Dealing with stubborn acne can be frustrating. If your skin feels rough from breakouts or frequent sun exposure, chemical peels can help revitalize your skin for a healthier appearance. A VI peel is a chemical peel featuring a unique blend of five amino acids. These amino acids are designed to target a variety of skin conditions and are safe for all skin types.

How Does VI Peel Work?

The amino acids in VI peel penetrate the skin to inhibit melanin production and boost collagen levels. During treatment, the skin is cleansed, and the solution is applied evenly in two phases. A cooling device can be used to help minimize any discomfort. You can resume normal activities immediately. The solution will need to be washed off five hours after your session.

Expect mild skin flaking and redness for about a week after the procedure. Full desired results can take up to six weeks to appear. To achieve optimal results, you may need three to six sessions spaced about a month apart. To maintain your results, you may need biannual treatments regularly. The VI peel can be used with other aesthetic procedures for facial rejuvenation.

VI Peel Ideal Candidates

Ideal candidates for a VI peel are seeking to heal acne breakouts and reverse early signs of aging. The treatment may cause hyperpigmentation in individuals with darker skin tones. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon can help determine if this treatment is right for you.
