If you’re interested in coming in for a VI Peel treatment, it’s important to know what happens after a VI Peel session. The better prepared you are for the aftercare period, the easier it will be to avoid unwanted complications and enjoy a comfortable recovery process!

What Should I Avoid After a VI Peel?

After the VI Peel treatment session is complete, you will be able to return home. You will need to leave the peel on your skin for four to six hours in order to let it continue to soak into the skin layers.

During these four to six hours, you will need to avoid taking part in any stressful or strenuous activities, including exercise and sports. Do not apply any other creams or topical products to the treated area. You will be given post care products to use for the first three to seven days.

You will be able to continue with your everyday chores and tasks after your VI Peel without needing any sort of downtime. However, it will be vital to avoid any activities that could cause heavy sweating for four days following the chemical peel procedure.

Your fresh skin layers may be slightly tender and thus more prone to sun damage for a few days. Avoid spending too much time in the sun while the skin is still new. You will also need to always use proper sun protection, including a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30. A good-quality sunscreen can be recommended during your consultation.

Cosmetic usage should be avoided during the post-procedure skin-peeling process. Moisturizer application, however, may be acceptable. Make sure to ask your skincare professional at Refresh Palm Beach Medical Aesthetics about this. They will be able to recommend proper moisturizer options.

What Will the Peeling Be Like After a VI Peel?

Typically, the upper skin layers of the treated skin will begin to slough away in about three days, revealing the new, fresh skin layers. The mouth is typically the area where the peeling begins.

Do not pick at your skin while it peels. Instead, let it peel away naturally. Picking at peeling skin can cause increased irritation and redness. After up to around seven days, all peeling will be complete.

Once the peeling is complete and the skin has fully healed, you will notice results in the form of smooth, revitalized skin. There will be a reduction in the appearance of acne scars, rosacea, age lines, sun damage, acne, oversized pores, and hyperpigmentation.

Will I Need More VI Peel Treatments?

Since VI Peels can be used to treat many conditions and skin types, your medical professional at Refresh Palm Beach Medical Aesthetics will be able to evaluate and determine the correct number of treatments needed to achieve your specific desires.
