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.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
