Please note: the following is provided for informational purposes only. Skin by A2 MedSpa believes that our clients should be well informed prior to undergoing any treatment. Plan to discuss treatment options with your provider, understanding that their recommendations are based on skin type, your expected treatment outcome, and the overall health of your skin prior to treatment.
Trichoroaceitic acid (TCA): TCA can be used in may concentrations but it is most commonly used for medium-depth peeling. Fine and medium surface wrinkles, superficial blemishes and pigment problems are commonly treated with TCA. There is a longer healing time associated with deeper peels, but the improvements in the skin appearance and wrinkle reduction is higher.
The TCA peels, with some exceptions for superficial peel protocols, can only be performed by a physician or under a physician's license by a trained professional.
PCA Peel ® Exfoliating Treatments: These patented and proven superficial peel formulas effectively exfoliate, lighten and inhibit pigment production. They help repair and reduce breakouts, control oil, soften lines and provide a more even, smooth skin texture. PCA Peel ® exfoliating treatments are available in the following three formulas:
PCA Peel ® HQ Free (non-resorcinol) Exfoliating Treatment: This peel is ideal for more sensitive skin types (ethnic skin) or those allergic to hydroquinone. This peel will help unclog pores, clear acne and rejuvenate the skin. It is also an excellent choice for maintaining even pigmentation and correcting pigment discolorations for those with hydroquinone sensitivities.
PCA Peel ® with Hydroquinone (non-resorcinol) Exfoliating Treatment: This formula is for those who want even skin tone and have no sensitivity to hydroquinone. It will also help to lighten melasma (dark skin discoloration that appears on sun-exposed areas of the face), sun damage and pigment discolorations of any kind. In addition, this peel will inhibit active acne and correct post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (brown-spotting) from acne.
PCA Peel ® with Hydroquinone & Resorcinol Exfoliating Treatment: This peel is the most potent formula of the PCA Peel ® treatments. It will provide more exfoliation for oiler, thicker and resilient skin types. It is effective on extremely sun damaged and thickened skin. It is also excellent for those with active/cyst acne and asphyxiated skin (dry on the surface, oily underneath).
Ultra Peel ® I and II Exfoliating Treatments: Ultra Peel ® exfoliating treatments are appropriate for all skin types, conditions and sensitivities. These treatments are especially ideal for sensitive skin, as they produce a reduced stoning sensation. Ultra Peel ® treatments will help treat acne, pigment disorders, aging skin, menopausal skin, smoker's skin and sun damaged skin. Moderate to aggressive exfoliation will be experienced, depending on the number of layers of Ultra Peel ® I exfoliating treatment that are applied. Overall, the final result will be plump, hydrated and ultra soft skin. Ultra Peel ® II exfoliating treatment may be used alone or on top of any other Physician's Choice ® peel, producing a lightening, tightening and brightening effect. It is a cream mask containing natural hormones and vitamins to provide freshening and moisturizing properties to aging skin. These natural hormones make this peel great for males as well as females, as it helps to counterbalance testosterone levels that create frequent breakouts during teenage years.
Sensi Peel ® Exfoliating Treatment: Sensi Peel ® exfoliating treatment was formulated primarily for Asian skin as well as all other extremely sensitive skin types. The solution contains a blend of L-lactic acid and trichloroacetic acid (TCA). Plant-derived progesterone leaves the skin feeling plump and hydrated. The Sensi Peel ® exfoliating treatment is formulated with L-ascorbic acid for strengthening and brightening, while L-arbutin and Kojic acid help treat hyperpigmentation and sun damage. the Kojic acid, as well as azelaic acid provide anti-acne and antibacterial properties to the solution. The Sensi Peel ® exfoliating treatment is excellent for calming rosacea, as redness and inflammation subside substantially after treatment.
Pumpkin Peel Beta-C Mask Treatment: The Physician's Choice ® Pumpkin Peel Beta-C Mask Treatment is a powerful antioxidant keratolytic treatment that can serve as an alternate between other peels. Its main source of nutrition, pumpkin, offers more than 100 beneficial components, including the highest concentration of natural vitamins A, C and beta-carotene. The Pumpkin Peel has simultaneous actions; it exfoliates and draws impurities out of the skin while introducing vitamins, enzymes and nutrients into the skin. It is an excellent treatment for smokers as it stimulates circulation, promotes healing and provides vitamin nutrition. This treatment is also excellent for mouthing the skin as salicylic acid removes the dead cells that cause a rough texture. As with all other PCA treatments, there is no "downtime". In fact, the skin will be glowing and extremely healthy-looking following the treatment.
Esthetique Peel: The Esthetique Peel is an advanced formulation of L-ascorbic, L-lactic and L-retinol with a host of polyphenols, antioxidants, vitamins and humectants. It smoothes, tightens and improves the texture of the skin, while also helping to correct a variety of common skin concerns. The Esthetique Peel is effective for improving all skin types and conditions. Perfectly suited for extra-sensitive skin, including rosacea. The results are exciting!
Clarifying Mask: Clarifying Mask's blend of 20 percent salicylic acid with natural and antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agents makes this an ideal choice for helping to improve acne, breakout prone skin and even sluggish and dull complexions. It brings new clarity and freshness to the skin. Clarifying Mask is appropriate for all skin types except for hypersensitive conditions.
Detox Gel for Oily/Problem Skin: The Detox Gel's low percentage (1.5%) of naturally sourced glycol acid helps to degrease excessively oily skin. This formulation containing hydrogen peroxide, salicylic acid and aloe smoothes the skin's surface, minimizes breakouts and kills bacteria.
Detox Gel for Normal/Sensitive Skin: The Detox Gel for Normal/Sensitive Skin is formulated with naturally sourced L-lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, salicylic acid and aloe to keep the surface of the skin smooth, yet hydrated. This option allows for antibacterial, mouthing action without the dehydration that may occur with extended use of glycolic acid.
