Chemical Peels

Improve Your Skin’s Texture & Appearance with VI Peels in Helena, MT

Vitality Institute (VI) Peel

A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure that involves the application of a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate and improve its texture and appearance. At Advanced Practice Dermatology, we offer Vitality Institute (VI) Peels.

VI peels help improve overall skin radiance and can be particularly beneficial for various skin concerns, including acne, acne scarring, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, melasma, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.

Peels are medium-depth and designed to be painless with minimal downtime. Results are typically seen within 7 days.

Benefits of VI Peels

Exfoliation and Skin Renewal: The active ingredients in Vitality Institute (VI) Peels work to exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin, promoting cell turnover and revealing fresher, healthier skin underneath. This process helps to improve skin texture, smoothness, and clarity.

Minimal Downtime: While the intensity and downtime associated with VI Peels may vary depending on the specific peel, they are generally designed to offer visible results with minimal downtime. Some peels may cause mild redness, flaking, or peeling, but these effects are temporary and typically resolve within a few days to a week.

Long-Term Skin Improvement: The effects of VI Peels are immediate and can lead to long-term improvements in the skin’s appearance. Regular treatments can help to maintain a healthy complexion, improve skin tone and texture, and promote a more youthful and radiant look.

What should I expect post-treatment?

Following a VI Peel treatment, we recommend using gentle cleansers, avoiding direct sunlight, and wearing sunscreen. Following a chemical peel, your skin will go through a process of exfoliation and renewal. This may involve peeling, flaking, or temporary redness. This is normal. The extent of downtime and recovery will depend on the depth of the peel performed. Gradually, you will notice improvements in skin texture, tone, and overall appearance as new, healthier skin emerges.

It is important to note that VI Peels should be administered by a qualified professional who can assess your skin type and condition, determine the appropriate peel formulation and strength, and provide post-treatment care instructions.

What is the VI Peel process?

1. Prepping & Application: On the day of the peel, your skin will first be cleansed, then the chemical solution will be carefully applied to the treatment area.

2. Sensation: As the chemical solution is applied, you may experience a tingling, stinging, or mild burning sensation, which is normal.

3. Duration: The duration of the application can vary depending on the type of peel and the individual’s tolerance. It typically ranges from a few minutes to 20 minutes.

4. Neutralization or Removal: After the desired amount of time, the chemical solution may be neutralized or removed using water, saline solution, or a neutralizing agent, depending on the type of peel. This step stops the peeling process and prevents further chemical activity.
