Everything You Need To Know About A VI Peel
If you’re looking to rejuvenate your skin and achieve a more youthful, radiant complexion, you may have heard of VI Peel. It is a medical-grade chemical peel that is a popular treatment for a variety of skin concerns, including acne, sun damage and signs of aging. What is a chemical VI peel and is it right for you? In this article, we’ll cover everything you need to know about VI Peel, including how it works, who is a good candidate, and what to expect during and after the treatment.
What is a VI Peel?
A VI Peel is a type of chemical peel that uses a blend of powerful ingredients, including trichloroacetic acid (TCA), salicylic acid, phenol, retinoic acid, and vitamin C. These ingredients work together to exfoliate the outer layer of the skin, stimulate collagen production, and promote cellular turnover. A VI Peel is a medical-grade chemical peel that should be performed by a dermatologist or aesthetician who is trained to safely administer this type of treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate for a VI Peel?
The best candidate for a VI Peel is someone who has mild to moderate signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage; acne-prone skin or acne scars; hyperpigmentation, including melasma and sunspots; rough or uneven skin texture; or a dull or lackluster skin tone.
It is important to note that VI Peel may not be suitable for those with certain skin conditions, such as eczema or rosacea, or who have recently undergone certain cosmetic procedures, such as laser resurfacing or microdermabrasion. Additionally, it is important to have realistic expectations about the results of a VI Peel. While the treatment can improve the appearance of the skin, it may not be able to completely eliminate all skin concerns.
When is the Best Time of Year to Get VI Peel?
The best time of year to get a VI Peel depends on various factors, including your skin type, skin concerns, and lifestyle. Generally, it is recommended to get a VI Peel during the fall or winter months when there is less sun exposure and UV radiation. This is because the sun can increase the risk of post-peel complications such as hyperpigmentation, especially if you have a darker skin tone.
Additionally, during the fall and winter months, the humidity levels are typically lower, which can make your skin more susceptible to dryness and irritation after a peel. However, if you have a history of skin sensitivity or are prone to dryness, it may be best to get a VI Peel during the spring or summer months when the humidity levels are higher.
It is also important to avoid excessive sun exposure before and after a VI Peel treatment, regardless of the time of year. It is recommended to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher, and to limit sun exposure as much as possible.

What to Expect During a VI Peel Treatment?
Before the treatment, our experienced aesthetician will thoroughly cleanse your skin and may apply a pre-peel solution to prepare your skin for the treatment. During the treatment, the VI Peel solution will be applied to your face, and you may feel a slight burning or tingling sensation as the solution works to exfoliate your skin. The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to complete.
After the treatment, your skin may be red, swollen, and slightly peeling for a few days. It is important to avoid picking or scratching at the peeling skin, as this can increase the risk of scarring or infection. Your skincare professional will provide specific post-treatment instructions, including how to care for your skin and what products to use to get the best results from your treatment.
