VI Chemical Peel
Available In Pittsburgh, PA or Columbus, OH  

The V.I.Peel™ chemical peel is our strongest light chemical peel, providing noticeable improvement after just one chemical peel or more dramatic results when performed in a series of facial peels.

After a series of three V.I. Peel chemical peels, results are comparable to those obtained from a medium chemical or a 30% TCA chemical peel but without the downtime.

Available in both Pittsburgh, PA and Columbus, chemical peels offer significant improvement to skin conditions including age spots, freckles, fine lines and wrinkles when performed in a series of treatments.

When performed as a single treatment, the V.I. Peel improves the tone, texture and clarity of the skin.

Treatment Information

V.I. Peel Chemical Peel Procedure

The V.I. Peel chemical peel is a light chemical peel that uses a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types. The V.I. Peel provides significant improvement to sun-damaged skin. Results can be seen in about a week with virtually no pain, and little to no downtime.

The V.I. Peel chemical peel:

  • Improves the tone, texture and clarity of the skin
  • Reduces age spots, freckles and hyperpigmentation
  • Softens the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Clarifies acne outbreaks and improves acne scars
  • Stimulates new collagen production
  • Tightens and tones the skin

A few days after a V.I. Peel chemical peel, the skin will begin to turn bronze and feel tight. Skin peeling will continue for five to seven days. Once the old skin has exfoliated, the new skin will appear brighter, with a more youthful glow.

Most people see dramatic improvement after just one V.I. Peel chemical peel. However, skin that is severely damaged will benefit from a series of chemical peels performed once a month for at least three months. To maintain the results, it is recommended that a maintenance peel be performed every 6 to 12 months.

V.I. Chemical Peel Alternative Treatments

Alternative chemical peel treatments that remove damaged epidermal layers and offer similar results to a strong light chemical peel include:

Aesthetic Facial Peel gives new life to dull, sun-damaged complexions by deeply exfoliating the epidermal layers, and smoothing and tightening the skin while fading brown spots and diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.

Power Peel Microdermabrasion is the ultimate advancement in deep exfoliation and skin conditioning. Deeply exfoliating the skin to remove dull, dry skin cells, Power Peel Microdermabrasions are the ideal treatment to have just a few days before a special event, for a softer, radiant, more youthful complexion.

Fraxel® Laser Skin Resurfacing improves skin tone, texture, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation without the downtime typically associated with ablative skin resurfacing treatments.

Microdermabrasion combines powerful exfoliation and skin resurfacing with potent topical solutions to leave the skin looking brighter, smoother and rejuvenated after just one visit.

Medlite® C6 Skin Rejuvenation delivers a refreshed, more youthful appearance by simultaneously treating multiple skin conditions and by boosting the natural collagen production deep within the dermis.

Chemical Peels use a precise chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin, revealing a bright, healthy, more vibrant complexion. Chemical peels can dramatically improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, skin tone and texture.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any discomfort associated with the V.I. Peel chemical peel?
During a V.I. chemical peel, most people feel mild to moderate heat while the chemical peel solution is applied. After about 30 seconds the skin becomes desensitized to the solution so additional applications are not as uncomfortable. During the treatment, however, we routinely use a hand held fan to quickly cool the skin and diminish any discomfort.
Can the V.I. Peel be performed on other areas of the body?
Yes. The V.I. chemical peel formula for the body is a stronger variation of the V.I. Peel and is specifically designed to treat: • Décolletage • Chest • Back • Hands • Arms The V.I. Peel chemical peel is especially effective in removing sunspots from the hands and chest and eliminating the wrinkles associated with sun damage on the décolletage.
Is there a certain time of year I should consider having the V.I. Peel?
The V.I. Peel can be performed any time of year. However, your skin will be more sensitive to sun exposure following the chemical peel. Pittsburgh clients tend to begin treatments in the fall and winter when direct sun exposure is limited. In Columbus, chemical peels that make the skin more UV sensitive are most often performed in fall and winter as well.
