Chemical Peel Myths VS. Reality

We get so many phone calls and questions from our clients regarding chemical peels. So many people are "afraid of" chemical peels due to all of the crazy myths out there about them. Chemical peels have changed so much over the years and are such a beneficial deep exfoliation for almost everyone and every skin concern.


Chemical peels have numerous benefits:

  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Controlled oil production and fewer breakouts
  • Diminished discoloration and more even skin tone
  • Increased cell turnover process
  • Overall brightened skin tone
  • Softer, smoother skin
The results sound great right? So lets walk you through some myths and FAQ's of chemical peels according to PCA SKIN:

Why do I need a chemical peel?

Our skin naturally exfoliates, gently shedding skin cells so subtly that most of us don't even notice. However, as we age, this process tends to slow, resulting in a dull complexion.


How do chemical peels work?

Chemical peels speed up the exfoliation process, encouraging cell turnover that leaves the skin looking fresh and healthy. The result is exfoliation after a treatment, often seen in the form of peeling or flaking that lasts a couple days.

Ingredients in the peel solution are also working to create new cells that function properly, not only visibly but correcting from within.
