Aging affects the entire body, but it is often the facial skin that reveals the earliest signs of advancing years. To combat these signs, anti-aging treatments have become increasingly popular, with a wide range of options available, including chemical peels and microneedling. While each treatment can yield positive results on its own, combining them can provide even greater improvement in appearance. At Skin & Body Refinery, we are thrilled to offer patients the opportunity to benefit from a combined SkinPen microneedling and VI peel treatment, known as the Signature VI Needle and Peel.

What Does a SkinPen Treatment Do?

SkinPen is a device specifically designed for microneedling, a relatively new and highly successful cosmetic treatment aimed at enhancing skin appearance. During microneedling, the SkinPen device is carefully moved across the skin, creating numerous micro injuries with its tiny needles. These micro injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing processes, including collagen and elastin production, which are crucial for maintaining healthy, strong, and supple skin. By improving epidermal integrity, microneedling can effectively address various skin concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, melasma, rosacea, other types of scarring, and hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone. Microneedling is typically performed with a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Some blood spotting may occur, and patients can expect their faces to feel tender and slightly sore in the days and weeks following the procedure.

What are the Benefits of a VI Peel?

VI Peel, on the other hand, is a popular medical-grade chemical peel known for its gentle yet powerful effects. This painless peel is applied by a therapist and can be used on the face, neck, chest, and even the delicate area underneath the eyes. The peel contains a combination of trichloroacetic acid, tretinoic acid, and salicylic acid, which work together to remove damaged outer layers of skin, promote faster cell turnover, and refine the surface layer of the skin. VI Peel can effectively improve the appearance of acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, age and sun spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, rosacea, and oily skin. Unlike some other chemical peels, VIPeel is safe for use on all skin types and colors, although it is particularly effective on patients with fair to medium skin tones, as it can cause hyperpigmentation on darker skin tones.

Can You Combine Microneedling & Chemical Peel?

While both SkinPen and VIPeel are individually effective, experts have found that combining these treatments produces even more impressive results. The VIPeel is applied following the SkinPen treatment because the micro injuries created by the microneedling device enable faster and more effective absorption of the peel. This enhances its penetration into the deeper layers of the skin and intensifies its effects on cellular production. Alternatively, some patients choose to undergo a chemical peel a few weeks before microneedling with SkinPen. This approach kickstarts the process of removing older, unhealthier skin cells, allowing microneedling to be more effective in triggering the production of fresh, new skin cells.
