VI Peel™ in Boston, MA
Are you looking for a solution to treat wrinkles, scars, blemishes, sun spots, sun damage and uneven skin tone? If so, all your skin’s imperfections can each be treated with a VI Peel™. Neem Medical Spa proudly offers the VI Peel™, a chemical peel that is specifically designed for medical purposes, to men and women residing in Winchester, Somerville, and the Greater Boston area. The unique blend of ingredients used in the VI Peel™ is perfect for every skin type.
What is the VI Peel™?
The VI Peel™ is the newest peel on the market and is a popular option because of its suitability for all skin types, decreased pain and quicker results than previous treatments. This procedure treats the skin on a cellular level, and instead of merely removing visibly damaged skin, the VI Peel™ uses vitamins and acids to build collagen. The VI Peel™ skin treatment is used to improve the appearance of skin imperfections on the face, hands, chest and other areas.
The VI Peel™ is a medical-grade chemical peel that is effective in the treatment of common skin issues, such as acne, acne scarring, uneven tone, uneven skin texture, sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, large pores and age spots. The VI Peel™ promotes youthful, healthier looking skin and improves collagen production. The VI Peel™, like other chemical peels, may assist in the removal of precancerous cells.
What are the Benefits of a VI Peel™?
Every skin treatment has unique benefits, as does the VI Peel™. If you’ve experienced acne flare-ups in the past, the treatment makes acne scarring less visible, and some patients even report that they no longer experience acne breakouts. The primary benefit is improved skin texture and tone. If you are experiencing dry or dull skin, you will likely notice a healthy glow to your skin after the VI Peel™ treatment.
If you are experiencing hyperpigmentation, such as melasma, your skin may have a more even tone after the treatment. Individuals with age spots and freckles are pleasantly surprised when they have fewer spots, and some report that all their age spots have been removed.
Facial skin tends to sag with age due to reduced levels of the protein collagen that provides structural support to the skin. With the VI Peel™, you may experience firmer and smoother facial skin. Additional benefits may be triggered by an increase in your skin’s production of collagen.
The VI Peel™ can be combined with other treatments and additional benefits can be expected. That’s correct, the VI Peel™ will not restrict your choice of facial care procedures, and it is a great idea to consider combined treatments to produce the results you desire.
Are You a Good Candidate for VI Peel™?
The VI Peel™ treatment is beneficial for every skin type, and most men and women are good candidates. If you’re seeking improved skin with fewer scars, or if you would like your skin to appear younger, you are most likely eligible for the VI Peel™. Because it was initially created to treat acne and acne scars, it is approved for individuals as young as 12 years old. The VI Peel™ is also beneficial for ethnic groups who would not benefit from other chemical treatments.
Good candidates for the VI Peel™ are in general good health and are willing to comply with all postsurgical instructions. Pregnant women, individuals on prescription or over-the-counter medications, those who have recently had a medical procedure and anyone who has been diagnosed with a skin condition should speak with our aesthetician, who will determine if they are a good candidate for the VI Peel™ treatment.
What Happens During a VI Peel™?
The VI Peel™ is performed right in our office and is extremely convenient. No pre-treatments are required. Your skin will be cleaned and prepared, and then the VI Peel™ treatment will be applied. A warm sensation may be experienced during the process, but it should quickly subside. Applying the VI Peel™ takes approximately 30 minutes, but it must remain on your skin for five hours.
What is the VI Peel™ Recovery Like?
There is no post-treatment downtime needed, and you may return to your daily routine immediately following the procedure. Exfoliating products and other products containing retinol and glycolic acid should not be applied for one to two weeks. Prolonged or direct sunlight should also be avoided. Please be respectful of the peeling process and acknowledge that the VI Peel™ will peel away naturally on its own. Do not touch the treated area or pull on the peeling skin.
After the peeling process is complete, you will experience noticeable improvements in your skin’s appearance and texture. Over the next four to six weeks, you will continue to see and feel improvements in your skin. The treated area will appear healthier and brighter. Most patients report younger and firmer skin with fewer acne problems.
