Want to know what it’s like to get a chemical peel? Find out by reading this first-hand experience with my first ever VI Peel.
When it comes to beauty, I’ve always kept it simple. For me, less is more when it comes to skincare and beauty products. For the last twenty-seven years I’ve had flawless skin. However these last six months have proven otherwise as I have been experiencing hormonal acne. I decided to consult with the aesthetician and skin care guru Jessica at CosmetiCare, and her best advice to help clear my skin was to do a series of chemical peels. She recommended I begin with the VI peel as it is a great introductory peel for someone who’s never experienced one. Also it’s an amazing treatment for individuals who are suffering from active acne breakouts, acne scarring, or hyperpigmentation issues like melasma. As someone who’s a newbie when it comes to skin care treatments I had no idea what to expect. I truly trusted Jessica to treat me as she best saw fit, and I was so excited to begin my journey to healthy, acne free skin.
While at My Appointment:
On the day of my appointment, I came into CosmetiCare and was quickly greeted by Jessica. She was informative and had such a calming demeanor about her. Whatever nervousness I had felt quickly vanished.
She explained the VI Peel to me in great detail- what ingredients were in the peel, and how they work in conjunction with my skin. After her explanation I knew that this was the perfect chemical peel for my skin type!
Getting the chemical peel itself was actually quick and easy, the treatment itself is only about ten minutes long and involves the application of the peel itself. After applying the first layer of the peel there was a minimal burning sensation, and Jessica was quick to hand me the fan to alleviate any burning. After the second layer of the peel, the burn subsided quickly, and over the next four hours the peel stayed on my face. I had no burning or discomfort, just mild tightness from the peel working its magic.
For best results, we decided to do a series of three VI peels, spaced four weeks apart. Here’s a breakdown of my VI peel journey:
