The Vi Peel is a controlled TCA Peel for the face and the body and is recommended to treat hyperpigmentation (brown spots), fine lines and wrinkles, scaring, uneven texture, rosacea, and to produce new collagen. This peel is a quick lunchtime procedure (about 30 minutes) and offers noticeable results with just 1 treatment. The Vi Peel is applied to the skin and left on the skin when you leave the spa. This allows the peel to penetrate into the skin and neutralize over time. Often times a Vi Peel is done in combination with a Dermaplane to enhance the penetration of the peel.
How should I prepare for my treatment?
If you are in the sun for a prolonged period of time, use a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher and liberally reapply it throughout the day in all of your treatment areas that are exposed. Avoid exfoliating products for 48 hours before your treatment. If you are unsure about any products you are using please contact our office.
How should I expect to feel after my treatment?
Your skin may be red immediately after your treatment and should dissipate within the first few hours after your treatment. You will leave the office with the peel on your face. This will allow the peel solution to neutralize over the next 4 hours. You can expect peeling approximately 48 hours after your treatment with light flaking a few days after that. Every client is different. Any additional post care that pertains to you will be given to you at the time of your appointment.
Makeup can be worn 4 hours after the procedure. We recommend 2-4 Vi Peels a year to achieve optimal results along with proper at home skin care.
