Your Secret Weapon for a More Youthful Complexion

Fine under-eye wrinkles. Emerging crow’s feet and frown lines. Less firm and elastic skin. Rough texture and a dull, lackluster complexion. Sooner or later, we all experience these first signs of aging.

The good news is that chemical peels can help delay and even reverse these concerns.

Chemical peels are quick and non-invasive skin care treatments that use blends of potent chemicals to promote accelerated exfoliation.

By removing the outer layers of dead cells, chemical peels improve skin texture, boost the regeneration of new skin layers, and give you a glowing complexion with a more youthful appearance.

Introducing: VI Peel Advanced

At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we offer six uniquely formulated chemical peel treatments known as VI Peels. Each peel targets a specific skin concern, such as hyperpigmentation, sun damage, or acne scarring.

Our best-selling VI Peel Advanced is a special peel for enhanced collagen stimulation that combats aging by:

  • Softening fine lines and wrinkles
  • Boosting collagen and elastin production
  • Improving skin firmness and elasticity
  • Supercharging the regeneration of new cells
  • Smoothing rough skin texture
  • Promoting a brighter, more vibrant skin tone

What Chemicals Does VI Peel Advanced Use?

VI Peel Advanced employs a special blend of powerful anti-aging ingredients that speed up the shedding of dead skin, increase cell turnover, and boost your skin’s natural healing and rejuvenation processes.

  • 10-12% trichloroacetic acid (TCA): TCA exfoliates dead skin cells and stimulates new skin cell growth.
  • 10-12% phenol: Phenol gently numbs your skin and helps decrease the appearance of freckles and discoloration.
  • 10-12% salicylic acid: Salicylic acid breaks down dead skin, reducing the appearance of acne, acne scarring, age spots, melasma, keratosis pilaris (chicken skin), and other imperfections.
  • 4% vitamin C: Vitamin C brightens and hydrates your skin, boosts collagen production, protects against sun damage, and can minimize hyperpigmentation and under-eye circles.
  • 0.1-0.4% tretinoin: Tretinoin is a form of vitamin A that effectively treats acne and sun damage and can help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.

What Does The Procedure Entail?

Our VI Peel Advanced treatment takes only 30 minutes. After gently cleansing your skin to remove any dirt and oil, your esthetician will apply two layers of the chemical solution. You may experience some numbness and slight tingling at first but no major discomfort.

Your skin will then “frost” or turn white. While not the most flattering look, this is completely normal and temporary.

When you get home, wash off the peel four to six hours after the procedure using lukewarm water and a mild cleanser. The dead skin layers will start peeling in about three days, gradually revealing the healthy, glowing skin underneath.

In seven to ten days, you will have a refreshed, glowing complexion. With proper aftercare, the benefits can last up to 14 days.

Vi Peel Aftercare

Proper aftercare is essential to get the most benefit out of the procedure and prevent potential side effects.

  • Moisturize: Don’t apply creams or lotions until you wash off the chemical peel. After that, apply a gentle moisturizer and post-peel protectant as directed by your esthetician.
  • Cleanse: Wash the treated area with water and a mild cleanser for sensitive skin.
  • Avoid the sun: Stay out of the sun. If you must go outside, wear heavy-duty sunscreen, big sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat.
  • Avoid facial treatments: Don’t get any procedures on the treated area until your esthetician gives you the green light.

Who Can Get Advanced Vi Peels?

VI Peel Advanced is generally safe for all skin types and tones. This anti-aging treatment is best suited for people aged 40 and above.

However, if you have dark skin or take estrogen, you may be at a higher risk of developing skin discoloration, so be sure to consult with your esthetician to learn how to avoid complications.

Due to a lack of research, you should avoid the treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
