Let me start out by saying, the VI Peel is the...
My peel was applied on a Friday at Motykie Med Spa in Beverly Hills. Application time to my face and decollate would be a mere thirty minutes of layering a strong, serum-like combination of TCA (A peeling agent), Tretinoic Acid (A powerful compound to prevent collagen loss and boost cell turn over), Salicylic Acid (Fighting breakouts and promoting clarity of the skin), Vitamin C (A natural brightener and exfoliator) and a Mineral Blend. It was additionally exciting to learn that Vi Peel is proudly, the only peel safe enough to be applied on the delicate eyelids and under eye areas further contributing to a complete look of flawless skin.
My skin instantly looked radiant and glowing because of the surface exfoliation experienced from the absorption of the treatment. My post peel care package included three Vi Peel Post Peel Towelettes, Vi Derm Post Peel Protectant and SPF 50+ Sun Protection and I was instructed to stay out of the sun. Application of only two towelettes were necessary to instigate the peeling process. My aesthetician informed me that I could use the third one, at my discretion, if I desired another day of peeling. I was also strictly instructed not to assist by pulling the shedding skin off when peeling began. It needed to fall off naturally or I’d run the risk of creating scars on the new skin waiting to be revealed.
After following all of the post treatment instructions, the skin on my face and decollate began peeling like clockwork the morning of day 3 and continued peeling for 6 more days. My skin was itchy and dry during most of the process, but this was to be expected. The Vi Derm Post Peel Protectant did wonders to minimize my discomfort. I’m a purist and so, even though you are allowed to wear makeup the days before peeling begins, I skipped it all together. I had to work half the time I was peeling (I recommend taking some vacation time if at all possible to peel in private), which was alarming for my coworkers but the compliments I received afterwards on my radiant, smooth skin made it all completely worth it.
I looked like a shedding snake for a week but had skin like a newborn when all was said and done. My skin has NEVER looked and felt better. The texture is completely different now. I find that my skincare regiment has become even more effect because my products no longer have to make their way through an extra layer of damaged skin. I highly recommend the VI Peel to anyone who is seeking a painless, result oriented treatment with minimal downtime. If you are still on the fence just take a look at my before and after pictures and let the results speak for themselves!
