The Benefits of Combining VI Chemical Peels with Microneedling

VI Chemical Peels and microneedling are two of the most popular skin rejuvenation treatments, and for good reason – they both work to stimulate collagen production and promote cell turnover. But did you know that combining these two treatments can take your results to the next level? In this blog post, we’ll discuss the benefits of combining VI Chemical Peels with microneedling and why it may be the perfect treatment for you.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that involves using a device with tiny needles to create microchannels in the skin. These microchannels stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that help to keep your skin looking youthful and radiant.

What is a VI Chemical Peel? 

A VI Chemical Peel is a type of chemical peel that uses a unique blend of powerful ingredients to exfoliate the skin and promote cell turnover. The peel contains a blend of trichloroacetic acid (TCA), salicylic acid, retinoic acid, phenol, and vitamin C, which work together to improve the texture and appearance of the skin.

Benefits of Combining VI Chemical Peels with Microneedling

  1. Boosts Collagen Production: By combining VI Chemical Peels with microneedling, you’re essentially supercharging your collagen production. The microchannels created by the microneedling device allow the VI Chemical Peel solution to penetrate deeper into the skin, where it can stimulate even more collagen production.
  2. Improves Skin Texture: The combination of VI Chemical Peels and microneedling works to improve skin texture by promoting cell turnover and exfoliating dead skin cells. This can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, leaving your skin looking smoother and more even.
  3. Enhances Product Penetration: The microchannels created by the microneedling device allow for better product penetration, which means that the VI Chemical Peel solution can be absorbed more effectively. This can result in more dramatic results and a shorter recovery time.
  4. Reduces Hyperpigmentation: Both VI Chemical Peels and microneedling can help to reduce hyperpigmentation, such as sun damage and age spots. When used together, these treatments can be even more effective at fading dark spots and evening out skin tone.

The VI Chemical Peel and Microneedling Process

During a combined VI Chemical Peel and microneedling treatment, your skin will first be cleansed and prepped with a numbing cream. The microneedling device will then be used to create microchannels in the skin, and the VI Chemical Peel solution will be applied to your skin. After the peel is removed, a calming mask will be applied to soothe and hydrate the skin.

Aftercare 

After a combined VI Chemical Peel and microneedling treatment, your skin may be red, swollen, and peeling for several days to a week. It’s important to avoid direct sunlight and wear a high SPF sunscreen to protect your skin. You may also need to adjust your skincare routine to include gentle, hydrating products that will help soothe and nourish your skin.
