VI Peel

What is a VI Peel?

The VI Peel is a medium-depth, multi-layered chemical peel designed to address various skin concerns. It utilizes a proprietary blend of powerful ingredients, including:

  • Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA): This acid penetrates the middle layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and reducing signs of aging.
  • Salicylic Acid: A beta hydroxy acid that exfoliates the top layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells and unclogging pores. This helps to improve acne and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
  • Phenol: This ingredient, present in a low concentration in the VI Peel, helps target deeper skin concerns like hyperpigmentation and sun damage.

VI Peels are formulated for all skin types and can be customized based on your individual needs and desired results.

Benefits of VI Peel: How It Transforms Your Skin


VI Peels offer a multitude of benefits for achieving a healthy, radiant complexion. Here’s how this advanced treatment can transform your skin:

  • Reduces Signs of Aging: Fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone are diminished as the VI Peel stimulates collagen production and promotes cell turnover.
  • Improves Skin Texture: The peel removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores, resulting in a smoother, more refined texture.
  • Minimizes Acne Breakouts: VI Peels help control acne by reducing excess oil production and unclogging pores, leaving you with clearer skin.
  • Fades Hyperpigmentation: Sun damage, age spots, and other forms of hyperpigmentation can be lightened or eliminated with VI Peel treatments.
  • Brightens and Evens Skin Tone: By removing the top layer of pigmented skin cells, VI Peels reveal a brighter, more even complexion.
  • Minimizes Enlarged Pores: The exfoliating properties of the peel help to shrink the appearance of enlarged pores.

How Does a VI Peel Treatment Work?

VI Peel treatments are a relatively quick and in-office procedure. Here’s a breakdown of what to expect during your visit:

  1. Consultation: During your initial consultation, a board-certified dermatologist will discuss your skin concerns, desired outcomes, and medical history. They will assess your skin type and determine if a VI Peel is the right treatment for you.
  2. Treatment Preparation: Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, oil, or debris.
  3. VI Peel Application: The VI Peel solution is applied in a controlled manner, typically in two layers. You may experience a slight tingling or burning sensation during application, which is temporary.
  4. Post-Peel Care: After the peel has been set for a specific time, you will be able to wash it off. Detailed aftercare instructions will be provided by your dermatologist.

VI Peel Results: What to Expect After Treatment

While the VI Peel itself is a relatively quick in-office procedure, the most visible results will appear in the days following your treatment. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Peeling and Flaking: This is a normal part of the process as the outermost layer of your skin sheds to reveal the renewed layer underneath. Peeling typically starts within 3 days and can last up to a week.
  • Temporary Redness and Tightness: Your skin may feel slightly red and tight after the peel, similar to a mild sunburn. This usually subsides within a few days.
  • Brighter, Smoother Skin: As the peeling subsides, you’ll start to see the true transformation. Your skin will feel smoother, with a noticeable improvement in texture and tone.
  • Gradual Improvement: While significant results are evident within a week, VI Peel’s benefits continue to develop over time. Collagen production will be stimulated, leading to ongoing improvements in fine lines and wrinkles.

Essential VI Peel Aftercare: Tips for Best Results

Following proper aftercare instructions is crucial for achieving optimal results and minimizing potential side effects. Here are some key tips:

  • Moisturize Diligently: Use a gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer several times a day to keep your skin hydrated and promote healing.
  • Sunscreen is Essential: Sun exposure can worsen pigmentation issues. Apply a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher sunscreen daily, even on cloudy days.
  • Avoid Harsh Products: Steer clear of harsh cleansers, exfoliating scrubs, and irritating skincare products for at least a week after your VI Peel.
  • Minimize Sun Exposure: Limit sun exposure and wear protective clothing, such as hats and sunglasses, when outdoors.
  • Gentle Cleansing: Wash your face with lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser as instructed by your dermatologist.

How Often Should You Get a VI Peel?

The frequency of VI Peel treatments depends on your skin concerns and desired results. Typically, VI Peels can be repeated every 4-6 weeks to maintain optimal results. However, your dermatologist will recommend a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs. Factors that may influence treatment frequency include:

  • The severity of Skin Concerns: For deeper concerns like significant sun damage or acne scarring, more frequent peels may be initially recommended, followed by maintenance peels spaced further apart.
  • Skin Type: Individuals with more sensitive skin may require a longer recovery time and may benefit from less frequent peels.
  • Desired Results: If you’re seeking subtle improvements, a single VI Peel may suffice. For more dramatic results, a series of peels may be recommended.

During your consultation, your dermatologist will discuss the recommended frequency for achieving your desired outcome.

My experience at Ayana has been nothing short of amazing! I came to Dr. Levi for hair loss, and she took the time to really listen to me and discussed all treatment options with me in detail. Not only do I feel cared for by everyone at the office, but I have also seen significant improvement in my hair growth using Dr. Levi's medical advice and treatment approach. Go to Ayana if you want results and the best care in South FL!

Frequently asked questions

Yes, VI Peel treatments are effective in reducing both acne and the appearance of acne scars by exfoliating the skin and promoting cell turnover, leading to clearer and smoother skin over time.

VI Peel results can last for several months with proper skincare practices, including consistent sunscreen use. To maintain optimal results, repeat treatments may be recommended every 4-6 weeks, as discussed with your dermatologist during your consultation.

It is recommended to wait until after the peeling process has been completed, typically around 4-7 days, before applying makeup. This ensures that the skin is sufficiently healed to prevent irritation and achieve optimal results.
