FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. How is the VI Peel different from other peels?
A. Peels of the past have emphasized the “no pain, no gain” approach to skincare. Deeper, more painful peels with extended downtime were thought to produce with better results. The VI Peel is painless, yet produces dramatic, visible results in just days.
Q. Does the VI Peel make the skin thinner?
A. No. By sloughing off old cells, skin renews itself at a faster rate. The skin actually thickens because the dermal matrix is stimulated to make more collagen an elastin.
Q. How many treatments are required to show visible results?
A. A single VI Peel will achieve significant repair and impart a healthy glow to the skin. It is a true restorative, painless repair of damaged skin cells resulting from UV exposure and acne. Best of all, it is an aging preventative for younger patients with no visible damage.
Q. Does it burn?
A. Patients will feel a slight tingling sensation for a few seconds which subsides almost immediately. The peel is applied topically, with numbing of the skin taking place after the first pass.
Q. What about normal activities following the VI Peels?
A. There are no restrictions. Normal activities may be resumed immediately after the peel. For patients who exercise routinely, low impact aerobic activity would be advised for 72-96 hours.
