How does it work?

A VI Chemical Peel contains a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients to help improve the tone, texture, and clarity of your skin and provide anti-aging benefits. A solution appropriate to your skin type and needs is applied to the skin and causes it to exfoliate and later peel off. This allows new, regenerated skin to rise to the surface – smoother, softer, less wrinkled and problematic than your previously damaged skin

The treatment is very quick, and will take less than 20 minutes

The peeling process lasts up to a week. The majority of the peeling typically occurs on days 3-5

You’ll see your final results about seven days after the peeling stops. The length of these results vary person-to-person. Many patients see results after only one peel- often fairly dramatic; but 2-3 peels are recommended for optimal results. After you achieve the results that you want, maintenance peels and good skin care will help your results last

The VI Peel is considered safe with few risks of complications.One risk of all chemical peels is possible changes in pigmentation. Avoiding exercising, sweating, or raising your body temperature significantly for the first three or four days after your treatment reduces this risk. Hyperpigmentation post-peel usually resolves on its own, but topical products can help resolve it more quickly

A VI peel should not be used if you have a known allergy to an ingredient in the formulations or an aspirin allergy. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not have this treatment. Nor should patients who have used Accutane, chemotherapy or radiation in the last 6 months. Schedule a consultation today to see if the VI peel is right for you

You’ll leave the office with the solution still on your skin and instructions to rinse it off in four hours. After you rinse it off, you may apply makeup until peeling begins. Depending on which formula you had, you’ll also receive three to five towelettes for home use.  Strict sun avoidance is advised after a peel and during the initial healing process. After that, the use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen is essential to prevent further damage to the skin
