What is Vi
Peel? The Vi Peel is designed for anyone who wants
younger looking healthier skin. The Vi Peel is designed to improve acne,
tone, texture, reduce &/ or eliminate age spots, freckles and hyper-pigmentation
(including melasma). Pore size will
appear to be reduced and fine lines and wrinkles will be softened. As all of our peels, the Vi Peel will
stimulate the production of collagen and elastin for firmer skin. The VI Peel consists of a synergistic blend of five acids
that no other peel offers:
- TCA - Trichloroacetic Acid for penetration, deep
scar healing; stimulates collagen growth;
- Retin-A - acid derived from vitamin A to combat
- Salicylic Acid - this beta hydroxy acid (BHA) is an exfoliant;
- Phenol - has antiseptic and anesthetic properties;
aids in skin penetration;
- Vitamin C - ascorbic acid has antioxidant and mild
- The * Precision Booster
is the Vi Peel at a higher concentration, for a treatment that is about
25% stronger than the Vi Peel alone.
The Precision booster is an excellent addition for treating
stubborn hyperpigmentation including melasma, actinic keratoses and age

What to expect during the Vi Peel:
Your skin will be cleansed and dried.
Then the solution will be applied on face, neck, and/or décolleté and
hands. It is virtually
discomfort free. Clients typically experience a warm, tingly sensation that
quickly subsides. After application, you will be given a TAKE
HOME KIT along with specific instructions to help maximize the benefits of your
Vi Peel by protecting and nourishing the skin post peel.
What to expect after the Vi Peel: You
will also receive a take home kit along with specific instructions. It is essential to follow the instructions
given to maximize the benefits of the Vi Peel.
Expect light peeling to occur 2 to 5 days after the peel for an
approximate 3 day period. Your result will be improved texture, and a
more radiant, youthful appearance. Since
your skin will be highly sensitive to the sun following the Vi Peel, an SPF of
30 + must be worn daily.
What is the maintenance?
We will advise you according to the severity of the issue being
addressed. At first the Vi Peel may be
recommended every 3 months until you reach your optimum goal. To amplify
and maintain the effects of the Vi peel between treatments, it is HIGHLY
recommended to continue using the HQRA treatment cream nightly after 2-3 weeks of
