A VI Peel can be performed in a medspa or cosmetic dermatology clinic and can be administered by a licensed nurse, a certified aesthetician or a medical doctor. While older procedures for chemical peels included skin preconditioning, there is no preconditioning needed prior to receiving a VI Peel. The application process can take up to 30 minutes and involves the chemical solution being topically applied to the skin. The peel is then left on the skin for five hours and washed off by the patient at home. Some patients experience light stinging during application, which subsides quickly.
Patients can receive VI Peels repeatedly every two weeks until they receive their desired results; however, most patients need only one initial treatment followed by regular peels three to four times per year for continuing skin renewal and luminosity.
Most patients report noticeable results within a few days after receiving a VI Peel. Results will include an overall improvement in the appearance of the skin including a more youthful glow and improved tone and texture.
For most clients, peels should be done three to four times a year starting at puberty to repair sun damage that is already present, and to avoid permanent scarring for those affected by acne. The frequency of the peel depends on various factors, and will be determined by your clinician. For extremely damaged skin, the VI Peel can initially be done once a month to get quicker desired results.
Many patients will notice that their skin appears red or tan after their VI Peel treatment, which is normal and will subside shortly after the procedure. Patients can return to regular activities immediately after their appointment; however, the peel solution must stay on the face for five hours, and strenuous activities, such as exercise, should be avoided until the patient washes the solution off. Patients can apply make-up prior to and after the peeling process, but should not wear make-up while their skin is peeling.
The peeling process most often begins on the third day after the procedure and can last from a few days to one week. During the peeling period, patients may have some sensitivity and should avoid sun exposure as much as possible. Moisturizer can be used during this time to mask the light, feathery skin peeling if the patient is concerned about the appearance of their skin.
