FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should I expect?
Vi Peel Precision Plus, the ultimate in the Vi Peel series, is a medical grade chemical peel. It is a safe and effective way to achieve younger looking skin for all skin types, colors, and ages. The treatments are virtually painless with no need for skin pre-conditioning, and they also have minimal downtime. With proper treatment and home care, Vi Peel can help to: reverse sun damage, treat hyperpigmentation, treat melasma, reduce acne and scarring, rejuvenate aging skin and treat rosacea. The Vi Peel is affordable, effective and simple, giving excellent results within one week of treatment. All patients, from teenage acne sufferers to mature adult aged skin, can benefit from a Vi Peel treatment.
Before: No pre-skin conditioning is needed in order to complete a Vi Peel. However, some services, laser therapy for instance, may not be permitted during this course of treatment. Please call to schedule for a free consultation to determine the best course of treatment for your skin type and needs.
During: Beginning the treatment, the skin is first cleansed with alcohol. After the skin has been cleansed, the peel will then be applied. During the first application of the peel, you may feel a slight tingling sensation, but with each consecutive application the feeling will go away. Once the peel has been applied approximately three times in this fashion, the process is complete.
After: Immediately following the treatment, your skin may appear orange in color, as if you have a sunburn. This coloration goes away. You will be given a home care kit, complete with cleanser, towelettes, peel protectant, sunscreen, and at-home instructions on how to take care of your skin in the following days.
What areas of the face can be treated with Botox?
The most common area is the face. The VI Peel is also incredibly effective in removing sunspots from the hands and chest and eliminating the wrinkles associated with sun damage on the décolletage. Your skin care professional can customize the application for each patient.
How does it work?
Vi Peel works by removing the superficial layers of the skin and allowing new, rejuvenated skin tissue to grow. The chemical peel causes older skin cells to peel off and be removed and while simultaneously stimulating collagen production of new, healthy skin cells.
How do we treat this condition?
With the laser, our treatment providers utilize a treatment program customized to your needs. Once the area is treated, the body begins its natural healing process.
Are you a good candidate for this procedure?
ALL skin types can enjoy the benefits of the Vi Peel. For the first time, African-American and other darker skin types such as Southwest Asian and Latin patients can experience anti-aging and restorative skin repair that was previously unavailable.
Is it painful?
It is painless, yet produces dramatic, visible results in just days with little downtime. Patients will feel a slight stinging sensation for a few seconds which subsides completely almost immediately. The peel is applied topically, numbing of the skin takes place after the first pass. Some patients may feel more comfortable using a fan or cold air breeze.
When will I see results?
The skin peeling associated with the VI Peel is a light, fluffy peel that will start on day three and generally be finished by the end of day four. The peeling is easily hidden by moisturizer. In some cases, the peel is virtually invisible.
What will you look like right after the Vi Peel and during the next few days?
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 seven the patient is done peeling and the results are dramatic!
What will the Vi Peel do for the patient’s skin?
It uses the synergy of all available and known modes of action of various acids to produce a multitude of positive effects. It tackles skin problems at the cellular level rather than just burning skin off. Thanks to the concerted actions of its many acids and vitamins, it will help erase fine lines and wrinkles, shrink enlarged pores and build collagen and elastin which tighten skin. It is extremely effective in practically eliminating hyper-pigmentation including melasma, the most difficult pigmentation issue to address.
How many treatments will you need?
The peel may be repeated as often as every two weeks, if necessary, for damaged skin. Our recommendation for average skin would be once every three months to prevent damage and the underlying aging of the skin. Your skin care professional will evaluate damage, goals and expectations and make an appropriate recommendation for ongoing skin care.
How quickly will I recover?
It takes about four days after the patient finishes peeling for the skin to return to its normal pH and to see the final effects. The skin will look luminous and glowing. The patient will feel refreshed with slightly tighter skin. Hyper-pigmentation will be improved or gone, depending on the amount of damage. Texture will be improved with an overall more youthful appearance.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects may occur with Vi Peel treatments, however, with proper care and instruction, the side effects and risks can be eliminated or minimized greatly. Some of these risks include mild redness, skin sensitivity, hyper-pigmentation, scarring, infections, cold sores, and burns. It is important to follow the proper post-treatment care in order to avoid any complications.
