Leaving yourself to fry like a piece of turkey bacon seemed like a great idea on your college spring break, but like your choice in hotel venues, your concept of skincare has likely matured a bit — and left you searching for that “do-over” button.
Cue Vi Peel – a gentle and effective chemical peel that’ll rid your face of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and more caused by elemental damage.
Fanatical Skin & Ink is offering specials on Vi Peel services now through March, so we asked owner and founder Nicole Johnson to answer a few questions on everything Vi Peel — how it works, the benefits and of course, if it hurts. (hint: It doesn’t).
Q: How is the Vi Peel different from other peels?
A: Without exception, obsolete peels of the past epitomize the “No pain, no gain” approach to skin care. Before the Vi Peel, the deeper the peel, the more painful, the more downtime, the better the results. The Vi Peel is the first peel to combine the strongest and most effective acids, yet it’s virtually painless with little downtime.
Q: What will the Vi Peel do for my skin?
A. It tackles skin problems at the cellular level rather than just burning skin off. Thanks to the concerted actions of its many acids and vitamins, it will help erase fine lines and wrinkles, shrink enlarged pores and build collagen and elastin which tighten skin. It is extremely effective in reducing or eliminating hyper pigmentation including melasma, the most difficult pigmentation issue to correct. The Vi Peel also provides excellent results for acne.
Q: How many peels can you do and how far apart should they be done?
A. For most patients, peels should be done three to four times a year starting at puberty to repair sun damage that is already present, and to avoid permanent scarring for those affected by acne.
The frequency of the peel depends on various factors, and will be determined by your skincare professional. For extremely damaged skin, the Vi Peel can initially be done once a month to get quicker desired results.
Q: How long will the Vi Peel take?
A. Your appointment will take only about 20 minutes or less.
Q. What types of skin respond well to the Vi Peel?
A. The many innovations that created the Vi Peel combine to allow ALL skin types to enjoy the benefits of the peel. For the first time, patients with darker skin types can experience anti-aging and restorative skin repair previously unavailable.
Q. Does it burn?
A. Not really. You will feel a slight stinging sensation for a few seconds which subsides almost immediately. The peel is applied topically, and numbing of the skin takes place after the first pass. Some patients may feel more comfortable using a fan or cold air breeze.
Q. What other areas can the Vi Peel be performed on?
A. The neck, arms, hands and chest all respond well to a Vi Peel.
Q.What kind of final results will I see after a single Vi Peel?
A. It takes about four days after you finish peeling for the skin to return to its normal PH and to see the final effects. The skin will look luminous and glowing. Hyper-pigmentation will be improved or eliminated, depending on the amount of damage. Tone and texture will be improved for a more youthful, radiant appearance.
