What is VI Peel?

VI Peel is a chemical peel used for skin rejuvenation and improvement. It is a medical-grade peel that helps to address various skin concerns, including acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture.

VI Peel typically contains a combination of ingredients, such as trichloroacetic acid (TCA), salicylic acid, retinoic acid, and vitamins. These ingredients work together to exfoliate the outer layers of the skin, promoting the growth of new, healthier skin cells.

The peel is applied to the skin by a trained healthcare professional, and the process involves a controlled chemical exfoliation. The depth of the peel can vary depending on the specific formulation and the desired results. VI Peel is often used on the face but can also be applied to other areas of the body, such as the neck, chest, and hands.

What should you avoid before your VI Peel?

Before undergoing a VI Peel at Northwest Beauty and Wellness, it’s essential to follow specific guidelines to ensure optimal results and minimize the risk of complications. Here are some general guidelines to follow before getting a VI Peel:

  1. Consultation: Consult your skincare professional at Northwest Beauty and Wellness before scheduling the VI Peel. They will assess your skin type, concerns, and medical history to determine your suitability for the peel.
  2. Discontinue Certain Skincare Products: Avoid using retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), beta hydroxy acids (BHAs), and other exfoliating agents at least one week before the peel. These products can increase skin sensitivity, and using them with a chemical peel may lead to irritation.
  3. Sun Protection: Minimize sun exposure and use sunscreen with a high SPF in the days leading up to the peel. Sunburned or tanned skin can increase the risk of complications.
  4. Avoid Certain Medications: Inform your provider about any medications you are taking, especially those that may increase skin sensitivity or the risk of complications. They may advise you to stop using certain medications temporarily.
  5. Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is advisable to postpone getting a VI Peel, as the safety of chemical peels during pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been well studied.

Always follow the specific pre-peel instructions, as circumstances may warrant different recommendations. Following these guidelines helps ensure a safe and effective VI Peel experience.

What can you expect after your VI Peel treatment?

The post-treatment experience following a VI Peel can vary from person to person, depending on the individual’s skin type and how well they follow post-peel care instructions. However, here are some common expectations after a VI Peel treatment at Northwest Beauty and Wellness:

  • Immediate Effects: After the peel application, you may experience some warmth or tingling on the skin, which is generally expected. The skin may also appear slightly red.
  • Peeling Process: The peeling process typically begins a few days after the treatment. This phase can last about 3 to 7 days, during which the outer layers of the skin may peel or flake. The extent of peeling can vary, and not everyone will experience significant visible peeling.
  • Temporary Discomfort: Some individuals may experience mild discomfort or tightness during peeling. Resisting the urge to pick or peel off the skin manually is essential, as this can lead to complications and interfere with the healing process.
  • Reduction in Imperfections: As the peeling process progresses, you may notice improvements in skin texture and tone and a reduction in certain skin imperfections such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and acne blemishes.
  • Avoid Sun Exposure: It is crucial to avoid direct exposure during peeling and beyond. Sunscreen application is essential to protect the newly revealed skin, which may be more sensitive to UV rays.
  • Follow Post-Peel Care Instructions: Your skincare professional will provide specific post-peel care instructions. This may include using gentle skincare products, avoiding certain active ingredients, and maintaining proper hydration.
  • Multiple Sessions: Depending on your skincare goals, your healthcare professional may recommend a series of VI Peel treatments spaced several weeks apart for optimal results.

It’s important to note that individual experiences may vary, and the timeline for peeling and recovery can differ. Adherence to post-peel care instructions is crucial to achieving the desired outcomes and minimizing potential complications.

However, amidst the excitement, it’s crucial to set realistic expectations. VI Peel works its magic gradually, and understanding the journey is vital to reaching the destination. We’ll guide you through what you can realistically expect during the before-and-after phases, ensuring that your anticipation aligns seamlessly with the transformative nature of this skincare ritual.
