Our Vita-K Chemical Peel Review and Results
What's in this article...
Chemical peels offers several benefits for aging or sun-damaged skin, and can help you achieve a more youthful look after a few simple treatments. Chemical peels were once reserved for the cosmetic surgery center or and dermatologist’s office, but at home chemical peel treatments are readily available from the local drugstore, and online.
The Vita-K Chemical Peel is one of the latest options available outside of the cosmetic surgeon’s office, and has quickly become a popular choice for many people looking for a simple, low-cost alternative to a professional treatment.
But does the Vita-K Chemical Peel work as well as a custom treatment from an aesthetician or licensed skincare professional? Here’s a closer look at the Vita-K Chemical Peel and skin rejuvenation plan:
The Vita-K Chemical Peel is a three-step system that promises ‘smoother, firmer, younger looking skin’ after just one application. The peel itself is made with a proprietary blend of hydroxyl acids that penetrate deep within the skin’s layers and help remove the top layer of skin as skin cells turn over.
The three-step process begins with the Exfoliating Scrub; this removes dead skin cells from the skin’s surface and also gets rid of oil, debris and any other buildup that may be clogging the pores.
The Chemical Peel solution is the second step of the Vita-K Chemical Peel system.
The peel can be applied during the day or overnight, but needs to be left on for at least 10 minutes to begin working. This solution sinks into the skin and to start breaking down skin cells under the top layer; this begins the skin rejuvenation process.
The third step of the Vita-K Chemical Peel is the Daily Moisturizer Treatment; the moisturizer helps the skin heal and recover from the chemical peel, and also encourages healthy skin growth.
The peel helps speed up the cell turnover process so that skin looks fresh and rejuvenated within 2 – 6 weeks.
Ultimately, the Vita-K Chemical Peel is a milder version of fruit and acid peels available at medspas and day spas; it is a deep exfoliating treatment that can clear up small blemishes, rejuvenate the skin and leave your skin feeling tight and firm.
The at-home chemical peel kit also comes with a valuable daytime moisturizer that can help protect the skin from further damage and sun exposure.
Are You a Good Candidate for the Vita-K Chemical Peel?
The Vita-K Chemical Peel may be a valuable solution for improving a dull complexion, buffing away dead skin cells, and creating a radiant glow.
You may be a good candidate for the Vita-K Chemical Peel if you have:
Oily skin that is prone to break outs
An overactive ‘T-zone’
Mild patches of acne
An uneven skin tone
A peel can help remove dead skin cells to reveal a healthy layer of skin underneath, and most people can see results from a chemical peel within 1 – 2 weeks, and achieve better results with a series of treatments spaced out every 2 – 4 weeks.
Bottom Line: While the Vita-K Chemical Peel offers several benefits for damaged skin, it may not be potent enough to treat some skin conditions such as rosacea, adult acne or extreme hyperpigmentation. The peel does contain ingredients that can make the skin excessively dry, and may not be suitable for sensitive skin types or for those with very thin and weak skin.
If you’re considering an at-home chemical peel, having a professional treatment first can determine if you are a good candidate for chemical facial peels. A cosmetic dermatologist can guide you through the chemical peel process and provide a customized treatment based on your skin type and key concerns.
