A Chemical Peel for Sensitive Skin: PCA Sensi Peel
Do you remember the way your skin felt before sun damage? Smooth, supple to the touch cheeks and a glow to die for. The good news is we’ve figured out a way to bring your glow back, and it doesn’t involve pricking or other invasive procedures.
What is the PCA Sensi Peel?
The PCA Sensi Peel is a gentle TCA chemical peel solution, created to treat sun damage and address varying levels of hyperpigmentation.
What does the PCA Sensi Peel target?
It’s rare to stumble upon a true holy grail product, but this one does it all. The Sensi Peel targets surface texture, skin brightening, and helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It’s friendly for skin types and colors hoping to give their skin a little extra love and rewind some of the damage done over time.
Who is an ideal candidate for this chemical peel?
If you’re thinking that your skin can do its thing and only need a face mask or two each month to keep it happy, think again. The PCA Sensi Peel is a great option for anyone with sun damage, early aging signs, acne scarring and even rosacea. The trichloroacetic acid and lactic acid are the pillars of modern chemical exfoliation and speeding up cell turnover.
Your overall facial skin appearance deserves care and retroactive rejuvenation in order to heal and reveal its true state of being. If you have acne-prone skin, sensitive skin, or are just hoping to address fine lines with very minimal downtime, keep reading.
How many sessions will you need to see results?
One of the most common deterrents when someone is considering a facial treatment, is the fear of committing to a year-long series of sessions. Whether you’re in med school or a full-time parent, you understand the value of your time. You can see results within one Sensi Peel treatment, and results are only amplified with a great skincare routine and repeat sessions.
PCA Sensi Peel procedure
At the start of your procedure, your aesthetician will cleanse your skin and perform a manual exfoliation before they apply the chemical exfoliator (your peel). This is to help remove any remaining makeup or dirt and debris your skin collected throughout the day.
How to prepare for a PCA Sensi Peel
You want to be prepared prior to your treatment to get the most out of the PCA Sensi Peel. Making sure to avoid any excessive irritants to your skin like retinoids will help keep irritation to a minimum and get the most from your appointment.
What to expect during the appointment
The toughest part of trying a new skincare treatment is envisioning how your appointment will go. Since the Sensi Peel is noninvasive, you can expect your appointment to last around 30 minutes from beginning to end. This is a much quicker turnaround, requiring little to no healing time compared to many other chemical peel treatments.
Proper PCA Sensi Peel aftercare
After your PCA Sensi Peel treatment, there are a few things to be mindful of to ensure your face has all of the nutrients it needs to take full advantage of the post-peel skin. Avoiding excessive heat and sweating, sun exposure, tanning beds, and exfoliation is a crucial part of optimal healing. When your skin is in a vulnerable place, protecting it with SPF and shielding it from even a Sunday out on the boat is crucial. Lastly, never, never pull at any peeling skin in the event that you did have flaking with this or any other aesthetic treatment.
The importance of going to a licensed aesthetician for your PCA Sensi Peel
There are plenty of options when it comes to choosing the proper facial treatment. And even though it might be tempting to try them at home, avoid that route at all costs – especially when it comes to chemical peels. Going to a licensed aesthetician for your PCA Sensi Peel ensures that your safety is the number one concern. In a DIY culture, we quickly lose sight of the dangers and risks associated with attempting procedures that a specialist would typically perform.
What are the potential side effects of using peels at home?
Although tempting, doing this chemical peel at home creates high, unnecessary risks. And without the guidance of an aesthetician, you may struggle with the application process. This could be particularly dangerous for your eyes and skin, especially without the right tools and experience. Chemical burns and future hyperpigmentation are also risks when working with chemicals one is not properly educated and trained in using. In the end, your safety and results are not worth the risk of doing permanent damage to your eyes or skin.
