VI Peel Sun Damage Skin Care
One of the biggest contributors to the skin looking older is pigment. Hyper-pigmentation on the face in the form of brown spots, sun damage and melasma block the reflection of light, making the skin appear dull and aged. Most of the sun damage on our skin was formed in our adolescent years. Slowly the pigment reaches the surface and can leave you feeling overwhelmed on how to address it.
At IVme we have the perfect option to target unsightly brown spots and renew the skin all together. The VI Precision Plus peel is formulated with 5 of the top acids available in medical skin care today. Combined with lightening agents Hydroquinone and Kojic Acid this peel will leave your skin looking bright and clear. If you’re tired of covering up the uneven pigment on your skin, contact your local IVme center today to schedule your complimentary skin analysis.
What is Sun Damage
Damage from the sun is seen on the skin in many different forms. Freckles, age spots, brown spots and skin laxity are all signs of too much sun. Even if you are doing everything now to protect your skin, you may be feeling frustrated with new brown spots appearing regularly. Did you know that most sundamge that is surfacing now was formed before you were 18? Let’s be real, years ago we didn’t know the extent of the damage the sun could cause. Now it’s all surfacing and can be stubborn to treat. Our highly trained and knowledgeable aesthetics team can help you reverse the signs of aging and too much time in the sun and educate you on the steps you can take now to prevent and protect your skin.
How to Address Sun Damage
The first step in correcting sun damage is increasing cell turnover. As we age, our skin cell turnover rate drastically slows. By increasing the cell turnover we are able to remove surface damage and leave a clean slate for product absorption. Chemical peels are one of the best options available to remove surface dead skin cells. The VI Precision Plus is a medium depth peel that not only stimulates cell turnover, it also works on lightening and removing existing pigment. This delivers smoother, brighter and younger looking skin. Depending on the severity of the hyper pigmentation, multiple peels may be required to achieve desired results. Peels can be spaced four to six weeks apart for effective results, followed by maintenance of monthly facials and the proper at home skin care regime for you. Your skin care professional will work with you to format the best treatment plan for you.
How to Maintain VI Precision Plus Results
While the VI Precision Plus Peel delivers great results, the addition of medical grade skin care products will enhance and maintain your results. Pigment from sun damage can be stubborn and deep. Remember, the damage didn’t form over night, and as amazing as it would be, it can’t be removed with one treatment. The addition of prescription strength lightening products and retinol will be able to absorb into the skin more effectively following a chemical peel. These types of medical grade products will enhance your results and continue the lightening of pigment. Our pigment corrector kits are a must have addition for treating visible sun damage.
In addition to using retinol and hydroquinone, avoiding direct sun exposure is imperative for maintenance. Getting in the habit of wearing a stable antioxidant and broad spectrum every day, will ensure you are always protected.
