Chemical peels are a great way to resurface your skin and restore its natural suppleness, resulting in a healthy and younger-looking complexion. Cure Med Spa offers PCA and GlycoAla peels based on your unique skin type, conditions, and goals.
Resurface Healthier, Younger Skin
Chemical peels are an easy and popular way to refresh and rejuvenate your skin. This modern skin treatment involves applying a chemical solution to your face, exfoliating away the top layer of dead skin cells. This process helps to unclog pores, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and even out skin tone, leaving you with healthier, younger-looking skin. So, if you’re looking to liven up dull, aging skin, chemical peels are exactly what you need!
Benefits of Chemical Peels:
- Non-invasive skin rejuvenation
- Resurface smoother, healthier skin
- Remove dead and damaged skin cells
- Improve overall skin tone and texture
- Stimulate natural collagen production
- Personalized according to your skin type
- No harsh side effects or complications
- Resume your daily activities and work immediately
Your Chemical Peel Options
PCA is a specific brand of chemical peel for patients with acne breakouts, scarring, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and other signs of aging. PCA peels contain lactic acid and salicylic acid, which can remove the uppermost layers of dead and damaged skin cells without causing excessive damage. Some PCA peels also contain trichloroacetic acid (TCA), which can provide a deeper level of peeling.
GlycoAla is a unique skin rejuvenation procedure that uses a photodynamic gel to reverse the signs of aging. GlycoAla is a photodynamic gel made of hyaluronic acid and advanced glycosphere nanoparticles, so it can penetrate deep within the skin to reverse the signs of aging, improve overall skin texture, reduce sun damage, and hydrate your skin from within. GlycoAla is extremely gentle and causes minimal redness and side effects.

How Chemical Peels Work
Chemical peels involve applying a chemical solution to make the dead skin layers peel off, revealing a softer, smoother layer of skin underneath. Depending on the type of peel used, you may experience various degrees of peeling, ranging from mild to intense. Chemical peels trigger the skin’s natural healing process, including collagen production and cellular regeneration. Over time, the damaged skin cells are replaced by new, healthy skin cells.
Your Chemical Peels Experience
At your consultation, we’ll work together to determine the best approach for you. We’ll analyze your facial skin and conditions to assess your skin type and goals and then recommend the appropriate chemical peels — PCA or GlycoAla — that will best target your specific skin issues. We’ll give you all the information and support you need to make an informed decision and develop a plan for achieving your desired results.
Your chemical peel is administered by a trained professional in our medical spa. The medical provider will cleanse your facial skin to remove impurities and debris, following which they’ll apply the chosen peel to your face. The chemical peel is allowed to remain on your skin for a set amount of time, typically ranging from 10 to 20 minutes. Following that, the peel is neutralized or removed, and a cooling gel is applied to your skin.
You may experience mild redness, itching, or burning sensations after your treatment. These should improve within a few days, but the complete recovery will take some time. You can resume most of your normal activities immediately, but please avoid direct sunlight and strenuous workouts for a week. You must also use a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 50.
