Everything you need to know about VI Peels

Praised for its ability to reveal smoother, fresher skin for people of all ages and skin types, the VI Peel ranks among the safest and most effective skin peels available today.

Everything you need to know about VI PeelsThe VI’s Peel’s effectiveness is found in the fact that this is a subdermal peel. This means that the VI process actually peels away visible damage from the skin’s surface. In the process, rough skin is sloughed away to improve skin’s texture and appearance. In addition to peeling away old skin to reveal fresh, “newborn” skin, the VI Peel fosters your skin’s own natural “plumping” ability by spurring the promotion of collagen. This is important because the collagen production that kept our skin supple and plump in our youth begins to drop off as we reach our 20s and 30s.

Many people are very satisfied with the youthful, radiant complexion that emerges following a VI Peel treatment. If this is a skin treatment that you’re considering, take a look at the need-to-know basics of VI Peels.

Why Do People Get VI Peels?

People decide to get VI Peels for a number of different aesthetic goals. The first is simply improving noticeable signs of aging. VI Peels are effective for smoothing those common wrinkles and fine lines that show up on the face. This type of skin peel is also especially attractive for people with sun damage and age spots. Here’s a look at some other skin concerns that are commonly addressed using VI skin peels:

  • Scarring from acne
  • Enlarged pores.
  • Rosacea.
  • Hyperpigmentation (uneven skin tone/darker patches).
  • Oil issues.
  • Dullness.
  • Melasma (brown or gray patches that commonly appear on the face).

In addition to addressing the specific skin concerns that people are seeking to neutralize or reverse, these peels also improve the overall texture and appearance of skin. The VI Peel process may work differently for different people based on the condition of their skin. In some cases, peel recipients experience an exfoliation event that sees skin gently peeling away. For others, a flaking process creates a more dramatic and noticeable peel. The full turnaround often takes a week.

Is the VI Peel Okay for Sensitive Skin?

Despite its powerful results, the VI Peel is actually considered a very gentle and painless peel. Many people with sensitive skin specifically seek out this peel after deciding that other options are not right for them.
VI Peels are gentle enough to be used around the eyes. They are commonly used to soften the look of skin on the chest, neck and hands. Of course, a one-on-one consultation is necessary to ensure that this is an appropriate option based on your specific skin characteristics and skin history.

What Happens During a VI Peel? Is Downtime Required?

A VI Peel session usually takes just 30 to 45 minutes in the office. While some people do experience mild redness immediately following the treatment, these reactions usually fully subside within the first 24 hours. This type of peel does not require any type of significant downtime or recovery. Many people go straight from the office to work, school or other obligations.

However, it is important to avoid any strenuous activities like exercise or sports for up to 48 hours after the peel due to the fact that sweat could negatively impact your results. The actual peeling process will last from about two days to seven days following the procedure. You will need to be conscious about sun exposure during the peel’s activation time. Avoiding direct sunlight is important.

Patients are also instructed to wear sunscreen during the peeling process. While moisturizer can be applied during healing, you’ll be told to avoid wearing makeup for about seven days to allow your skin to complete the healing process.

When Do You See Benefits From a VI Peel?

Full healing usually takes 14 days. Once you hit the 14-day mark, there is often a very noticeable change in the appearance of your skin. Many VI Peel clients remark that they see “baby” skin that is smooth, healthy and soft when they look in the mirror.
