A VI Peel is a chemical peel that can target a number of skin issues, including signs of aging, sunspots and hyperpigmentation, acne, and acne scarring. A chemical peel is a painless, nonsurgical procedure that uses specially formulated chemicals to remove the surface layers of skin and reveal fresher, brighter, and more youthful skin.
The Vi Peel is almost painless and requires none of the skin preconditioning required by those peels when used on skin types 4 to 6. In addition, the VI Peel has very few of the complications and hazards that usually come with those peels.
A single VI Peel will achieve significant repair and add a healthy glow to the skin. Some conditions like acne scars, pore enlargement and hyper pigmentation might require multiple applications. It is a restorative and painless repair of damaged skin, including sun damage and acne. Best of all, it is a true aging preventative for younger skin with no visible damage.
It tackles skin problems at the cellular level rather than just burning skin off. Thanks to the concerted actions of its many acids and vitamins, it will help erase fine lines and wrinkles, shrink enlarged pores and build collagen and elastin which tighten skin. It is extremely effective in reducing or eliminating hyperpigmentation including melasma, the most difficult pigmentation issue to correct. The Vi Peel also provides excellent results for acne.
The many innovations that created the VI Peel combine to allow ALL skin types to enjoy the benefits of the peel. For the first time, darker skin types can experience anti-aging and restorative skin repair previously unavailable.
Not really. Patients will feel a slight stinging sensation for a few seconds which subsides almost immediately. The peel is applied topically and numbing of the skin takes place after the first pass. Some patients may feel more comfortable using a fan or cold air breeze.
The skin peeling associated with the Vi Peel is a light, fluffy peel that will start on day three and generally be finished by the end of day seven. The peeling is easily hidden by moisturizer. In some cases, the peel is virtually invisible. Patients using Retin A may experience heavier peeling. The peel can be modulated by your skin care provider to produce a deeper, more aggressive peel, if necessary, depending on your skin condition.
The skin will look slightly tan, yellow or red immediately after the peel. On days one and two the skin will feel slightly tighter, with no visible signs of having had a peel. Any pigmented areas might appear slightly darker. On approximately day three, patients will begin to peel. The first signs of peeling usually begin around the mouth area and continue for a day or two. With the use of the Vi Derm™ moisturizer, patients may go about their usual daily routine. By day six or day seven the patient will be done peeling and the results are dramatic! If a more aggressive peel was performed, a secondary peel might occur around day seven.
