#1 Painless Chemical Peel that treats Acne, Melasma, Aging Skin, Hyperpigmentation, Acne Scarring
What's the difference between VI PEEL® and other chemical peels?
Unlike other chemical peels, our treatments are virtually painless, require no skin preconditioning and, have minimal downtime. VI peels are suitable for exfoliating the face and body. They also have vitamins and minerals which nurture the skin at the same time as it is going through the exfoliation process. These peels are practical, affordable and give excellent results to patients in as little as one (1) week. VI Peels are suitable for a variety of skin types and concerns. The VI Peel also comes with a take home kit that includes Post Peel Towelettes, Post Peel Protectant, and VI Derm SPF 50+ to help you with healing during the exfoliation process.
Can I peel the skin that is hanging during the peeling process?
No. NEVER PULL BACK on the skin that is shedding. It is recommended to use a small cuticle scissor to trim the exfoliating skin. You can also go and wash the face to help gently remove the hanging skin. If washing the face multiple times a day, be sure to add moisture back to the skin by applying the Post Peel Protectant or coconut oil. You also MUST use the VI Derm SPF 50+ to protect the skin during and after the exfoliation process.
When will I stop peeling?
In general, you receive the peel on day one (1) and start peeling on or around day three (3). Every peel can be different, but in general you can expect peeling during days 3-7 days. Peeling may last additional days for some individuals. Body peeling tends to take a little longer for the peeling process to occur, and peeling can occur during days 3-10.
Do not use VI PEEL® if you:
have lupoid rosacea
are pregnant or nursing
have lupus or rheumatoid arthritis
have an autoimmune disease such as cutaneous scleroderma
**In the post peel kit for the VI Peel, the Post Peel Protectant has soy and the SPF has coconut alkane so it is not suggested to use these products if the person has this type of allergy. Instead, it is suggested to use Aquaphor® to help with the healing process and a high SPF (30 or above) to protect the skin.
