VI Peel


Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about VI Peel treatments.

Will I need to take time off work after receiving a VI Peel?

The duration of recovery time varies depending on the type and strength of the peel you receive. Typically, minimal redness or mild irritation should be expected for 2-3 days following the treatment. You may also experience some exfoliation within 3-5 days, which can be managed by using gentle exfoliation products as recommended by your aesthetician. If you are concerned about taking time off from work due to any side effects, it is best to discuss this with your aesthetician prior to scheduling any treatments in order to optimize results.

Is the VI Peel painful?

The level of discomfort experienced during a VI Peel varies from person to person. Generally speaking, most patients report feeling some tingling or burning sensation during the treatment. This usually subsides quickly after application and the post-treatment redness typically fades within 24 hours. Your aesthetician may recommend ways to lessen any discomfort you experience before and after the peel.

What is the cost of a VI Peel?

The cost of a VI Peel can vary depending on where it is performed and the type of peel you are receiving. It is important to discuss pricing with your aesthetician prior to scheduling any treatments. Additionally, most practices offer package deals or payment plans that may help make this treatment more affordable for you. As always, it is best to consult with your physician or aesthetician to ensure that this treatment is right for you and in order to optimize individual results.

Can the VI Peel be used on any part of the body?

The VI Peel is formulated to treat skin on the face, neck, and chest. However, it should not be applied to skin that has received previous skin injury or skin that is broken or irritated. It is important to discuss your skin goals with your aesthetician in order to determine whether this peel can safely address your individual needs. Additionally, they will provide post-treatment instructions tailored specifically for you in order to maximize your results and ensure safety.

Can all skin types receive a VI Peel?

The VI Peel is safe for all skin types, including sensitive skin. However, it is important to consult with your aesthetician prior to scheduling this treatment in order to ensure that the peel is right for you and that individual results can be optimized. Additionally, your aesthetician will provide post-treatment instructions tailored specifically for your skin type in order to maximize your results.

How long does the VI Peel last?

The results of a VI Peel can be expected to last for up to 6 months, depending on skin type and individual factors. To maintain your refreshed look, it is recommended that you schedule follow-up treatments as suggested by your aesthetician. Additionally, it is important to practice proper skincare habits and use sunscreen daily in order to protect your skin from sun damage.

What is exfoliation and how does it work?

Exfoliation is the process of removing dead skin cells from the surface layer of the skin. This helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, and other imperfections. The VI Peel exfoliates the skin using a mixture of ingredients including TCA, glycolic acid, salicylic acid and vitamin C. These exfoliants help to remove dead skin cells while also stimulating collagen production in order to achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Ultimately, exfoliation helps reveal healthier-looking skin beneath the surface layer.

What can I expect after my VI Peel?

Immediately following your peel, you may experience some redness and mild flaking of the skin. This will subside after a few days, and over the course of about a week, you should begin to notice smoother, brighter-looking skin. You may also see an improvement in pigmentation or acne scars. As with any other skincare procedure, individual results may vary. It is important to follow all post-treatment instructions provided by your aesthetician to optimize your results.

How often should I get the VI Peel?

The frequency of treatment depends on the specific needs of your skin and what goals you are trying to achieve. For most patients, a VI peel can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks. However, it is best to consult with your aesthetician or dermatologist prior to scheduling any additional treatments in order to ensure your safety and optimal results.

Are there any side effects I should be aware of?

The most common side effects of a VI Peel are redness, peeling, and mild irritation. These symptoms typically subside quickly after the peel and can often be managed using over-the-counter products or by following post-treatment instructions provided by your aesthetician. In rare cases, patients may experience more severe side effects such as blisters and swelling; if this occurs you should contact your physician immediately. It is important to remember that everyone’s skin is unique and individual results may vary.
