Chemical peels have long been used in cosmetic circles to brighten the complexion and rejuvenate the skin. The VI Peel is one of the newest and most effective peels, and has quickly become a favorite because it restores a healthy glow to the skin, and repairs damage. What are some of the other benefits of the VI Peel? Let’s find out.
What is the VI Peel?
The VI Peel is a chemical peel that improves the look of the skin after just one treatment. It can be used on the face, as well as the chest, hands, and neck, to correct imperfections such as acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. The Peel is suitable for all skin types.
The procedure is done in-office and only takes a few minutes. It involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which should remain in place for about 5 hours. The solution is removed by the patient at home, and within 3 days the upper layer of the skin starts to peel away. Total recovery time is about one week.
Benefits of the VI Peel
- Patient-friendly. When compared to older chemical peels that are very painful, especially when they penetrate deeply, the VI Peel is virtually pain free.
- The Peel includes Retin-A and Vitamin-C, which are beneficial for the skin.
- Improves skin tone and texture.
- Safe enough to be used in the eye area, as it can remove the fine lines around the eyes.
