Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards is pleased to offer medium-strength chemical peel at his laser center and medical spa in Las Vegas, Nevada. Your customized VI Peel will be performed in the comfort of our spa-like office by our specialist Lynette Stephens, working under the close supervision of Dr. Richards. Lynette has more than 20 years of experience performing a full range of non-invasive and minimally-invasive skin treatments, and like Dr. Richards, prides herself on offering cutting-edge skin care services such as the powerful anti-aging VI Peel.
How is the VI Peel Different?
The VI Peel can deliver dramatic anti-aging results without the discomfort and extensive downtime of traditional chemical peels. This medium-depth peel is composed of five rejuvenating acids—TCA, Retin-A, Salicylic Acid, Phenol, and Vitamin C—designed to gently remove damaged skin cells while stimulating the rebuilding of natural collagen levels in order to reveal fresh, plump, healthy skin. This advanced formulation also contains a numbing agent to help minimize discomfort during the treatment!
The VI Peel is ideal for patients seeking a minimally-invasive treatment that can help:
- Soften fine lines and wrinkles
- Reverse early signs of aging, sun damage, and environmental exposure
- Treat the appearance of melisma and other pigmentation problems
- Restore an even, smooth, healthy skin tone
- Smooth away rough, dry, damaged skin
How the VI Peel Works
The VI Peel works by gently removing dead and damaged skin cells in order to reveal the bright, healthy skin underneath. Each VI Peel is customized to the skin type and tone of each patient, as well as to specifically address each patient’s unique goals; however, it is critical that every patient follow the detailed pre- and post-treatment instructions provided by our specialist.
The VI Peel can be applied in the comfort of our office and usually takes between 30 and 45 minutes to apply. During the initial application, some patients may experience a slight stinging or tingling sensation, which should subside quickly. After the application, patients may return home but the peel must remain on the skin for at least four hours. After this four-hour wait, the patient should wash off the peel and apply any aftercare products provided by our specialist.
Most patients should expect to refrain from sweating from vigorous exercise or strenuous activities during the first 24-28 hours after the peel, and should expect about 3-4 days of social downtime. The skin in the application area will begin to peel about two or three days after the treatment and may continue for up to seven days; the use of moisturizer can help reduce the appearance of peeling during this time. It is critical to avoid the use of cosmetics and protect the skin from the sun with sunscreen of at least SPF 30 during this healing process. Most patients will see visible results after seven days!
