Chemical Peels 101

Chemical peels are liquid chemical solutions that work to deeply cleanse and act as a skin exfoliant. The solution is applied onto the face (or other areas of the body) to slough off deep layers of dry, dead skin over time. 

Chemical peels can be used on the face, neck, hands, and body making them a multi-functional option. 

Each chemical peel is uniquely formulated to treat specific concerns and can be customized directly for your skin’s needs.

Some of the concerns they target include:

  • Damage from excessive UV and sun exposure
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Dryness and texture
  • Hyperpigmentation and age spots

Types of Chemical Peels

As mentioned previously, chemical peels are customized based on your needs. There are a variety of different brands that make specific solutions, with each brand offering its own formulations.

Generally, peels are broken down into three main categories: superficial, medium, and deep. These range in intensity, with superficial peels being the most gentle, medium peels going a bit deeper, and deep peels being the most intensive.

The VI Peel 

Duluth Med Spa offers the VI Peel, which is considered superior to other choices due to the wide array of benefits it provides and its unique advantages.

The VI Peel is a medium-strength peel that blends a comprehensive bundle of active ingredients, including salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), phenol, vitamin C, and retinoic acid. While combining the strongest and most effective acids, this highly sought-after peel is still: 

  • Virtually painless
  • Requires minimum downtime
  • Suitable for all skin types

Each VI Peel generally lasts around 3-4 months, with follow-up peels recommended to maintain results. VI Peels are safe, effective, and a first-rate option in the medical aesthetics community.

Recovery Time

While each peel will vary, the VI Peel generally requires minimal downtime. There will be a period of recovery where your skin will temporarily be more sensitive to the sun and in general.

  1. Avoid sun exposure
  2. Use gentle and all-natural skincare products
  3. Keep your skin moisturized 
  4. Stay hydrated 
  5. Peeling is normal – don’t pick!
