A VI Peel is a medium-depth chemical peel that penetrates your top layer of skin, called the epidermis, reaching into the dermis underneath. It uses a product trademarked by Vitality Institute Medical Products.
Like other chemical peels, a VI Peel works by exfoliating your skin and stimulating the production of new proteins. The procedure is commonly used to treat signs of aging, improve skin texture, and correct pigmentary issues.
A VI Peel offers benefits similar to those of other light to medium chemical peels. Let’s look at some of the most common conditions it’s used to treat.
Fine lines and wrinkles
Treating sun spots and discoloration
Treating keratosis pilaris
Benefits of the VI Peel
The VI peel helps to improve the tone, texture, and clarity of the skin while reducing age spots, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation
How long do VI Peel results last?
If you are wondering how long a single treatment will last, then it can easily last 3 or 4 months, after which you will need to get another treatment. Do keep in mind though, a single treatment may only last this long as you follow the aftercare instructions provided.
What should I expect after a VI peel?
Immediately following the peel, the skin may appear tan, red, or yellow; this is temporary and will fade in minutes. Do not wash, touch, or apply make-up and/or sunscreen for at least 4 - 6 hours while peel is on the skin. APPLY NOTHING.
How long does it take for the VI Peel to work?
For optimal results, generally a series of 3-4 VI Peel treatments are needed, however, many patients will see significant results with just one treatment. Peeling typically lasts 7 days and results are generally seen within a week once peeling has subsided.
