PCA Skin: NoPeel®

PCA Skin NoPeel® exfoliating acids remove impurities on the surface and upper layers of the skin to promote a clear complexion. This peel also features calming, reparative, and hydrating ingredients to help mitigate irritation when it’s applied to the skin.

PCA Skin NoPeel®: Perfect for Sensitive Skin

PCA Skin’s NoPeel® Peel is highly effective, yet gentler on the skin than most traditional TCA and Jessner’s peels, making it the perfect “entry-level” or “in-between” peel treatment.

Experience gentle exfoliation with no expected visible peeling or downtime with this universal professional peel.

  • Promotes gentle exfoliation
  • Helps smooth skin and boost brightness 
  • Promotes skin renewal and a more even skin tone
  • Removes impurities and decongests pores

Without:

  • Expected visible peeling* 
  • Sensations and irritation during treatment** 
  • Inflammation and visible redness post-treatment

* When pre-treatment protocols are followed. Light flaking may present in some individuals post-treatment if the skin has been exposed to harsh environmental stressors, retinoids, products with high percentages of AHAs/BHAs, or other factors.
**Typically associated with professional peel treatments.

PCA SKIN PEELS
FAQ

We recommend that each patient work with our skincare professional to work out a regular schedule for PCA peels. In general, refreshing your skin every 4-6 weeks is recommended. Remember that it is important to wait until your skin has fully healed before undergoing another peel.

We recommend you wait at least 4 hours prior to washing your face, or if you have no makeup on, you may go to bed without any cleansing.

PCA-treated areas take about 7-14 days to heal.

Most PCA SKIN peels are self-neutralizing treatments. This means they can be layered and left on your skin. The use of water or a comparable neutralizing substance is not needed.

Apply a thicker moisturizer at night and throughout the day as required to keep your skin moist. Peeling should be complete in 7-14 days.

PCA SKIN® superficial peels result in little to no downtime but create dramatic and visible results. PCA Treatments can cause slight redness, tightness, peeling, flaking, or temporary dryness. Most patients find it unnecessary to apply makeup, as the skin will be smooth, dewy, and radiant following your treatment.

The peeling phase usually lasts 3-5 days. Use of gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen is important, as it will enhance the healing process and results. Normal activity may be resumed after the peel. However, strenuous exercise and heavy sweating should be avoided for 2-3 days after the procedure.

PCA Skin products are scientifically formulated to gently stimulate, firm, and tighten skin with little or no recovery time.

Your skin’s layers need to peel away to reveal the new healthy skin underneath. Be careful not to over-moisturize as it can prevent those layers from peeling off. To get the full benefits of the PCA peel, you want to allow these skin layers to shed and peel off on their own.

We recommend that you wait at least 48 to 72 hours after your peel to apply makeup.

PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

  • Positive: Cleanliness ,  Professionalism ,  Punctuality Easy to book online. Seamless appointment and did not feel rushed. Tonya explained thoroughly and made sure i had the best results for botox and minimizing my frown line. Highly recommend!

    Karen Avatar Karen

    Tonya is amazing!! She made me feel so comfortable and really listened to my concerns about my skin. She really cares and knows what she is doing. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!! I was concerned my first appointment but I just had my third and I can say it’s so worth it!!! Botox has been an incredible experience and I’m so happy to have tried it, I’m so much happier with my appearance and it looks incredibly natural. I’ve included before and after photos, neither photo is filtered or edited, you can see how makeup would collect in my forehead, and how the after it’s smooth and looks so lovely. It doesn’t feel weird or like I can’t move my muscles at all, it feels super natural. One of my biggest concerns was that I wouldn’t be able to emote with Botox but that’s just not true at all. I feel so confident and that is thanks to Tonya!

PCA SKIN PEELS
PROCEDURE PREP

Before your treatment session, our physician will discuss what to expect during your treatment. However, it is helpful to remember that there are a few things to take into consideration before your session:

  • At least three to four days before your procedure, discontinue anti-inflammatory medications.
  • One to two weeks before your procedure, discontinue any blood-thinning herbs, supplements, or vitamins.
  • One to two weeks before your procedure, discontinue systematic steroids
  • At least one month before your procedure, stop steroid injections
  • On the day of your procedure, eat a full, healthy breakfast and be sure to drink plenty of water
  • Please be advised that if you take chronic oral steroids, a discontinuation plan will need to be discussed with your primary care provider as abrupt stoppage may cause side effects.

PCA SKIN PEELS
AFTERCARE

After your treatment session, we recommend that all patients rest on the day of their procedure. We advise limited use of the treatment area for the next two days, but movement is encouraged. Limited use helps the joint recover as the treatment is absorbed by the area’s surrounding tissues.

0 – 3 days post-procedure guidelines

  • After your treatment, there is a chance you’ll experience some mild to moderate pain or discomfort at the treatment site. Discomfort is normal, and it is a sign that your body is healing as it adjusts to the treatment.
  • It is best to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water to help promote healing.
  • You mustn’t take ANY medications following your procedure unless specifically directed otherwise by a physician. NO medicine is a must because any drug can affect the healing process or other adverse effects.

Therefore, discontinue use of any of these medications post-procedure for best results:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications for at least two weeks post-procedure
  • Blood-thinning herbs, supplements, or vitamins for 3-4 days post-procedure
  • Systemic steroids for two weeks post-procedure
  • Other important guidelines to follow after your procedure are:
  • Avoid applying ice or heat to the injection site for the first 72 hours post-procedure
  • Don’t take a hot bath or go to a sauna for the first few days post-procedure
  • Avoid consumption of any alcoholic beverages for the first week post-procedure
  • Avoid showering for the first 24 hours following your procedure
  • Limit caffeine consumption for the first week post-procedure
  • Avoid smoking

3 – 14 days post-procedure guidelines

  • At this point in your healing, you should gradually increase your daily activities.
  • 3 to 14 days is also when you can begin exercises. Proper exercise is a vital part of long-term results, and we can help you determine which exercises are best suited for your needs before your procedure.
  • Ice can be applied 3-4 times a day for 15-20 minutes as needed for comfort
  • Anti-inflammatory medications (such as Tylenol) can be taken to help manage any residual pain at this time, take as directed
  • Continue to avoid alcoholic beverages, smoking, or excessive amounts of caffeine

3 – 4 weeks post-procedure guidelines

  • We highly encourage you to begin physical therapy to aid in your long-term healing and continued recovery at this point in your healing.
  • A follow-up appointment will be made for you to meet with our physician to review your healing process. You must keep this follow-up visit even if your recovery is going well.
  • If there are any adjustments to your customized treatment plan, this is when our physician will be able to make those decisions.
