Chemical Peels

VI peels penetrate the epidermis, or the skin’s middle layer. They also exfoliate the skin and restore its radiance by removing dead and damaged cells. A VI Peel triggers a protein reaction, which causes your body to increase its synthesis of naturally occurring substances that promote healthy skin growth.

The VI Peel treatment can address wrinkles and fine lines, skin pigmentation, acne, and acne scarring.

VI Peels are considered safe for all skin tones and ethnicities.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • We have 6 different VI Peel formulas (5 for the face and 1 for the body) that target your unique skin issues and goals. Your healthcare provider can recommend the peel that is right for you.

  • Yes! ALL VI Peel treatments are safe and effective for ALL skin tones. Inclusivity is central to our brand and mission, and all Vitality Institute products are created for and with skin of color in mind.

  • Everyone’s skin is a little different, and the number of peels needed for desired results varies from person to person, and from skin condition to skin condition. While just a single peel will achieve significant skin rejuvenation (think less pigment, smoother skin texture, and brighter, glowier skin overall), in general, we recommend a series of 3-6 peels for optimal results.

  • In general, you can expect to start peeling on or around day three and peel for about three to four days afterward. Each person’s peeling experience is a little different, and some may peel for more or fewer days, depending on the condition of the skin. If this is your first VI Peel, it’s also normal to peel for a longer period of time.

  • There are many reasons why you may not see the peeling. Even if you can’t see something with the naked eye, the VI Peel is still working for you and exfoliating at the cellular level to brighten and improve your skin’s appearance.

  • Do not pull back on the skin that is shedding. It is recommended to use a clean, small cuticle scissor to trim the exfoliating skin. You can also wash the face very gently to help remove the hanging skin but be sure to not rub excessively. If washing the face multiple times a day, be sure to add moisture back to the skin by applying the Post Treatment Repair Cream (or Aquaphor if very dry). Don’t forget to use the SPF!
