VI Peel is an advanced and innovative skin rejuvenation procedure designed for people who want to avoid cosmetic surgery, but are interested in non-surgical solutions to revitalize the skin. VI Peel is uniquely formulated as a medium strength peel for minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment.

VI Peel is well-suited for people seeking to delay or minimize the early signs of aging and sun damage. Patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations have an opportunity to receive VI Peel treatment from board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards.  



Some of the key features of VI Peel that make it a popular procedure among people who are looking for alternatives to plastic surgery include:

  • Rebuilds depleted collagen to volumize and rejuvenate the skin
  • Treats meslasma and fine lines
  • Appropriate for all skin types, including dark skin
  • Social downtime involved is only three to four days
  • Ideal during fall, spring, winter seasons

To achieve best outcomes, the patient should avoid extreme sun exposure for at least three weeks following VI Peel treatment. The treatment combines five critical acids that will gently remove the topmost layer of damaged, aging skin to reveal new and healthy skin. At the same time, the procedure will trigger fresh production of collagen to create more natural looking and sustainable results.


Distinguishing Features

The VI Peel distinguishes itself from traditional chemical peels because it can create desirable anti-aging effects without the discomfort and prolonged downtime. Five rejuvenating acides in this medium depth peel include TCA, Retin-A, Salicylic Acid, Phenol, and Vitamin C.

These acids will work in combination to produce highly effective outcomes. New collagen fibers will fill the depressions and creases in the skin to create a smoother, more youthful skin appearance. The advanced formulation of VI Peel includes a numbing agent, which will help ensure that the patient goes through minimal discomfort during the procedure.

The treatment is ideal for people who want to restore an even, smooth and healthy skin tone as well as smooth away dry, rough or damaged skin without surgery. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richards provides VI Peel to patients in Las Vegas, NV and nearby areas.


How does it Work?

Each VI Peel treatment is customized according to the specific skin type and tone of a patient as well as to match with their personal cosmetic goals. The patient will be required to follow the pre- and post-treatment instructions of the specialist in order to achieve safe and desirable outcomes.

The treatment session will last for about 30 to 45 minutes, and will be performed in the comfort of the provider’s office. During the initial application, a minor tingling or stinging sensation may be experienced by a few patients, but it will dissipate quickly. Patients can return home after the treatment, but the peel must remain on the skin for at least four hours.

After the four-hour period, the patient can simply wash off the peel and apply any aftercare products provided by the specialist. In the first one or two days, the patient should avoid doing strenuous activities or exercises, and they can expect a social downtime of about three to four days.

MicroLaserPeel for Wrinkles, Scars, and Sun Damage | Las VegasWomen and men who are bothered by the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and sun damage on the face have the option of cosmetic surgery to improve the condition. However, not every individual wants to undergo an invasive procedure for cosmetic purposes, and want to choose a non-surgical alternative.

Such individuals may make good candidates for MicroLaserPeel, which is a safe and effective procedure to enhance skin texture and appearance using a special laser technique. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides MicroLaserPeel, popularly known as a ‘Weekend Peel’ to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding locations.


Conditions Treated

MicroLaserPeel procedure will gently remove a thin layer of the outer damaged skin to improve texture and restore a smoother look. High precision of depth in this procedure can ensure superior outcomes while treating different skin conditions. Unlike plastic surgery, this procedure can be performed in-office, and can be customized to match with the specific skin condition and the patient’s unique cosmetic goals.

The most common treatment areas are the face and the neck, but in a few cases, chest and hand may also be treated with MicroLaserPeel. Typical skin conditions that are treated effectively with this procedure include:

  • Mild wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Keratosis
  • Sun damage (such as freckles)
  • Pigment irregularities


How does it Work?

The treatment provider will focus the MicroLaserPeel’s laser beam over the affected area to precisely ablate or vaporize a very thin layer of the skin in order to remove dead skin cells and old, damaged tissue. This will help the patient get rid of superficial blemishes and pigment irregularities that are causing a tired and aged look.

As the healing of the skin occurs, new cell growth and resurfacing takes place in the treated sites. It will restore rejuvenated and healthier looking skin, often with enhanced color evenness and reduced fine lines. Many patients report that their skin transitioned from look old and tired to vibrant and young.



Prior to the procedure, the patient’s eyes will be covered with a safety shield for protection and the treated area will be cleansed and disinfected. The laser expert will position the MicroLaserPeel hand unit above the targeted area and will hold it in place as the computer guided scanner moves the laser beam over the area. The procedure may last for about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of surface area to be treated.

MicroLaserPeel is a gentle procedure and the laser beams will not penetrate very deep into the skin. Therefore, the patient will usually experience very little discomfort or pain. When the treatment is delivered at its most shallow settings, most patients will be able to tolerate the procedure without any need for an anesthetic. But at deeper settings, the provider will use a topical numbing gel to keep the patient comfortable.

The total number of treatment sessions can vary from one patient to another according to their specific needs. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV and nearby areas for MicroLaserPeel procedure.

Your face is constantly exposed to the sun, wind, and environmental pollution. At the same time, the aging process and gravitation forces are continually at work, leading to the appearance of aging signs on the face. Although cosmetic surgery options are available for facial rejuvenation, but not every individual is ready for an invasive surgery.

HydraFacial MD is a unique non-invasive solution to keep the facial skin renewed and glowing. Periodic HydraFacial treatments can continue to keep the skin looking healthier, younger and brighter. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides HydraFacial treatments to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding communities.


Recommendation for HydraFacial

HydraFacial MD is a powerful treatment to rejuvenate the face and remove superficial skin imperfections. Unlike plastic surgery, the results with this non-invasive procedure will only sustain for the short term. But the advantage is that a person can periodically repeat HydraFacial procedure to continually maintain a youthful and radiant skin appearance.

Many people are able to notice visible skin refinement and an even and glowing skin tone after only a single treatment of HydraFacial MD. Optimal results and hydration in the skin will usually last for about one week or even longer in some cases. Thereafter, the effects will progressively diminish.

Therefore, it is normally advisable to have one treatment of HydraFacial per month in order to achieve deeper and more sustainable outcomes in terms of reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, and improvement of oily skin, clogged pores and brown spots. HydraFacial MD manufacturer recommends continued treatments to maintain skin health results.


Variable Factors

While receiving a comprehensive facial treatment such as HydraFacial MD should be a part of an individual’s custom skin care management plan, but the frequency of treatment can vary from one individual to another due to several factors. Many people feel so satisfied with the outcome immediately after the treatment session that they want to make their next appointment at the earliest.

But the key to long term success with procedures such as HydraFacial lies in choosing an appropriate interval between two treatments. There is no single or standard time cycle that every individual can follow. This is because the time gap required between two treatments will depend on the individual’s skin type, age, level of environmental exposure, and personal cosmetic goals.


General Trend

In many cases, a skin care expert will recommend a professional facial such as HydraFacial MD to be received every four weeks. This is the approximate time period it takes for the skin to go through the full life cycle of skin cell growth and exfoliation. HydraFacial will help in maintaining that process at its optimal level. The treatment will promote skin regularity, clarity, evenness, and youthfulness.

With a single treatment, the individual can maintain the desired skin glow all month long. If a person experiences specific conditions such as frequent acne breakouts, they may have to adjust their frequency of facials as per the guidance of the skin care expert. Experienced cosmetic surgeon Dr. Richards receives patients from Las Vegas, NV and suburbs and cities around Vegas for HydraFacial MD treatments.
