VI stands for Vitality Institute, a reputable company that has designed specialized chemical peel treatments, called the VI Peels, to meet the skincare needs of all different patients. These peels are safe for all skin types and tones and can treat some of the most common skin conditions, including sun damage, acne, hyperpigmentation, scarring, fine lines, and wrinkles.
There are six different medium-depth peels from this line that target different skin concerns. Some patients are better suited for one peel over the other based on complexion concerns, needs, and goals. One of our skincare experts will evaluate your skin and discuss your goals to determine which is right for you.
The Precision Plus Peel is a popular peel from this line that’s specifically designed to increase cellular turnover rate and target discoloration. It’s especially effective in patients suffering from different forms of skin discoloration, including post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, UV-induced pigmentation, melasma, and various types of sun damage. After treatment, patients can expect to see an improvement in their skin within one week.
The Purify With Precision Plus peel delivers all the benefits of the popular Precision Plus but also helps target acne and scarring. Those who want to treat both acne and hyperpigmentation will benefit from this peel. It eliminates dead skin cells, buildup, oil, and pore debris to help treat current breakouts and prevent future occurrences. It also helps reduce the production of melanin to brighten the skin and treat and improve hyperpigmentation.
If you want to add a chemical peel to your skin care regimen but aren’t sure how or don’t know where to begin, our skincare experts can help. They will evaluate your skin during an in-person consultation, learn more about your goals and concerns, and recommend the VI Peel that’s right for you.
Some patients start treatment with one peel and then switch to a different one based on their changing skin needs. We will create a treatment protocol right for your skin and then make adjustments as needed to continue perfecting your complexion on different levels.
VI Peels are quick, painless, and extremely effective chemical peels. From start to finish, they take approximately 30 minutes to complete. One of the benefits of this line of peels is that they’re virtually painless thanks to special ingredients in each peel that help keep patients comfortable throughout the treatment process.
Depending on your skin and needs, your esthetician may leave the peeling agent on your target area for a short time or a significant amount of time. Once it’s over, you can resume your normal daily activities.
Unlike some more potent chemical peels, the VI Peels require very little downtime. After your treatment, you won’t have to worry about extreme redness and irritation. Still, because these peels eliminate the top layer of the skin to expose a healthier, younger layer, you must be cautious about exposure to the sun.
You must limit sun exposure, specifically for the first week after your treatment, and always apply a high-quality sunscreen of at least 50 SPF to protect your skin. After your treatment, our esthetician will provide you with details about which products to use and which to avoid after your peel to enhance your results, nourish your skin, and achieve the best possible outcome.
VI Peels are versatile skin rejuvenation treatments that deliver visible improvements in the skin and can help patients with all skin types and tones reach their complexion goals. If you are looking to add a chemical peel to your skincare routine, a VI Peel is the perfect place to start. Our skin care experts will create a custom-tailored exfoliation treatment protocol that addresses your unique skin concerns and help you achieve glowing, healthy skin.
