Vi Peel Experience the Beauty of Peeling

 

For All Skin Types! …..The VI Peel is a relatively new treatment that employs a combination of TCA, Salicylic, Retin-a, Phenol, and Vitamin C for the achievement of optimal results for all skin types and color. It is a treatment designed for anti-aging and to clear acne skin conditions in both adults and teens and improve the skin’s tone and texture by reducing age spots, freckles, and uneven hyperpigmentation, including melasma. Chemical peel treatments remove the outer, “dead” layers of the skin or epidermis. This allows the epidermis to become more permeable to nutrients. In addition, peels help reduce fine lines, smooth the skin, reduce the appearance of scars, and give a softer, suppler appearance to skin.

The Vi Peel has been safely used to manage acne in patients as young as 13 years of age and is effective for use on darker skin tones that have not historically responded well to other chemical peel procedures. With new innovations such as the ViPeel,for the first time African-American and darker skin types such as some Asian and Latin skins can all benefit from the anti-aging and restorative skin care that was not previously available.

The Vi Peel tackles skin problems at the cellular level rather than just burning skin off. We now understand what a chemical peel in general does, but the question is what makes a Vi Peel any different? The Vi Peel has many acids and vitamins work together to erase fine lines and wrinkles, minimize enlarged pores, and build collagen and elastin to tighten the skin. It is extremely effective in practically eliminating hyper pigmentation including melasma, the most difficult pigmentation issue to address. The Vi Peel also provides excellent results for acne and acne scarring.

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 six hours and washed off by the patient at home, or you may sleep with it on overnight. Some patients experience light stinging during application, which subsides quickly.

The VI Peel is virtually painless and requires no skin preparation and little downtime. The Vi Peel also works well in conjunction with lasers and injectable as well to achieve an overall improvement if desired!

5 Reasons Why You Should Peel In The Summer

Don’t stop now just because its summer!!

We’re just going to be direct: the summer time is a great time to get a VI Peel! Disregard the stigma you may have heard from your friend or family member that it’s just not a good idea because that isn’t true. No more excuses! Check out these five good reasons on why you should say yes to a VI Peel this summer:

1) You Want The Glow (but not the Grease)

Ingredient 101:  Salicylic Acid helps absorb and control excess oil in the skin, so summertime chemical peels are a great option for those of us who are tired of reaching for an oil blotting sheet every hour.   Oily, acne prone gals love the VI Peel Purify, however all VI Peels contain salicylic so you can look forward to all the glow… without the grease.  More on the dry side?  Salicylic bonuses as a key ingredient for smoothing out the skin, giving you a poreless appearance.  Either way, we’re into it.

2) You Want a Quick Fix

Time has flown by and the wedding of the year is just around the corner. Everyone is going to be there, including that Brad Pitt look alike you’ve had your eye on since high school [sigh].  Unlike many other cosmetic procedures, the VI Peel has you prepped and peeled to perfection in just 6 days!  No need to splurge on a professional makeup artist, your makeup will apply smoother than ever on your baby skin.  You’ll thank us later.

3) You Prefer to Go “Au Natural”

Summer is the time to ditch the full coverage foundations and let your skin breathe. Addicted to your long wearing, full coverage foundation?  If you find yourself constantly trying to cover and conceal, you’ll love the VI Peel Precision Plus.  Fade away the proof of years the years of damage from the tanning bed with the pigment erasing solution ex-sun worshipers know and love.

4) You’re a Master Planner

Your time is precious and you know your way around a Google Calendar. Peel like a VI Pro and schedule your peel on a Thursday, leaving your main peeling days to Saturday and Sunday.   With proper care and planning, you’ll be a glowing goddess in time for happy hour cocktails with your coworkers the next week!

5) You’d Rather Take Two Steps Forward than Three Steps Back

Allow your skin to correct and resurface itself instead of creating more UV induced damage by practicing safe sun and avoiding prolonged direct sun exposure. Summer is the perfect time to treat and remove last year’s sun damage that you never got around to addressing.   Alternatively, you can get a chemical peel nearing the end of summer to be glowing for your last hurrah while also treating your sun damage from the prior weeks or months of outdoor summer activities.  Now that’s a win-win!

Treat yourself this summer. Call us at 540-371-9098 to schedule your summer peel!
