Chemical Peels in Vancouver WA

Chemical peels are among the most effective nonsurgical treatments for addressing anti-aging concerns and common skin conditions. 

What are chemical & skin peels?

Chemical peels are a powerful skin-resurfacing procedure in which a solution is applied to the skin to peel away and exfoliate damaged cells—revealing smoother, more radiant skin underneath. Chemical peels are among the most effective nonsurgical treatments for addressing anti-aging concerns and common skin conditions. With our non-invasive chemical peels in Vancouver WA, you’ll see a reduction in acne scars, wrinkles, reduction of enlarged pores and much more.

While there is visible improvement in your skin after one peel, best results. At Complexions Vancouver MedSpa, we provide two categories of non-invasive chemical peels: superficial peels for gentle treatment and medium peels for more intensive care targeting deeper scars and wrinkles.

Complexions Medspa proudly offers a variety of skin peels from PCA Skin, the VI Peel from Vitality Institute, and the PRX Derm Perfection peel (formerly PRX-T33). During your consultation we’ll go over a skin assessment and provide the best options for your skin type.

Types of chemical peel depths

In the world of chemical peels, the depth of the peel—superficial, or medium—is determined by the specific chemical used, its concentration, and how long it is left on the skin.

Superficial peels

Superficial peels, also known as light peels or lunchtime peels, are great for exfoliating the outermost layer of the epidermis, removing dead and damaged skin cells and refreshing the look of it. These peels are ideal for sensitive and acne-prone skin.

Medium-depth peels

Medium-depth peels penetrate more deeply into the dermis layer. This can help improve the look and feel of your skin, treating wrinkles, shrinking enlarged pores, reversing signs of aging, skin pigmentation, and sun damage. These peels are also successful at improving acne scars and breakouts.

With our chemical peel treatments, we offer customized solutions that’ll fit your needs. If you’re not sure which depth is right for you, our clinicians are more than happy to help you learn more.

PCA Peel

PCA Peels are advanced chemical peels that use specially formulated solutions by PCA SKIN® to address a variety of skin concerns effectively. These peels are designed to be less harsh than traditional chemical peels, allowing for more frequent application without significant downtime. PCA Peels can be tailored to treat issues like acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles, making them a versatile option for achieving clearer, more radiant skin. They are also well-suited for sensitive skin types and can be customized for different skin tones and conditions.

How long does a PCA Peel Last?

There are a few factors that will determine how long a PCA peel can last. Firstly, you have your depth level for the treatment; medium depth treatments will last several months to a year, whereas superficial levels will last several months. The second most important factor in increasing the longevity of PCA peel benefits are your post treatment/after care. Taking care of your face with daily routines at home in addition to ongoing treatments are recommended as they can keep your skid looking healthier.

What to Expect During a Chemical Peel:

1. We will gently cleanse your face with PCA facial wash to remove any traces of makeup, moisturizer, sunscreen, etc. We will then use a PCA toner to prepare your skin for the treatment. Your advanced aesthetician will begin by applying the peel over your skin. After three passes over the skin, the peel will have been successfully applied.

2. Hydrating serum will be applied to the treated area to help the skin recover. You will be given a series of instructions on how to care for your skin over the coming week. Following the aftercare instructions will be important to ensure effectiveness of the peel.

3. Your skin will potentially peel over the following 3 to 5 days. It is important to avoid picking at possible flaky skin. We will offer you a complimentary post-care kit for 3-5 days to ensure you have everything to care for your skin after your treatment. You will want to avoid direct sunlight for 1–2 weeks and avoid letting your skin becoming too warm such as in hot showers, steam rooms, saunas, or excessive exercise.
