Before you schedule your VI Peel consultation, it is crucial to understand the advantages of having the VI Peel for individuals with darker skin. The VI Peel is ideal for all skin types due to its proven results and safety. Persons of color may be pleasantly surprised by the bright revitalizing look of their skin post-peel.
Dark skin color protects the skin from the damaging ultraviolet rays of the sun. However, with aging, our bodies produce less vitamin C enzyme, which means the process of generating melanin for a darker pigmentation slows down.
This can result in uneven skin tone with dark patches and a dull complexion. As a peeling solution with natural lasting effects, VI Peels are designed to treat damaged skin, uneven skin tone, and complexion, no matter the skin tone.
The VI Peel is a safe, virtually painless, and effective peel that gradually resurfaces the skin, vanquishing wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, and brown spots from aging. The VI Peel solution cares for the skin by containing a mixture of:
Each ingredient targets a different layer of dead skin cells to help achieve a smoother texture and tighter pores without damaging the surface layers of the treated area.
Once the chemical solution is applied to the skin, it is allowed to dry for a specified amount of time. During this time, the solution works by removing the top layer of cells on the skin, known as the stratum corneum, revealing the fresher glowing skin underneath.
In addition, since only the surface layer of the skin is injured without interfering with the deeper skin layers, the skin’s appearance will improve after about 7 days. Patients may resume normal activities 24-48 hours after treatment with minimal to no side effects depending on the client.
The concept behind VI Peels is to give the best treatment of cosmetic dermatology to all people, no matter their skin tone. This is because the VI peel is formulated to only affect the top layer of the skin in which it is applied, without bleaching or lightening any areas permanently.
The skin naturally replenishes itself from the second layer down. So when you have a chemical peel done, it does not affect the melanin in your skin that gives your skin its color. It simply helps thwart the production of melanocytes from forming, making your top layer of the skin smoother, softer, and more even in skin tone.
However, your dermatologist must know about administering VI peels for darker skin tones.
Vi Peel skin treatments are designed for all skin types. The VI Peel treatments are an excellent choice for anyone who suffers from the following skin conditions:
A VI Peel is a quick, simple treatment available for improving your skin. But how can you find out more about what you should expect with this procedure? We'll look at the skin preparation routines, the VI peel procedure itself, and post-care tips so that you can get the most from your skin.
Before starting your treatment, your esthetician will also examine your skin and ask questions about the texture and appearance of your skin.
The esthetician will then explain both the benefits and risks of the VI peel and ask about any reactions to the VI peel you may have experienced in the past. This consultation can help determine whether a VI Peel is right for you.
The chemical peel treatment takes about 20 to 45 minutes. It begins with cleansing the skin to remove all makeup, oils, and dirt.
Immediately after, the therapist will apply a solution to your skin. The solution contains glycolic acid, the VI peel's active ingredient, as well as vitamin A and other minerals.
The solution is left to dry following the first exfoliation of the dead skin. This, in turn, stimulates collagen production and significantly reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
The therapist will apply a second layer of the topical solution to the treatment area and repeat the drying process.
The results are usually visible after seven days.
After one treatment, most clients notice an improvement in their skin texture, tone, and appearance. For optimal results, we recommend at least four VI Peels per year, about one per season!
A VI Peel can lighten age spots, diminish blackheads, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
The VI peel can also improve skin color; however, this depends on the individual and condition of the skin.
After the VI Peel treatment, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions provided to you by your clinician, as well as to only use the VI Peel products given to you in the peel kit. Further help and step by step instructions are available through the VI Peel app made available for smartphones. We always recommend creating an account and mapping your peel’s progress from days 1-7 post treatment!
