If you have skin, it’s aging. Your skin is affected by UV light in the sunshine and by the dryness in the air and the heat of your shower and countless other factors. Because your skin is aging, you may be looking for ways to refresh it. Here, we want to let you know why the VI peel may be a great way to do just that.
Chemical peels have been around since the 1990s. Early on, most peels were pretty aggressive. If you had a peel, you knew to expect some redness and discomfort followed by at least a few days of flaking and peeling. Well, like technology has been refined, so have the methods used for chemical exfoliation. Today, treatments like the VI peel dislodge cellular debris from the skin’s surface with a perfect blend of powerful ingredients. The formula is strong enough to give you results with just one treatment (which increase as you repeat peels every so often!) but gentle enough to have minimal side effects like peeling.
The Magical Ingredients of a VI Peel
Each VI peel is formulated with:
- Phenol – For less noticeable lines and creases
- Retin-A – For softer lines and wrinkles
- Salicylic Acid – For inflammation reduction
- Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) – For tighter, smoother skin
- Vitamin C – for more radiant skin
Boosting Beauty with VI
A Vi peel achieves noticeable improvements that include:
- Smaller pores
- Less obvious lines and wrinkles
- Improved tissue firmness due to increased collagen
- Reduced inflammation from acne and lighter acne scarring
- Softer, smoother skin
- Enhanced radiance
- Reduced signs of melasma
- Elimination of precancerous cells
At the Center for Cosmetic Surgery & Medi-Spa, we pride ourselves on making the best recommendations for each patient. The VI peel offers substantial benefits and is often our treatment of choice for men due to the thickness of their skin. In addition to noticeable improvement, patients appreciate that they can resume normal activities right after their peel without feeling self-conscious about redness or swelling. Once the skin does begin to peel, it is barely perceptible and easily managed with moisturizer.
