Everything you Need to Know About the VI Peel

Feb 22, 2023 | Featured, Skin Care, Spa Services

VI Peel is our newest peel on the scene and we could not be more excited to offer this incredible treatment!

The VI Peel is a medium- depth chemical peel designed to improve the texture, tone, and clarity of your skin. It works by removing the top layer of damaged skin cells, revealing smoother, brighter, and more youthful-looking skin underneath. The VI Peel is safe, fast, and effective, and can help reduce signs of aging, sun damage, and acne. 

Pre-Care:

  • 6 months prior to your appointment stop using Accutane. 
  • 72 hours prior to your appointment, make sure to skip retinol and other products with active ingredients.
  • Directly before your appointment minimize sun exposure and heat on your face. This includes hot showers or working up a sweat while exercising.

Treatment:

The treatment starts with VI Peel’s proprietary gentle cleanser. After the cleanse, your esthetician will begin applying the peel to your skin—each sweep around the face with the peel is called a ‘pass’. The treatment will include 6-8 passes and last around 15-20 minutes.

Immediate After Care:

The treatment solution must stay on for four hours. During this time do not wash your face or apply makeup. Your skin may appear yellow, red, or tan and moderate redness and/or swelling may be present. 

The PEELING Process—what will it be like?

The VI Peel is a medium-depth peel which means you will experience a good amount of sheet peeling. Peeling will typically start by day two with the brunt of the shedding taking place on days three – six. It is very important that you do not pick or tug on the skin!—this can cause scarring, irritation, redness, and hyperpigmentation. Make sure to be very gentle when washing and drying your face, and to wear sunscreen! We will supply you with an aftercare kit that supplies a week’s worth of gentle cleanser, post treatment balm, SPF, and post treatment towelettes.  After the peeling has stopped you will find your skin to be more even toned, have less hyperpigmentation, and improved dark spots/scarring.

Post Care:

  • Absolutely no Retinol or Actives for 7-10 days after treatment!
