What are chemical peels used for?
Chemical peels are used for the treatment of photo-aging (from sun damage), wrinkles, scarring, acne, precancerous lesions, and discoloration (including melasma, freckles, and age spots).
How is the VI Peel performed?
The treatment starts with vigorous cleansing and degreasing of the skin, followed by the VI Peel solution application. The solution can be applied up to 4-6 times depending on the treatment area.
How long does the VI Peel treatment take?
Most peels can be performed within a few minutes, depending on size of the area being treated, but expect 30 minutes for the entire VI Peel process.
Does the VI Peel hurt?
Unlike other chemical peels, the VI Peel treatments are easy to apply, virtually painless as numbing quickly occurs after the first pass of the peel on the skin, and require no skin pre-conditioning.
What should I expect when getting a VI Peel?
Your skin will be tight and appear pink or tan directly afterwards. Areas with pigmentation will appear darker until the peeling process begins. Typically peeling begins on the third day, and day 3-5 are the most aggressive days of peeling. Rewarding results can be seen on or around day 7.
How many VI Peels will I need?
The VI Peel may be performed alone or in a series of 2-4 peels 4-6 weeks apart until the desired results are achieved. A comprehensive home skincare routine specific to your skin concern will increase the effectiveness of the peels.
How long do the results from a VI peel last?
With good home skincare products, your specific skin concern can be a thing of the past.
Is there anything I have to think about after a VI Peel?
During the peeling process you MUST avoid sun exposure. The use of sunscreen is essential. It is very important to not pick on the peeling skin and to strictly follow the skin care instructions your skin care professional gave you for at least 7 days until the peeling process is over.
Is there any risks with VI Peel treatments?
VI Peel treatments are unique as they are suitable for all skin types and quite safe. Post inflammatory hyper pigmentation of the skin can occur, as can irritation or sensitivity, redness and/or rashes. Minor side effects that do arise are easily treated.
Who is a candidate for a VI Peel?
Anyone that is interested in achieving and maintaining healthier more youthful looking skin.
How long after a VI Peel can I return to normal activities?
There is no down time with getting a VI Peel, but you have to avoid activities involving excessive sweating for 72-96 hours (including exercise, saunas, hot tubs and steam rooms). Sun exposure should also be avoided for 7 days after the VI Peel.
What should I use at home to maintain the condition of my skin after a VI Peel?
Your skin care professional will discuss the appropriate products to use and sun protection is a must.
