Peel Season

I don’t know about you but when I think of fall, I think of colorful leaves, pumpkin flavored everything and peeling away that summer damage! Okay maybe I’m the only one who thinks of that last one but typically, October is the start of peel season! With cooler weather and a lower UV index (FINALLY!) hitting AZ this is the time of year we recommend getting those more aggressive downtime treatments. Although, 2020 has really left it open for us to have all the major downtime treatments at any time with all the staying at home we’ve been doing, let’s be real.

To Peel or Not to Peel

That is always a good question! Many people have been interested in a deeper chemical peel but have never done one. Whether or not they are a good candidate for our deeper VI Peels is a common question I get. VI Peels are great for all skin types and treat a variety of skin concerns! Most people are a good candidate for this type of treatment except for people who are pregnant, breast feeding, or allergic to Aspirin.  Besides that, I personally don’t recommend this peel for those people who will pick or pull of that peeling skin before it’s ready (aka me). VI Peels do require you to have some downtime meaning no sun exposure, no exercise or heating up your core temperature, no makeup and definitely no picking. Those who can’t give those things up for 7 days (again, me) are not recommended for this peel.

VI Peel, VI Advanced and VI Peel Precision Plus

For those of you who want your face to fall off and reveal brand new baby skin underneath, these peels are for you! All three of the VI Peels we carry are safe for all skin types, medium-depth peels, have results in 7 days, and are safe to use for all Fitzpatrick types I-VI.
