Day of the procedure
The VI Peel treatment is very convenient as it can be performed in Dr. Khalifeh’s office and requires no pre-treatment.
On the morning of your procedure, wash your face with the usual moisturizer. Do not apply make-up. After the skin is cleaned with pure acetone, VI Peel will be applied topically to your skin. Patients typically experience a warm, tingly sensation that quickly subsides. The procedure only takes 15 to 30 minutes, but the patient must leave the peel on the skin for four hours.
Immediately following the peel, skin may look light yellow, red or tan. The yellow color is due to the Retinoic Acid included in the formulation; it is temporary and will fade in minutes.
