Washing and cleansing your face isn’t enough to remove all impurities underneath the skin’s surface. If you’re after deep cleansing that simultaneously promotes skin rejuvenation, a VI Peel here at the Restore Center for Aesthetics in Munster, IN, is just the treatment for you.
What Is VI Peel?
The VI Peel is a medium-strength and medical-grade chemical peel that helps minimize the signs of aging and sun damage. It also addresses fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture and tone.
This type of chemical peel works by treating the top layer of the skin as well as the uppermost section of the underlying dermal layers. Since it penetrates not just the top portion, the VI Peel can deliver more dramatic results than other chemical peels.
VI Peel contains a blend of active ingredients, which include salicylic acid, phenol, vitamin C, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), and retinoic acid – All of these combined provide a stronger, effective acidic solution than any at-home chemical peels.
What Is VI Peel For?
There are a variety of skin concerns that can be treated with VI Peel. In fact, it has 5 types specifically made to target a specific set of skin conditions.
- VI Peel – It contains the original formula as well as an anesthetic to reduce any discomfort.
- VI Peel Precision – This has higher concentrations of active ingredients and is 25% stronger and more effective in treating signs of aging.
- VI Peel Precision Plus – It has an additional kojic acid and hydroquinone for lightening dark spots.
- VI Peel Purify – This is intended for acne-prone skin and has benzoyl and hydrocortisone ingredients.
- VI Peel Purify with Precision Plus – It combines acne-fighting and brightening ingredients for patients with severe acne scarring and skin damage.
Regardless of which type, your provider will ensure that a VI Peel treatment can address your skin concerns.
Ideal Candidate for VI Peel
The VI Peel is considered safe for all skin tones, and it’s a great treatment for anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of:
- Minor wrinkles,
- Sun damage,
- Dark spots,
- Rough skin texture,
- Uneven skin tone,
- Fine lines,
- Minor scars and acne scars.
As a medium-strength chemical peel, it is not designed to address advanced signs of aging such as deep lines or sagging skin.
Instead, it’s an excellent option for patients with minimal signs of wrinkles and rough skin texture who want to restore their skin’s vitality and glow.
VI Peel Treatment Proper
The entire VI Peel should only take around 30 minutes. During the procedure, your aesthetician will begin by cleansing your face with acetone to ensure the peel will penetrate deeply enough.
Then, your provider will apply several layers of the solution. At most, you may feel a brief tingling or burning sensation which is normal and tolerable. After that, the treatment process should be pain-free.
Once the VI Peel solution penetrates completely, your provider will apply sunscreen to protect your skin. Four hours after receiving treatment, you can then rinse the solution off your face and apply makeup until the peeling begins.
For best results, a follow-up treatment every three months is advisable.
