A VI Peel is a specialized medium-depth peel designed to help improve acne, acne scars, and signs of aging. As a medium-depth peel, it is stronger than most of the peels performed at Northwest Face & Body. However, this also makes it one of the most effective ones. Due to this, patients are often concerned about how much they will peel with a VI Peel and ask questions such as, “Does everyone peel with a VI Peel?”
No, but most people will experience some degree of skin peeling within three to five days of their treatment. The severity of the peeling will vary from patient to patient. Thus, some patients may only see a small amount of peeling while others may see much more. On rare occasions, a patient may experience no peeling after a VI Peel.
The VI Peel is formulated to peel less than other medium-depth peels. Even if you do see significant peeling, it should clear up within a week or so. It also does not require downtime or recovery beyond a few small modifications to your routine.
