Myth: You have to peel with a professional peel.
It is not necessary to see visible peeling with a professional peel. Improvements in the texture, tone and overall appearance of the skin take place whether or not peeling occurs. Those who receive treatments on a regular basis may not see visible peeling because the layers of dead skin cells are at a healthy number. Think of peeling like a side effect. For example, a side effect of Benadryl is drowsiness, but the purpose of taking it is to control a histamine response. PCA SKIN® professional peels and professional treatments are performed by PCA Certified Professionals and are trained in their safe and effective application. The type of peel and the number of layers you receive during your treatment are determined by your professional based on the current health of your skin. This way, you will experience little to no downtime following a peel, yet still achieve outstanding results.
