VI PEEL FAQ’s

How many treatments are required to show an improved look?

A single VI Peel will achieve significant repair and add a healthy glow to the skin. It is a true, restorative and painless repair of damaged skin including sun damage and acne. Best of all, it is a great “preventive maintenance” peel for younger skin that has no visible signs of damage.

What types of skin respond well to the VI Peel?

The many innovations that created the VI Peel combine to enable the entire continuum of skin types to enjoy the benefits of the peel. For the first time, Afro-American and darker skin types such as some Asian and Latin skins can experience anti-aging and restorative skin care that was previously unavailable.

Does it burn?

Not really. Patients will feel a slight stinging sensation for a few seconds which subsides completely almost immediately. The peel is applied topically, numbing of the skin takes place after the first pass. Some patients may feel more comfortable using a fan or cold air breeze.

How badly will I peel?

The skin peeling associated with the VI Peel is a light, fluffy peel that will start on day three and generally be finished by the end of day four. The peeling is easily hidden by moisturizer. In some cases, the peel is virtually invisible.

What will the patient look like right after the VI Peel and during the next few days?

The skin will look slightly tan to red immediately after the peel. On days one and two the skin will feel slightly tighter with no Visible signs of having a peel except for looking slightly tan, as if the patient just returned from a relaxing weekend at a resort. Any pigmented areas might appear slightly darker, which is a good sign. On about day three, the patient begins to peel. The first signs of peeling usually begin around the mouth area, continuing for a day or two. By day six or seven the patient is done peeling and the results are dramatic!

What about normal activities after the VI Peel?

There are no restrictions. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after the peel.

How many peels are needed?

The peel may be repeated as often as every two weeks, if necessary, for damaged skin. Our recommendation for average skin would be once every three months to prevent damage and the underlying ageing of the skin. The physician will evaluate the patient’s damage, goals and expectations and make an appropriate recommendation for ongoing skin care. We preach the “dentilization” of skin care for optimum results.

My patient has a social event coming up, can she wear makeup after the VI Peel?

While the long term goal is to eliminate the need to use any makeup, it may be worn at any time after the peel solution has dried. Makeup should not be applied on the days that the skin is peeling, just moisturizer. Makeup can then be resumed at any time after the skin peels.

How long will the VI Peel take?

The facial cleansing and peel application typically take 30 to 45 minutes.

What kind of final results will the patient see after a single VI Peel?

It takes about four days after the patient finishes peeling for the skin to return to its normal pH and to see the final effects. The skin will look luminous and glowing. The patient will feel refreshed with slightly tighter skin. Hyper-pigmentation will be improved or gone, depending on the amount of damage. Texture will be improved with an overall more youthful appearance.

What should be used on the skin in conjunction with the VI Peel?

Our first line of defense is tretinoin with a prescription line of products that takes the patient through the necessary steps of maintaining new skin. Skin care products appropriate for your skin type and condition should be used on a daily basis to maintain new skin appeal.

Will the patient’s skin be more sensitive after the VI Peel?

The skin will only be more sensitive, if at all, during the peeling process itself. The patient may experience up to four days of sensitivity until pH of the skin is replenished.

What other areas can the VI Peel be performed on?

Face, neck, hands and chest all respond well to a VI Peel.

Can the patient go in the sun after the VI Peel?

Sun exposure should be limited and adequate protection with a good sunscreen should be used. As part of the post-peel skin care kit, sunscreen is provided along with a moisturizer. However, the VI Peel was created to be practical. The only days where exposure to the sun should be seriously avoided are days three and four, when the skin is peeling, to avoid uneven exposure. After that, the patient can enjoy moderate sun exposure, continuing regular “dentilized” skin care maintenance.

What about exercise after the VI Peel?

Again, the VI Peel was created to be practical. We only ask that the solution be left on the skin for five hours prior to exercising, washing it off immediately before commencing exercise.

Can cold sore sufferers have a VI Peel?

. Of course. In some cases, medication may be recommended prior to the peel. If the patient breaks out with a sudden cold sore the day of the peel, often the VI Peel will eliminate the sore and medication may be applied immediately after the peel
