Everybody is talking about VI Peel. It's one of the most popular chemical peel treatments used to improve the appearance of your facial and neck skin.
But before trying VI Peel, it's only natural to have some doubts and questions. Let us try to answer them.
What is VI Peel?
VI Peel is an effective facial treatment that uses a combination of safe chemicals to remove the upper layers of the skin to reveal the smooth, healthy skin underneath.
It also boosts collagen production to maintain the youthful look. VI Peel is proven to be effective and safe for all skin types and colors.
The VI Peel includes a blend of Trichloroacetic Acid (a.k.a. TCA), Salicylic Acid, Tretinoic Acid, Phenol, Vitamin C and other minerals. It is commonly used to treat wrinkles and fine lines, acne, scarring, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, melasma, rosacea and enlarged pores - on the face, neck, chest, back, legs, arms and hands.
How is VI Peel performed?
VI Peel must be performed only by a licensed esthetician or medical professional. First, they will cleanse your skin to remove dirt and oil. The chemical peel is then applied topically on the decided area in 2 phases. The first penetrates the skin cells on the surface; the second goes deeper into the dermis. This procedure takes about 30-45 minutes. The peel is left on for about 5 hours after which the patient can wash it off. VI Peel causes no pain or discomfort except for a mildtingling or burning sensation that subsides quickly. Patients can resume their regular activities almost immediately.
What will happen after the treatment?
The chemicals will continue to work on your skin for 24-48 hours after you have washed your face. The skin will begin to peel around day 3 and continue for 2-3 days.
By day 5, the peeling should stop. During the peeling process, your skin may show a red, brown or yellowish tone. It's like having a sunburn that is flaking off. During these days, it is advised to stay indoors and apply the “Post Peel Protectant” given to you. If you go out, be sure to use a high-quality SPF 50 as your skin will be more susceptible to damage from UVA/UVB rays. Once the skin has healed, enjoy the improved clarity, tone and glow.
How often should I get a VI Peel?
It all depends on the skin problem you are trying to treat and your budget. However, to see continuous results, it is recommended to have multiple treatments every 4-6 weeks.
Is VI Peel recommended for my skin type?
VI Peel is appropriate for patients of all ages and ethnicities. Most skin types and colors tolerate VI Peel well. However, people with dark skin may develop discoloration after the chemical peel. Get a consultation with an expert before you go in for the procedure and learn how best to avoid complications.
Pregnancy, estrogen use and excessive sun exposure after the procedure are also risk factors for developing dark spots. In fact, if you are pregnant, speak to your doctor before getting a VI Peel.
