Your skin bears the brunt of many assailants over your lifetime. UV rays from the sun, environmental toxins, and even the skin’s own regenerative processes can leave evidence of the many years it has protected you.
Your aging skin doesn’t produce the generous amounts of elastin and collagen it did in your younger years, so your skin cells don’t regenerate as quickly. Acne and excess skin oil mix with dead skin cells to form a glue-like substance that clogs pores. This, combined with the wrinkles, scars, and lines that come with aging, make your skin appear dull and lifeless.
Dr. Ramesh Kumar and the team at LifeWell MD, with offices in Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, and Port St. Lucie, Florida, are pleased to offer numerous treatments for rejuvenating your skin for a healthier, younger appearance. One of our newest offerings is the VI Peel®.
What is a VI Peel?
The VI Peel from Vitality Institute is a chemical peel with multiple formulations to address varying skin types and skin problems. Five different levels of VI Peel can easily and painlessly resolve many skin problems, including:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Loss of elasticity
Oily and congested skin
We first examine your skin to determine the issues present, and then choose the appropriate VI Peel to help you meet your aesthetic goals.
VI Peel treatment levels
We offer the following VI Peels to improve your skin:
The Original VI Peel
This peel treats the issues most commonly found on mild to moderate aging skin, including a rough texture, loss of firmness and tone, wrinkles, and fine lines.
VI Peel with Precision
This peel is specially formulated for skin with large pores and deeper wrinkles.
VI Peel with Precision Plus
This peel removes or reduces sun spots and other types of hyperpigmentation. It also smooths out skin texture, reduces pores, and brightens tone.
VI Peel Purify
This peel keeps pores clear and healthy by accelerating skin-cell turnover.
VI Peel Purify with Precision Plus
This peel is designed to improve skin texture and eliminate acne scarring by stimulating the production of elastin and collagen. It also helps to reduce redness and hyperpigmentation for a more even skin tone.
What is involved in a VI Peel treatment?
VI Peel treatments are pain-free, which may be a surprise if you have undergone previous chemical peels. The unique formula was developed by a physician who wanted to help his own daughter with her acne problem but without painful treatments.
The VI Peel requires no pretreatment. Your skin is gently cleansed, then a member of our aesthetics team applies the correct VI Peel formula as you relax in one of our comfortable treatment chairs. In less than one hour, you can receive treatment on your face, neck, and decollétage. The VI Peel is safe for all skin types.
Your VI Peel must remain in place for about four hours, so you will return home to complete the treatment process, along with complete instructions and an aftercare kit. This kit contains:
Post-peel removal towelettes
Post-peel moisturizing protectant
VI Derm SPF 50+ sunscreen
At the three-day post-treatment mark, your skin will begin to peel. This process lasts between 4-7 days, so keep your skin moisturized with the VI Peel products and shield it from sun exposure during this time. Limit your activity, including exercise, for 3-4 days.
When will I see results from a VI Peel treatment?
Within a week, you will notice that your skin is firmer, smoother, brighter, and has an even tone, as well as looking and feeling healthy. The production of collagen and elastin is stimulated through the VI Peel to continue the healing and rebuilding process.
Dr. Kumar may recommend a VI Peel every 4-6 weeks to help you reach your goals for skin health and appearance. You may have follow-up treatments every few months to maintain a healthy and radiant look for many years to come.
