A VI Peel: How Deep Is It?

Beautiful Woman preparing to get Facial to her face | Get VI Peel at ReLux Medical Spa in Akron, Ohio.

We’ve all heard of chemical peels and how they exfoliate the skin, giving it a rejuvenated glow. Then there is the chemical peel known as VI Peel, which is regarded as having a medium depth.

The VI Peel causes a lot of redness initially, but this subsides quickly after application while leaving behind smooth skin with fewer blemishes over time. A VI peel tackles various skin issues, from fine lines and acne scars to sun damage, and is safe and effective for all age groups.

If you are looking for something that can make your skin glow from the inside out, then Vi Peel might be for you. But how deep is a VI peel until you consider it? We will tell you everything about it!

What is a VI Peel?

The VI Peel is an advanced medical-grade chemical peel that treats various skin conditions and imperfections. It’s not a laser treatment or dermabrasion. Still, it uses an agent that can cause temporary redness and swelling in the treated area. It is because the agent penetrates deep into pores and causes them to open up, which allows it to do its job more effectively.

Similar to other chemical peels, a VI Peel will exfoliate your skin and encourage the production of new proteins. It is frequently used to treat aging symptoms, improve skin texture, and treat pigmentary problems.

It is the most reviving procedure that provides instantly smooth, exfoliated skin. By cleansing it of impurities and exfoliating it, the peel starts to improve the top layer of your skin as soon as it is applied. The peel begins to peel off and encourages the formation of new skin cells, revealing refreshed, glowing skin.

What is VI Peel made of? 

The VI peel gently removes the outermost layers of the skin by combining trichloroacetic acid, tretinoin acid, salicylic acid, phenol, vitamin C, and other minerals.

TCA is a chemical peel that is used to treat acne and other types of skin issues. Retinoic Acid (RA) is a derivative of vitamin A that can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen synthesis in the skin. Phenol is an antiseptic, disinfectant, and astringent agent used to treat minor cuts or abrasions on the face, hands, or feet; it also helps improve blood circulation by contracting capillaries around wounds closed, allowing them to heal faster than if left untreated.

The activator solution is a base that’s used to activate the peel. It’s a mixture of phenol, alcohol, and water. It must be mixed with the peel before application for it to work correctly. Your pores and deeper layers of the skin may both be penetrated by the activator solution, which makes it easier to remove them following treatment.

How is the VI Peel beneficial?

For people seeking a painless procedure with immediate results, VI peels are ideal. Similar advantages to other light to medium chemical peels are provided by a VI Peel. Let’s see some of the most typical conditions it is used to treat:

  • reduces scars and acne
  • treats wrinkles and fine lines
  • enhances aging and sunspots
  • hyperpigmentation is reduced
  • improves rosacea and melasma
  • reduces pore size
  • balances the skin’s oils
  • enhances overall skin health

Are there some side effects?

Some side effects include itchiness, stinging or burning sensation, and peeling of the face lasting up to 7 days after application. However, these are temporary side effects and do not affect everybody.

The most common side effect is a mild burning sensation which will subside within one hour. Most people also experience redness around their eyes and cheeks due to the peel’s ability to promote blood circulation. Suppose you feel that your skin is becoming irritated by this product. In that case, it is recommended not to use it again until 24 hours have passed since using it last.

How deep is a VI Peel?

A deep peel is an acid treatment that uses acids to exfoliate the skin and remove dead cells. The most common acids used for this peel include glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and lactic acid (or alpha hydroxyl).

Peels of a moderate depth can enter the epidermis, like the VI Peel. These peels help to brighten dark spots brought on by sun exposure and are particularly effective for anti-aging therapies. A VI peel is a safe and effective way to get your desired results.

You can get a deeper peel, but you’ll have more downtime after it’s done. A deep peel is a somewhat invasive operation with a significantly more extended recovery period. A deeper chemical peel can irritate some people who don’t tolerate intense exfoliation treatments well. 

How soon after using the VI Peel can you expect the results?

The peeling process alone will make the skin more sensitive. You may experience up to four days of sensitivity until the skin’s PH is restored. Some individuals anticipate that their skin will look fantastic right away following a VI Peel; however, this is typically not the case.

You should be aware that your skin won’t appear precisely the same once the peel has been removed. You must be realistic and ready for this consequence. The region treated by the peel will often seem a little darker. It can still appear red and swollen over the following 24 to 48 hours.

We advise four follow-up treatments yearly to maintain skin looking beautiful and get the best results. Nevertheless, many people may make significant progress after just one session. An average post-peel will start to flake by day two and peel by days 3–5. The peeling will stop on day 6. Most patients stop peeling and have healthy, radiant skin by day 7!

Make an appointment for a VI Peel now.

While the VI Peel is an excellent product for those looking for something that can give them more intense results. Depending on the technique and treatment used, it can range from a superficial to a moderate peel. A variety of solid ingredients, including TCA, Salicylic Acid, Retin-A, and Vitamin C, are included in the peel in lesser amounts to enhance the general health of any person’s skin.
