What to Expect During and After a VI Chemical Peel

If you’re considering a VI Chemical Peel, you may be wondering what to expect during and after the treatment. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the process of getting a VI Chemical Peel, from the initial consultation to the peeling process and aftercare.

Before the VI Chemical Peel 

Before getting a VI Chemical Peel, you’ll need to schedule a consultation with a qualified skincare professional. During this consultation, they will evaluate your skin and determine whether you are a good candidate for the treatment. They may also provide you with instructions for preparing your skin before the peel, such as avoiding certain skincare products and medications.

During the VI Chemical Peel

On the day of your VI Chemical Peel, you’ll arrive at the medical spa and be escorted to a treatment room. The skincare professional will begin by thoroughly cleansing your skin to remove any dirt or oil. They may also apply a numbing cream to your skin to help minimize any discomfort during the peel.

Once your skin is prepped and ready, the VI Chemical Peel solution will be applied to your face in several layers. You may feel a tingling or burning sensation during this process, but it should not be painful. The entire process typically takes 30 minutes.

After the VI Chemical Peel 

After the VI Chemical Peel, you may experience some redness, swelling, and peeling of the skin. This is a normal part of the healing process and typically lasts for several days to a week, depending on the strength of the peel.

During this time, it’s important to take good care of your skin. You should avoid exposing your skin to direct sunlight, wear sunscreen with a high SPF, and avoid picking or scratching at any peeling skin. You may also need to adjust your skincare routine to include gentle, hydrating products that will help soothe and nourish your skin.

Results of a VI Chemical Peel 

The results of a VI Chemical Peel can be dramatic and long-lasting. Depending on your skin concerns, you may notice improvements in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne, and other skin issues. However, it’s important to note that individual results may vary, and multiple treatments may be needed to achieve optimal results.

Getting a VI Chemical Peel can be a highly effective way to improve the appearance of your skin. By understanding what to expect during and after the treatment, you can feel confident and prepared for the process.
