The VI Peel can dramatically improve the quality of your facial skin. At Alinea Medical Spa in NYC , we have seen the impressive results this chemical peel can achieve – and it is appropriate for every skin type. The VI Peel contains minerals, salicylic acid, vitamin C, retinoic acid, and TCA (trichloroacetic acid). The VI Peel is an appropriate treatment for a wide range of skin conditions.
Is there any recovery after a VI Peel?
Following your VI peel in New York , your skin may appear bronzed. This is a sign that pigmented skin cells are rising to the surface. You must keep your skin protected and hydrated during healing, and our skincare expert will recommend the best moisturizer for your skin type. Peeling starts at about day 3, and your skin may feel itchy. The peeling continues for about a week.
Your newly revealed, fresh skin will be sensitive, may appear reddened (like a mild sunburn), and you must avoid exposing it to the sun for a time, and always wear broad-spectrum sunscreen of 30 or higher SPF. For optimal results, you may need to undergo a series of VI Peel treatments, which can be performed every two to four weeks, and regular maintenance treatments to retain your refreshed, glowing skin.
