VI PEEL®

The VI Peel® is a powerful, medium-depth chemical peel that penetrates the top layer of skin, called the epidermis, reaching into the dermis underneath. By this, it can provide corrective change, hitting multiple conditions, all at once. VI Peels are gentle enough that they can safely be used on your face, chest, eyelids, hands, and back.

The VI Peel® uses a product trademarked by Vitality Institute Medical Products, and according to the Vitality Institute, this type of peel can be used on all skin types and tones.

PROCESS

After the application is complete, it is common for the patient's skin to be flushed and have a slight tanned appearance for a few days: Peeling is expected to begin within 3 days post VI Peel and expected to end by Day 7. It is extremely important to not peel or pick at the skin as this can cause adverse side effects such as irritation, scarring and/or pigmentation.

Patients who tend to have oilier skin, may experience less visible peeling which is normal due to an increase in sebum production. Once oil production recalibrates, patients may see an increase in visible peeling.

BENEFITS

ACNE

Acne is a common inflammatory skin condition. It’s often treated with topical products or oral medication, but chemical peels may also help.

The procedure can:

  • Break down comedones (clogged hair follicles)
  • Decrease oil production
  • Kill bacteria
  • Reduce inflammation
  • Increase absorption of topical treatments

Light and medium chemical peels are usually used to improve acne..

ACNE SCARS

As acne heals, the skin creates new collagen fibers in an attempt to repair lesions that have been created by inflamed skin.

The production of new collagen fibers can create hypertrophic scars, which are bumpy and raised, or atrophic scars, which create depressions in your skin.

A chemical peel can help by exfoliating the top skin layer, which removes excess collagen. Medium chemical peels are typically recommended for acne scars.

AGING SKIN

Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that causes redness, swelling, and red bumps. If it also causes acne-like breakouts, it’s known as acne rosacea.

Sometimes, a chemical peel can help relieve these symptoms. It’s typically recommended for mild or moderate rosacea.

HYPERPIGMENTATION

In addition to acne scars and age spots, chemical peels can improve other forms of hyperpigmentation, such as:

  • Uneven skin tone
  • Melasma
  • Freckles
  • Surgical scars
  • Scars due to injury
  • Discoloration due to sun damage

PRECANCEROUS GROWTHS

Actinic keratoses are rough skin patches caused by years of sun exposure. They’re known as precancerous growths, since they can potentially turn into skin cancer.

A deep chemical peel can remove these growths and decrease your risk of skin cancer

.

ROSACEA

Rosacea is an inflammatory skin condition that causes redness, swelling, and red bumps. If it also causes acne-like breakouts, it’s known as acne rosacea.

Sometimes, a chemical peel can help relieve these symptoms. It’s typically recommended for mild or moderate rosacea.
