WHAT IS VI PEEL?

VI Peel’s version of a chemical peel offers you a safer alternative to mechanical or physical exfoliation. Our peels also can address multiple skin issues simultaneously, from texture, to pigment, to acne, all in one in-office visit.

Chemical peels are an effective solution to common skin issues including pigmentation, acne, scars, and fine lines. What is sometimes referred to as “chemexfoliation” has been used for hundreds of years for both clinical and aesthetic purposes. But what makes VI Peel the best choice for chemexfoliation?

How does it work?

VI “Medium-Depth” Peels penetrate through the Dermal-Epidermal Junction to the papillary dermis as shown in this graphic.

Melanin creates the pigment of our skin and lives within our skin cells.  When melanin is overproduced, the skin exhibits hyperpigmentation or spots.  VI Peels focus on lifting and exfoliating those skin cells to allow our body to produce new cells that are healthier and less pigmented.  The process of exfoliation also smooths the surface of our skin creating softer smoother texture.

Real Results

VI Peel professional treatments feature a one-of-a-kind formulation designed to painlessly lift pigment, relieve acne and acne scars, and fight fine lines.

What Steps Must Be Taken Before The Skin Rejuvenation Treatment?

1. Wait at least one-year post Accutane/isotretinoin use before your peel.

2. One week before peel, patient should avoid: Electrolysis, Depilatory Creams, Waxing, Laser Hair Removal

3. 2 weeks before peel, patient should avoid these products and/or procedures: Retin-A®, Renova®, Differin®, Tazorac®; any products containing retinol, alpha-hydroxy acids or beta- hydroxy acids, or benzoyl peroxide; any exfoliating products or procedures that may be drying or irritating.

4. If you are prone to herpes simplex outbreaks, such as cold sores, consult your provider on ways to treat prior, or discuss whether the procedure is appropriate for you.

5. If your face or treatment area has irritated skin (sunburn, open wounds, warts, sores, excessively sensitive skin) the day preceding your appointment, please contact our office before your appointment.

6. Chemical peels are contraindicated in patients with a history of recent chemotherapy or radiation therapy; allergies to salicylates like aspirin, phenol or hydroquinone allergy; rashes, or skin reactions; vitiligo, autoimmune disease (rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, lupus, multiple sclerosis), liver condition, or any condition that may weaken their immune system; and pregnancy or breast feeding.
