VI Peels is a new generation of chemical peels. The outermost layers of your skin are exfoliated with a chemical peel, which utilizes a mixture of chemicals. As a result of this procedure, new skin cells are formed, and collagen and elastin are produced, enhancing the skin’s suppleness and elasticity. Melasma, sun spots, acne, acne scars, and fine wrinkles begin to fade as the top layer of skin is removed.
Standard chemical peels subject patients to days of itchy, flaky skin followed by extra days of discomfort and redness. This sets VI Peels apart from the competition: Exfoliating ingredients such as salicylic acid and trichloroacetic acid are also present in this product, like vitamins C and minerals. Ensuring that those healing components reach the dermis is facilitated by peeling.
What this implies for you is that VI Peels are almost pain-free, require minimal downtime, and you’ll see results in as little as seven days.
To Peel Or Not To Peel
It’s usually a good idea to ask that kind of question! A deeper chemical peel has long piqued the curiosity of many people, but few have ever undergone one. Whether or not a client is suitable for our more intensive VI Peels is something we are frequently asked. VI Peels are ideal for all skin types and can be used to address a wide range of issues. Except for those who are pregnant, nursing, or allergic to aspirin, most people are good candidates for this sort of treatment. Apart from that, I’d steer clear of this peel if you’re prone to remove peeling skin prematurely by picking or pulling at it. Some downtime is required for VI Peels, which means no sun exposure, no exercise, no makeup, and no picking of the skin for about 7 days. This peel is not recommended for persons who cannot abstain from these things for seven days.
What advantages does a VI Peel have?
- Enhance the skin’s appearance in color, texture, and clarity
- Age spots, freckles, and hyperpigmentation, including melasma, can be reduced or eliminated.
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
- Acne and scars from acne can be minimized.
- Increase collagen production for firmer, younger-looking skin.
What should I expect?
It usually takes 45 minutes to complete the procedure.
In combination with a numbing component, the VI Peel isn’t uncomfortable. For the first two to three minutes after application, clients may experience a warm, tingling sensation, but this will pass rapidly.
Following a VI Peel treatment, clients are allowed to return to their daily routine. Peel solution will remain on the skin for at least four hours before rinsing to remove the peel. The client will receive additional aftercare products designed to aid in the peeling process. SPF 30 sunscreen should be applied to the skin every day while it is healing.
Is there going to be any downtime?
Client’s skin may initially appear red and puffy after washing off the VI Peel, much like a mild sunburn. This is quite normal in the first 24 hours and will go away. Clients should expect a seven-day recovery from a VI Peel. To begin peeling, the skin will shed after two to three days. This process can last up to four days.
There should be no intense activity for the first 72 hours, as sweating could affect a VI Peel procedure outcome.
When can I expect to get see the results?
One treatment is often enough for many clients to notice a big difference. Within a week of the peeling subsiding, the results are usually visible. However, even months after treatment, the skin may continue to improve.
*Individual outcomes may vary.
How many treatments are necessary?
You will receive a personalized treatment plan based on your specific skin issues and goals.
In general, three to four sessions are advised for the best outcomes. However, the number of treatments required for each patient will vary based on the patient’s skin condition and severity. Regular treatments are required every three months to keep the skin looking its best for as long as possible.
