Improve the appearance of your skin with VI Peels. As we age, damaged skin cells accumulate on the skin’s surface, making your skin look dull and damaged. A chemical peel can remove these damaged cells, revealing the fresh, beautiful skin underneath. It can also even out skin pigmentation, reduce fine lines, and improve acne. Our chemical peels are formulated for all skin types and can address numerous skin concerns.
What It Is
A chemical peel is a skin treatment that improves the appearance of aging, sun damage, and other skin concerns. It involves applying a unique solution with low concentrations of naturally-occurring organic acids to the skin in layers. This solution exfoliates the top layers of skin, causing the more superficial cells to peel off. As a result, the skin appears smoother, brighter, and more youthful. Chemical peels can treat acne, uneven skin tone, and wrinkles.
How It Works
Chemical peels work by removing the outer layers of aging and dead skin cells, revealing the healthy, glowing skin underneath. This process, known as exfoliation, improves the surface texture and overall appearance of the skin. The exfoliation process also stimulates the production of new skin cells and collagen, which improves the skin’s overall tone, texture, and pigmentation. After the peeling process, your skin looks smoother, softer, and more youthful, and the production of new collagen leads to a youthful appearance.
What To Expect
During a chemical peel treatment, your provider will cleanse your skin and apply a prep pad to help the solution adhere to your skin. Next, the VI peel solution will be applied using a small piece of gauze. The first pass may sting slightly, but the skin should become numb due to the presence of Phenol in the solution. A total of four passes of the solution will be applied to the treated area, giving the skin a bronze-like glow similar to a spray tan. You can wash your face after four hours.
You will be given a take-home kit with instructions and products, including a cleanser and pads, to use for the next seven days. Peeling typically starts on day two or three and usually lasts around seven days. During this time, you can expect redness, irritation, and flaking of dead skin as the new skin regenerates. After seven days, you should notice a more youthful and glowing appearance in your skin. The regenerated skin will be smoother and may have a slight reduction in pigmentation and fine lines.
