WHAT IS VI PEEL ™?
The Vi Peel is a gentle yet powerful medical-grade chemical peel for the treatment of acne, acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, age and sun spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, rosacea, enlarged pores, oil balancing and overall skin health.
The Vi Peel is safe and effective on all skin types and light to dark skin. This can be used on the face, neck, chest, arms and other areas of the body and is the only peel safe for the under-eye area. It is painless and requires minimal downtime. With the Vi Peel, the magic is in the formula. A blend of Trichloroacetic Acid, Retin-A, Salicylic Acid, Phenol, and Vitamin C. A powerful combination to give you professional results every time. These ingredients work together to safely remove the damaged layers of the skin, promote cellular turnover, and refine the surface layer for a smoother, clearer, firmer skin that has a more youthful and radiant appearance.
HOW IS VI PEEL ™ DONE?
A Vi Peel is relatively painless for most people, but more sensitive types may experience a mild to moderate burning or tingling sensation that is tolerable. A cooling device may be used to minimize any discomfort.
During a Vi Peel the solution is evenly applied in two phases: one to penetrate into the skin cells on the skin’s surface and the other to go deeper into the dermis where toxins and dead skin cells are hiding. The solution dries quickly and you are free to resume daily activities, but must wait 4 hours before washing it off.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF VI PEEL ™?
There are no immediate effects of the Vi Peel; it takes 2 to 3 days before skin begins peeling and it will continue to do so for up to 6 days. During the peeling process skin may have unusual coloring with red, brown, or yellowish tones, but more commonly it looks like a slight sunburn that is flaking off.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF VI PEEL ™?
Once the skin finishes peeling, minor improvements are visible, but full results take 4 to 6 weeks to appear, at which point skin is smoother, firmer, clearer, with a more youthful and radiant glow than before.
Epionce™ Peel System
Formulated to improve the appearance and texture of the skin by increasing cell turnover, the physician-strength Epionce Peel System provides the same corrective benefits as a Jessner’s with minimal downtime. The Epionce Peel System improves skin aging, hyperpigmentation, acne and rosacea with many other benefits.
What to Expect Prior to Treatment
Your skin will be prepared and cleansed with a cleanser to remove any make-up or skin care followed by an application of EpiPrep.
What to Expect During Treatment
The Epionce™ Peel System is a 2 part system:
Part 1: A layer of Sal-e will be applied to the skin, which may feel hot or burn. This solution will stay on the skin for a couple of minutes until it has neutralized. This process can be repeated up to three times in a visit. When the solution is removed the burning sensation may briefly return.
Part 2: A layer of Mal-e will be applied. You may experience a prickly, hot sensation which should level out after a few minutes. Layers of the product can be added back to back and will remain on the skin for a predetermined time. This part of the peel system is neutralized and removed with a solution that may bring back some of the uncomfortable sensation.
Note that if at any time during the treatment the peel becomes too uncomfortable, it can be neutralized.
What to Expect After Treatment
Your skin may feel tight and warm like a sun burn. If needed, cooling measures can be taken to decrease any discomfort immediately following the treatment.
We ask that you avoid direct sunlight for at least 48 hours.
What You Should Know
Your skin may be red for a few hours post treatment. You may also have a warm, sunburn-like sensation lasting from a few hours to a couple of days. Some clients experience mild flaking or peeling up to one week after their treatment. Your skin may feel rough and dry during this time.
