What is a VI Peel?

A VI Peel is an advanced chemical peel that combines the power of Retin-A with a blend of other agents to reduce signs of aging, correct skin discoloration, and even out skin tone. It penetrates deep beneath the surface layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which helps restore natural elasticity. For our Alpharetta clients, the result is smoother, firmer, and brighter-looking skin with fewer lines and wrinkles.

What are the benefits of a VI Peel?

A VI Peel offers numerous benefits for our Alpharetta clients. This powerful peel can improve skin texture, reduce acne, age spots, and other imperfections, minimize pore size, and help reduce discoloration from sun damage. It can also be used to treat melasma, fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

How does the VI Peel work?

The VI Peel works by stimulating collagen production and increasing cell turnover. It also helps reduce inflammation and increase hydration, making it beneficial in addressing a variety of skin conditions for our Alpharetta clients. The peel is gentle enough that most of our Alpharetta clients can return to their normal activities shortly after treatment.

What skin concerns does the VI Peel address?

The VI Peel can be used to treat acne, melasma, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, and other signs of aging. It can also reduce pore size and improve skin texture. With regular use, it can help maintain healthier-looking skin that has a more even tone.

Is the VI Peel suitable for all skin types?

At our Alpharetta med spa, we have used the VI Peel on all skin types. Even better, it can be customized to suit individual needs. However, it is important to discuss any skin concerns you might have with one of our experienced aestheticians before starting your treatment.

Can the VI Peel be used on sensitive skin?

Many of our Alpharetta clients have sensitive skin, and the VI Peel works extremely well for them when they tell us about their skin sensitivity first. The peel can be customized and adjusted according to individual needs, which makes it suitable for even the most delicate skin types.

Can the VI Peel be used on darker skin tones?

We have often used the VI Peel on darker skin tones for our Alpharetta clients. However, it is important to discuss any concerns you might have before treatment, as certain adjustments may need to be made for optimal results.

Does the VI Peel help with acne and acne scars?

Fortunately, the VI Peel can help with both acne and acne scars. It penetrates deep beneath the surface layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which helps reduce inflammation and restore natural elasticity. This can help reduce scarring over time and improve overall skin texture.

Can the VI Peel be used on the body, or is it only for the face?

The VI Peel is suitable for both the face and body. It can be used to treat signs of aging, discoloration, scarring, and other skin concerns in areas such as the neck, chest, hands, and arms.

Can the VI Peel be combined with other cosmetic treatments?

For many of our Alpharetta clients, we combine the VI Peel with other treatments such as facial fillers and laser therapies. It is important to discuss any skin concerns with one of our experienced aestheticians before combining treatments for the best results.

Can the VI Peel be customized for different skin concerns?

We often customized the VI Peel to address different skin concerns of our Alpharetta clients. For example, it can be adjusted depending on an individual’s age and type of skin, as well as any specific areas of concern. This makes the peel suitable for a wide range of skin types and conditions.

How long does a VI Peel treatment take?

The treatment time for a VI Peel can vary, depending on the area being treated and the individual’s skin type. A single session can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.

What should I expect during my VI Peel treatment?

Before beginning your VI Peel treatment at our Alpharetta med spa, your aesthetician will discuss the procedure with you to ensure that it is the best option for your skin type and desired results. During the session, a small amount of pre-treatment solution will be applied to your skin to prepare it for the peel. Once that is complete, the solution will be applied in layers until it has saturated your skin. After this process is finished, the VI Peel will remain on your skin for five to 20 minutes before being wiped off with a damp cloth or cotton pad.

How many VI Peel treatments are needed to see results?

Typically, our Alpharetta clients need three to five treatments to achieve maximum results. However, it is important to discuss your individual needs with one of our aestheticians before treatment to ensure optimal results.

How long do the results of the VI Peel last?

The results of the VI Peel can last anywhere from a few months to a year or more, depending on individual skin type and condition. To maintain the effects of the peel, regular follow-up treatments may be recommended.

How often should I get a VI Peel?

The frequency of a VI Peel will depend on individual needs and skin type. The peel can be done every four to six weeks for maximum benefits.

Is the VI Peel painful?

Our Alpharetta clients happily remark that the VI Peel is not painful. Most people experience a mild tingling sensation during treatment. However, it should not be uncomfortable or cause any significant pain.

Are there any side effects or downtime associated with the VI Peel?

The VI Peel is a safe and well-tolerated treatment. The most common side effects include mild redness, swelling, and dryness of the skin. It is important to follow your aesthetician’s recommended aftercare instructions to reduce any potential risks. There is no downtime associated with the peel, although it is important to avoid direct sunlight and use sunscreen for the first week after treatment.

What should I avoid before and after a VI Peel treatment?

Before treatment, we ask our Alpharetta clients to avoid using any harsh skin care products or exfoliants that could irritate the skin. After treatment, we recommend avoiding direct sunlight and wearing sunscreen when outdoors. Additionally, you should refrain from using any irritating products or engaging in activities such as swimming or hot tubbing for the first few days after the peel.

How soon can I wear makeup after a VI Peel treatment?

We recommend that our Alpharetta clients wait at least three days after treatment before using any makeup products. After those three days, we recommend that you use a gentle, non-irritating formula that is specifically designed for sensitive skin. Additionally, it is important to avoid wearing any harsh or heavy makeup, such as foundation or powder, during the first week after the peel.

Is the VI Peel safe for men?

Men love the VI Peel, as it can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions and concerns, such as back acne, wrinkles, acne scars, and sun spots.

Can the VI Peel be used during pregnancy or while breastfeeding?

The VI Peel should not be used during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. It is recommended to wait at least six months after giving birth before receiving a VI Peel treatment.
