosmeceutical company that is known for originating today’s progressive blended medical peels, and Dr. Pacheco is certified by PCA SKIN to administer their professional treatments. Some of the PCA peels that Dr. Pacheco provides include the following:

  • PCA Sensi Peel
  • PCA Peel Hydroquinone Free
  • PCA Peel with Hydroquinone
  • PCA Ultra Peel

PCA Sensi Peel

This medical peel is great for those with sensitive skin, or those who are allergic to hydroquinone. PCA Peel Hydroquinone Free

This is a very gentle solution that many practitioners would say is oriented towards those patients with ethnic skin, or other types of sensitive skin types. This peel helps brighten and strengthen skin while treating things like sun damage and hyperpigmentation (discoloration).

This treatment is very multi-faceted and can also be an anti-blemish, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial action. This is partly why it’s a great option for those who need help with subsiding their rosacea.

PCA Peel with Hydroquinone

This type of peel formula helps people who want even skin tone and are not sensitive to hydroquinone. These peels do an efficient job at lightening pigmentation discolorations, and they help stop breakouts from occurring.

PCA Ultra Peel

This formula is specifically used for maturing, dehydrated skin, but it’s also great for many skin types and sensitivities. This peel helps with fine lines and wrinkles, sun damaged skin, pigment disorders and acne. Mild to moderate exfoliation should be expected, and the overall result will be a very luminous, hydrated skin tone.

There’s no doubt about it that over time our skin’s surface layers become damaged, wrinkled or discolored, but a medical peel from Dr. Pacheco could be a great solution to helping your skin get back on the right track.
