Our skin begins to lose its youthful glow as we age. Collagen is the protein under our skin that produces its healthy, non-wrinkled appearance. Unfortunately, collagen production decreases as we get older and is directly affected by our exposure to UV rays, pollutants, and an unhealthy diet.
A Vi Peel is a clinical-grade chemical peel that removes the top layer of skin, thereby exposing the younger, healthier layer underneath. The procedure is performed in approximately 30 minutes and requires little downtime. The Vi Peel uses 5 key ingredients which are suitable to treat a variety of skin types as well as improve the tone, texture, quality, clarity of the skin.
*Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA)
*Retinoic Acid (Vitamin A)
*L-Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
Unlike other chemical peels, a Vi Peel doesn’t require skin preconditioning. After the treatment, our patient is then sent home with a post-peel kit and instructions on how to gently care for their skin in during the upcoming days.
The Vi Peel is virtually painless although skin can appear slightly red after treatment. It begins to peel after three days, and the peeling will last for an additional two to three days.
Makeup is not recommended while the skin is peeling. A moisturizer (some will be provided for you) can be applied to diminish the appearance of peeling skin. It is also best to stay out of the sun during the peeling process.
The Vi Peel is the latest skin treatment used to combat the signs of aging. Many people love this procedure so much, they have it done three to four times a year!
