A chemical peel is a procedure where a chemical solution is applied to the skin causing it to exfoliate and ultimately peel off. The new skin below will appear brighter and smoother. Chemical peels are effective treatments for acne, sun damage and fine lines. Whether you are a teenager with acne or an adult with rosacea or concerned about discoloration and fine lines, a chemical peel is a safe and efficient way to treat those conditions. For the procedure, an acid is applied to the skin causing controlled and uniform damage to the superficial skin cells which then slough off and reveal the clearer, smoother skin. At Gerson Zatezalo Skin + Face we use only PCA Skin® chemical peels which is a professional line of treatment products that can only be found in PCA Skin Certified Professionals’ offices. Our PCA Peel® line includes TCA and lactic blended peels, retinoid peels and Jessner’s peels which contain a combination of lactic acid, salicylic acid, kojic acid, citric acid and resorcinol. In addition, we use specialized PCA serums in conjunction with the peels to address specific skin concerns from acne to brown spots.
