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 skin’s surface texture and overall appearance. The exfoliation process also stimulates the production of new skin cells and collagen, which improves the skin’s overall tone, texture, and pigmentation. After your VI Peel in Austin, your skin will peel, and look smoother, softer, and more youthful, and the production of new collagen leads to a youthful appearance.

Your VI Peel Options

The VI Peel Original is a medium-depth peel suitable for most skin types and concerns. It is formulated with a blend of salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid, phenol, and other ingredients to improve the appearance of sun damage, uneven skin tone, and fine lines and wrinkles.

The VI Peel Purify is a medium-depth peel specifically formulated to target acne and acne-prone skin. It contains a blend of salicylic acid, kojic acid, and other ingredients to help clear acne, reduce inflammation, and improve the appearance of acne scarring.

The VI Peel Precision Plus is a medium-depth peel formulated with a blend of salicylic acid, retinoic acid, phenol, and other ingredients to target hyperpigmentation, melasma, and uneven skin tone. It can also improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The VI Peel Advanced is a deeper peel formulated with a blend of trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, retinoic acid, and other ingredients to improve the appearance of more severe skin concerns, such as deep wrinkles, acne scarring, and uneven skin tone.

What To Expect

During a VI Peel in Austin, 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 receive a take-home kit with instructions and products, including a cleanser and pads, 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. Post 7 days of your VI Peel in Austin, 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.
