What Is a VI Peel?
A Vitality Institute (VI) peel is a medium-depth chemical peel available as an in-office treatment in Kansas City. The Vitality Institute offers six unique trademarked processes to help remove the visible signs of aging, correct pigment imbalances, and improve skin texture.
Although the exact ingredient components will vary on customization, Vitality Institute products contain a proprietary blend of trichloroacetic acid (TCA), phenol, salicylic acid, vitamin C, and tretinoin.
VI Peels help remove sun damage, alleviate acne scarring, and are safe for all skin types and tones. The treatment removes the outer layer of damaged skin, revealing a smoother texture and a more balanced skin tone. Feel complete confidence with your anti-aging and rejuvenating results.
Your appointment typically takes 30 minutes. At first, the practitioner cleans the skin, so the chemical solution can penetrate deeply. Several layers of chemical peel solution are applied. Once the solution has penetrated the skin, the practitioner applies sunscreen, and you return home with the solution on your face.
How Does a VI Peel Benefit My Skin?
Your experienced practitioner will choose from one of five VI Peels tailored to your skin concerns. VI Peels can help reduce the appearance of acne and acne scars. Our Kansas City VI Peels help brighten dark areas and plump acne scars by soothing inflammation and increasing collagen production.
VI Peels can also help balance hyperpigmentation and sunspots to refresh your skin. As a medium-depth chemical peel, the procedure will also help resurface the skin and lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our highly-trained practitioners will customize your application to deliver specialized treatments to address your unique concerns.
VI Peels can be used anywhere on the body, including your hands, neck, arms, or chest. They are commonly used to address:
For people who suffer from keratosis pilaris, a VI Peel could help. The condition is sometimes called “chicken skin” and often appears on the upper arms and produces small, raised bumps. A VI treatment could smooth over your skin, erasing all signs of these bumps.
Face and Body Acne
VI Peels can also target stubborn acne. The treatment will thoroughly clean and treat acne by lowering oil production and reducing clogged pores. Additionally, the peel will kill surface bacteria and reduce inflammation so your skin is refreshed and clear.
What Can I Expect During Recovery?
After the procedure, you will rinse the solution off after four hours. Within three days, your skin begins to peel, and the outer layers of the skin begin to slough off. We recommend you use vitamin C and tretinoin towelettes at home to boost exfoliation.
Immediately after your VI treatment in Kansas City, your skin may look darker. Do not pick or peel your skin, as it can increase the risk of bleeding and scarring. Your new skin will be sensitive and require extra care to avoid sunburn.
As your skin heals, you can use a cool saline compress to soothe the skin and moisturize three to five times daily to speed healing. Wait to apply makeup until your skin has fully healed. You may find that you need to peel more than expected. This often means your skincare regimen already provides adequate exfoliation. In the coming days and weeks, the skin will tighten, smooth, refresh, and renew your appearance.
