VI-Peel® Las Vegas
What is a VI Peel®?
The VI Peel® is a specially formulated, medical-grade chemical peel designed to improve skin’s appearance when struggling with sun damage, acne, or the signs of aging. The skin on the face, hands, chest, or other areas are reduced in appearance, while youthful collage production revives the skin from the inside out.
VI Peels have proven effective in the treatment of numerous forms of skin damage, and can also aid in the removal of precancerous skin cells.
How VI Peel® Works
A unique chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the damaged surface layers, allowing the healthy skin underneath to be revealed, while collagen from within the tissue is encouraged to flourish.
Anyone seeking to improve their skin’s tone and reduce blemishes may be a candidate for a VI peel. The VI peel has been tested and used on individuals of a variety of skin tones, including Asian, African-American, and Latino skin types, which traditionally have not always responded positively to chemical peel treatments.
The VI peel was originally developed as a treatment for acne and acne scarring, and is still extremely successful at treating this sometimes frustrating condition in individuals as young as 12-years-old.
How is the Procedure Performed?
The VI Peel treatment is performed by our medical aesthetician. No pre-treatment is required before the peel, making the VI peel more convenient that other chemical peels. The treatment area is cleansed, and then the peel is spread topically over it. The process usually takes only 20 to 30 minutes to complete, and most patients remain comfortable throughout although a minor stinging sensation is normal.
The patient will be able to resume normal activity right away, but must leave the peel on the skin for five hours following the appointment. Contact Las Vegas plastic surgeon Stephen Miller MD today.
Following the application of the chemical peel solution, skin may appear reddish or tan for a brief time but this can be concealed with make-up. Cosmetics can be worn before and after the skin peels, but should be avoided during the actual peeling process.
Around day three following the procedure, the damaged surface layers of skin will begin to peel away, and will continue to do so for up to a week. While the skin is actively peeling, the patient should avoid the use of make-up, but is encouraged to apply moisturizers to minimize the appearance of peeling. The skin may be more sensitive while it is peeling, but this will fade when the peeling period is complete.
Patients can return to work or other daily activities immediately after receiving their VI Peel, though strenuous exercise should wait until after the first five hours after the chemical peel solution is applied.
