The word “pristine” may be more often used to describe beautiful, unspoiled landscapes, but to us, it’s also a great way to describe the glowing skin revealed with chemical peels. In recent years, more and more people are experiencing their own pristine skin from peels thanks to continued advancements in this popular cosmetic technique. In West Bloomfield, the chemical peel of choice is the VI Peel. Read on to learn more and be on your way to your own pristine skin from peels.
How do chemical peels work?
With a VI Peel, a chemical solution containing a blend of ingredients including salicylic acid, TCA, and phenol is applied to the skin. The solution works to safely “peel” away the top layer of your skin, exfoliating the damaged tissue and leaving fresher, younger-looking skin behind. Peels are classified based on their depth of penetration, from superficial to deep. The VI Peel is a medium-depth skin-resurfacing chemical peel that effectively stimulates collagen and increases skin cell turnover to bring forth your pristine skin from peels.
What skin conditions can a VI Peel improve?
VI Peels, in particular, have proven effective at improving a myriad of skin concerns in West Bloomfield. These include:
- Acne & acne scarring
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Keratosis pilaris
Whichever of these skin concerns is zapping your confidence, chemical peels may be a great option to consider as an effective solution.
Am I a candidate for getting pristine skin from peels?
The VI Peel may be a great skin-boosting option for healthy adults who desire a younger, more refreshed appearance without the downtime associated with more invasive techniques. In many cases, fair-skinned people tend to be better candidates for chemical peels. While people who have darker skin may also have good results depending on the type of skin concern being treated, they might be more prone to uneven skin tone following treatment. For those wanting to treat advanced signs of aging, such as sagging or deep wrinkles, a chemical peel may not be the best option. We’ll go over your individual concerns during your consultation to determine if pristine skin from peels is your best bet.
What should I expect during treatment with a VI Peel?
Your provider will thoroughly cleanse your skin to remove any dirt or oil just prior to your peel. Then, the VI Peel solution will be applied in two layers. The first layer might cause some numbness or tingling in the skin, and the second layer will then cause your outer layer of skin to start turning white. You will wash the peel solution off in about four to six hours following its initial application, and your skin will start to peel in about two to three days. This peeling generally stops at day seven Any discomfort with a chemical peel is very minimal, but your skin may appear red or flushed for a few days afterward. This typically dissipates quickly, however.
When will I experience my pristine skin from peels after my treatment?
Many people say they notice almost immediate improvement in their complexion after the peel solution is washed off, but optimum results usually take a few days to shine through. After your outer layer of skin is done peeling, your face will likely appear more refreshed, radiant, and younger looking. This pristine skin from peels often lasts up to three or four months, at which time you may have the option to elect another peel treatment if you desire. At Pristine Rejuvenation, we will assess your individual skin and help you to determine the best course of action for you.
