What Are the Benefits of a Medical Grade Peel?

By: Our Team


Countless products and treatments are available in the market for skincare. But what happens when over-the-counter creams and basic facials just don't seem to cut it? Beautiful Skin Denver may recommend a medical grade peel, also known as a chemical peel or VI Peel, to help you achieve a radiant complexion.

Our medical grade peel is designed to address a wide range of skin concerns. Call now for a consultation in Denver, CO, and learn more about the benefits of this powerful treatment.

How does a medical grade peel work?

A medical grade peel is a treatment that uses chemical solutions to exfoliate the top layer of skin. These peels are typically stronger than drugstore options, as they use higher concentrations of active ingredients. They're also performed in a medical setting by trained professionals to ensure safe results.

Once the peel solution is applied to the skin, it breaks down and removes dead skin cells, oils, and other impurities. It also stimulates cell turnover, allowing newer and healthier cells to surface. At Beautiful Skin Denver, we offer the advanced VI Peel for first-time patients and veterans.

Why choose a medical grade peel?

There are several reasons why a medical grade peel may be the right choice for your skincare needs in Denver, CO:

  • Effectiveness: VI Peels are powerful and penetrate deeper into the skin than over-the-counter products, making them more effective than other options.
  • Versatility: Peels target issues like fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin, sun damage, and rough texture. We can also customize the peel to your skin type and tone.
  • Long-term results: With regular treatments, medical grade peels improve the overall health of your skin long-term. They also boost the effectiveness of the skincare products you use at home.

Prevent signs of aging with medical grade peels

Chemical peels can not only improve existing skin concerns but also prevent future signs of aging. This is because peels stimulate collagen production, which is the protein that keeps our skin plump and firm. As we age, our bodies make less collagen, leading to a loss of elasticity and wrinkle formation. Medical grade peels allow you to slow down these signs and maintain a youthful complexion for even longer.

What is a chemical peel treatment like?

During an appointment at Beautiful Skin Denver, our professionals will first evaluate your skin and determine the best possible peel option. We then cleanse the treatment area and apply the chemical solution. You may experience a tingling or burning sensation, but most patients find the process to be tolerable. After neutralizing and removing the solution, we'll apply post-peel products to soothe the skin.

What happens after a medical grade peel?

It takes about one week for the skin to heal from a chemical peel and reveal a brighter, smoother complexion. Remember to follow all aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible results. This may involve avoiding direct sunlight and using gentle products for a few days. VI Peels can be repeated as needed, but we recommend waiting 3 – 4 weeks between sessions.
