The physician-grade deep chemical Vi Peel will result in sloughing of the most superficial layer of skin treated. The skin that peels away contains dead skin cells, debris and the top of acne/pigmented lesions revealing youthful vibrant skin. The active ingredients include: TCA, salicylic acid, and Vitamin C.
This is an excellent starting point for individuals to begin to care for their facial skin and is recommended to be continued on a regular basis. Originally developed to treat acne, this physician-grade chemical peel provides a virtually painless treatment for almost all skin types and conditions. People of all ages benefit from 2-4 treatments per year to reverse sun damage and hyperpigmentation. It is a well-established and highly productive chemical peel that works synergistically and can be applied in a matter of moments.
After application, the pigmentation in the chemical causes the skin to take on a red/orange tinge for the first two days, which then leads to peeling of the outermost layer of skin for days 3-5 and sometime several more days. This peeling can be concealed well with the provided moisturizer and your personal makeup. Many people feel more comfortable not spending time in public while peeling, but you certainly may continue routine activities including work if you feel cosmetically comfortable doing so. We will also dispense a good sunscreen to use, as it is very important that treated skin is not exposed to sun. Medically you are stable to resume normal activities immediately after application with the definite exception of sun exposure.
