PCA Skin, used in our AVRA chemical peel treatments, is today’s leader in chemical peels. For more than 25 years, PCA SKIN has been creating the best and most innovative professional treatments in the industry. Endorsed and promoted by the American Association of Facial Plastic Surgery, PCA Skin is offering the new age chemical peels, which stimulate the rebirth of cells through a combination of various beneficial acids, without injuring the skin. Being applied professionally and in correct doses, these peels are tailor made to the needs of every face. In other words, therapy is totally personalized. PCA chemical peels rejuvenate the skin and tackle even the most demanding problems. We no longer use an essence, which causes aggressive exfoliation, but rather a variety of active ingredients and acids that are being adapted to the needs of every skin type.
Peeling is a form of exfoliation. When your skin peels or flakes after a treatment, your skin is shedding dead or damaged surface cells and revealing new, healthy skin cells on the surface. This procedure is called “cell turnover”. Supporting the cell turnover process with chemical peels is what allows the skin to shed dead cells and bring new, fresh skin to the surface, free of signs of aging, sun damage, dirt and debris. The result is a glowing skin. You won’t necessarily experience any visible peeling. This doesn’t mean your treatment was ineffective. Everyone experiences different levels of peeling, dependent on their skin type, resilience, type of peel and the number of layers applied. Some people experience ‘sheeting,’ where large portions of the skin peel off at once. Some experience ‘flaking,’ where small pieces of skin peel off, similar to dry, winter skin or a mild peeling after sunburn. Others experience exfoliation that is not visible. 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 will experience. Consult our PCA Certified Professionals to find out what type of peel is best for your skin
The perfected formulas in PCA SKIN improve skin conditions such as: visible aging, acne, skin discolorations, hyperpigmentation and other sensitive skin conditions. For each skin type and concern there is a special treatment formula, which increases the skin’s cell turnover rate, bringing new skin cells to the surface, reducing signs of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and clearing breakouts.
Professionally applied peel solutions exfoliate dead skin cells and help healthy skin cells rise to the surface. These treatments allow for deeper layers of fresh and untouched skin to be revealed. The result of constant, monthly treatments can even skin tone, clear acne, improve the appearance of aging skin and make dull complexions glow. The perfect number of therapies varies depending on the problem, but 2-3 applications are generaly reccomended by AVRA estheticians as part of a targeted therapy.
