Hi. Can PCA ultra peel forte be performed by an aesthetician? Or it can only be performed by a doctor? Thanks!

State to state regulations

In Australia, much like the US, each State has a different rule. Check with your States board. Concentration of peels, and types of lasers are also restricted. Generally, you will receive better results with a Specialist doctor than an aesthetician because we find a SOLUTION for your problem. In this case it may be a stronger peel, or a laser device. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane, Australia.

Check with your local regulatory board to answer this question.  In some jurisdictions aestheticians are regulated by the Board of Cosmetology.

Aesthetician or Cosmetic Dermatologist for Chemical Peel--Add Fillers, Lasers, Skin Tightening

I always recommend going to a cosmetic dermatologist. Chemical peel results can be maximized in combination with fillers, lasers, skin tightening (ultherapy), surgery, fat depending on your goals.  I suggest you see an expert to go through all the options. Dr. Emer.
