As our skin ages, we begin to see age spots, blemishes, and uneven tone. To correct these imperfections, Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified plastic surgeon in Aventura, offers the VI Peel™ for patients in the Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and South Florida area. The VI Peel™ is a specialized chemical peel that diminishes visible signs of aging and sun damage, delivering long-lasting results.
What is the VI Peel™?
The VI Peel™ is a medical grade chemical peel that reduces wrinkles, lines, blemishes, scars, sun damage, spots, uneven skin tone, and other skin imperfections via a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types. The VI Peel™ repairs the skin by removing the dead outer layers and exposing the fresh, healthy skin underneath to reveal a dramatic improvement and healthier, more youthful appearance.
Benefits of VI Peel™
The VI Peel™ improves the skin’s tone, texture, and luminosity. It reduces and may completely eliminate age spots, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation, including melasma. It softens and may actually remove fine lines and wrinkles. It clears up acne flare-ups and dramatically reduces – and may even eliminate – scars caused by acne and other signs of skin damage. The VI Peel™ also stimulates the production of collagen, a substance that naturally repairs the skin, providing firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin. The VI Peel™ may be used in combination with other treatments.
Who Is a Good Candidate for a VI Peel™?
Anyone who wishes to improve skin tone and luminosity, reduce blemishes, remove scars, freckles, spots and sun damage, or anyone seeking a more youthful appearance may be an excellent candidate for a VI Peel™. The VI Peel™ has been tested and approved for individuals of all of skin tones, including some ethnic groups that have traditionally not always responded positively to chemical peel treatments. The VI Peel™ was originally developed as a treatment for acne and acne scarring and has been tested and approved for patients as young as 12 years old. Dr. Rubinstein believes the best candidates for any chemical peel are people who enjoy overall good health and are willing to properly follow post-treatment instructions. Additionally, if you are pregnant, taking medications, recently had another procedure, or suffer from any skin condition, please inform Dr. Rubinstein so he can determine if this procedure is suitable for you.
How Is the VI Peel™ Applied?
The VI Peel™ is a safe, convenient treatment that is performed in Dr. Rubinstein’s office and requires no pre-treatment or recovery period. First, the skin is cleansed; then the VI Peel™ will is applied topically to your skin by means of a soft brush or applicator. As the chemical begins to work, some patients may experience a warm, tingly sensation that quickly subsides. The procedure takes only 20 to 30 minutes, but must the chemical peel must remain on the skin for five hours following initial application.
What Can I Expect During Recovery?
No recovery is required after a VI Peel™. Peeling lasts approximately two to three days and may be easily managed with the post-peel kit that Dr. Rubinstein will provide with the peel. For one or two weeks following the peel, you should avoid skin-exfoliating products such as glycolic acid and retinols. Dr. Rubinstein also recommends that you avoid direct and prolonged exposure to the sun following a chemical peel such as the VI Peel™ and refrain from touching or pulling on the skin as it goes through the peeling process. The VI Peel™ works best when you just let it peel naturally. Once your skin has finished peeling and is completely recovered, you will see a visible improvement in your complexion. The condition and appearance of your skin will continue to improve over the course of the next four to six weeks, becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier, more luminous, and younger-looking.
