VI Peel

In New Orleans

The VI Peel is a medium-strength, medical-grade chemical peel from VI Aesthetics that minimizes signs of sun damage and aging. This includes fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture and tone.

The peel also targets acne and acne scarring. It works by removing both the epidermis and the uppermost section of the underlying dermal layers, allowing them to be replaced by smoother, brighter skin.

What to Expect From VI Peels

Chemical peels like VI Peels can treat various concerns, including fine lines, large pores, dullness, hyperpigmentation, active breakouts, and acne scars.

You’ll see results as soon as the skin stops peeling, which is about a week after your treatment.

The VI peel includes phenol, which helps to numb the skin and make the treatment more tolerable. It can be used anywhere on the body, including the neck, chest, and hands.

For the week leading up to your treatment, you’ll be asked to stop using prescription retinoids as well as any products that contain alpha-hydroxy acids, like glycolic acid; beta-hydroxy acids, like salicylic acid; or benzoyl peroxide.

Immediately after your peel, your skin will look darker as the pigmentation is brought to the surface of the skin.

By days two and three, your skin will not have peeled yet. By day four, you should begin to have peeling around the mouth, and the peeling will continue to move towards the outer perimeter of the face over the next three to four days.

It is extremely important to follow your provider’s recovery guidelines closely. We recommend not doing any physical exercise that will make you sweat for at least three to four days.

We carry three different versions of the VI peel. VI original peel, VI purify, and VI Precision Plus. The original peel is $275 and the other two are $300.

We schedule chemical peel appointments Monday-Friday.

VI Peel Benefits

VI Peel benefits include reducing age spots, freckles, hyperpigmentation, and melasma. The treatment also softens fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin texture and clarity.

VI Peel Treatment Areas

VI Peel is versatile and suitable for treating the face, neck, chest, arms, and back. This makes VI Peel a preferred choice for those who want to undergo a chemical peel treatment in areas other than the face.

The Best Candidates for VI Peel

The best candidates for VI Peel are individuals who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. VI Peel is also good for treating hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and uneven skin texture.

However, it’s important to note that VI Peels may not be suitable for everyone. To ensure the best outcome, it’s recommended to wait until any active skin infections have cleared completely before undergoing a VI Peel. Additionally, pregnant or breastfeeding women should discuss alternative skin resurfacing treatments with Dr. Weiss.
