FAQ´s Chemical Peels
1. How is the Vi Peel different from other peels?
Obsolete peels of the past, without exception, epitomize the “no pain, no gain” approach to skin care. Before Vi Peel, the deeper the peel, the more painful, the more downtime, the better the results. Vi Peel is the first Next Generation Aesthetic. It is painless, yet produces dramatic visible results in just days with little downtime.
2. Will results be long lasting?
Like everything else in life, human skin needs maintenance. The Vi Peel’s wonderful results will last as long as skin care is maintained, sun exposure is moderate and preventive aging with the Vi Peel is performed three or four times per year and, in between, skin care is optimized with the second Next Generation Aesthetic, the Vi Derm™ Skin Care System.
3. How many layers of skin does the VI PEEL remove?
This question really applies to the old conventional peels, where action was specific to one ingredient and depth could be estimated. Instead, the VI Peel has multiple modes of action because of its ingredients. It behaves like a superficial peel in relation to pain and downtime, but yields results equal to a medium depth peel, as long as it is applied vigorously to damaged areas. Also, patients using special products such as Retin A, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, vitamin C and hydroquinone will get a deeper peel.
