PCA SKIN Corrective Peels

Corrective Skin Peels

Medical Esthetics by Katie proudly offers the finest medical grade corrective peels which deliver maximum efficacy with minimal skin barrier disruption and irritation. Formulated for all skin types and conditions, these corrective peels effectively re-texturize, rejuvenate, and improves the overall appearance of your skin .

 

At Medical Esthetics by Katie's New Westminster Clinic, your Corrective Peel is customized specifically for your skin and desired results. A detailed Advanced Skin Analysis using the latest research and developments in advanced skin treatments. This will assess your skin health to determine the best peel for your skin type and condition for optimal exfoliation results. My commitment is to a high standard of care from start to finish and is ensured by receiving a personalised skin care plan and follow ups.

Corrective Peels are clinical treatments using concentrated acidic solutions to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin, regenerate new cell growth, fibroblast stimulation and collagen production, and dramatically improve the skins' overall appearance. These customized peel treatments are designed to progressively treat issues ranging from moderate to severe acne, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone and texture. ​After the peel your skin will look instantly smoother, brighter and more hydrated, with minimal downtime.

Your skin must be prepped for two weeks with a peel prep kit prior to having your first corrective peel. A series of six peels is recommended. Pre and post treatment protocols are mandatory, and must be followed to ensure skin safety and to achieve desired results.

NOTE:

Visible exfoliation doesn’t determine the efficacy of treatment. Generally, healthy skin has less visible exfoliation. Exfoliation often takes place at the cellular level and is not always apparent to the naked eye. Conversely, some patients’ skin is so impacted that it can take a few peels to loosen dead cells enough to allow them to shed. Typically, these patients will see little or no peeling initially, and then see sloughing after a few treatments. Using analogies that a patient can relate to can be an incredibly useful tool when explaining to a patient why they may not peel. For example, feeling drowsy after taking pain medication is a side effect, just as peeling is a side effect to a chemical peel; some people may feel drowsy when taking the medication and some may not, just as some may experience exfoliation from a peel and some may not – either way, the efficacy of the medication or peel is not contingent on the side effect. 

 

FAQs

  • Which peels may be used on someone who exercises frequently?

    Someone who is active may have any peel, but all peel patients must wait 48 hours after a treatment to exercise. If this is not an option, the Oxygenating Trio and Detox Treatment, and use the Ultra Peel® II Exfoliating Treatment which is an acid-free retinol cream. Its delayed flaking action will not cause irritation or downtime, and leaves the skin glowing and hydrated.

  • Can people who are frequently in the sun receive peels?

    Yes, but only if they use (SPF) sunscreen protection every day. Sunbathing should be avoided due to increased risk of skin cancer and visible premature aging, but especially prior to treatments. Directly following treatment and while the skin is peeling. If you are receiving corrective peels to reduce the skin discoloration (Hyper Pigmentation) it is imperative to use the appropriate PCA SKIN’s Skin Brightening products, as well as a broad spectrum SPF product daily and avoid unnecessary sun exposure to reduce the chance of further hyper pigmentation. 

  • I didn’t peel, did the treatment work?

    PCA SKIN peels deliver excellent results whether or not visible peeling occurs. Exfoliation is at a cellular level and not apparent to the naked eye.  PCA SKIN professional treatments create a tighter, firmer complexion and appearance. They are formulated to preserve, promote and protect healthy skin, regardless of whether the patient sees visible exfoliation following treatment.
