VI Chemical Peels

Chemical peels reduce fine lines, minimize acne scars, and improve overall skin texture. Learn more about the VI Chemical Peels we offer at YES MD Atlanta.

What is a Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which causes it to exfoliate and eventually peel off.

This treatment aims to improve the skin’s appearance by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, treating acne scars, minimizing sun damage, and improving overall texture and tone.

Different types of chemicals are used during a chemical peel depending on the desired outcome and the individual’s skin type. These chemicals penetrate different skin layers, causing controlled damage to stimulate collagen production and promote new cell growth.
Chemical peels can be categorized as superficial, medium-depth, or deep peels based on the depth at which they penetrate the skin.

Superficial peels are milder with minimal downtime, while deep peels require more extended recovery periods. It is essential to consult with a skincare professional who will assess your specific needs and recommend an appropriate strength for your unique concerns.

How Do VI Peels Work?

VI peels use a unique blend of ingredients to exfoliate the skin and stimulate collagen production.

The peel contains trichloroacetic acid (TCA), salicylic acid, phenol, retinoic acid, and vitamin C. These powerful ingredients penetrate the skin layers and deeply remove damaged cells.

The peel is applied to the face or other desired areas during the treatment. The solution then works to break down dead skin cells and unclog pores. This process helps improve the skin’s overall texture, tone, and clarity.

The VI peel also stimulates collagen synthesis, which helps in reducing fine lines and wrinkles and improving elasticity. It can be used for various skincare concerns, including hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, melasma, sun damage, and rough textured skin.

Types of VI Chemical Peels

Different types of chemical peels are available, each designed to target specific skin concerns and offer different intensity levels. Here are the three main types of VI chemical peels:

The Vitality Institute Peel

This gentle peel can be used on all skin types, including sensitive skin. It helps improve skin tone and texture while reducing signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles.

The Precision Plus Peel

This intense peel targets moderate to severe sun damage, age spots, acne scars, and uneven pigmentation. It contains additional ingredients like hydroquinone that help lighten dark spots.

The Precision Peel

Similar to the Precision Plus Peel but without hydroquinone, this treatment is ideal for those with sensitive or darker skin tones that may be more prone to hyperpigmentation.

No matter which type you choose, a VI chemical peel will leave your skin looking rejuvenated, smoother, and brighter by removing dead surface cells and stimulating collagen production.

Benefits of Chemical Peels

Chemical peels offer a range of benefits for your skin, leaving you with a refreshed and rejuvenated complexion. Here are some advantages of this popular cosmetic treatment:

  • Improved skin texture: Chemical peels exfoliate the top layers of your skin, removing dead cells and revealing smoother, softer skin underneath.
  • Reduced signs of aging: Peels can diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots, giving you a more youthful and radiant glow.
  • Acne reduction: Chemical peels can unclog pores, reduce inflammation, and control oil production to help clear up acne-prone skin.
Chemical peels are customizable to meet your specific needs and concerns. Whether you want to address sun damage or simply improve your skin’s overall health and appearance, a chemical peel could be the ideal solution for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Suppose you’re considering a TCA chemical peel. Here are a few frequently asked questions:

A VI Chemical Peel is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses chemical solutions to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin. It helps improve skin conditions such as acne scars, sun damage, uneven texture, and hyperpigmentation. The peel involves applying a solution directly onto the skin, which will cause it to shed its top layer. This process stimulates collagen production and promotes the growth of new, healthy skin cells.

The duration of a VI Chemical Peel can vary depending on factors such as the specific treatment plan and desired results. Generally, most peels take around 30 minutes to an hour from start to finish. However, it's important to note that this time frame may include less preparation or consultation time with your skincare professional.

Following a VI Chemical Peel, you may experience some temporary side effects like mild redness or flaking of the skin for several days. This is normal as your old skiFAq layer sheds off and fresh skin surfaces. It's essential to moisturize daily during this healing process and avoid excessive sun exposure. Setting up a follow-up appointment with your provider can help track progress and address concerns.
