As we age, the skin becomes thinner, loses firmness and becomes pigmented from years of sun exposure. Persistent acne and acne scars are also a very common complaint for teenagers and adults alike. A series of chemical skin peels such as the Vi Peel Precision line offers patients a safe and highly effective solution. The Vi Peel can improve the skin’s tone, texture, luminosity and overall appearance with minimal downtime and discomfort. Combined with the Vi Derm skincare products included as part of the treatment, the benefits of the peel will continue at home by keeping the skin looking smooth and healthy in the long-term. Additionally, the Vi Peel is not exclusively a face peel. It can rejuvenate skin on the back of the hands, feet, neck, chest, back or stomach. It has also been shown to reduce difficult-to-treat bumps on the backs of the arms known as keratosis pilaris. A big advantage of the Vi Peel is that it’s very versatile and safe for all ethnicities and skin types.

The star ingredients in all Vi Peels are Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) and Retin-A (retinoic acid). These powerful proprietary pharmaceutical-grade acid blends promote tighter, smoother, clearer and even toned skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Other supportive ingredients are salicylic acid, which removes dead skin and is an anti-inflammatory and Phenol, which traps harmful free radicals and provides numbing to skin during treatment. Finally, L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is an antioxidant that protects the skin from sun damage and pollution as well as brightens. Furthermore, Vi Peel recently introduced the Precision Plus specialized peel. It incorporates Kojic acid and Hydroquinone for addressing more advanced cases of hyperpigmentation. Between the two peeling treatments, Precision and Precision Plus offer a comprehensive solution for correcting pigmented and textured acne scars, sun spots, melasma, wrinkles, aging skin, pore size and more. This peel does not contain glycolic acid.
After the chemical face peel application, skin can feel tight, warm like you have a mild sunburn, and look slightly pink or red. It’s normal for the redness and blotchiness to persist for the next couple of days. It can take a few days for patients to experience peeling skin. In most cases peeling usually begins on the third day and can continue for another 1-2 days. By day six, most peeling has subsided and the skin will continue to improve over the next week. Most patients report their skin looks the best 10-14 days after the peel so it is best to plan your skin treatment around important dates or events. Your experienced clinician at Azala Medical Aesthetics will explain the details of the chemical peel procedure and how it can help you achieve your skin improvement goals. Pricing for a series of treatments depend on where you’re located, the condition of your skin and the level of results you’d like to achieve.
