We have heard it all here at Golden Isles Center for Plastic Surgery. We have heard every question, concern, comment, etc. You name it! But the one thing we hear the most often is whether or not it is a good idea to get a peel in the summertime.
To be direct: The summertime is a great time to get a VI Peel!
Disregard the stigma you may have heard from your friend or family member that it’s just not a good idea, because that isn’t true. No more excuses! It’s time to shed that dead skin, even out the tone of your skin, and address that acne that just doesn’t want to go away.
Check out these five good reasons as to why you should say YES to a VI Peel this summer:
- You want the Glow (but not the grease)
VI Peels contain Salicylic Acid which helps absorb and control excess oil in the skin, summertime chemical peels are a great option for those of us who are tired of reaching for an oil blotting sheet every hour. The VI Peel Purify is ideal for oily, acne prone folks, however all VI Peels contain salicylic acid so you can look forward to all the glow but without the grease. More on the dry side? Don’t fret, salicylic bonuses as a key ingredient for smoothing out the skin, giving you a poreless appearance. Either way, you are going to love it!
- You want a Quick Fix
Time has flown by and the wedding of the year or that epic annual BBQ is just around the corner. Everyone is going to be there, including that Chris Pratt look-alike you’ve had your eye on since high school (sigh). Unlike many other cosmetic procedures, the VI Peel has you prepped and peeled to perfection in just 7 days! No need to splurge on a professional makeup artist, your makeup will apply smoother than ever on your baby skin. At Golden Isles Center for Plastic Surgery, we have combined three amazing non-surgical procedures together to create a cosmic transformation without going under the knife. We start with some BOTOX ®, depending on your needs, this can be used to smooth out those tiny fine lines around the eyes, or maybe you have that permanent frown going with some 11s in the middle of your eyebrows. Then the VI peel is applied to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, even skin tone and address those stubborn breakouts. Lastly the transformation is completed with a lip augmentation using Fillers. These three simple procedures will leave you with a boost in your confidence and a little extra pep in your step!
- You Prefer to go “Au Natural”
Summer is the time to ditch the full coverage foundations and let your skin breathe. Addicted to your long wearing, full coverage foundation? If you find yourself constantly trying to cover and conceal, you’ll love the VI Peel Precision Plus. Fade away the proof of sun damage or aging with this pigment-erasing solution ex-sun worshipers know and love. At Golden Isles Center for Plastic Surgery we have combined the VI Peel Precision Plus with the Photofacial called Lumecca by Inmode Aesthetics. The Lumecca is a laser treatment that addresses stubborn pigment that is deep in the skin. By alternating these two treatments you will improve the appearance of age spots, reduce sun damage, and improve the overall complexion of your skin to leave you with that radiant glow!
- You’re a Master Planner
Your time is precious, and you know your way around a Google Calendar. Peel like a VI Pro and schedule your peel on a Thursday, leaving your main peeling days to Saturday and Sunday. See our blog [here] about what to expect each day of your peel and ideas for keeping busy while indoors. With proper care and planning, you will be a glowing goddess in time for happy hour cocktails with your coworkers come Monday!
- You’d rather take two steps forward than three steps back
Allow your skin to correct and resurface itself instead of creating more UV induced damage by practicing safe sun and avoiding prolonged direct sun exposure. Living in a beach community like Saint Simons Island we are constantly doing things outdoors. We are not suggesting for you to become a hermit. We are just saying to practice safe sun by wearing protective gear such as hats and surf shirts as well as re-application of SPF. Summer is the perfect time to treat and remove last year’s sun damage that you never got around to addressing. Alternatively, you can get a chemical peel nearing the end of the summer to be glowing for your last hurrah cookout while treating sun damage from prior weeks or months of outdoor summer activities. Now that’s a win-win!
Treat yourself this summer. Be sure to avoid prolonged direct sun exposure and away from steam heat during your 7 days of peel. Wearing and reapplying SPF will help to ensure optimum results from your VI Peel.
