What is a Chemical Peel?
Glowing, fresh skin is just minutes away.
Aging begins the moment we are born, and the passing years take a toll on our face in the form of lines, wrinkles, pigmented spots, acne, uneven texture, thinning, scarring and sun damage. Each of these conditions makes the face look older, tired and strained.
PCA Chemical Peels can restore your youthful and radiant appearance without burning or “down time”

What does a PCA Chemical Peel involve?
You need to arrive with a makeup free face. One of our licensed estheticians will cleanse your face for you before the treatment begins.
In preparation for your treatment, we will ask you to wear a top that leaves the face and neck exposed. To begin, we will cleanse your face with a gentle cleanser. Next, we will apply the solution with soft gauze to the selected areas. You may experience a warm feeling or slight stinging as the solution rejuvenates your skin.
After a few minutes, your technician will gently apply a hydrating, moisturizing lotion followed by SPF.

““My lashes have gotten thinner and more sparse. That’s why I asked my optometrist about LATISSE®, hoping that it would help my lashes grow.Now that my lashes are longer and darker, I’m doing more to draw attention to my eyes; I cut my hair shorter and I’m even wearing my contacts more just to show them off.” ”CINDY
““Being a blonde, I’ve always had light brown lashes with some blonde ones mixed in, which, as you can imagine, just disappeared on my face. They didn’t even show up in photographs! But since I have been using LATISSE®, my lashes are noticeably darker than my previous shade, which is fantastic! Without a doubt, I have become a believer in LATISSE®!” ”JENNY
“I have been seeing Cassie for over 2 years once a month! I had acne scars and a terrible complexion. I now can go out comfortably without feeling like I need to wear all the makeup! It’s incredible how much my skin has changed. I get compliments all the time! I wish I could see her every day.”Meg G
