TCA Peels

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels are often thought of as very aggressive and producing substantial discomfort. PCA Professional TCA peels are very different from the standard. PCA’s TCA solutions are blends formulated with many ingredients including lactic acid, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), plumping  phytohormones, and kojic and azelaic acids to produce dramatic results without the discomfort and downtime associated with traditional TCA peels.

Sensi Peel will strengthen and brighten the skin while helping to treat sun damage and other forms of hyperpigmentation (skin discoloration). This multi-faceted treatment also provides anti-inflammatory, anti-acne, and antibacterial action, making it an excellent choice for helping calm rosacea, as redness and inflammation can subside substantially after treatment.

It will help treat smoker’s skin, pigment disorders, sun damaged skin, and acne. This treatment is especially ideal for sensitive skin, as it produces only a mild tingling sensation.
