VI Peel Q & A

What is the VI Peel?

Chemical peels are leaders among aesthetic skin care treatments, and the VI Peel is a patient favorite. At Defy Nature, the team performs VI Peels to rejuvenate your skin by removing the upper layer of damage and impurities. 

Unlike a typical chemical peel, the VI Peel is very comfortable and doesn’t require any downtime as your skin recovers. Your provider starts your VI Peel treatment by preconditioning your skin. Then, they apply the chemical solution to your skin. The solution contains acids like alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and beta hydroxy acid (BHA) to loosen the dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. VI Peels also contain a number of vitamins and minerals that infuse into your skin to nourish it. 

As the AHA and BHA exfoliate your skin, the top layer begins to peel away to reveal a fresh, bright layer below. You’ll see the full effect after about one week, and your provider might recommend two or three treatments for the best results. 

What are the results of a VI Peel?

Chemical peels like the VI Peel alleviate many surface-level damages and blemishes. If you have any of the following skin issues, talk to your provider at Defy Nature about getting a chemical peel:

  • Dry patches
  • Fine lines on the lower half of your face
  • Acne
  • Acne scars
  • Discoloration
  • Sun spots

Your skin feels hydrated and smooth after a VI Peel. A peel can also help illuminate your skin without making it too oily or dry. 

How long do the results of a VI Peel last?

The amount of time you can enjoy your VI Peel results varies. Factors like your skin type and your lifestyle habits affect the longevity of the results, and your provider can give you a more accurate idea of what to expect. However, many patients enjoy VI Peels because they can see the effect for months or years. 

Taking these steps can help sooth your skin after a peel and encourage longer lasting results:

  • Using cool water to clean your skin
  • Applying sunscreen before going outside
  • Drinking lots of water
  • Avoiding scrubbing your skin rigorously
  • Avoiding steam rooms or saunas

The team at Defy Nature can recommend professional products for you to keep your skin looking great after a treatment.
