Initial Results vs. Long Term Results of VI Peel

You might have heard about Vi Peel as an advanced facial rejuvenation treatment. Its custom-made mix of Salicylic acid, Phenol acid, Retinoic acid and vitamin C can give you glowing skin on the face, neck, chest and hand regions. However, before you decide to undergo a Vi Peel treatment, it will be helpful for you to have reasonable expectations and an idea about the initial and long-term results of this peeling. First, you need to understand how Vi Peel works.

What Is Vi Peel?

Vi Peel is a type of chemical peel used to correct the skin conditions like scarring, hyper pigmentation, fine lines, acne and wrinkles. Melasma, a pigmentation issue of the skin, can also be significantly reduced by this peel. This peel can also help to stimulate the collagen production, thereby giving you younger looking and firmer skin. This peel works at the cellular level to tackle the skin problems. Due to the action of acids and vitamins in this peel, wrinkles are erased, enlarged pores are shrunk and collagen and elastin are produced, which help to tighten the skin. Vi Peel is suitable for all types of skin, and can give you a result comparable to that of multiple sessions of laser resurfacing.

Initial Results

Soon after having the peel, your skin looks red, tanned and sun burnt, and this may continue for 1 or 2 days. Your skin might feel tight in these two days and pigmented areas may look still darker. From the third day, the application starts peeling off. If you avoid sun exposure and manual peeling for the next 2 days, Vi Peel will work properly and result in an uniform skin tone. From the sixth or seventh day, you can start noticing visible differences.

Your acne scars, wrinkles, fine lines and sun damage are all significantly reduced and new skin starts to replace the peeled skin. You can see an improvement in the clarity, tone and texture of your skin as days pass by. When your acne scars and sun damage are extensive, then one Vi Peel session might not be enough for achieving a satisfactory result. After a month, you can go for a second session of Vi Peel; however, after this, the next peeling must be done only after an interval of 3 months.

Long Term Results

After a week of the treatment, you can see improvement in the glow and radiance of your face due to the increased production of collagen. Results of Vi Peel are not permanent and can last for 3 to 4 months. However, the results you obtained from this Vi Peel can be prolonged if you regularly follow certain skin care tips.

You need to give a proper skin-care routine to your treated skin and avoid applying harsh cosmetics on it. Avoid sun exposure for longer times, and always wear sunscreen. Do not exfoliate at least for a month after this procedure, as it may increase the redness and irritation of the already exfoliated skin. In order to maintain the glow of the skin, you may have to repeat this process 3 to 4 times every year.
