VI PEEL Before & Afters
Frequently Asked Questions
HOW IS VI PEEL DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PEELS?
Obsolete peels of the past, without exception, epitomize the “no pain, no gain” approach to skin care. Before Vi Peel, the deeper the peel, the more painful, the more downtime, the better the results. Vi Peel is the first Next Generation Aesthetic. It is virtually painless, yet produces dramatic visible results in just days with little downtime.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED TO SHOW IMPROVEMENTS?
A single Vi Peel will achieve significant repair and add a healthy glow to the skin. Some conditions like acne scars, pore enlargement and hyper pigmentation might require multiple applications. It is a restorative and painless repair of damaged skin, including sun damage and acne. Chemical peels are a fantastic aging preventative, even for those without visible damage, and can be done a few times throught the year for maintenance.
WILL RESULTS BE LONG LASTING?
Like everything else in life, human skin needs maintenance. The Vi Peel’s wonderful results will last as long as skin care is maintained, sun exposure is moderate and preventive aging with the Vi Peel is performed three or four times per year. Medical grade skincare routine will enhance and prolong the results.
WHAT TYPE OF SKINS RESPOND WELL TO VI PEEL?
The many innovations that created the Vi Peel combine to allow ALL skin types to enjoy the benefits of the peel. For the first time, African-American and darker skin types such as Asian and Latin patients can experience anti-aging and restorative skin repair previously unavailable.
HOW MUCH PRECONDITIONING OF THE SKIN IS REQUIRED?
The VI Peel requires no preconditioning of the skin associated with older generation peels that can take three to five months.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER THE VI PEEL?
The skin will look slightly tan to red immediately after the peel. On days one and two the skin will feel slightly tighter with no visible signs of having a peel except for looking slightly tan, as if the patient just returned from a relaxing weekend at a resort. Any pigmented areas might appear slightly darker, which is a good sign. On about day three, the patient begins to peel. The first signs of peeling usually begin around the mouth area, continuing for a day or two. With the use of the Vi Derm™ moisturizer, patients go about their usual daily routine. By day six or day seven the patient is done peeling and the results are dramatic!
It is imperative to apply sunscreen during the week of the peel (and after!) to prevent any possible sun damage. Although tempting, it is important to not pick at or manually peel the skin to avoid any scarring or hyperpigmentation for best results.
CAN VI PEEL BE USED FOR THE BODY?
The VI Body Peel is incredibly effective in removing sunspots from the hands and chest and eliminating the wrinkles associated with sun damage on the décolletage. The provider will particularize the application for each patient.
