Professional Grade Chemical Peels
Professionally applied peel solutions exfoliate dead skin cells and help healthy skin cells rise to the surface. These treatments allow deeper layers of fresh and untouched skin to be revealed. The result of monthly treatments can even skin tone, clear acne, improve the appearance of aging skin and make dull complexions glow.
Peels are safe for all skin types, at Be Bellus Wellness & Aesthetics we are trained to identify what treatment combination is safe for each person’s skin in order for patients to reap the greatest benefits. Professional peels are increasingly effective with pre- and post-treatment care, balancing your skin before the peel and nurturing it after the treatment.
Pre- and Post-treatment
Using PCA SKIN’s daily care products in the weeks before your professional treatment is an important step in preparing your skin and ensuring excellent results. Here, at Be Bellus Wellness & Aesthetics you can find all the daily skin care products that you will need. Skin that is balanced and healthy will help reduce the risk of complications and typically lead to better treatment results.
Equally as important, post-treatment products are designed to be used after a chemical peel or other minimally invasive professional treatments to minimize the potential for uncommon side effects. In preparation for your treatment, your clinician will evaluate your skin to determine the most effective combination of daily care products for you.
Along with receiving regular treatments from a clinician, a daily care regimen is critical to achieving and maintaining optimal skin health. Consider the 60:1 analogy: you manage your own skin at least twice a day at home; that’s 60 times in any given month versus a single monthly treatment from a clinician.
The basics for a PCA SKIN® daily care regimen include: cleanse, correct, hydrate and protect. While professional treatments are just as important for the health of your skin, doing your part on a daily basis to improve and maintain the results of those treatments is key.
Revolutionizing professional treatments
At Be Bellus Wellness and Aesthetics we only use leading products. PCA SKIN® is the leader in chemical peels with more than 25 years formulating the best and most innovative professional treatments in the industry. Expertly formulated chemical peels are a driving force in helping you achieve your skincare goals. More than one million PCA SKIN peels are performed globally each year.
There are a myriad of benefits from regular chemical peel treatments. With formulations for all skin types — even those with sensitive skin — PCA SKIN peels improve skin concerns: acne, hyperpigmentation and aging. These challenging skin concerns are improved with our perfected formulas by increasing the skin’s cell turnover rate, bringing new skin cells to the surface, reducing signs of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and clearing breakouts.
PCA SKIN was the first company to develop and market the modified and enhanced Jessner’s peel, a solution that combines lactic acid, salicylic acid, kojic acid, citric acid and resorcinol.
This revolutionary reformulation provides safer application, a more comfortable treatment and increased skin benefits. The PCA Peel® line of modified and enhanced Jessner’s peels is in medical and aesthetic offices all over the world. PCA SKIN line of peels has since expanded to include TCA and lactic blended peels, retinoid peels and boosters, and chemical peel alternatives.
Everything you need to know before your first treatment
Chemical peels are an important part of skin health. As an effective treatment option for most skin types and concerns, they improve tone, texture, fine lines and wrinkles, breakouts and dark spots, but many people are intimidated to go in for their first peel treatment. The fear of leaving with a bright red face that hurts prevents some from experiencing the many benefits of a peel. The post-peel reality is a glowing, healthy complexion. Here’s everything you need to know before your first PCA SKIN chemical peel:
Peeling is 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 action 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 glowing skin.
You won’t necessarily experience visible peeling. That doesn’t mean your treatment was ineffective. Everyone experiences different levels of peeling, dependent upon skin type, resilience, type of peel and the number of layers applied. Some people experience ‘sheeting,’ when large portions of the skin peel off at once. Some experience ‘flaking,’ when small pieces of skin peel off, similar to dry, winter skin or mild peeling after a 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.
Peels are easy to work into a busy lifestyle. There is no downtime with PCA SKIN chemical peels — you’ll leave your appointment with a healthy glow and able to carry on with your regular activities. There are steps to ensure that your results are maximized. Following the recommended post-procedure regimen after your treatment will enhance your results and keep peeling and redness to a minimum. You should also avoid anything that causes sweating for 48 hours after treatment. One of our clinician will give you more detailed instructions after your procedure, catered to your skin’s needs.
