What is a VI Peel?

A VI Peel in NYC is a painless, effective, skin rejuvenation treatment that produces results you can see and feel. It works by affecting the top layer of your facial skin, causing it to peel and shed, while triggering fresh skin cell growth. The peel experience is comfortable, as the formula contains a topical anesthetic.

What can I expect with a VI Peel?

A VI Peel is a fast treatment, requiring only about 30 minutes to complete. Your skin will be fully cleansed. It is then treated with acetone to remove any traces of oil, so the solution infuses into your skin evenly. Several layers of the VI Peel formula is applied. You may feel a tingling sensation, and your skin may appear slightly “frosted” in some areas. Once the peel has penetrated your skin, sunscreen is applied. The solution will remain on your skin after your treatment, to be removed at home in a few hours. You will be given several cleansing towelettes infused with vitamin C and tretinoin to boost the peeling effect.

Is there any recovery after a VI Peel?

Following your VI peel in New York , your skin may appear bronzed. This is a sign that pigmented skin cells are rising to the surface. You must keep your skin protected and hydrated during healing, and our skincare expert will recommend the best moisturizer for your skin type. Peeling starts at about day 3, and your skin may feel itchy. The peeling continues for about a week.

Your newly revealed, fresh skin will be sensitive, may appear reddened (like a mild sunburn), and you must avoid exposing it to the sun for a time, and always wear broad-spectrum sunscreen of 30 or higher SPF. For optimal results, you may need to undergo a series of VI Peel treatments, which can be performed every two to four weeks, and regular maintenance treatments to retain your refreshed, glowing skin.
