Specifically formulated for pigmented skin:

  • Reduces the appearance of age spots
  • Brightens even the most stubborn areas of discoloration
  • Smooths away rough skin texture

Your Peel For Acne Scars and Skin Texture

After your skin is acne free, you can be left with scarred skin and sometimes increased pigmentation. Acne scars will often fade over time but sometimes they need a little help. VI Peel will help eliminate acne scars and skin damage leaving your skin smooth and clear.

  • Helps smooth skin texture and repair acne scars
  • Brightens dark areas left after an acne scar

The forehead will be the last areas to peel.

Stage 3. Days 4-5

Days 4 and 5 are the most aggressive days of peeling.

By day 6 most exfoliation has subsided.

Stage 5. Day 7

IMPORTANT INFORMATION!

  • Refrain from activities for 72-96 hours that can induce excessive perspiration which can lead to pigmentation or blistering.
  • The post peel towelettes are a crucial part of the peeling process and must be applied on the 1st and 2nd days following the instructions you have.
  • A small percentage of patients say that after using the post peel towelettes (especially the first night) they experience some itching. If itching is extreme, wash the face to remove the solutions or the Post Peel Protectant may be applied after 10 minutes.
  • Continue using the twelettes, apply it the next evening. Usually by day two, the towelette is readily
  • The Post Peel Protectant may sting upon application, but stinging quickly subsides. If significant discomfort is experienced when applying it, you may substitute with Cortizone cream (you can get it from any pharmacy over the counter) mixed with another gentle moisturizer which you have at home that does not irritate the skin. An antihistamine may be taken to reduce extreme itchiness.
  • Avoid sun exposure during the peeling phase. The use of sunscreen is essential. You may go out in the sun when the exfoliating subsides. Remember that your skin will be more sensitive to UV rays. Apply SPF 30 or higher every 2 hours when outdoors.
  • During the week following the peel, you must use a gentle cleanser. You may use your cleanser as long as it is not harsh or abrasive.
  • Do not cleanse with a Clarisonic Brush, do not use scrubs until the peeling process is complete (usually in 6-7days).
  • NEVER FORCE OR PEEL THE SKIN OFFIN SHEETS. This is very important because such actions may cause irritation, scarring or pigmentation.

The skin will slough when washed morning and night. If you would like to trim excessive skin from the face, a small pair of scissors is acceptable.
