Having great skin is an aesthetic goal for many people, and when our skin feels dull, cracked, dry, and unhealthy, it can affect not only our appearance but also our self-confidence. If you’re someone interested in improving the appearance of your skin by getting rid of wrinkles, fine lines, texture, and hyperpigmentation, our VI Peel treatment may be the perfect option for you!

What is a VI PeelViDerm_pkg_FINAL_0606

As a non-invasive treatment, the VI Peel is a skin treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin, mainly on the face, chest, and hands. The VI Peel contains a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types and colors, with dramatic results and virtually no pain, no skin preparation, and little downtime. Using a chemical solution, VI Peel removes the upper layers of the dermis to allow the growth of fresh new skin that is smoother, brighter, and more youthful in appearance while also increasing collagen production.

What Conditions Does a VI Peel Treat?

As a medical-grade chemical peel, the VI Peel is an effective treatment to improve several skin conditions and issues, including active acne and scarring, uneven skin texture and tone, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation.

Am I a Good Candidate for the VI Peel?

Candidates for the VI Peel are adults who have noticeable signs of aging or skin damage on their face. From acne scars to wrinkles, almost anyone in overall good health can benefit from a VI peel. If you have a darker skin complexion, it’s important to note that a VI peel may put you at risk for further hyperpigmentation. Additionally, if you have active acne, an active skin infection, or are prone to abnormal scarring, this type of peeling treatment may not be suitable for you.

What Is the VI Peel Procedure Like?

The VI Peel procedure involves applying a layer of trichloroacetic acid, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, vitamin C, and a mineral blend. Once applied to the face, hands, or neck, the patient may begin to feel a stinging or tingling sensation. In a few minutes, this sensation will disappear, and the VI peel will stay on the treated skin until it naturally peels away in several days to reveal a newly rejuvenated layer of skin. As an overall quick and non-invasive procedure, most patients do not find this treatment painful.

Are There Any Risks With the VI Peel?

Like any other skin treatment, a VI Peel has potential risks, including burns, additional scarring, infection, discoloration, hyperpigmentation, and allergic reactions. However, when applied by our expert providers at Elite Plastic Surgery, patients are able to manage their side effects and minimize their potential for risks under our high-quality care.

How Long Is the Downtime for a VI Peel?

A VI Peel typically takes around three to five days to begin peeling. Within a week of their treatment, patients will begin to notice a smoother, clearer, healthier layer of skin appearing underneath the peeling layer of skin. Using a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen daily, as recommended by your provider, will ensure a successful recovery. Patients should avoid prolonged periods of time in the sun when recovering from a VI Peel to minimize additional scarring. After a week, most patients can return to their normal routines.

How Long Will My Results Last?

Results from a VI Peel can last for up to three to four months. At the end of this time, you may notice new signs of aging, new pigmentation, or new scarring appearing on your skin, which is natural. However, to maintain an appearance that is free of blemishes, many patients undergo a VI Peel treatment every four weeks to keep their skin radiant, hydrated, clear, and healthy.
