The VI Peel consists of 5 custom blended peels. Depending on your concerns, your Esthetician will choose the correct formula for you to achieve your desired skincare goals. All formulations can be performed on all skin types and tones safely.
THE VI PEEL CONTAINS THE FOLLOWING INGREDIENTS:
- Retinoic Acid - This powerhouse acid penetrates the skin inhibiting melanin production and increasing cell turnover.
- Trichloroacetic Acid - TCA then targets signs of aging by boosting collagen and exfoliating the skin.
- Salicylic Acid - Prevents inflammation by killing bacteria and exfoliating the inside walls of pores.
- Phenol - This is the secret weapon that numbs the skin allowing for a painless application.
- Ascorbic Acid - A powerful antioxidant that reverses free radical damage, evens skin tone and prevents future damage.

COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS

By getting to the “root” of these issues, the VI Peel is a more successful treatment for aging, hyperpigmentation and melasma that superficial chemical peels.
