If you are having a hard time with your skin concerning acne, pigmentation, texture, and tone, a VI Peel may be a great fit for you!
What are the benefits with a VI Peel for acne?
- Increases cellular and clears pores
- Eliminates acne bacteria
- Reduces redness and inflammation
What ingredients are in the VI Purify Peel?
The VI Purify Peel uses a blend of different acids, including trichloroacetic acid (TCA), Kojic acid, salicylic acid, retinoic acid, phenol, hydrocortisone and vitamin C. This combination of acids helps to exfoliate the top layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells, unclogging pores, and promoting cell turnover.
Why is the Vi Purify Peel an effective treatment for acne prone skin?
The salicylic acid in the VI Purify chemical peel is particularly effective for treating acne-prone skin. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that can penetrate the oil in your pores, helping to break down and remove the debris that can contribute to acne formation. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness and swelling associated with acne.
In addition, the Vi Peel purify exfoliates the top layer of the skin and encourages the growth of new, healthier skin cells. This can help reduce the appearance of acne scars and promote a smoother texture.
What is the downtime with a Vi Purify chemical peel?
The VI Peel is considered a medium-depth peel, so there can be up to 7 days of downtime. Immediately after the peel, your skin may appear red and feel slightly sensitive. Over the next few days, the top layer of skin will gradually peel off, revealing fresh, new skin underneath. It’s important to follow the post-peel care instructions provided by your skincare professional to ensure optimal results and minimize any potential complications.
What to expect during your VI Peel for acne treatment?
The procedure begins with cleansing your face to remove any makeup, dirt, and oils. This ensures that the peel solution can penetrate the skin effectively.
Following the cleanse, the VI Peel solution will be applied to your skin using a specialized applicator or brush. You might experience a tingling or mild stinging sensation as the peel solution is applied. This sensation is usually temporary and subsides quickly.
After the peel solution has been on your skin for the appropriate amount of time, the skincare professional will apply a post-peel toner and a moisturizer. These products help soothe the skin and initiate the healing process.
When is the best time to do a VI Peel?
You are able to have a VI Peel done at any time of the year.
What is the post care for a VI Peel?
You will receive specific post-peel care instructions from your provider to follow in the days and weeks following the treatment. This includes guidelines for cleansing, moisturizing, and using sunscreen.
After your VI Peel, you can expect your skin to start peeling on or around day 3 to day 5 and 6. This is a natural part of the exfoliation process and can vary in intensity depending on the peel’s depth. It’s important not to pick at or force the peeling skin to come off prematurely.
Sun protection is crucial during the peeling process and beyond. Your new skin will be more sensitive to the sun, so wearing sunscreen with adequate SPF and avoiding direct sun exposure is essential.
