Chemical peels are one of the most effective, minimally invasive ways to improve the appearance of skin on the face without the need for surgery. Instead, a simple application of the peel is enough to strip away the dull, damaged outer layers of skin, revealing fresh, new skin that is stronger, healthier and looks fantastic.
VI Peel is a gentle but very powerful, medical grade chemical peel that is highly effective at diminishing the appearance of the signs of aging and improving its overall tone, texture and health. It does this by being a blended rather than single-acid peel. VI Peel contains a unique blend of five different acids, each of which is designed to target a specific, therapeutic action within the skin.
Retinoic acid: penetrates deep within the skin, inhibiting the production of melanin and increasing the rate at which cells reproduce, revealing fresh, new skin more quickly.
Trichloroacetic acid: designed to target the signs of aging, this acid exfoliates away dead skin cells and boosts collagen production to create smoother, firmer and stronger skin at the source.
Salicylic acid: responsible for killing bacteria, reducing oil production and cleansing the pores while also tackling inflammation, helping to treat acne and problem skin.
Ascorbic acid: this powerful antioxidant helps to counteract the damage caused by free radicals and prevent future effects. It also helps to even skin tone.
Phenol: a secret ingredient that acts as an anesthetic, numbing the skin so that the VI Peel serum application is painless.
Countless patients now prefer VI Peel to any others on the market. Here are just some of the reasons why you should consider a VI Peel for your next skin treatment.
Counteract the signs of aging
The aging process will naturally cause our skin to change, and we will notice it becoming thinner, drier and less elastic than before. Fine lines and wrinkles can start to form as early as our late teens or early twenties, and as we get older, these are generally more and more obvious and our production of collagen and elastin slows. VI Peel can be used to break down the top layers of skin, triggering the healing process and causing the body to produce more collagen and elastin so that the skin can repair. This can help to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles that could be causing you to look your age, or perhaps even older than you really are.
Even skin tone
Pigment in our skin can also change with age, and many people develop areas of discoloration or hyperpigmentation that makes them feel self-conscious. Fortunately, phenol is one of the main ingredients found in the VI Peel and this can target and reduce the appearance of areas of high pigmentation. VI Peel is also effective at helping to alter skin texture and improve the appearance of scarring, particularly acne scarring.
Acne can occur at any age, even well into middle age. Depending on the type and severity of the acne that you have, you can find that it makes your face inflamed, the texture of your skin lumpy or bump, or even becomes infected. VI Peel has been shown to be very effective in helping to tackle acne, which it does by reducing oil production, killing bacteria, unclogging pores and reducing inflammation so that your skin can breathe and heal.
Combine with other treatments
A VI Peel can also be combined with some other treatments, such as microneedling. Microneedling creates hundreds of tiny wounds in the skin, which is designed to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. However, this process also enables topical treatments to be absorbed more quickly and efficiently, elevating the success of the procedure.
There is a VI Peel to tackle any age, skin type and skin concern, making it easy for you to pick the perfect peel to suit your individual needs. To find out more, please schedule an appointment at Changes Plastic Surgery in San Diego by calling 858-264-3800.
