Over the past few years, chemical peels have transformed the skin care industry dramatically. Yes, they eliminate the ravages of time and expose the glowing underlying tissue below. But in addition to garnering some criticism for being a tad too harsh on the skin, some peels also involve a relatively long recovery time as well.
However, scientific and technological advancements are constantly working in the background to churn out products that are more effective and less harmful on the skin. One such peel is the VI Peel, and because it is much milder, it has amassed a considerably large fan following globally.
What is the VI Peel?
Unquestionably one of the safest and most gentle chemical peels on the market today, the VI Peel can be used to treat even the most delicate facial areas. It is a medical grade chemical peel from VI Aesthetics’ product range and is a unique formulation of some of the best components from other peels which treats a range of skin maladies from diminishing sun spots to expanding pores.
This helps the skin breathe better to drastically reduce hyperpigmentation. With extensive reach, the peel works on the skin’s surface as well as the dermal layer, which is the skin’s middle layer. It also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are those essential components that give us our youthful glow.
The Benefits of the VI Peel
There are a plethora of skin conditions that can be addressed with a VI Peel. Its unique blend of ingredients delivers an array of benefits.
- Retin-A – Decreases fine lines and wrinkles
- Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) – Increases collagen production and evens out deep scars
- Salicylic Acid – Cleanses the tissue and acts like an anti-inflammatory agent
- Vitamin C – Enhances and brightens skin tone
- Phenol – Tackles deep creases and lines
What Does the Treatment Entail?
Many patients who have undergone the treatment say that the peel works quicker than most others and is a much more comfortable experience as well. During the 30-minute procedure, your physician will apply the VI Peel solution to your face in layers.
Because it has to stay on for about 4 hours, you will be given easy instructions on how to take it off at home.
What Are The After-effects?
A VI Peel treatment is practically pain-free. You might feel a subtle tingling sensation during the procedure, but because it is such a safe, non-invasive therapy, there is no downtime and you can resume your daily activities as soon as possible.
Once you notice the visible benefits of the peel, you can have more sittings as well. Usually, each session can be undergone once every four weeks. Your physician or health care specialist will recommend what treatment plan will best suit you. And last but definitely not the least, anyone can benefit from this groundbreaking skin rejuvenation technique – it is safe for all skin types, colors, and all ages.
