Preparation For A PCA Professional Treatment

Using PCA Skin daily care products before your peel will prepare your skin, reduce the risk of complications and typically lead to better treatment results.

If you are lactating, pregnant or may be pregnant, only a select number of PCA Skin treatments are appropriate. Consult your OB/GYN before receiving a treatment.

Do not go to a tanning bed two weeks before a treatment. This practice should be discontinued altogether due to the increased risk of skin cancer and accelerated visible aging.

It is recommended that extended sun exposure be avoided, especially in the 10 days before your treatment.

It is recommended to delay use of Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Tazorac, Avage, EpiDuo, Ziana, and high percentage alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and beta hydroxy acid (BHA) products for approximately five days before treatment. Consult your physician before temporarily discontinuing the use of any prescription medications.
