Chemical Peels & Oxygenating Facials in Onion Creek
Our Oxygenating Facial stimulates and rejuvenates your skin by promoting oxygenation and circulation. It’s perfect for removing years of damage in an instant.
Chemical peels are available from our licensed Estheticians at our Onion Creek location. We use the latest medically and scientifically researched ingredients to rejuvenate tired-looking skin. Aging affects us all – leading to a decline in collagen after years of sun damage. The result is age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, facial veins, acne, large pores, and more.
We’ll customize your treatment after inspecting your skin. All our PCA SKIN’s products are medical grade – free from color additives, harsh alcohols, synthetic fragrances, and comedogenic oils. We only want to nourish, hydrate, and invigorate your skin.

A Thriving Part of Onion Creek
Onion Creek is a thriving, up and coming community in South Austin. It’s named after the babbling creek, which starts in Hays County and flows into the Colorado River. We’re proud to be a part of this thriving community of families and businesses – and we maintain friendly ties with all the local businesses in the area.
After completing your treatment, it’s always pleasant to take a wander by the nearby Sullivan Park. Indeed, the surrounding area is just outside the city’s bustling streets but still easy to access for all our clients in the South Austin locale.

Electrolysis in Onion Creek
Perfect for light-colored hair (blonde, red, and gray). Electrolysis works over multiple sessions removing all your unwanted hair permanently.
The technique has been around for over 100 years. It involves inserting a fine needle into the hair follicle and running an electric current down to destroy the follicle and surrounding tissue. You’ll need multiple treatments to target all the follicles (as some will be dormant during each treatment).
In our capable hands, electrolysis is highly effective. However, you’ll want to schedule a free consultation with our Onion Creek team to see if laser or electrolysis is best suited to remove your unwanted hair.

Frequently Asked Questions
If the hair you want to have treated for laser hair removal is dark in color & somewhat coarse you are a good candidate. In general, it needs to be light brown or darker in color. Our laser hair removal in Onion Creek will not work on blonde, grey, or red hair.
If you are pregnant we do not recommend treating with laser hair removal, though we do offer waxing services in Onion Creek and electrolysis which are safe for pregnancy.
After your laser hair removal treatment, you can expect the hair to shed out from the follicle within 2-3 weeks after which you will be hairless in the treated area until the next hair growth cycle begins to come in.
For anything below the neck, the hair will begin to come back in at about the 6 to 8-week mark & that is when you would want to be scheduled for your next visit to catch the hair in the next cycle for the best long term results. The hair that comes in will be thinner/finer & there will be less of it each time. For the face, growth cycles are between the 4 to 6-week mark.
While results can vary from person to person and body area to body area, industry standards are anywhere between 6 to 10 consistent treatments where most people are happy with their results.
All of our Austin laser hair removal machines are classified as permanent hair reduction. After a series of treatments, you will likely see little or no hair growth. However, no hair removal laser can claim to permanently remove hair. Hormonal changes can produce new hair growth. Also, certain medications can cause new hair growth.
Be sure that you are not on any kind of medication that makes you sun-sensitive like Accutane for acne & certain antibiotics as well as topicals like retinol & retinA.
Avoid tanning beds, spray tans & direct sun exposure for about 2 weeks pre-treatment.
Avoid plucking or waxing the area to be treated for about 3 to 4 weeks before planned treatment.
Shave before treatment so that your skin is smooth when you come into the office. However, if it is an area you can not reach we can shave for you.
You do not have to have hair on the treatment area before your session. In fact, you will have to shave the area 24 hours before your session as this will allow the laser to locate the follicle faster.

When it comes to the level of pain, laser hair treatment falls between shaving (pain-free) and plucking (ouch! that really hurts). During the session, you may not feel the heat but you may feel as though the technician is snapping your skin with a rubber band. You may feel some pain, but how painful the procedure depends on which body part is undergoing the treatment. You may experience redness and irritation (similar to what you feel after getting sunburned) after the session.
Dermaplaning is the latest technique producing instant rejuvenation results. The procedure is simple – using a surgical blade, our expert technicians will slough off dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach hair) to reveal the soft and glowing skin beneath. The results are quite simply breathtaking.
You can even include dermaplaning as part of a larger package. Clients often combine dermaplaning as an add-on with chemical peels and other procedures. Because dermaplaning removes the top layer of hair and dead skin, the deep cleansing products can absorb more readily into the skin. It’ll also mean fewer imperfections like fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation irregularities, and pore size.
