Complexion’s Med Spa offers medical grade chemical peels as quick and convenient ways to enhance appearance and self confidence, and get a healthy glow with minimal downtime.
Chemical Peels have been used for decades to revitalize and resurface skin. They involve applying a chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of skin and reveal a younger, clearer, more radiant complexion. Chemical peels, also known as “Lunchtime Peels” are traditionally performed on the face, hands, neck, back and shoulders, legs and other problem areas to treat fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and skin discoloration.

PCA Professional products family of superficial chemical peels offers a wide variety of benefits to treat all skin types and conditions. These advanced solutions combine exfoliating acids, tyrosianase inhibitors, and skin strengthening agents to provide maximum benefits, minimal discomfort and little down time. When these types of ingredients are combined, they have synergistic effect that will desalinate the surface of the skin while simultaneously helping to minimize fine lines and wrinkles and even the skin tone. These solutions are layered dependent and do not require timing and/or neutralization. By applying multiple layers during the same treatment, varying superficial depths can be achieved according to the needs and goals of the individual.
These patented and proven light-to-medium depth peel formulas effectively exfoliate, bleach and inhibit pigment production. Formulations containing high concentrations of salicylic acid help slough off dead cells and debris while stimulating the skin’s natural renewal process. These peels 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:
This peel is ideal for more sensitive skin types (ethnic skin) or those allergic to hydroquinone. This peel will help to 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.
This formula is for those who want even skin tone and have no sensitivity to hydroquinone. It will also help to correct melasma, 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.
This peel is the most potent formula of the PCA Peel® treatments. It will provide more exfoliation for oilier, thicker and resilient skin types. It is effective on extremely sun damaged and thickened skin. It is also excellent for those with active/cystic acne and asphyxiated skin (dry on the surface, oily underneath).
Specially formulated to treat dehydrated, maturing skin, Ultra Peel® I is appropriate for all skin types, conditions and sensitivities. Ultra Peel I will also help treat smokers skin, pigment disorders, sun damaged skin and acne. The treatment is especially ideal for sensitive skin, as it produces only a mild tingling sensation. Moderate to aggressive exfoliation will be experienced, depending on the number of layers applied. Overall, the final result will be plump, hydrated and ultra-soft skin.
Ultra Peel® II may be used alone or on top of any other PCA peel, producing a lightening, tightening and brightening effect. It is a cream mask containing natural hormones which plump, hydrate and moisturize aging skin. The vitamin A content helps increase cell turnover to keep skin looking fresh, while vitamin C strengthens the skin by helping to increase the skins collagen and elastin network. Ultra Peel® II works well on all skin types and conditions.
Sensi Peel® was formulated primarily for all sensitive skin types. The solution contains a blend of L-lactic acid and trichloroacetic acid (TCA) in addition to plant-derived progesterone precursors which leave the skin feeling plump and hydrated. Kojic and azelaic acids also provide anti-acne and antibacterial properties. It targets patients that want gradual lightening, but instant tightening. Sensi Peel® is excellent for helping to calm rosacea, as redness and inflammation subside substantially after treatment.
PCA Professional™ Pumpkin Peel Treatment is a powerful antioxidant treatment that brightens and rejuvenates the skin. Pumpkin contains the highest concentration of salicylic acid of any plant, which provides the Pumpkin Peel Treatment with potent skin smoothing and pore clearing action. It also offers more than 100 beneficial components including the highest concentration of vitamins A, C and beta-carotene found in any other fruit or vegetable.
The treatment has simultaneous actions; it exfoliates and draws impurities out of the skin while introducing vitamins, enzymes and nutrients into the skin. This is an excellent treatment for smokers as it stimulates circulation, promotes healing and provides vitamin nutrition. This treatment is also great for smoothing the skin, as the naturally occurring salicylic acid in pumpkin removes the dead surface cells that cause rough texture. The skin will have a healthy glow following this treatment.
The Oxygenating Facial Trio is an antioxidant therapy designed to correct and prevent free radical damage. Oxidative and environmental damage is one of the more significant contributors to the aging process. The Oxy Facial Trio helps stimulate respiration and circulation within the skin. It promotes healing and rejuvenates sluggish, tired skin depleted by toxins, pollutants, allergens, improper diet and solar damage. Acneic conditions also benefit greatly as bacteria responsible for acne cannot live in the presence of oxygen. This treatment is recommended between peel treatments or when exfoliation or flaking is not desired.
Ideal before a special event, the Oxygenating Facial Trio is an active treatment that draws oxygen to the skins surface, producing a rosy flush and a rapid warming sensation.
Esthetique Peel is effective for treating all skin types and conditions, and is perfectly suited for extra-sensitive skin including rosacea. Its advanced formulation of L-ascorbic and L-lactic acids, L-retinol, and a host of polyphenols, antioxidants, vitamins and humectants, smoothes, tightens and improves the texture of the skin, while helping to correct myriad common skin concerns.
Clarifying Masks blend of 20% salicylic acid with natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agents makes this an ideal choice for helping to improve acne, breakout prone skin and sluggish, dull complexions. It brings new brightness and freshness to the skin. Clarifying Mask is appropriate for all skin types except for hypersensitive conditions.
Appropriate for oily skin and/or acne. The addition of natural glycolic acid from rhubarb makes it especially effective for treating anyone with excessive oil production. This treatment is appropriate until oil production is under control. Detox Gel for Normal/Sensitive Skin may be applied thereafter.
Appropriate for breakout prone skin and mild acne, and may be used on all skin types. The addition of natural L-lactic acid makes this a great treatment for improving skin texture and clarity, while keeping the skin moist and hydrated. This treatment is a gentle, deep-pore cleanser.
