What is VIPeel?

VIPeel is a medium-depth chemical peel. When applied, it penetrates the top layer of skin, known as the epidermis. VIPeel exfoliates the skin and stimulates the product of new proteins, including collagen. The chemical peel provides a wide range of skin benefits, including:

  • Reduced signs of aging
  • Improved skin texture
  • Treatment for discoloration and other pigment issues

Because VIPeel is a medium-depth chemical peel, it isn't effective in treating sagging skin or deep wrinkles.

What's great about VIPeel is that it's effective yet gentle enough to be used on the face, eyelids, chest, hands, and back. In just a matter of days, you can feel amazing in your skin.

Quick facts

  1. Minimizes the appearance of common skin conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots, discoloration, acne scars, and more.
  2. Suitable for all skin types and tones.
  3. Can be used to treat acne by reducing inflammation, killing bacteria, and reducing oil production.
  4. Non-invasive and generally well tolerated. Side effects are rare and relatively minor.
  5. The procedure takes just 30 minutes and is done on an outpatient basis.
  6. You’ll see results in a matter of days!

How it works

VIPeel contains a blend of exfoliating ingredients, including salicylic acid, trichloroacetic acid, phenol, vitamin C, and tretinoin. Together, these ingredients break down the top layer of skin cells.

When the epidermis is broken down, it stimulates the body's natural healing process. This causes the production of collagen and elastin, two key proteins that give your skin elasticity and structure.

What to expect

Because VIPeel is an outpatient procedure, you can go home and resume most of your daily activities. Most patients experience little to no side effects, with the most common being a tingling sensation.

So, what can you expect during a VIPeel treatment? Most sessions take just 30 minutes. Here’s how treatment works:

  1. Your skin is cleansed to remove dirt, oil, and other debris.
  2. The VIPeel solution is applied to the treatment area in two layers.
  3. After the first layer is applied, you may experience tingling or numbness.
  4. When the second layer is applied, your skin will turn white or “frost.”
  5. After the peel is on your skin for 4-6 hours, you’ll wash it off.
  6. Your skin will begin to peel about 3 days after the procedure.

After washing the peel off using mild cleanser and water, it's important to apply the post peel protectant 2-4 times each day. You'll also want to apply moisturizer until your skin is done peeling. Be sure to avoid direct sunlight and to wear sunscreen whenever outdoors.

VIPeel results vary, depending on your skin's condition before the treatment and the skin condition you're treating. Most clients see a reduction in acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, and a more even skin tone and texture.

For continuous and more dramatic results, undergo VIPeel treatments every 4-6 weeks.
