The advantage of repeated light chemical peeling is minimal “down time” from work or other activities. Repeated chemical peeling is a program of skin rejuvenation which aims to improve the skin over time rather than with one procedure. Perfect for the face, chest, and back.

What happens during a VI Peel?
The VI Peel treatment is very convenient as it is performed in the clinic and requires no pre-treatment.
After the skin is cleaned, the VI Peel will be applied topically to your skin. Patients typically experience a warm, tingly sensation that quickly subsides. The procedure takes only 20 to 30 minutes, but patients must leave the peel on the skin for five hours following the appointment.
With VI Peel there is little or no downtime. Peeling lasts 2 to 3 days and is easily managed with the post-peel kit that is included with the peel. For a week or two following the peel it’s best to avoid exfoliating products like glycolic acid and retinols. Avoid direct and prolonged exposure to the sun. As well, resist the temptation of pulling your peeling skin off – it’s important that you let it peel naturally.
Once your skin has completely recovered and is finished peeling, you will notice a visible improvement in your complexion. Your skin’s appearance should continue to improve for the next 4 to 6 weeks, becoming firmer, clearer, smoother, healthier, and more youthful looking.
The best candidates for a VI Peel
Anyone seeking to improve their skin’s tone and reduce blemishes may be a candidate for a VI Peel. The VI peel has been tested and used on individuals of a variety of skin tones, including Asian, African-American, and Latino skin types, which traditionally have not always responded positively to chemical peel treatments. The VI peel was originally developed as a treatment for acne and acne scarring and is still extremely successful at treating this sometimes frustrating condition in individuals as young as 12-years-old.
