The pumpkin peel treatment has simultaneous actions; it exfoliates and draws impurities out of the skin while introducing vitamins, enzymes and nutrients into the skin. This is an excellent treatment for smokers as it stimulates circulation, promotes healing, and provides vitamin nutrition. This treatment is also great for smoothing the skin, as the naturally occurring salicylic acid in pumpkin removes the dead surface cells that cause rough texture. The skin will have a healthy glow following this treatment.
Using alpha hydroxy acids derived from milk, this is a very mild peel with little to no recovery time. Because lactic acid is a natural human metabolite, there is less chance of an allergic reaction with this type of peel. Lactic acid peels help remove germs, dead cells, and toxins from the skin. Lactic acid peels are best for people who have very sensitive skin that might not be able to tolerate the slightly more intense glycolic acid peels. Although lactic acid peels are gentler, they usually provide many of the same benefits as the other peels, simply in a less intense way.
PCA Sensi Peel
The Sensi peel was formulated primarily for all sensitive skin types.

Kojic and azelaic acids also provide anti-acne and antibacterial properties. It targets patients that want gradual lightening, but instant tightening. Sensi Peel is excellent for helping to calm rosacea, as redness and inflammation subside substantially after treatment.

Most importantly, the Glutathione element defies the aging process.

Glutathione is proven to reverse the melanin’s metabolism, turning dark pigmentations (eumelanin) into light pigmentation (phaeomelanin).
