Why Chemical Peeling?
Chemical peels are used to safely remove the damaged outer layer of the skin. Chemical peels promote collagen remodeling which helps create younger looking skin. Chemical peels can be used as treatment to:
- Treat adult and teenage acne
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles, creating smoother and softer skin
- Minimize scars including acne scars
- Decrease pigmented lesions
- Minimize pores
- Melasma and Rosacea
What Chemical Peels are available?
Your Wellness Center MedSpa offers six different in-office Vi Peels. Based on your individual skin conditions and needs, your provider will select the most appropriate peel for your skin.
Where can I have a chemical peel?
The most common place to use the Vi Peel is the face and neck. However, the Vi Peel can also be applied to the chest, back, arms, elbows, hands, legs, and knees.
Pre and Post Care?
No skin preparation is required the week before having the Vi Peel. Before you leave the office after having your Vi Peel, you will be given a take-home kit with all the necessary products for post care. The cost of the take-home kit is included in the cost of the Vi Peel. No additional products will need to be purchased.
How long will my skin peel?
Immediately after the Vi Peel, your skin may look slightly red or even tan for the first 48 hours. On day 3, the peeling will begin. For the superficial Vi Peels, the peeling process lasts the next 2-3 days. For the medium depth peels, the peeling process can last up to 5-7 days.
How often will I need a Vi Peel?
You can have a Vi Peel every month. Typically, regular use of the Vi Peel is recommended 3-4 times a year.
