We know that when it comes to in-office skincare treatments, patients need options. Not everyone has the same skin type, so for that reason, there can’t be a one-size-fits-all approach in any area of skincare. Chemical peels are effective treatments, but not all patients can handle the same strength peel, which is why we offer several different kinds of chemical peels, including the popular and effective VI Peels.
What Are VI Peels?
Vitality Institute customized five different chemical peels formulated with a different blend of acids and high-quality ingredients designed to treat and improve the appearance of acne scarring, aging skin, melasma, hyperpigmentation, and other skin concerns in a quick and effective treatment. VI peels are popular chemical peels that can only be administered by skincare professionals. Each of these peels is a medium-depth peel that’s painless and safe for all skin types.
Physical Versus Chemical Exfoliation
There are two types of exfoliation: physical and chemical. Physical exfoliation relates to any device or product that manually exfoliates dead skin from the skin’s surface. Some of the more common forms of physical information include microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, and topical scrubs that contain an abrasive ingredient designed to remove dead skin cells from the surface. During a physical exfoliating treatment, you can see and feel the debris come off the skin’s surface.
Chemical exfoliation, however, uses a combination of acids and other anti-aging ingredients to dissolve the top layer of skin as well as penetrate the deeper layers of the skin to promote collagen production. The VI Peels qualify as a form of chemical exfoliation because they contain various customized ingredients and acid blends that will dissolve the dead skin from your skin’s surface and reveal a more youthful layer below.
The Benefits of Chemical Exfoliation
Chemical exfoliation offers many different benefits, and it’s something that everyone should add to their skincare routine. When you schedule one of our in-office chemical exfoliating treatments, it will improve your skin.
The right customized blend of acids and anti-aging ingredients can help target some of your most problematic skin conditions and improve your complexion over time. Chemical peels can keep your skin healthy, youthful and help you maintain a radiant glow between treatments.
Why You Should Schedule an In-Office Chemical Peel
You can buy physical exfoliating devices and products to use from the comfort of your home, but finding an effective and safe chemical peel isn’t that easy. Applying a mix of chemicals to your skin isn’t the safest option because it takes precision, accuracy, experience, and skill. For that reason, you should leave chemical exfoliating treatments like chemical peels to skincare experts like our estheticians here at Spa West.
Our estheticians know how to apply chemical peels, how long to leave them on your skin, which formulation to choose for your skin type, and how often to schedule your treatments. When you trust these chemical peels to an expert who knows how to improve your skin, you won’t have to worry about adverse reactions but instead can expect beautiful skin post-treatment.
The Different VI Peels
Vitality Institute has customized five different VI peels. These peels are designed to target different skin types and conditions. One of our skincare experts can evaluate your skin during an in-person consultation to learn more about your ultimate skincare goals and determine which of these peels will best meet your needs.
