How do VI Peel treatments work?
VI Peel® contains a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients specifically formulated to rejuvenate and help prevent future damage in the skin. The VI Peel® treatments help improve the tone, texture, clarity of your skin and provide anti-aging benefits and stimulating the production of collagen, for firmer, more youthful skin. Vi Peel also works well in conjunction with lasers, injectables and routine skin care regimen. The peel provides superior results for all skin types (Fitzpatrick 1-6).
What areas can be treated?
VI Peel is a treatment mainly for the face. It can also be applied on other areas of the body such as the neck, chest, hands, shoulders, and back for those suffering from “bacne”.
How many treatments will I need?
Our guests have seen amazing results after having just one treatment! VI Peel treatment is suitable to receive every 8 to 10 weeks as directed by your aesthetician. We highly recommend a series of 3 to 5 treatments per year, along with proper home care for the maintenance of healthy skin. For maximum results, your aesthetician will create a unique skincare regimen for your skin goals and needs.
Am I good candidate for VI Peel treatments?
VI Peel® is a wonderful solution if you are seeking to improve your skin’s tone, reduce hyperpigmentation, combat acne conditions and eliminate fine lines & wrinkles. Its unique chemical formula is extremely successful by removing the damaged surface of the skin, allowing firmer, healthier skin and new collagen to reveal from underneath. The anti-aging ingredients are non-invasive and conveniently much less painful compared to other chemical peel procedures. Wondering if VI Peel treatment is right for you? Schedule a free consultation today by calling us at 832-460-4200.
How is the VI Peel procedure performed?
We will prep the treatment area by applying a facial cleanser and massaging it onto the skin. Washing the skin will also help remove oils or any buildup of debris from dead skin. Once the skin is fully cleansed, then the peel is spread topically over the treatment area. The process can take anywhere between 30-60 minutes to complete depending on the required treatment and anatomical site. Clearstone will provide you with a complimentary VI Peel take-home kit of essential products that includes a cleanser, SPF 50, a Plus Peel pads & protectant, and written instructions on how to activate the peeling process. It is imperative to follow the instructions to achieve optimal results.
What does a VI Peel treatment feel like?
Our guest report little to no discomfort throughout the course of the treatment. Minor stinging sensation and penetration of the peel may feel enhanced and is completely normal. Following your chemical peel, your skin may have a slight tint. Some guests have reported skin tightness and sensitivity and is expected to normalize over several days. If you are feeling any discomfort during the peeling process please do not hesitate to contact our office at 832-460-4200.
How long will it take to recover?
The VI Peel treatment is a medical grade chemical peel that is expected to produce significant visible exfoliation of your skin. As such, you will likely experience perceived social downtime. We expect the areas to resolve with continued flaking – which may take up to 10 days. Do not pull or peel the flaking skin from the treated area as hyperpigmentation, scarring, or discoloration will likely result. In addition, hyperpigmented, or darker areas of your skin, will likely “pepper” to the surface – which is not to be mistaken as scar tissue or the occurrence of further darkening of your skin.
What aftercare plan do I need?
Your aesthetician will provide post-care treatment instructions, an essential peel kit, and soothing balm to avoid any skin irritation. It is vital that you follow the aftercare plan. Avoid prolonged direct sun exposure, heat, and sweating from exercising until the peeling process has completed. Please keep in mind this may take up to 14 days. Once desired results are achieved, maintenance peels are recommended to sustain the improvement in the tone, complexion and laxity of the skin. The frequency will depend on the individual’s own genetics, age and lifestyle. For best results and to further enhance your post-treatment, we recommend Clearstone’s wonderful line of Rhonda Allison®, EltaMd®, and SkinBetter Science® products.
