Vi Peel Put to the Test on ‘Good Morning Texas’

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on January 24, 2009

The Vi Peel is one of the latest chemical peels available for aging and sun-damaged skin, a treatment that promises to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of scars and restore a fresh, rejuvenated appearance.  Hollywood has deemed it the ultimate skin breakthrough for turning back the clock, and the procedure is now available at dozens of medical spas and skin rejuvenation centers across the country. The Vi peel may be a valuable, low-cost alternative to pricey facelift treatments and other anti-aging procedures.

The Vi Peel is different from standard chemical peels because it contains Retin-A and concentrated viamins and minerals that help to detoxify the skin at a deeper level without causing pain or tissue damage.

The treatment helps to shrink enlarged pores and stimulates collagen production, resulting in firmer, tighter and rejuvenated skin.  The skin may be slightly red and sensitive immediately after treatment, but any discomfort will fade within a few hours; over a period of a few days, the skin will begin to shed (peel) but the peeling cycle is complete by the end of the fourth day.

Key benefits of the Vi Peel include reducing wrinkles, removing hyperpigmentation, and reducing the appearance of age spots. Patients who undergo the Vi treatment can speed up the process by applying ‘Peel Pads’ to the skin over the course of 2-3 days after the peel is applied; these pads contain essential skin moisturizing and healing ingredients that support the cell turnover process.

The Vi peel was recently performed live on NBC’s Good Morning Texas for the ‘Beauty on a Budget’ segment. Dr. Bill Johnson also discussed the benefits of other low-cost skin rejuvenation treatments that can help get rid of age spots, sun spots, melasma and acne scars.

  2. One word of caution that I always apply to new technology is “don’t be the first one on the block doing something or the last one still doing it.” There is a ton of peels out there that have their merits good and bad. Vitamins and nutrients are good things for the skin but just putting them on the skin may not be that critical, as compared with a healthy lifestyle, diet, exercise and sun avoidance. A peel should be intended to remove dead layers of skin and perhaps tighten the underlying collagen. I have found the plasma skin resurfacing to be ideal for skin texture but not for wrinkles.

    Why not? Almost nothing works perfectly for wrinkles when we talk about peeling because using the analogy of a shirt that you wear, the skin is something you wear every day. No matter how much you iron the shirt (peeling), you still get wrinkles because you are wearing it. Only Botox can stop the movement long enough for the collagen to heal. For wrinkles, it is the most important thing one can do, especially during the first 1 to 2 years of treatment when the skin can profoundly heal with consistent usage. Like exercise maintenance, once you get to a healthy skin, you can oftentimes slow down on Botox regularity. Just my thoughts and counterpoint.

  3. We have been using the ViPeel for almost 3 years in our office and our clients love the results. It has been safe and effective for all skin types including African American skin. I love how my skin looks the week after the peeling has finished.

    It can be done monthly for problematic skin to achieve desired results and 2-4 times a year for maintenance of a brighter, healthier complexion.

    As with all chemical peels risks are still there, and each client needs to have a thorough evaluation and discussion of the potential risks and have their expectations managed.

    I agree with Dr. Lam that Botox is the treatment for dynamic wrinkles – those that occur from muscle movement. However, peels are effective treatments for those fine lines and wrinkles that occur over time not associated with movement.

  4. We have been using the Vi Peel as the flagship chemical peel in our medical spa for about 3 years also. I am quite pleased with the safety, toleratiblity, and effectiveness that it affords. This chemical peel is very good for improving skin texture and fine wrinkles, mild pigment irregularity, and hyperpigmentation.
