How can I get rid of brown spots?

Have you ever wished you could get rid of those pesky brown spots on your skin and restore the clear, youthful complexion you once had.  The secret to getting rid of brown spots lies with chemical peels.

What causes brown spots?

Brown spots on the skin are most often a sign of sun damage, because they usually show up in areas that are constantly exposed to sunlight, such as the hands, face, and arms.  Too much sun can cause the skin to produce excess melanin (pigment that gives skin its color), causing it to darken in different areas.  

What is a chemical peel?

A chemical peel is a versatile skin rejuvenation treatment that treats a variety of skin concerns by removing the damaged outermost layer of skin.  Peels can be superficial, medium, or deep, depending on the condition being treated. 

Treating brown spots with a chemical peel

Chemical peels are aesthetic treatments in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin, to strip away the outermost layer of dry, dull skin cells.  The skin eventually peels off, revealing clearer, smoother skin. 

PCA Skin has formulated a peel solution that contains alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs).  AHAs such as glycolic acid, lactic acid, and citric acid, are very effective for removing brown spots, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

How many chemical peels do I need to see results?

A course of 4-6 treatments is normally recommended to remove brown spots.  Sessions are spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
