There are many chemical peels out there. Many of which require long periods of pretreatment, with discomfort and an equally long and arduous period of recovery. The VI Peel®, however, specializes in going the distance for deep dramatic results similar to the more invasive traditional chemical peels, without the discomfort and irritating healing process. The VI Peel® is composed of five various rejuvenating acids: TCA, Retin-A, Salicylic Acid, Phenol, and Vitamin C. The VI Peel® is a unique treatment designed to reverse the early signs of aging and sun damage with little to no downtime. In about a week’s time, patients will be able to notice and improvement in the overall texture and tone of their skin. The VI Peel® works to eliminate large pores and decrease areas of hyper-pigmentation.
What Should I Expect From a VI Facial Peel®?
The process usually only takes about 20 minutes. After cleansing the face and treating other areas, a peeling agent is then applied. Depending on which agent is used, the peel may be washed off or left on the skin. The peeling process occurs 1 to 3 days after the procedure through which it completes itself in 5 to 7 days. Throughout this period, the skin may appear dry and flaky. Moisturizer and sunscreen must be applied regularly throughout the 5 to 7 day period after the peel.
You will be able to engage in work and other activities immediately after applying the peel. The process can be repeated in 4 to 6 weeks. Depending on the skin condition concerns, a series of peels may be necessary to achieve optimal results.
