If your skin feels dull, aged, or is riddled with skin imperfections that won’t respond to your morning and evening skincare routine, you may be the perfect candidate for a VI Chemical Peel. At CAS MediSpa in Bloomington, IN, we offer this popular chemical peel that can transform the complexions of patients with all different skin concerns and goals.
How Does a VI Chemical Peel Work?
The VI Chemical Peel is the number one peel among skin specialists because it improves some of the most stubborn skin imperfections through a painless treatment process. During the treatment, the VI Chemical Peel will initiate a process called chemexfoliation. The acids in the solution will reach beyond the epidermis, which is the top layer of the skin, into the deeper layers. This peel exfoliates the dead skin cells, forcing the body to create new skin cells.
Removing the older, damaged skin cells opens the door for new skin cells to take their place, which helps treat hyperpigmentation, smoothens lines and wrinkles, and makes the skin look healthier. It also helps improve skin texture by eliminating those dead skin cells. There are different strength peels available, so patients with all skin types and goals can undergo a VI Chemical Peel with the formula right for their skin.
What Does It Treat?
One of the reasons that the VI Peel is so popular is that it can meet the needs of different patients with different skin types and concerns. This line has developed a series of different peels that can target different skin concerns. Some patients need the lightest peel because they have sensitive skin that is reactive and more prone to redness, irritation, and inflammation. Other patients require a deeper peel to address more complex skin concerns.
Whatever the case and whatever your needs, we can choose the right VI Peel to target your specific skin concerns. Whether aging, acne, or discoloration is your primary concern, this chemical peel can target different problems during one treatment to help you achieve uniform, youthful, and healthier-looking skin. The VI peel effectively exfoliates the skin to improve skin health and target specific skin imperfections. Specifically, it can treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- General skin scars
Why Chemical Exfoliation Matters
You can schedule treatments to physically exfoliate your skin, but some skin concerns require a depot level of exfoliation, and that’s where chemical exfoliation comes in, specifically chemical peels. The VI Peel is a form of chemical exfoliation that can reach into the deeper layers of the skin, deeper than many physical exfoliants can. In doing so, it promotes cellular turnover and heals the skin with a powerful combination of acids and anti-aging ingredients.
Chemical Vs. Physical Exfoliation
There are two primary types of exfoliation: physical and chemical. Physical exfoliation involves the use of physical exfoliants to remove the dead skin cell barrier from the top layer of your face. Some examples of physical exfoliation include scrubs, dry brushing, dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, and the application of other products that contain visible physical exfoliants to remove dead skin.
Chemical exfoliation uses a combination of acids and anti-aging ingredients to dissolve the dead skin cell barrier. Depending on the strength of the peel, some formulas may reach into the deeper layers to promote collagen production and stimulate cellular turnover to target some of the more visible signs of aging and skin imperfections. The VI Peel delivers chemical exfoliation and exfoliates the skin by dissolving the top layer of dead skin cells, preventing you from achieving healthy, glowing, youthful-looking skin.
Your Skin Needs Both
Both chemical and physical exfoliation is important to healthy skin and is an important part of any skincare routine. However, chemical exfoliation can address some of the more stubborn skin imperfections by improving the rate at which your body creates new cells and increasing collagen production, targeting aging and skin imperfections from the inside out.
The Importance of Scheduling a Professional Grade Peel
Once you determine that you want to add a chemical peel to your skincare routine, it’s important that you schedule a professional peel performed by an esthetician who knows how to apply and perform the peel without damaging your skin. There are many different products marketed as at-home chemical peels, and some people even find a way to purchase peels marketed for professional estheticians and buy them to perform at home.
However, attempting to perform a skincare treatment meant only for professionals can hurt your skin more than help it. There are many different techniques involved during a chemical peel, and if you leave the acidic combination on for too long, the results can be catastrophic, resulting in burns, scarring, or other forms of skin damage.
Leave Peels to the Professionals
For that reason, it’s important that you schedule your peel at a medspa so that a professional esthetician can help improve your skin with a treatment that’s right for you. At Cas Medispa, you can trust your skin to our expert estheticians, who will take every step possible to improve your skin and develop the right treatment plan for your unique needs.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
A chemical peel is not meant to be a one-time treatment. Instead, it’s a treatment that you should add to your skincare routine as directed by your esthetician. The best results following a VI peel appear after completing a series of treatments based on the needs of your skin. During your consultation, one of our estheticians will evaluate your skin in person and determine how many chemical peels you will need to achieve your skin goals.
What Happens During a Treatment?
During a typical VI peel, your esthetician will apply the peel solution to your freshly clean skin. Once she has effectively covered your desired treatment area, she will leave the peel on your skin for a specific amount of time so that it can effectively exfoliate your skin and target your skin concerns. Once that time elapses, she will remove the solution from your skin, using a neutralizing agent, and then proceed with completing the treatment.
When Will I See Results?
You will see some immediate results after your treatment is over. However, the best results come within weeks of following your treatment plan as your body responds to the chemical exfoliation by creating new skin cells and increasing collagen production. You’ll see the most noticeable results after completing your esthetician’s recommended number of peels.
Will I Peel?
Some patients peel post-treatment; others do not. Whether you will peel depends on your skin sensitivity, how it reacts to the treatment, and the strength of the peel used during your treatment. Once we design a treatment plan it’s right for your skin, we can give you more details about whether or not you will peel in the days following your treatment.
If you do peel, it’s important that you follow the aftercare directives provided by your esthetician. Don’t pick at your peeling skin because it could cause skin damage or scarring. Also, keep your skin hydrated using products recommended by your esthetician to promote the best results.
Is a Chemical Peel Painful?
We can’t speak for every chemical peel on the market, but as for the VI Peel, it delivers a completely painless treatment. Patients love the VI Peel so much because it doesn’t cause discomfort but does improve the skin in a way that their home skincare products cannot. If you’re looking for a painless yet effective treatment to help you get younger-looking skin, the VI Peel is the perfect solution.
Am I a Candidate?
