Vi Peel – The Woodlands
Chemical peels can correct numerous skin conditions and are an excellent alternative to laser treatments and other skin resurfacing procedures. For Houston area men, women, and teens wishing to improve their overall skin texture and tone, The Woodlands plastic surgeon Dr. Sugene Kim recommends skin rejuvenation with a single, proven-effective chemical peel formulation – the Vi Peel.
How does the Vi Peel chemical peel work?
The Vi Peel addresses a variety of skin conditions, including acne, sun damage, actinic keratosis (precancerous skin cells), melasma and other skin discolorations by providing gentle, yet powerful skin exfoliation and stimulating collagen production through a series of treatments spaced about two weeks apart.
The Vi Peel is safe for use on the face, neck, chest and hands to reduce the signs of aging and may also help soften fine lines and wrinkles.
After your initial Vi Peel treatment series is complete, results can be simply maintained by undergoing Vi Peel treatments every three months or so, depending on your needs.
Vi Peel side effects
Because the Vi Peel produces such dramatic results, it is often assumed that it carries numerous risks and potential side effects. Wrong! Potential side effects with Vi Peel are minimal, and most patients experience only mild redness and skin sensitivity after treatment.
About three days after your Vi Peel, the treated area should begin lightly peeling, shedding old, dead cells to reveal rejuvenated skin with improved tone and texture. Peeling typically lasts only for a few days, unless a more aggressive peel is performed, in which case a second round of peeling may begin around a week after your Vi Peel.
Peeling is normal after any chemical peel and isn’t really considered a side effect; however, if you pick or pull at peeling skin as it sloughs off, you may cause hyperpigmentation, a potentially long-lasting side effect.
Additionally, exposing your skin to sun after a Vi Peel can cause skin to darken, so sun protection is extremely important immediately after your Vi Peel and throughout the healing process. It also helps maintain your Vi Peel results longer.
Vi Peel ingredients
The Vi Peel contains a proprietary blend of safe, effective ingredients and combines a variety of vitamins and peeling agents, including trichloroacetic acid (TCA), to deliver optimal skin resurfacing results with very little discomfort and downtime. No pain relief or sedatives are needed to comfortably undergo a Vi Peel, and no skin conditioning needs to be done prior to treatment.
