SKIN PEELS - PCA Skin, GMC Medical
You may have heard of them before. Perhaps have seen TV show interpretations of skin peels and are now a bit trepidatious about having one yourself. Don’t be. And we’ll tell you why.
First and foremost, Mezz Spa will arrange a complimentary skin consultation prior to all peel treatments to determine if peels are appropriate for you and if so, which type would best benefit your skin needs.
What is a skin peel?
Mezz Spa’s peel technique involves applying a natural peeling product or solution which effectively removes the damaged outer layers of skin.
Why are peels beneficial?
Peels improve the overall appearance of the skin, targeting skin conditions such as:
hyper pigmentation / sun damage
During a peel, the exfoliating process stimulates cellular rejuvenation which improves the tone and texture of the skin, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, minimizes pore size and a produces a visibly more balanced complexion.
We recommend regular bi-weekly treatments to achieve the best results.

The retinol (vitamin A) content helps increase cell turnover to keep skin looking fresh, while vitamin C strengthens the skin by helping to increase the skin’s collagen and elastin network.

*Skin Peel Preparation and Tips
Preparation for a Peel or Treatment
We prefer that you use PCA SKIN daily care products prior to your peel, this will prepare the skin and allow for better treatment results and reduce the risk of complications. This is recommended not mandatory.
If you are lactating, pregnant or may be pregnant, only the Oxygenating Trio Treatment is appropriate.
DO NOT tan two weeks prior to treatment. It is recommended that extended exposure to the sun be avoided especially 10 days prior to treatment.
It is recommended that you delay use of Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, EpiDuoTM, Ziana and high-percentage AHA and BHA products for approximately 3 days prior to treatment.
POST - Treatment Tips
After receiving a PCA SKIN professional Treatment you should not necessarily expect to "peel", a light sloughing (light flaking) in a few localized areas for 3 to 5 days and residual redness for approximately one to 12 hours post treatment or peel is possible.
As with all peels and treatments, it is recommended that makeup not be applied the day of the treatment, as it is ideal to allow the skin to stabilize and rest overnight; however, any mineral Makeup may be applied 30 minutes after the treatment if desired.
It is recommended that other topical, over the counter medications or AHA and BHA products not be applied to the skin for 5 days post procedures, as they may cause irritation.
It is recommended that you delay use of Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, EpiDuoTM, Ziana and high-percentage AHA and BHA products for approximately 3 days post-procedure.
Avoid all direct sun exposure and excessive heat. Use Perfecting Protection SPF 30, Hydrator Plus SPF 30, Protecting Hydrator SPF 30 or Active Very Water/Sweat Resistant SPF 45 for broad-spectrum UV protection DAILY.
Do not use a tanning bed for 2 weeks after a peel or treatment.
Do not pick or pull at loosening or peeling skin. This could potentially cause hyper pigmentation.
Do not have electrolysis, waxing, laser, sugaring, or the use of dilatory products on the treated area, for 7 days.
