Skin Resurfacing/ VI PEEL F.A.Q.s
The five unique VI PEEL blends treat active acne, melasma (pregnancy mask), collagen loss associated with aging skin, hyperpigmentation (skin discoloration), and acne scarring.
The VI PEEL is considered a medium-depth peel. It utilizes a unique blend of five synergistic acids applied to the skin. This chemical exfoliant penetrates through the epidermis and part of the papillary dermis stimulating the skin to regenerate new cells, collagen, and other growth factors. The skin’s surface acts as a bandage to protect the newly formed skin, and this layer sloughs off as the new skin cells are ready to emerge, restoring the skin’s tone and texture. The process takes seven days to complete, but peeling typically occurs on days 3-5. While medium-depth peels penetrate to the level of the papillary dermis, superficial peels reach only the epidermis. Medium-depth peels are very effective at treating various skin concerns from premature aging, sun damage, melasma, acne scarring, and uneven skin tone. They should only be performed by medical professionals such as nurse practitioners or physicians that have received specialized training in their use.
People that want to improve the overall quality of their skin, minimize the signs of aging, achieve a more even skin tone, and/or improve acne and are not pregnant or breastfeeding are excellent candidates for this treatment.
The peeling process and initial result are complete in 7 days. Peels are recommended in a series of 3 treatments, each approximately four weeks apart. Final results are seen after the series is complete. Maintenance treatments are recommended every six months.
It takes seven days for the peeling process to complete. On days 1 & 2, you may notice tingling and a mild feeling of tightness. Typically, the peeling process is most significant on Days 3-5, mild on Day 6, and completed by Day 7. Your custom VI PEEL includes a post-treatment skincare kit with daily instructions on how to care for your skin, including an app with reminders and to update your progress. We recommend avoiding sun exposure, excessive sweating, vigorous activities, and makeup application on the treated areas until the peeling process is complete. Eye makeup and lipstick are fine.
