TREATMENT

The VI Peel is a premixed formula containing TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid) for collagen stimulation and skin penetration, Phenol for skin soothing and penetration, Salicylic Acid for exfoliation, Tretinoin for anti-aging and collagen stimulation, and Vitamin C for anti-oxidant benefits and mild exfoliation. The peel is applied in layers and left on the skin for 6 hours; you’ll leave Kucumber with the peel still on your skin. After six hours, you rinse off the peel; the initial effects will be immediately visible with brighter and tighter-looking skin. Following treatment, you use a specialized seven day at-home skin care regimen to protect your skin and enhance the outcomes of your Vi Peel.

Your knowledgeable Kucumber specialist will assess your basic medical history and skin conditions, and discuss your treatment goals to determine which formula strength in the Vi Peel family is right for you.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The VI Peel is designed to be gentle and is well-tolerated by most patients of various skin types and colors. Typically, your treated skin will begin to slough off by day three, with the peeling continuing between three and seven days. When the VI Peel is applied to the body, peeling usually lasts longer, from three to ten days. Moisturizer is provided in your post-peel care kit to help address the dryness and flaking of the skin-shedding process. Post-peel skincare includes sun care products; these will be provided and must be used to ensure optimal outcomes. The noticeable improvement should last eight to twelve weeks, and longer in some cases. Patients with more severe skin issues may need to repeat the procedure to achieve optimal results.

Whatever your unique skin type and concerns, you can revitalize your special natural beauty with the VI Peel at Kucumber.
