There are a variety of different chemical peels that are available; although many require weeks of pretreatment, moderate discomfort, and a long recovery. At Dr. Takhar’s Cosmetic Clinic we offer Medical Grade Peels and The VI Peel.
The VI Peel is a unique treatment is designed to reverse the early signs of aging and sun damage with little downtime. In about a week, patients will see an improvement in the skin’s tone and texture. Large pores are reduced and areas of hyperpigmentation can be significantly decreased with the VI Peel.
VI Peel FAQ
What is a VI Peel?
A VI Peel is a medium depth chemical peel, consisting a unique blend of five acids. In a little over a week, patients will see a reduction in fine lines, decreases acne scarring, reduce hyperpigmentation, and a refreshed appearance.
How does the VI Peel work?
The VI Peel will gently remove the top layers of unhealthy, dead skin. This allows newer, healthier skin to show, leaving a brighter, firmer, younger looking appearance. The VI Peel will also encourage the body’s natural Collagen production, further smoothing and plumping the skin.
How is a VI Peel performed?
The VI Peel is quickly applied at our office, taking only a few minutes, after which time patients are free to return home. Patients are given detailed aftercare instructions, as the peel will need to stay on for at least four hours, before being washed off. Specific products will be sent home with patients that will need to be immediately applied, assisting the peeling process. SPF 30 sunscreen should be worn daily to protect the skin as it heals.
Am I a good candidate for a VI Peel?
The ideal candidate for a VI Peel will be a patient looking to improve their appearance and reverse the early signs of aging, but is unwilling to commit to the long recovery period associated with traditional deep Chemical Peels. The VI Peel is safe for all skin tones and ethnicities.
