If you're considering VI Peel, this outline will give you a basic understanding of the procedure, when it can help, how it's performed, and what results you can expect. It can't answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on the individual patient and the surgeon. Dr. Walker is more than happy to clarify any misunderstandings, please contact her office with any questions or concerns you may have.
What happens during a VI Peel?
The VI Peel treatment is very convenient as it can be performed in Dr. Walker's office and requires no pre-treatment.
After the skin is cleaned, VI Peel will be applied topically to your skin. Patients typically experience a warm, tingly sensation that quickly subsides. The procedure takes only 20 to 30 minutes, but must leave the peel on the skin for five hours following the appointment.
With VI Peel there is little or no downtime. Peeling lasts 2 to 3 days and is easily managed with the post-peel kit that is included with the peel. For a week or two following the peel it's best to avoid exfoliating products like glycolic acid and retinols. Avoid direct and prolonged exposure to the sun. As well, resist the temptation of pulling your peeling skin off - it's important that you let it peel naturally.
Once your skin has completely recovered and is finished peeling, you will notice a visible improvement in your complexion. Your skin's appearance should continue to improve for the next 4 to 6 weeks, becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier, and more youthful looking.
The best candidates for a VI Peel
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.
Dr. Walker believes the best candidates for any procedure are physically healthy and have realistic expectations about the results. Additionally if you are pregnant, please let Dr. Walker and she can work with you to determine if this procedure is suitable.
