What Is a VI Peel?

VI peel is a treatment that improves skin texture, tone, and clarity. It uses 
an innovative solution developed by Vitality Institute. The main ingredients include TCA (trichloroacetic acid), retinoic acid, salicylic acid, and vitamin C. The solution causes controlled damage to the skin layers to promote renewal and collagen production. It is considered a medium-depth chemical peel that can treat skin damage, fine lines, and pigmentation.

The frequency of VI peel treatments

The frequency of VI peel treatments depends on the patient’s skin condition. This procedure can address a wide range of issues, including:
There should be pauses of at least a month between treatments to make sure that they do not cause unwanted side effects. After several sessions, the skin becomes smoother and more youthful-looking.

VI Peel Procedure

This procedure is performed without any anesthesia. Since it is a light chemical peel that only affects the epidermis, no numbing is needed.

Skin Preparation

The skin is thoroughly cleaned and prepped to remove any lotions, makeup, or oils that may interfere with the peel solution. An alcohol-based solution is often used to degrease the skin.
The VI peel solution is painted onto the skin in thin even layers using a brush or applicator. Multiple coats are applied until the skin has an even yellow appearance from the product. The number of layers is customized based on skin type and condition. Sensitive areas like the eyes may have fewer coats.
Once the entire face and neck area has been covered with the peel solution, it is left to set on the skin for a few minutes until it turns frosty white. This indicates that the acids have penetrated the skin, and the peel is set.
The peel is washed off 4-6 hours after the procedure using water and a mild cleanser. It is important to remove it at least one hour before going to bed. Patients should avoid using any creams or products before the peel is washed off.

Recovery After VI Chemical Peels

After the procedure, it is normal for the skin to be red and swollen for 2-5 days. Crusting and flaking occur as the skin peels, which can last up to 14 days. It is important not to pick or pull the peeling skin. Patients should use a gentle cleanser and moisturizer. They must also avoid sun exposure and strenuous exercise during the recovery period. Sun damage can make skin more sensitive and vulnerable to UV radiation. Most patients heal completely within 14-21 days and see significant improvements. For proper healing, it is crucial to closely follow all aftercare instructions from our specialists.

Candidates for VI Peel

Moderate Wrinkling & Good Health
Candidates for the VI peel procedure typically have moderate facial wrinkling and uneven skin tone they want to improve. They should generally be in good health to tolerate the treatment.
Skin Type
Fitzpatrick skin types I-IV tend to respond best to the VI peel. However, due to the risks of side effects, those with very sensitive skin or types V-VI may require a modified approach. We evaluate each individual’s characteristics during the initial consultation.
Healthy Lifestyle
The VI peel works best for those who follow healthy lifestyles without extensive unprotected sun exposure or smoking, which can undermine results. Patients who already care well for their skin before treatment tend to see better outcomes.
To achieve optimal VI peel results, candidates must commit 
to the required care regimen. This involves avoiding the sun, keeping the skin moisturized as it recovers from peeling, and allowing the natural healing process to occur without disruption.
Applying products that contain salicylic acid or TCA during pregnancy can increase risks. Thus, patients should consult with our providers to decide if this procedure is safe for them.

Benefits of VI Peel

Improves Skin Texture and Tone

The VI peel contains a blend of gentle yet powerful ingredients that work together to improve skin texture and tone. The acid solution exfoliates (removes dead skin cells) the outer layers of the skin, revealing fresher ones underneath. It also targets pigmentation issues to even out the tone. The peel stimulates new skin cell turnover to promote a healthier complexion. It is much more effective than superficial peels
The exfoliating agents in the VI peel solution remove dead skin cells and debris that can clog pores. This cleansing action helps to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores. The peel’s antioxidants and vitamins also nourish the skin to restore clarity. The overall result is a smooth, clear complexion with less visible pores.
The VI peel features potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory ingredients that help to treat acne breakouts and prevent future ones. Salicylic acid penetrates pores to eliminate acne-causing bacteria. Retinoic acid unclogs pores and allows them to drain properly. Together, these ingredients clear up existing blemishes while stopping new ones from forming. The peel is especially effective for treating acne scars by resurfacing the skin.
Ingredients like retinoic acid and vitamin C in the VI peel solution work to inhibit excess melanin production that causes pigmentation and discoloration. These powerful brightening agents fade brown spots and treat melasma to make the skin tone more even and radiant. The peel also boosts new collagen to plump up and smooth out skin.
As the peel removes damaged outer layers and stimulates collagen production and cell turnover, it prepares the skin to better absorb products applied afterward. Because the surface layer is refined by the peel, skincare ingredients like antioxidants, peptides, hyaluronic acid, and retinoids can penetrate deeper more effectively. This allows the skin to fully benefit from the anti-aging, hydrating, and renewing effects. After a VI peel, patients notice that their usual serums and creams seem to work better and give more dramatic results.
One of the most desirable effects of the VI peel is its ability to dramatically reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face. The solution contains a powerful blend of acids and vitamins that work together to smooth the skin’s texture. As the peel exfoliates away damaged outer layers of skin, increased cell turnover in the epidermis tightens pores and improves tone and elasticity. Collagen production ramps up in the weeks following the peel, plumping up crepey skin and softening the look of wrinkles. Fine surface lines around the eyes, mouth, and forehead become less noticeable as skin regeneration occurs at an accelerated pace. Patients love the anti-aging effects of the VI peel because it delivers visible improvements to stubborn wrinkles and creases, restoring a rejuvenated, glowing appearance. This procedure erases years off the skin, turning back the clock.
