Does Your Skin Need a Pick-Me-Up?

Treatments that hyper-focus on specific skin concerns can be highly effective.
But sometimes, your skin craves a little of everything — from cleansing, exfoliating, and smoothing to brightening, toning, and hydration.

Here’s where VI Peel Original comes in. It is one of our most popular treatments at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, and with good reason. Thanks to the delicate balance of effective yet gentle ingredients, this peel gives your skin an overall boost without causing irritation.

VI Peel Original: The Original, All-Round Chemical Peel

At our practice, you can choose from six chemical peels known as VI Peels.

Most of these target specific skin problems, such as aging, hyperpigmentation, active acne, or scarring.

VI Peel Original is different. Unlike other peels from the VI series, this treatment is suitable for all age groups and skin types and can benefit a wide range of skin concerns. It gently refreshes, rejuvenates, and resets your skin with minimal to no irritation.

VI Peel Original is particularly well suited for treating:

  • Sensitive skin
  • Rough-textured skin
  • Keratosis pilaris (chicken skin)
  • Early signs of aging
  • Dull, lackluster skin
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation and sun spots

How Do VI Chemical Peels Work?

VI Peels are medium-depth chemical peels that break through the top layer of your skin, also known as the epidermis, reaching into the middle layer or the dermis underneath. The specially formulated blends of potent active ingredients penetrate and exfoliate your skin, breaking down dead cells and stimulating the production of new skin layers.

This accelerated exfoliation smooths your skin’s texture and helps decrease the appearance of pigmentation issues and signs of aging. The result? Supple, glowing skin and a younger-looking complexion.

The procedure itself takes only 30 minutes. Your esthetician will remove any oil, dirt, and impurities from your skin and apply two layers of the chemical blend. The treated area will then “frost” or turn white, which is temporary.

You must wash off the peel with a mild cleanser four to six hours later. The dead skin usually starts to peel three days after the treatment. In most cases, the shedding lasts seven to ten days. When the peeling stops, it will reveal a refreshed, glowing complexion.

Dos And Don’ts After A Chemical Peel

Proper aftercare is critical to avoiding potential complications and maximizing the effects of your treatment.

Be sure not to apply any creams or lotions before washing off the peel. After that, apply a post-peel protectant as instructed by your esthetician.

Stay away from harsh chemicals while your skin is peeling. Don’t get any facial procedures. Use a gentle moisturizer for sensitive skin, and wash your face with a mild cleanser.

Most importantly, stay out of the sun as much as possible. If you must go outside, wear SPF 50+ sunscreen and a hat.

Are There Any Side Effects To Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are non-invasive treatments with minimal side effects.

Complications are even less likely with VI Peel Original: It’s a peel for all skin types that is well tolerated even by sensitive skin. Most people experience mild numbness and tingling when the esthetician applies the chemical peel, but no significant discomfort.

Other possible but rare side effects include:

  • Dry skin
  • Itchiness
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Blistering
  • Inflammation
  • Burning pain
  • Discoloration
  • Allergic reaction
  • Infection
  • Scarring

Consult with your physician if you experience any of these symptoms.

Are You A Good Candidate For VI Peel Original?

VI Peel Original suits all age groups, skin types, and skin tones.

However, you may be at a higher risk of developing skin discoloration if you have a darker skin tone or use estrogen, so we recommend booking a consultation before getting the treatment to learn how to avoid unwanted side effects.

You shouldn’t get VI Peel Original or other chemical peels if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
