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.
How long do the results last?
For best results, the VI Peel should be performed three to four times every year.
Does the VI Peel have a long recovery time?
No. Your skin should have completed the peeling phase within about 7 days.
How is a VI Peel different from other chemical peels?
