What is a Vi peel?
The Vi peel is a pharmaceutical-grade chemical peel designed for anyone with prone skin and acne scars who wants clearer, brighter, healthier skin. Vi peels are designed to improve acne, tone, texture, reduction and/or elimination of bacteria. Pore size will appear to be reduced and the dermis will appear clearer. As all peels, the Vi peel will stimulate the production of collagen and elastin though generating a firmer skin. The Vi peel consists in a synergistic blend of acids not offered by other peels:

- Benzoyl Peroxide – removes bacteria, clears the pores and increases cell turnover
- Salicylic Acid – this beta hydroxyl acid (BHA) is a defoliant causing the cells of your epidermis to shed, opening clogged pores and neutralizing bacteria within, while constricting the pore diameter to prevent further clogging
- Kojic Acid – used in cosmetics to preserve or change colors of substances. It brightens skin and reduces acne scars.
- TCA – trichloroacetic acid for a deep dermis penetration and deep scar healing stimulates collagen growth.
- Retin-A – acid derived from vitamin A to combat wrinkles. It works at the cellular level to improve your skin’s health and appearance.
- Phenol – has antiseptic and anesthetic properties, aids in-skin penetration.
What kind of pretreatment is required?
Avoid the following products and/or procedures ONE WEEK BEFORE your scheduled Vi peel!
Electrolysis, waxing, sunless tanning or UV free tanning, depilatory creams, laser hair removal. Patients who have medical cosmetic treatments or procedures (e.g. laser therapy, surgical procedures, cosmetic filler, microdermabrasion, etc.) should wait until skin sensitivity completely resolves. Patients who had BOTOX injections should wait with the treatment until all bruising subsides.
What you should expect to happen during a Vi peel
First your skin will be cleansed and died. Then the solution will be applied on face, neck and/or neckline and hands. This results virtually discomfort free. Clients typically experience a warm, tingly sensation which quickly subsides. After application, you will have a 10 minutes LED session while the acids are being absorbed for advanced penetration. Terminating the LED session you will be given a TAKE HOME KIT along with specific instructions in order to help maximizing the benefits of your VI peel treatment by protecting and nourishing the skin post peel.
What to expect after the Vi peel
Upon leaving the Spa, the remaining residue is left on your skin for A MINIMUM of 4 HOURS. You will also receive a take home kit along with specific instructions. It is essential to follow these instructions given, in order to maximize the benefits of the Vi peel.
