How the VI Peel Works
The VI Peel is a unique blend of 5 acids designed to target multiple conditions.
This powerhouse acid penetrates the skin inhibiting melanin production and increasing cell turnover.
TCA then targets signs of aging by boosting collagen and exfoliating the skin.
Salicylic acid prevents inflammation by killing bacteria, suppresses sebum production and cleansing the pores.
This is the secret weapon that numbs the skin allowing for a painless application.
Finally, the ascorbic acid is a powerful antioxidant that reverses free radicals, evens skin tone and helps prevent future damage.
Post Peel Care Tips
The first two days your skin will look a little tan, bronzed, or pink. It may also feel a bit tight before the peeling begins.
As a rule, treat it like a sunburn: avoid sun exposure, avoid sweating and avoid heat.
During the peeling phase you must avoid sun exposure. Even after the peeling has subsided your new skin will be sensitive to UV light. Protect your investment and reapply your sunscreen when outdoors.
If any products in the post peel kit sting or irritate beyond your tolerance reach out to your practitioner for options to use instead.
The amount of visible peeling you will experience varies greatly. You will peel as much as your skin needs to peel.
Each morning, apply the Post Treatment Repair Cream and SPF 50+ Sunscreen, and apply as needed throughout the day. Continue use for the 7-Day peeling process.
Safe products to use during peeling: VI Derm Gentle Purifying Cleanser, Post Treatment Repair Cream, SPF 50+. (From your home you can also use a gentle cleanser, Aquaphor, and sunscreen.)
Days 3, 4 and 5 are the typical days of peeling. By day 6 most exfoliation has subsided.
Typically, peeling begins on the third day, starting around the mouth then peeling outward. The forehead and neck will be the last areas to peel.
We recommend cleansing your face prior to showering and keeping your face protected from hot water.
When cleansing your face use your fingertips only. Avoid using washcloths or facial machine brushes during the first week.
While the skin is exfoliating avoid pulling, picking, rubbing and any premature removal of skin. This could lead to significant irritation and possible hyperpigmentation. Never force or peel the skin off in sheets.
When peeling make sure to keep your body hydrated and your skin moisturized.
The Post Treatment Repair Cream may cause slight sensitivity when first applied but it quickly subsides.
If you are excessively dry or irritated when peeling, add a light layer of Aquaphor to provide a protective barrier.
Resuming Skin Care Products
Non-Actives: Can be resumed once peeling has subsided, usually day 6-7.
Actives: Can be resumed once peeling has subsided and sensitivity has returned to normal, usually day 7-10.
Physical Activity / Exercise:
Refrain for 72-96 hours after peel application. Inducing excessive perspiration can lead to PIH or blistering.
Scheduling the Next VI Peel:
VI Peels should be scheduled every 4-6 weeks (for best results)
Additional Skincare Treatments:
It is recommended to wait for a minimum of 2 weeks before any treatment that creates exfoliation of the skin. (Includes facials, extractions, waxing, and threading)
Consult with your practitioner for other treatment options.
