VI Peel Advanced Precision
Everyone desires to glow with smooth, spotless and healthy-looking skin regardless of their age. A VI Peel treatment is a great solution for both teenagers and young adults who want to clear their acne, scarring, blackheads or other types of skin inflammation, and for people with more mature skin that needs rejuvenating.
What is a VI Peel?
A VI Peel is a chemical peel treatment that uses active ingredients like salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid, retinoic acid, phenol and vitamin C to remove the epidermis - the uppermost section of the underlying dermal layers so that the body can produce new, smoother and spotless skin.
The salicylic acid cleanses the pores and gets rid of any bacteria that may cause acne or inflammation. That’s why it is a popular ingredient in most anti-acne products. It can even help break down keratosis pilaris or most commonly known as chicken skin.
Collagen production is extremely important for maintaining a youthful look and that’s exactly what the trichloroacetic acid does - it exfoliates the skin and improves its elasticity.
The Retinoic acid enables the process of replacing dead skin cells with younger ones and inhibits melanin production thus preventing pigmentation.
The VI Peel treatment is popular for its effect on skin aging, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, melasma and other texture issues.
Is the Procedure Safe?
Yes, it’s completely safe and virtually painless. In fact, it’s the first painless chemical peel and has proven itself to be an industry leader. With the help of phenols that have the ability to numb the skin, the peel application causes no discomfort. The VI peel formula is recommended for all skin types and is effective on the face, neck, chest, arms, back and legs.
However, as this is a medical-grade chemical treatment, some side effects may occur: peeling of the skin that typically lasts 4-7 days; some temporary changes in skin tone; swelling or a mild sunburn sensation. This is nothing to worry about, though, and you just have to be patient and wait it out.
What Are the Benefits of the VI Peel?
This medium-strength chemical procedure helps reduce the signs of aging like dullness and dryness. It removes wrinkles and fine lines by boosting collagen production as well as hydrating the skin. The peel even targets acne and helps minimise acne scarring and pore size.
By undergoing a VI Peel treatment on a regular basis, you can delay the visible effects of aging and keep the skin young, fresh and moisturised for a long time.
Is There Any Downtime With This Treatment?
The treatment usually takes about 20 to 45 minutes. No skin preparation is required for this type of peel procedure and the recovery time is very little. However, for best results we strongly encourage that you do not wash the chemicals off for at least 5 hours.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
The results are visible in just 7 days - the cell turnover will quickly help your skin look and feel younger, smoother and silkier.
However, achieving optimal results generally requires a series of 3 to 4 treatments. They are generally performed once or twice a month. If you are looking to use the VI Peel as a way to prevent skin aging, specialists recommend undergoing the chemical procedure every 3 months. Naturally, the number of sessions depends on the individual needs and desires as well as the patient’s skin type and level of sensitivity.
You should remember that the full results typically appear about 4 to 6 weeks later.
