How Can I Treat Dark Circles?

Dark circles along with a variety of other concerns are treated with a unique chemical peel that’s revolutionizing the way we think about facial rejuvenation. The VI Peel is packed with collagen-inducing, skin-nourishing ingredients including TCA, salicylic acid, retinoic acid, phenol, and vitamin C. Together, the proprietary formula works to reverse the aging process leaving you with an instantly brighter complexion.

Am I A Good Candidate?

You may be a good fit for the VI Peel if you are unhappy with dark circles that won’t go away on their own. The treatment is able to address sensitive areas around the eyes and throughout the face. VI Peels produce a more youthful appearance by exfoliating the topmost layer of dead skin and debris.

VI Peels are safe and effective for most skin types, textures, and tones. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not considered candidates for this procedure. Your skincare specialist at Manhattan Aesthetics will help determine if the VI Peel is right for you at the time of your in-person consultation.

How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?

Patients love the VI Peel because it’s quick, easy, and virtually painless. The peel is applied in layers until desired results are achieved. Your provider monitors every step to ensure an optimal outcome for your skin. The VI Peel typically takes just 30-minutes from start to finish. Patients can expect to be in and out of the office within the hour.

What Results Will I See?*

A brighter, clearer, more even skin tone can be seen after just one VI Peel. Patients with severe concerns or overly dark circles below the eyes may need anywhere from 2-3 treatments to achieve an optimal outcome. However, you’ll see gradual improvement after each additional treatment. Final results from your procedure can be seen in about 1-week following your last session.

Is There Any Downtime?

There is limited downtime with the VI Peel. You should avoid sweating and direct sun exposure for several days post-treatment. Your provider will instruct you on when and how to remove your VI Peel at home. After about 3-days, your skin will begin to flake with peeling lasting about 1-week before fresh skin is revealed.
