Vi Peel is an affordable, effective, almost painless superficial-middle peeling.
Vi Peel is a medical grade skincare treatment indicated for cosmetic concerns such as severe signs of aging and post-acne marks and skin trauma. V-peels can also help reduce the effects of photodamage to the skin and alleviate signs of melasma.
As with any chemical peel that targets the face or body, wee-peel works by exfoliating layers of the epidermis to make room for new, young cells. First, the cosmetologist evenly distributes the chemical composition throughout the skin. Chemical ingredients interact with the skin, creating microdamages on it, which subsequently lead to redness and flaking. This is how wee-peeling removes the top layers of the skin so that new tissue forms in their place. Additionally, peeling elements help the dermis to more actively stimulate collagen production.
Vee Peel is a very popular pharmaceutical grade chemical peel in the West that was developed by the Vitality Institute Medical Products in the USA. In part, its origin explains the name of the peeling procedure, which can be interpreted as a derivative of the word Vitality, but there were some puns here: you can also say that V-peeling is named after the fact that its recipe is based on five powerful components (Roman numeral V) . Another option for deciphering the name of this procedure is encoded in its epithet – Virtually Painless, that is, “practically painless.” The fact is that when developing Vi Peel, the authors focused on reducing pain and discomfort, which are usually associated with chemical peeling. It is noteworthy that V-peeling was originally created by a doctor from the aforementioned institute with the aim of helping his daughter: she was suffering from the effects of acne. And only after some time this peeling began to be used to solve various aesthetic problems – from superficial scars to the elimination of wrinkles. And gained well-deserved popularity!
Vi Peel is considered one of the most effective medical peels today. Vi-peeling contains a unique cocktail of ingredients, in fact, in which lies the secret of the effectiveness of this procedure with a minimum of pain: Vi Peel provides simply amazing results! In addition, wee-peeling is carried out without any special skin preparation, and the rehabilitation time after it takes very little time.
Trichloroacetic acid – TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid): this component is needed for deeper penetration, scar treatment. Trichloroacetic acid also stimulates collagen growth.
Retin-A (retinoic acid) – a substance derived from vitamin A, is introduced into the composition for the most effective fight against wrinkles (the action is comparable to “yellow peeling”).
Salicylic acid – beta-hydroxy acids (BHA), acts as an exfoliant, and also normalizes biochemical processes on the surface of the skin.
Phenol – has antiseptic and analgesic properties; it is also used as a vehicle, providing a more active penetration into the skin of other ingredients.
Vitamin C is ascorbic acid, which has antioxidant properties and works as a gentle brightener. It also provides a gentle exfoliation.
One of the differences between a Wee Peel and other chemical peels is that the former also contains an anesthetic. This further helps to reduce patient discomfort during this professional skin care routine. Patients who have had Vi Peel typically report a tingling sensation at the beginning of the process, which disappears as the anesthetic begins to take effect.
Vee-peeling is unique in some aspects – it can be used for patients of almost any age and gender for the following purposes:
for sufficiently deep cleansing of all skin types (according to Fitzpatrick from I to VI),
to eliminate the signs of aging, primarily wrinkles and spots on the skin,
to improve skin tone and texture,
for the treatment of hyperpigmentation and melasma,
to cleanse the skin and normalize sebum regulation (for acne), as well as reduce scars after acne,
for the prevention of aging by stimulating the synthesis of collagen and elastin,
to reduce enlarged pores,
to improve the condition of the skin with acne (indicated for patients over the age of 13).
Vee peels are used to reverse the damage caused to the skin by ultraviolet light, but one of the unique indications is to improve the condition of the skin in the periorbital zone. So, wee-peel is indicated to eliminate dark circles and crow’s feet under the eyes (for comparison: today there is no other peeling that could be used in the area of sensitive skin around the eyes).
Chemical peels are generally intended to improve the overall condition of the skin, and are generally used on many areas of the body (with the exception of the mucous membranes or sensitive areas such as the eyelids – these areas should be avoided as the skin is too thin and will not properly the use of reagents may cause severe injury and burns). Wee-peeling is usually used on the face, neck, arms and chest/décolleté.
During the healing process, the skin will peel off and may look reddened or slightly swollen. Do not use facial skin care products other than moisturizer until the skin is completely healed.
According to statistics, Vi Peel provides visible results within 7 days (although results vary between patients. In any case, during this time, the skin on the face will appear healthier, smoother, clearer, with a balanced tone, radiant and youthful.
As with most chemical peels, it is recommended to repeat the procedure every three to four months to maintain the effect. In the beginning, Vi Peel can be done every two weeks. However, this peeling is not recommended as a long-term treatment. A skin care professional can individually prescribe a line of professional beauty products to help maintain healthy skin.
You should not expect instant results from superficial peeling. The first improvements come after 2-3 procedures.
Every medal has a flip side, and this also applies to peeling. Before deciding on this procedure, consult a beautician. Self-activity in this matter does not bode well up to the aggravation of problems.
With exacerbation of acne and irritation, peeling can worsen the situation. It is necessary to consult a doctor.
If you are taking strong drugs, such as retinol, peeling may also be unsafe. The specialist of the A.Maks Aesthetics Med Spa help you choose the best treatment option based on the needs of your skin.
