Chemical Peels

 

Physcian's Choice of Arizona (PCA) Peels and Masks

We offer several different types of peels that work for all skin types. Our peels are designed and produced by Physician’s Choice of Arizona, Inc. (PCA) which is only available by licensed skin care professionals. The types of treatments are gentle, non-toxic light to medium range peels. These treatments help stimulate, firm and tighten the skin. Our wide range of patented peels are superficial chemical peels using alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s) to address a wide range of skin types and conditions. Alpha Hydroxy acids are “Naturally-occurring” acids, which mean they are found in nature. Physcian’s Choice of Arizona favor the use of lactic acid and citric acid over the other AHA’s as they are well received by the body and are nourishing. We combine several acids to complement one another for best results.
