What is the VI Peel?
Featured in publications such as Vogue, Marie Claire, and Brides, the VI Peel is a medium-strength chemical peel that addresses a host of skin concerns from rough texture to fine lines, age spots, large pores, scarring, and sun damage with less downtime than more aggressive peels. The VI Peel instigates a natural skin renewal process, causing the damaged skin to slough off and reveal the smooth, radiant skin beneath.
What ingredients are in the VI Peel?
The secret behind the VI Peel’s efficacy is in its ingredients. The peel contains a synergistic blend of actives such as salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid (TCA), retinoic acid, vitamin C, and phenol that can be customized to your skin type.

What are the benefits of the VI Peel?
The VI Peel is an excellent introductory peel for nearly all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is an ideal option for busy individuals who can’t afford the downtime associated with more aggressive skin peels. Most patients see results in as little as a week.
Am I a good candidate for the VI Peel?
Anyone who wants to improve their skin texture, brightness, and clarity may be considered for the VI Peel. Unlike some other types of peels, the formulation is safe for all skin types and tones—even sensitive skin and dark complexions.
There are a few situations when patients should not have a skin peel. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding may not be the best candidates. If you have an active skin infection, broken skin, or sores, this may delay the start of your treatment.
Your VI Peel Procedure
First, your provider at Dina Eliopoulos MD Center for Plastic Surgery will thoroughly cleanse your skin to ensure even application of the peel. Next, she will apply the VI Peel solution in layers using a sterile applicator. As the peel penetrates your skin, you may experience tingling or stinging that lasts a few seconds. Most patients find any discomfort is mild and temporary.
After Your VI Peel
VI Peel Recovery
Recovering from a VI Peel is relatively quick and easy. Initialy your skin may feel slightly dry, tight, or appear flushed.
Your skin should begin to peel a few days after your treatment, indicating the peel is working. Peeling generally lasts seven days, but may persist for longer. Do not pick at your skin as it sheds. This can cause an infection or scarring. For the best results, allow your skin to slough naturally.
The fresh, new layer of skin is more prone to sunburn and sensitivity. It is imperative to limit sun exposure, wear sunblock, and avoid aggressive skincare products such as retinoids, AHAs, and exfoliants during the healing period.
