PCA SKIN® Peels at Omniya

Our professional peel solutions effectively exfoliate dead skin cells to reveal fresh, healthy skin underneath without much shedding. Depending on your skin type and concerns, our aesthetician will recommend appropriate treatments to boost cell turnover, bringing new skin cells to the surface and reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and breakouts. Our Senior Skin Specialists, trained and certified by PCA SKIN®, ensure you receive the highest standard of care and achieve the most effective results at our London clinic.

Why PCA SKIN® Peels?

We offer bespoke PCA SKIN® peel treatments tailored to your unique skin needs, regardless of your skin type and Fitzpatrick level. Here are some key benefits:

Suitable for Sensitive Skin
PCA SKIN® offers a peel suitable for sensitive skin, providing gentle yet effective medical-grade exfoliation without expected peeling or downtime. These peels detoxify pores and promote skin renewal, resulting in a smoother, brighter complexion.

Pigment Correction
PCA SKIN® peels effectively treat hyperpigmentation, melasma, acne scars, and sun damage on all skin types. You can see up to a 17% improvement after just one treatment, with noticeable results as early as 7 days post-treatment.

Acne and Breakouts
For those struggling with acne and breakouts, PCA SKIN® peels help reduce sebum production, minimise pore size, and prevent hormonal breakouts. These treatments clear up blackheads and other blemishes, leaving the skin clearer and more balanced.

The peels address signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles. By promoting collagen production and improving skin texture, they help you achieve a more youthful, revitalised appearance. Key ingredients like Resveratrol, an antioxidant that reduces inflammation and stimulates collagen production, and Grapefruit extract, an antioxidant that protects epidermal stem cells from damage, enhance the anti-ageing effects of our treatments.

What are the differences between home and medical-grade acid peels?

Home peels are generally milder, providing surface-level exfoliation suitable for regular maintenance. Medical grade acid peels, like PCA SKIN® peels, offer deeper exfoliation, effectively targeting specific skin concerns such as acne, pigmentation, and ageing.

Are PCA SKIN® peels painful?

Most PCA SKIN® peels cause minimal discomfort. You may experience a mild tingling or warm sensation during the treatment, but this typically subsides quickly.

Do dermatologists recommend acid peels?

Yes, many dermatologists recommend acid peels for their effectiveness in addressing a variety of skin concerns. They are a trusted treatment for improving skin texture, tone, and overall appearance.

How many treatments do you need to see results?

Visible results can often be seen after just one peel, with improvements in skin texture and clarity. However, regular treatments every 2-4 weeks are typically recommended for achieving optimal and long-lasting results. Your aesthetician will create a personalised treatment schedule tailored to your specific needs and skincare goals.

How long do the results of a PCA SKIN® peel last?

The results of a PCA SKIN® peel can last from several weeks to months, vary by your skin type, the specific peel used, and your skincare routine. Regular maintenance treatments can help extend and sustain these benefits.

How many days does it take to heal from a PCA SKIN® peel?

Healing times vary, but most people experience minimal downtime. Flaking or shedding can occur for 2-5 days, and in some cases, up to 7 days.

What are the pre-treatment and post-treatment advice?

Pre-treatment: Avoid sun exposure and discontinue the use of retinoids and exfoliants a few days before the peel.
Post-treatment: Use gentle skincare products, avoid direct sunlight, and apply sunscreen regularly to protect the skin.

Are PCA SKIN® peels suitable for sensitive skin?

Yes, PCA SKIN® offers peels specifically formulated for sensitive skin, providing gentle yet effective medical-grade exfoliation without expected peeling or downtime.

How do PCA SKIN® peels help with acne?

PCA SKIN® peels reduce sebum production, minimise pore size, and prevent hormonal breakouts. These treatments also help clear blackheads and other blemishes, leaving the skin clearer and more balanced.

Can PCA SKIN® peels treat hyperpigmentation and melasma?

Yes, PCA SKIN® peels are highly effective in improving hyperpigmentation and melasma. This chemical peel for hyperpigmentation works by exfoliating the skin and promoting the turnover of pigmented cells.

How do PCA SKIN® peels address signs of ageing?

They promote collagen production, improve skin texture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Key ingredients like Resveratrol and Grapefruit extract enhance the anti-ageing effects by reducing inflammation and protecting epidermal skin cells.

Are PCA SKIN® peels safe for all skin types?

Yes, PCA SKIN® peels are designed to be safe and effective for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Each peel is formulated to address specific concerns without causing undue irritation.

Can I use PCA SKIN® peels if I have active acne?

Yes, for mild and moderate acne, PCA SKIN® peels can help clear active acne and prevent future breakouts. They reduce sebum production and exfoliate the skin, helping to clear clogged pores and reduce inflammation and resulting in a clearer skin. For more severe acne, we recommend speaking to our skin specialists to find the most appropriate treatments for your skin.

Will my skin peel after a PCA SKIN® peel treatment?

Some clients experience mild flaking or shedding after treatment, which is a normal part of the exfoliation process. This typically lasts for a few days and reveals fresher, healthier skin underneath.

How does a PCA SKIN® peel work as a melasma treatment?

PCA SKIN® peels work as an effective melasma treatment by exfoliating the skin and reducing the appearance of dark patches through the action of targeted ingredients.

What is better, laser or chemical peel for melasma?

Both laser treatments and chemical peels can be effective for melasma. PCA SKIN® chemical peels, specifically formulated for hyperpigmentation, can provide significant improvement by exfoliating the skin and promoting cell turnover. 

Lasers might offer faster results for some, but chemical peels are often gentler and can be a preferred option for sensitive skin. We recommend speaking to our skin specialists to find the most appropriate treatments for your skin.

Are there any side effects of a PCA SKIN® peel?

Common side effects may include mild redness, tingling, and flaking. These are typically temporary and subside within a few days, revealing smoother and clearer skin.

What makes PCA SKIN® peels different from other acid peels in London?

PCA SKIN® peels stand out due to their innovative formulations, customised treatment options, and effectiveness in addressing a wide range of skin concerns with minimal discomfort and downtime.
