How can we change time and go back to our youth? Or at least looking like we are in our 20’s. There are so many facials and products that offer temporary fix but sometimes it’s just not enough. Chemical peel might be your next line of defense. If you want a baby soft skin, no-more fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots or acne scars - VI Peel can take care of all your concerns.
Now I know the word chemical scares a lot of women into doing the treatment. However, they have come a long way to perfect the peel without leaving your skin irritated or causing extensive downtime. So here is everything you need to know about this revolutionary VI Peel treatment.
How long is the treatment?
The treatment itself takes 15-20 minutes. You can get the peel on your lunch break.
Step - by - Step Process!
1. The esthetician will deep clean your face or anywhere else you are going to do the treatment. (Yes! You can use the peel on your neck or chest area).
2. The rubbing alcohol will be applied all around your face to remove the remaining oils from your skin. It’s easier for the peel solution to penetrate your skin. Don’t mind the smell because it’s going to smell like chemicals, alcohol and other scents.
3. The treatment is applied.
After the treatment is applied, you will be given a post peel system that includes peel towelettes, protectant cream and an SPF-50 sun protectant; the instructions will be given and I suggest you follow it to a T.
How long is the downtime?
You will be pealing for 7 days so no sun or any outdoor activities. I started peeling around my mouth area and continued outwards. I personally didn't use the hydrocortisone cream because it tends to thinner your skin. Only use it when the tingling is unbearable. Don't use hot water to clean your face like in the shower. Try to only use cold water.
Does it hurt?
While you may experience some discomfort, it’s nothing more than how you would feel with a mild sunburn. In fact, the whole experience felt that way to me. Once the peel was applied to my face, my skin tingled and slightly reddened as it would with a sunburn. That lasted for about 36 hours until I started peeling.
However, whatever you do, DO NOT ITCH. You can get scarring from scratching the skin.
How does it help your skin?
If you have acne or acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, age and sun spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, rosacea, enlarged pores or oil balancing. It helps your skin look youthful and younger. I haven't used foundation in over 3 weeks.
How often can I do it?
I suggest you do it once a month or once every two months. My esthetician told me that for my skin type I would only need three sessions to perfect my skin. Talk to your esthetician first and see what they recommend since VI Peel isn't for everyone.
The VI Peel is the first peel to combine the strongest and most effective acids, without inconveniencing your daily life. You are going to see the results with VI peel so why not giving it a try. Especially now that we are wearing mask everywhere we go, it's a perfect time to do and quietly peel under the mask 🙂
