We love the medium grade 14% blend off acids by PCA! These peels treat multiple issues at the same time such fine lines, dark spots, and tightens skin.
It promotes cellular turnover by deep cleaning pores and exfoliating dead skin cells which reduces congestion and breakouts. These peels contain lactic, salicylic, citric acids. We can also treat pigment/hyperpigmentation with Hydroquinone, Kojic Acid, and Resourcinol.
Downtime needed is 3-4 days. The first 2 days you will look a little sun burnt as though you just came back from vacation. You can wear makeup during this time. Day 3 thru day 6, you will be very peely like a sun burn but more intense. You can wear makeup during the peely phase, but it is hard to do so.
We recommend doing these peels on a Wednesday evening if you have weekends off. For acne, PCA recommends doing the peels 2 weeks apart. For fine lines and dark spots, it is best to this peel every 3 weeks to 1 month. After you are done peeling, your skin will look feel tight, look refreshed and rejuvenated, and will be have a glow like you have never seen before!
