Transforming skin with science that is beyond skin deep

Allowing patients to continue their skin transformation at home is critical to patient satisfaction. That’s why it is important to integrate professional, in-office treatments with daily at-home products. PCA SKIN® (Scottsdale, Ariz.), creator of the modified and enhanced Jessner’s Peel, has been doing this for 30 years, empowering physicians to continue improving the lives of their patients.

As leaders in professional chemical peel treatments, PCA SKIN has combined in- office treatments with a wide range of advanced daily care products for proven results. With the introduction of their new, first-of-its-kind MD Peel (CCl3), along with their improved Sensi and Ultra Peels (all three formulated with trichloroacetic and lactic acids), the company continues to elevate the professional chemical peel industry with renewed focus on product innovation, education and unparalleled customer support.

PCA SKIN has renovated the popular Sensi and Ultra Peels based on the latest and most advanced science and research. With a new delivery method and the inclusion of new antioxidants, these improved formulations are more stable, ensuring superior efficacy and transformative results with no downtime required.

Suneel Chilukuri, MD, of Refresh Dermatology in Houston, Texas, enjoys the ability to treat nearly all of his patients with PCA SKIN peels. “Both my team and I appreciate that PCA SKIN’s self-neutralizing formulas adhere to a layer-and-leave-on treatment technique to ensure complete control over the strength and depth of the peel,” he expressed. “I also love their peels because they can be customized to treat all patients’ needs and they pair well with other treatments I offer in my practice, like filler or lasers.”

PCA SKIN’s versatile chemical peel portfolio ensures the physician can offer a wide range of treatments for conditions such as rosacea, acne, hyperpigmentation, lines and wrinkles. Furthermore, the new Sensi and Ultra Peel formulas include the addition of alpha-lipoic acid, emblica and silymarin to protect patients’ skin during treatment and while the skin recovers.

“Sensi Peel is a great option for all Fitzpatrick skin types and is my go-to peel option for patients with sensitive skin, including rosacea and eczema-prone skin, and first- time peel patients,” Dr. Chilukuri explained. “Ultra Peel is a slightly stronger formula, and while still quite versatile, I like to use it for patients with maturing skin who are concerned with typical signs of aging.”

In February 2020 PCA SKIN kicks off their 30-year anniversary with the launch of their new, medium-depth TCA peel, MD Peel (CCl3). Ideal for those with resilient skin, it is a physician-only treatment that will rejuvenate skin by treating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as helping patients achieve a beautifully even skin tone.

Dr. Chilukuri is ready to offer his patients this service and shared, “I personally will be using the new MD Peel for those patients with more severe sun damage as it is a true medium-depth peel.”

PCA SKIN’s comprehensive range of chem- ical peels allow physicians and aestheticians to customize treatment for patients with all skin types and concerns. With three decades of focus and expertise in skin transformation, PCA SKIN has been a leading and trusted innovator of skincare backed by holistic science, with solutions that are as unique as each patient.
