Enjoy Softer, Younger-Looking Skin
Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery of Acadiana at Lafayette General is proud to offer the popular VI Peel chemical peel, a blend of synergistic peeling agents that are suitable for all skin types. The VI Peel can provide dramatic skin improvements without the discomfort, prep or downtime of other chemical peels.
What are the benefits of VI Peel™?
- Soften fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce the appearance of enlarged pores
- Improve your skin tone, texture and clarity
- Reduce or erase unwanted pigmentation problems like freckles or melasma
- Help clear away acne and reduce scarring from previous breakouts
Who Should Consider the VI Peel?
Unlike other chemical peels, the VI peel is safe for all skin types, even patients with darker skin tones. Finally, African-American and darker skin types such as Asian and Latin patients can experience anti-aging and restorative skin repair previously unavailable. If your skin is showing one or more signs of aging, sun damage or acne, you should consider the VI peel at Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery of Acadiana at Lafayette General.
How Does the VI Peel Work?
The VI peel works with a special blend of safe but powerful acids (including retinoic acid) to thoroughly exfoliate your outer skin layers. Your treatment can be completed in about 20 minutes, and if necessary, it can be repeated as often as every month to achieve satisfying results.
During the first few seconds of your treatment, you may feel a minor stinging sensation as the peel is applied. After the first pass, numbing of the skin will occur and you will adjust to the sensation.
What to Expect After Treatment
You should expect light flaking of the skin during the first week after treatment, which is usually finished after about 3 – 4 days. The skin regeneration that occurs after this chemical peel will result in a fresh appearance of your skin. The visible results include a smoother and more even complexion and an improvement in pigment changes.
In most cases, the best results are achieved if the peel is part of a series of four treatments. Ask our aesthetician at Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery of Acadiana at Lafayette General about a series of VI peel treatments and a skin care program to accompany your treatment regimen.
Can I combine the VI Peel™ with other procedures?
Yes. Many patients will have a VI Peel done just before Botox® or other injectables, the VI Peel will numb the skin and allows for less painful injections.
