Good candidates for VI Peel treatments are typically individuals who want to improve mild to moderate imperfections in the skin, including sun damage, dark spots, melasma, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and rough texture.
The VI Peel is a non-invasive painless treatment, and during application can feel like mild tingling. VI Peel treatments take approximately 30 minutes and begin with cleansing the treatment area with acetone to degrease the skin and ensure the peel’s acids and vitamins can deeply penetrate the dermis. This is followed by the application of several layers of peel solution which takes only minutes. Once the VI Peel solution has penetrated the skin completely sunscreen will be applied. Patients can expect to leave with the solution on instructions on when to rinse it off at home.
VI Peel Recovery
Following a VI Peel, there is no downtime, however, patients should avoid wetting the treated area for at least 24 hours and avoid sun exposure and makeup until the skin has had a chance to fully heal. Patients should expect mild pain, irritation, flaking, and redness, for roughly one week following treatment, beginning on day three and culminating on day seven.
VI Peel Results
Patients can expect to see visible improvements to treated skin approximately one week following treatment after the skin has finished peeling. Full results are apparent in 4-6 weeks, when the skin will be noticeably clearer, firmer, and have a radiant and youthful glow.

How much is a VI Peel?
VI Peels can range in price depending on a variety of factors, including the number of treatment areas as well as the peel formulation required to achieve your desired results. The best way to determine the exact pricing is to schedule a consultation.
How many VI Peel treatments will I need?
While most patients will see visible results after just one treatment, best results are achieved with 3-6 VI Peel treatments each spaced between 2-4 weeks apart. Following the initial treatment series, patients can maintain their VI Peel results with 1-2 treatments per year.
Who should not have VI Peel treatment?
VI Peels are generally safe for all skin complexions, but individuals with a history of abnormal scarring may not be suitable candidates for this treatment.1 Moreover, certain contraindications should be taken into consideration. These include individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have allergies to aspirin, hydroquinone, or phenol, have recently used Accutane or undergone chemotherapy/radiation within the past 6 months, have active cold sores, warts, or open wounds, or have a history of autoimmune diseases like lupus or liver disease/disorder.
How long will my VI Peel results last?
VI Peel results typically last 3-4 months. Results can be extended with proper skin care and maintenance peels.
