Who Is an Ideal Candidate for the VI Peel?

Who Is an Ideal Candidate for the VI Peel?

About a million Americans turn to chemical peels to refresh and renew their skin, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, which ranks peels among the top five minimally invasive cosmetic procedures in the United States. Of course, peels wouldn’t be in such demand if they didn’t yield great results. Beyond that, chemical peels are popular because of their variety and versatility.

The VI Peel is a revolutionary peel that helps you enjoy a fresher, more youthful complexion. At Center for Women’s Health in Richmond and Sugar Land, Texas, our team offers this prescription-only peel for patients of all skin types. Here’s how to tell if the VI Peel might be a good choice for you.

VI Peel 101

This high-quality peel comes from the Vitality Institute, and if there’s one word to sum up the benefits of this peel, “vitality” just might be the perfect fit. The VI Peel refreshes your skin’s look by lifting off the upper layer of dead, dry skin — the layer where sun damage, fine lines, and other imperfections show up.

The special combination of chemicals in the medium-depth VI Peel is designed to give you the benefits of a deeper peel without the recovery time associated with stronger peels.  In addition to removing the upper layer of dead, dull skin, the peel promotes collagen renewal, helping your skin rebuild itself from the inside out.

After a peel, most people experience redness for a few days, followed by a few days of peeling. Our team provides you with complete instructions to care for your skin and protect it from the sun during your healing time.

Within a week after your peel, you notice a difference. Your optimal results appear in 4-6 weeks as new skin cells and collagen develop as a result of the treatment.

VI Peels are great for your face, but they’re a good choice for refreshing and rejuvenating the skin on your back, shoulders, decolletage, and hands, too.

Best candidates for the VI Peel

The VI Peel can be a great choice for anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of:

While the VI Peel is considered safe for all skin tones, if you have darker skin, there may be an increased risk of hypopigmentation. We discuss that with you during your initial consultation.

The VI Peel solution is designed for safe, effective use. However, you shouldn’t get the VI Peel if you have an active skin infection or if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding. 

It’s also not designed to treat more advanced signs of aging, like deep lines and folds or sagging skin. The VI Peel can still offer benefits for your skin’s tone and texture, but if you have deeper lines, you might want to consider other complementary treatments, like Botox® or dermal fillers.

Help your skin look its healthiest best

The VI Peel is an excellent option for people looking to restore their skin’s vitality and glow. Talking with one of our providers is the best way to learn if this popular peel is right for you.
