Chemical Peels: What is the difference?
Are you looking for a non-surgical procedure that will make your skin look and feel as it once did? The Choe Center for Facial Plastic Surgery offers several chemical peels which are excellent for exfoliating the skin and making it smooth and radiant. For instance, the Sensi-Peel® is gentle enough for any type of skin or skin condition. Consisting of 12% L-Lactic Acid, 6% TCA, along with Kojic Acid and Vitamin C as lightening agents, the Sensi-Peel® is gentle and there is little or no downtime with this product.
The PCA® Peel is a patented and successful light to medium peel which contains 14% Lactic Acid, 14% Salicylic Acid and 14% Resorcinal. This is known in the industry as a modified Jessner’s solution.
This peel is ideal for treating uneven skin texture and pigmentation, acne, oily skin, wrinkles and ethnic skin. It can be used with or without the extra ingredient hydroquinone. This treatment takes approximately sixty minutes.
The Vivité® Glycolic Peel is a peel that is the right one for damaged or wrinkled skin. While its glycolic compound provides optimal exfoliation, natural antioxidants are added to protect the epidermal cells. Conditions that this peel is commonly used for include facial scars, uneven pigmentation, and fine lines around the eyes and mouth. The result is smoother and healthier looking skin.
PCA® Oxy-Trio Peel is formulated to prevent and correct damage due to free radicals. The combination of Glycolic, Lactic and Salicylic Acids works to stimulate the skin’s circulation, which results in returning sluggish and stressed skin back to its former healthy, radiant appearance.
These chemical peels are not the same as our TCA Peel, which is a much higher concentration and must be administered by a licensed medical doctor.
