Vi Peel

As we age, our skin becomes wrinkled, spotted, scared, and starts to have an uneven tone. A Vi Peel is a safe and effective approach to achieving younger looking skin. If you want your skin to look younger, smoother, and healthier, it is time to consider a chemical peel. Family Med Spa offers peels for every skin type and tone.

A Vi Peel can address many skin issues including the effects of aging, acne, and even melasma. This medical-grade chemical peel softens wrinkles and face lines and helps to stimulate collagen production. Your skin will become firmer and more youthful. It is simply the best peel available.



What is a Vi Peel?

A Vi Peel is used on the face, chest or other body areas and improves the appearance of skin. It is a medical-grade chemical peel that is an effective treatment of many skin conditions including fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, sagging skin, acne and acne scars, age spots, and hyperpigmentation. A Vi Peel also increases collagen production and creates a more youthful appearance.


Who Can Get a Vi Peel?

A Vi Peel is safe for those with acne issues as young as 12 years old. It can also be used on all skin types including the darker tones of Asian, African-American or Latina. Each of the active ingredients, used in a Vi Peel, have FDA approval and are safe.



How Does It Work?

A chemical solution removes the top layers of skin, allowing the growth of new, smoother, more youthful skin. It sounds more intimating than it really is. A Vi Peel is virtually pain-free, has little to no downtime, and you can immediately return to your daily activities. Most importantly, the treatment is safe and effective on all skin types, even darker skin tones which have not historically responded well to other chemical peels.

In the past, chemical peels required skin pre-conditioning. The Vi Peel makes this step obsolete. The office session takes about 30 minutes. A chemical solution is applied to the skin and left for 5 hours. The peel is washed off at home. Typically, the procedure is completely painless but some will have a mild stinging during application.

Most clients only need one application, but you can repeat the Vi Peel every two weeks until you see the results you want. After the initial results are achieved, we recommend follow-up sessions every 3 months to keep your skin looking its best.




Recovery Process

After a Vi Peel, your skin may look red. This is normal and goes away shortly after the treatment. You can return to your regular daily activity immediately, but the peel must stay on the face for 5 hours. Exercise and other strenuous activity should be avoided. You should not wear makeup during the peel, but you can apply it once the peeling process is complete.

The peeling often begins the third day after to treatment and may last up to a week. It is highly recommended you stay away from direct sunlight and you may have some sensitivity.
