VI Peel – Beverly Hills | Los Angeles
The VI Peel will improve the tone, texture and clarity of the skin; reduce or eliminate age spots, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation, including melasma; soften lines and wrinkles; clear acne skin conditions; reduce or eliminate acne scars; and stimulate the production of collagen, for firmer, more youthful skin. Vi Peel also works well in conjunction with lasers, injectables and post procedure.
At my last visit to Motykie Med Spa, I experienced the Hydrafacial which deep cleaned my skin in preparation for the results driven effects of the Vi Peel. I left the spa that afternoon counting the days until my next appointment and highly anticipating all of the amazing benefits my skin was in store for as discussed with my aesthetician Sacha.
Before the treatment began, Sacha went into detail about the results I would see and other expectations from the Vi Peel based on my skin analysis. Based on her assessment, she explained that the treatment would be most effective in a series of three. The first treatment would get me closer than I’ve ever been to the flawless skin I desire by significantly reducing the appearance of acne scarring, hyperpigmentation and fine lines, while revving up my skin’s cell turnover rate and collagen production. Application time to my face and decollate would be a mere thirty minutes of layering a strong, serum-like combination of TCA (A peeling agent), Tretinoic Acid (A powerful compound to prevent collagen loss and boost cell turn over), Salicylic Acid (Fighting breakouts and promoting clarity of the skin), Vitamin C (A natural brightener and exfoliator) and a Mineral Blend. It was additionally exciting to learn that Vi Peel is proudly, the only peel safe enough to be applied on the delicate eyelids and under eye areas further contributing to a complete look of flawless skin. Depending on the skin’s sensitivity, during the first minutes of application, a sensation ranging from stinging to burning may cause temporary discomfort. The downtime after the peel would be 5-7 days, when heavy peeling of the top layers of the skin is experienced. I could also expect itchiness, dryness and sensitivity to the sun on the affected areas during the peeling process.
The application process of the Vi Peel went smoothly and quickly. My skin looked instantly radiant and glowing because of the surface exfoliation experienced from the absorption of the treatment. My post peel care package included three Vi Peel Post Peel Towelettes, Vi Derm Post Peel Protectant and SPF 50+ Sun Protection.
After following all of the post treatment instructions, the skin on my face and decollate began peeling like clockwork the morning of day 3 and continued peeling for 6 more days. My skin was itchy and dry during most of the process, but the Vi Derm Post Peel Protectant did wonders to minimize my discomfort. I’m a purist and so, even though you are allowed to wear makeup the days before peeling begins, I skipped it all together. I had to work half the time I was peeling (I recommend taking some vacation time if at all possible to peel in private), which was alarming for my coworkers but the compliments I received afterwards on my radiant, smooth skin made it all completely worth it.
I looked like a shedding snake for a week but had skin like a newborn when all was said and done. My skin has NEVER looked and felt better. This is by far the best and most effective treatment I’ve received at Motykie Med Spa or any spa as a matter of fact. I highly recommend the VI Peel to anyone who is seeking a painless, result oriented treatment with minimal downtime. If you are still on the fence just take a look at my before and after pictures and let the results speak for themselves!
