PCA Peel® modified and enhanced Jessner’s peels
These two peel solutions soften the depth of surface lines around the eyes and nasolabial folds, help clear acne, smooth skin texture and even skin tone. They are especially beneficial for oily skin. These blends combine AHA with kojic acid with a modified Jessner’s solution to address hyperpigmentation from sun damage, inflammation and hormonal changes. AHA and melanogenesis inhibitors suppress the chain reaction responsible for the creation of new melanin. Resorcinol and the FDA-approved lightener hydroquinone are optional in these formulas.
- PCA Peel® with Hydroquinone provides an exceptional blend of hydroquinone, kojic acid and lactic acid, which provide lightening and strengthening power with minimal surface stimulation. This solution helps treat hyperpigmentation, acne and surface texture issues.
This enhanced Jessner’s formula is for those who want an even skin tone and have no sensitivity to hydroquinone. It will help to quickly lighten pigment discolorations of any kind, such as melasma and actinic damage. In addition, this peel helps inhibit active acne and correct post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from acne.
- PCA Peel® with Hydroquinone & Resorcinol combines the lightening and brightening power of hydroquinone, kojic and lactic acids with strengthening and flaking agents to leave the skin smooth and clear. This solution provides dramatic improvement in photodamaged, hyperpigmented, resilient skin types.
The most potent of our enhanced Jessner’s formulas, this peel will even skin tone and provide more exfoliation for oilier, thicker and more resilient skin types. It is extremely effective on sun-damaged and thickened skin. It is also excellent for those with active or cystic acne and asphyxiated skin (dry on the surface, oily underneath) or those who require deeper treatment
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels
All PCA SKIN’s TCA solutions are exceptional for the treatment of aging skin, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, dehydration and acne, especially in dry skin.
- Sensi Peel® is formulated for all Fitzpatrick skin types. It is an exceptional choice for ethnic skin or those with extremely sensitive skin types. This TCA and lactic acid solution offers skin smoothing, melanogenesis inhibition, strengthening and hydration to many who previously would not have been candidates for chemical exfoliation procedures (e.g. rosacea). It is highly effective with virtually no stimulation.
This gentle solution is formulated primarily for ethnic skin and other extremely sensitive skin types. Sensi Peel® will strengthen and brighten the skin while helping to treat sun damage and other forms of hyperpigmentation. This multifaceted treatment also provides anti-inflammatory, anti-acne and antibacterial action, making it an excellent choice for helping to calm rosacea, as redness and inflammation can subside substantially after treatment.
- Ultra Peel® I is a blend of TCA and lactic acid with the addition of phytohormones for plumping and hydration. It is an exceptional choice for darker skin types and mature skin. Kojic and azelaic acids act as antibacterial agents as well as melanogenesis inhibitors. L-ascorbic acid is present for skin strengthening and brightening
Specially formulated to treat dehydrated, maturing skin, Ultra Peel® I is also appropriate for many other skin types, conditions and sensitivities. It will help treat pigment disorders, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damaged skin and acne. This treatment is especially ideal for sensitive skin, as it produces only a mild tingling sensation. Mild to moderate exfoliation will be experienced, depending on the number of layers applied. Overall, the final result will be plump, hydrated and luminous skin.
