A VI peel is one of many different chemical peels that can be used to improve the appearance of the skin. A VI peel specifically is classified as a medium-depth chemical peel as it penetrates through the top layer of the skin, known as the epidermis, and reaches into the layer underneath, known as the dermis. The product used for a VI peel has been trademarked by Vitality Institute Medical Products, making it a unique procedure. The purpose of a medium-depth chemical peel, such as a VI peel or other forms of chemical peels, is to exfoliate the skin while at the same time stimulating the growth and production of new proteins.
Through this process, the appearance of the skin will show an improvement against the signs of aging, correcting issues with pigmentation, and smoothing out the skin’s texture. A VI peel is gentle and safe for use on various parts of the body including the hands, back, eyelids, chest, and most commonly, the face. It is also reported to be safe for use by people with any skin type and skin tone. It is made up of a blend of ingredients that include trichloroacetic acid (TCA), phenol, salicylic acid, vitamin C, and tretinoin.
A VI peel can be used on many different areas of the body to improve the appearance of the skin, by minimizing the appearance of signs of aging, smoothing out the skin’s texture, and correcting pigmentation issues. It is most commonly used on the face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by stimulating the natural healing process of the body and increasing the production of collagen and elastin to restore structure and elasticity to the skin. These two proteins naturally break down as a part of the aging process, with their loss contributing to the formation of wrinkles as we age. VI peels can also be used to minimize the effects of sun damage or melasma, a skin condition that causes the skin to darken. Chemical peels such as VI peels have the potential to lighten the skin where it has become darker than the rest of the skin as a result of these issues.
They can also smooth out the surface of the skin, treating a condition called keratosis pilaris, also known as chicken skin due to the bumpy appearance of the skin resembling that of a chicken that has been plucked. VI peels contain salicylic acid, which is a common ingredient used in acne treatments and can provide an improvement to skin that is plagued by acne by reducing the production of oil, reducing inflammation, reducing clogged pores, and killing bacteria that can cause acne. A certified chemical peel practitioner can provide recommendations on the best type of chemical peel for you, based on your skin and the results you are looking to achieve.
Like any cosmetic procedure, prices will vary depending on a variety of factors. With a chemical peel, the costs will vary based on the depth of the treatment you are receiving, whether it is a light, medium or deep chemical peel as the techniques and solutions used will vary. The costs will also vary based on the individual practitioner performing the chemical peel, based on their training and experience, as well as the setting in which the chemical peel is being performed. When choosing a practitioner for a chemical peel, you will want to make sure you have a properly trained practitioner who has experience with the particular type of peel you are having done.
A VI peel can cost anywhere from $150 to $450 due to all of these factors, as well as the geographical location and corresponding cost of living of where you live or are having your chemical peel done. Your practitioner can provide you with a cost estimate during your initial consultation. As chemical peels are a cosmetic procedure, they are not covered by insurance and individuals will need to pay for them out of pocket. The team at Island Medical & Beauty Clinic will use a consultation appointment to examine your skin and learn about what it is you are looking to get out of a chemical peel. From there they will make a recommendation on the best treatment to get you the best results and can provide you with a cost estimate for the procedure.
