A V.I. Peel is a skin treatment used to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, chest, hands or other areas. As a medical-grade chemical peel, the VI Peel is an effective treatment to improve several skin conditions and issues including acne, uneven skin texture, uneven tone, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, sagging skin, age and sun spots, enlarged pores and hyperpigmentation. The VI Peel also provides a more youthful look by brightening the overall appearance of the skin and improving collagen production. The V.I. Peel, like some other chemical peels, can also assist in removing precancerous cells. Using a chemical solution, V.I. Peels remove the upper layers of skin to allow the growth of fresh new skin that is smoother and more youthful in appearance, while also increasing collagen production. The V.I. Peel contains a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types. This chemical exfoliation treatment delivers dramatic results with virtually no discomfort, no skin preparation and little social downtime. Patients who choose this treatment notice a softening of lines and wrinkles, clearing of acne, and a reduction or elimination of acne scars. V.I. Peel will also stimulate the production of collagen for firmer and more youthful skin.

The V.I. Peel
The Oaks at Goodwood Medical Spa believes the V.I. Peel is one of the finest chemical peels you will ever experience. The unique blend of ingredients produces powerful results with no pain, no skin preparation, and very little downtime, the VI Peel will:
- Improve the tone, texture and clarity of your skin
- Reduce or eliminate actinic keratoses, age spots, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation, including melasma
- Soften lines and wrinkles
- Clear acne skin conditions, reduce or eliminate acne scars
- Stimulate the production of collagen for firmer, more youthful skin
The VI Precision Peel, is the first Next Generation Aesthetic peel that is painless, yet produces dramatic visible results in just days with little downtime. The VI Peel consists of a synergistic blend of five acids that no other peel offers:
- TCA – Trichloroacetic Acid for penetration, deep scar healing, and collagen stimulation
- Retinoic Acid – An acid derived from vitamin A to combat wrinkles
- Salicylic Acid – This beta hydroxyl acid (BHA) is a strong exfoliant
- Phenol – A powerful acid with antiseptic and anesthetic properties that aids in skin penetration
- Vitamin C – Ascorbic acid has antioxidant and mild exfoliation properties
The peel is applied by a medical aesthetician to the face and neck. During the application of the peel, you may feel a tingle or slight stinging sensation that last for about five seconds. The peel numbs the skin on the first pass and then the rest of the peel is applied until the entire bottle is used and your skin is monitored as you are given take home instructions.
The skin will appear slightly tan due to you going home with the VI Peel on your face; follow all directions given by your aesthetician. On the first and second days your skin may feel slightly tight and any pigmented areas might appear slightly darker. The third day, you should begin to peel; first signs of peeling usually begin around the mouth. By the sixth or seventh day, the peeling should be complete and the results are dramatic. Remember never to peel the skin yourself and always allow the skin to fall naturally when washing your face to prevent scaring.
The VI Peel is safe for all skin types including, African American, Asian, and Latin skin. Dr. Kalil originally formulated the VI Peel for his fifteen year old daughter, an acne sufferer. The peel is excellent for both adult and adolescent acne. We have effectively peeled acne patients as young as twelve years old results are quick and impressive parents just need to sign a consent form. Combined with a skin regimen, almost all acne cases can be successfully managed.
