Most Commonly Asked Questions

How much downtime is expected with a peel?
There is no downtime whatsoever with Physician’s Choice™ chemical peels. You can actually receive a peel on your lunch hour and return to work.

When will I start "peeling", for how long and how much?
Everyone’s experience will be different. However, on an average, you will see flaking by day two or three following the treatment. It is possible to see flaking for up to five or six days. With all Physician’s Choice™ peels, only light to medium exfoliation will be experienced.

How irritating is a peel?
PCA peels are only slightly irritating. You may experience mild burning or stinging, which is transient.

What is the difference between the PCA Peel® versus the Ultra Peel™
The Ultra Peel™ is less sensitizing than the PCA Peel® due to the complexity of the formula. The PCA Peel® has more of a drying effect and the Ultra Peel™ has a more moisturizing effect. The PCA Peel® formulas have more instant lightening ability, whereas, the Ultra Peel™ lightening process is more gradual.

Why would Ultra Peel™ II be applied, and when?
Ultra Peel™ II will ensure more flaking and peeling post-treatment. It can be applied after any Physician’s Choice™ treatment or it can be very mild treatment used alone.

What peels can be used on someone who frequently works out?
Someone who frequently works out can have any peel but must wait 48 hours after the treatment to exercise. If you don’t want to wait, the Non-Burning Facial Peel is a great choice. This treatment uses our Ultra Peel™ II which is an acid-free, time-released retinol cream. It has a delayed flaking action that creates no irritation or downtime and leaves the skin glowing and hydrated.

My skin is very thin. Why would I want to peel? Wouldn’t that make my skin thinner?
If your skin is dry and thin, often there is a buildup of dead cells that actually keep your home care products from penetrating. Having an Ultra Peel™ treatment will remove the surface buildup, hydrate the skin and give it a more plump, "thicker" appearance. The use of Vitamin C products in the treatment, as well as in your home care program, will help to build the collagen in your skin, thus making it stronger and more durable.

Can someone use Retin-A® or Accutane® have any Physician’s Choice™ treatments?
We generally recommend that Retin-A® use is stopped five days prior to a peel and five days post treatment because of potential irritation and uneven peel penetration. Accutane® users tend to have very dry and sensitive skin and need to be treated only with peels that are appropriate for their skin type. We have found that the Physician’s Choice™ peel solutions are Accutane® friendly. However, your skin care specialist should always be made aware of any Retin-A® or Accutane® use.
