VI Peel is a gentle yet powerful medical-grade peel known as our “do it all peel.” Safe for ALL skin types. It uncovers a person’s best looking skin. This medium depth peel consists of a synergistic blend of five acids that no other peel offers:
- TCA – Trichloroacetic Acid for penetration, deep scar healing, and collagen stimulation
- RetinA – An acid derived from vitamin A to combat wrinkles
- Salicylic Acid – This beta hydroxy acid (BHA) is a strong exfoliant
- Phenol – A powerful acid with antiseptic and anesthetic properties that aids in skin penetration
- Vitamin C – Ascorbic acid has antioxidant and mild exfoliation properties
Best for: acne-prone skin, dry skin, oily skin, sensitive skin, sun-damaged skin (Almost ALL skin types)
What are the Benefits?
The VI Peel corrects skin problems at the cellular level rather than just burning off the skin. The combined actions of its many acids and vitamins help erase fine lines and wrinkles, shrink enlarged pores, and build collagen and elastin to tighten skin. It is extremely effective in eliminating hyperpigmentation, including melasma, and provides excellent results for patients with acne.
How many treatments do I need?
The number of treatments depends on the severity of the conditions you wish to correct and the amount of correction desired. A single VI Peel behaves like a superficial peel in relation to pain and downtime, but yields results equal to a medium depth peel. Three VI Precision Peels, two to four weeks apart, will produce results comparable to procedures like the Obagi Blue peel without the pain, extensive downtime, and cost associated with those peels.
Things you should know…
You should be prepared to peel like a snake! The VI Peel has no downtime for healing but the peeling will be much more extensive than ordinary chemical peels. The amount of peeling varies between individuals and clients who use RetinA or a topical Vitamin A and regularly exfoliate may experience only modest flaking. The moisturizer included with the peel will hide most of the effects but we recommend scheduling this peel at least ten days prior to any social events that would be impacted by flaking and peeling skin.
This treatment should not be performed if you have taken Accutane within the past twelve months or if you are sensitive or allergic to aspirin. You should avoid the use of RetinA, Renova, or glycolic acids within one day before or after the treatment.
The treatment includes dermaplaning prior to the VI Peel, as well as at-home products. It’s recommended to have another dermaplaning session 3-4 weeks after application to eliminate any traces of flaking and give your skin that polished, professional look. Why wait weeks or months for results when you can enjoy beautiful, radiant skin in about a week?
Obsolete peels of the past, without exception, epitomize the “no pain, no gain” approach to skin care. Before the VI Peel, the deeper the peel, the more painful it was, the more downtime you experienced, but the better the results were. The VI Peel is the first Next Generation Aesthetic. It is painless, yet produces dramatic visible results in just days with little to no downtime.
