In the past, chemical peels were thought of as being harsh, painful treatments that meant that patients had to endure long recovery periods before they could experience the beautiful, healthy skin underneath. However, thanks to innovations in the substances and techniques used, modern chemical peels offer patients a safe, effective and far more comfortable way of rejuvenating their facial skin. One of the leading peels available is known as the VI Peel®.
What is the VI Peel®?
The VI Peel® is a gentle yet highly successful form of chemical peels that can be used to improve the appearance of facial skin, even in those areas where the skin is thinner and particularly delicate. In addition to removing the damaged, top layer of skin, the VI Peel® also stimulates the natural production of collagen and elastin – two substances which are vital for healthy skin growth. Our body’s ability to produce these fades as we become older, so by re-stimulating their production, we can ensure that new skin growth is healthier, stronger, supple and more youthful in appearance.
What ingredients are used in a VI Peel®?
The VI Peel® uses a unique combination of safe and highly effective ingredients including:
Trichloroacetic Acid, to stimulate collagen and smooth scars and wrinkles
Retin-A, to soften fine lines and mild to moderate wrinkles.
Salicylic Acid, an anti-inflammatory that exfoliates the tissue.
Vitamin C, an antioxidant that can brighten skin.
Phenol, which can treat and eliminate deep lines and folds.

There are a range of different VI Peel® products available and your cosmetic specialist will be able to tell you which type of VI Peel® is most appropriate to make the skin improvements that you are looking for. The VI Peel® products that you can choose from include:

What are the benefits of choosing VI Peel® chemical peels?
The VI Peel® is considered superior to many other types of chemical peel due to the unique benefits it can offer to patients.
The prospect of pain is something that puts many people off of cosmetic treatments, and chemical peels have a particularly bad reputation for causing discomfort. Nevertheless, the VI Peel® is virtually painless with patients reporting that the only sensation that they feel is a tingling much like pins and needles.
Suitable for all skin types
The VI Peel® is one of the gentlest types of chemical peel currently available and it can be used on virtually all skin types and colors, and on areas of skin that are thin or sensitive.
Unlike many chemical peels, there is absolutely no downtime required when you opt for a VI Peel®. You will be able to return to work, the school run or whatever other activities you have planned for the day without needing to worry about your appearance. You can even use moisturizer during the healing process, although you will be asked to refrain from wearing cosmetics during the ‘peeling’ days which only last for three or four days and start approximately 72 hours after your procedure.
Improved skin appearance
It takes around seven days to see the full effects of your VI Peel® and when you do, you will find that your skin looks healthier, softer and more radiant than before. Areas of hyperpigmentation and sun damage will be significantly improved if not eliminated entirely, and you will enjoy a more youthful appearance.
Improved skin texture
In addition to improving the appearance of your skin, VI Peel® also improves the texture, smoothening our areas that may have seemed rough or scarred. Again, this helps skin to look healthier and younger than before.
Improved confidence and self-esteem
When you look fantastic, you feel fantastic, and patients who have received a VI Peel® state that the results of the treatment have enabled them to feel far happier with the appearance, boosting their confidence and self-esteem.
