Acne, also known as pimples, is the single most prevalent skin condition affecting humans worldwide. Around 80% of people are affected by acne in their lifetime. It affects people of all ages and genders, mainly affecting ages 12 to 25 years old. Many aesthetic treatments are not introduced to combat acne’s effects, including VI Peel.
VI Peel is one of the latest chemical peels getting attention due to its minimal but high-impact approach. The treatment promises rejuvenated skin along with treating the effects of acne. On top of that, the results are almost immediate, making it a dream solution for many.
But before you jump into the trend, take a closer look at the facts behind the treatment. Are they really as effective as they are promoted to be? Get the full story first behind VI peel and see if it really works or not.
What Is VI Peel?
VI Peel is a facial peel designed to penetrate the superficial layers of the skin. Vitality Institute trademarks the product, hence the “VI” on the product name.
The VI Peel uses a patented formula that contains different acids, retinol, vitamins, and minerals. These formula mixtures can penetrate deep into your pores and dissolve the dirt, oil, and dead cells in your skin. This will help clean out your pores and give you a more even complexion.
According to Vitality Insitute, the treatment is safe and effective for all age groups who desire refreshed, radiant, and healthy skin. VI Peel is also available regardless of skin tone, type, and ethnicity.
The secret behind the treatment is thanks to its unique blend of formulas that synergizes perfectly together. It all comes to the ingredients that include trichloroacetic acid (10 to 12 percent), phenol (10 to 12 percent), salicylic acid (10 to 12 percent), vitamin C (4 percent), and tretinoin (0.1 to 0.4 percent).
All of these ingredients have remarkable benefits on their own, like improving skin complexion, rejuvenating the skin, improving texture, and preventing skin damage—all in one blend. The formula also contains pain-numbing ingredients, making the experience comfortable and gentle. Although it’s still a chemical peel, it’s more focused on experiencing its benefits than peeling the skin off.
What’s In The Ingredients?
That’s nice and all, but what is behind all of these ingredients? Is each ingredient effective as they claim? Here’s everything you should know about the ingredients from inside and out.
- Trichloroacetic Acid: The primary mechanism of action of trichloroacetic acid is to remove the dead layers of skin cells, revealing the new skin layers below. It is effective for various skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, and burns.
- Phenol: Phenol has been used in skin care treatments for centuries. It has been used as a disinfectant, astringent, and antiseptic. Phenol is also known to have antibacterial properties that can prevent the growth of bacteria in the treated area.
- Salicylic Acid: Salicylic Acid is alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) used in skincare treatments as an exfoliant. It helps to unclog pores and slough off dead skin cells, increasing collagen and elastin production, resulting in smoother and younger-looking skin. It also has antibacterial properties that can help with acne breakouts.
- Vitamin C: Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin from inflammation and UV damage. It also prevents the formation of wrinkles and pigmentation while fighting free radicals in the skin.
- Tretinoin: Tretinoin is a retinoid, a type of vitamin A derivative used in skincare treatments. It has been used to treat acne, wrinkles, and other skin conditions. The most common side effects of tretinoin are dryness, peeling, and redness.
Does VI Peel Treat Acne?
Vitality Institute has conducted a thorough survey on 100 subjects to check their experience and outcome from the VI peel treatment. The survey was to capture the participant’s feedback on the benefits of the VI peel during and then after the treatment. So it’s a two-phase survey.
First Phase Survey
They found that 98% of the participants considered the procedure non-painful, with 94% reporting that they experienced little to no discomfort. The survey also determined that 95% of the participants have claimed that their skin looks rejuvenated and overall better than before the VI peel.
Of the 100 participants, they’ve found out that 63% of them never had chemical peel treatment in their lifetime.
Second Phase Survey
The second phase is about capturing the outcomes relating to the participant’s concerns and their interpretations of how effective the VI Peel is for them. The data has shown that participants were delighted with their results, as 93% said that they saw a visual difference in the texture and smoothness of their skin.
At the same time, 94% stated that their skin has actually become more rejuvenated, radiant, and overall improved. Not just visual improvements on their skin, but actual, tangible improvements.
So is it effective? Yes, very much so. The treatment has been proven to reduce acne by up to 70% in just 12 weeks.
Other Benefits Of VI Peel
VI Peel is known for its effectiveness in addressing pimples and acne breakouts. However, even if you don’t have acne problems at the moment, you can still try the treatment and see some improvements. Here are other benefits you can take from VI Peel:
- Reduces Wrinkles And Fine Lines: The VI Peel also rejuvenates the skin by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin fibers, which are essential for healthy and youthful-looking skin. This effectively reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
- Reduces Sun Pots And Hyperpigmentation: VI peel has been proven to reduce sunspots and hyperpigmentation, giving users a more even skin tone. It also provides an instant glow, making the user look younger and healthier.
