Request An Appointment

VIPEEL BODY  First of its kind chemical peel specifically for your body

Our face often gets the most attention when it comes to skincare. We slather on creams, serums, and other products to delay the signs of aging or address skin concerns, including acne, dark spots, scarring, and dullness. The rest of the body is often overlooked, even though it is also affected by the same skin dilemmas. 

A medical-grade chemical peel like the VI Peel can improve or address these concerns. What it does is remove the skin’s damaged layers and stimulate the production of new skin cells. It is commonly used on the face, neck, and chest, but it now comes with a solution specifically designed for the body: VI Peel Body.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FACIAL PEEL AND A BODY PEEL

Body peels are much like facial peels, but are stronger and penetrate deeper. This is because the skin on the body isn’t as thin or delicate as that on your face. It only means that it can take on higher strength formulas with higher percentages of active ingredients

Facial peels, meanwhile, are less powerful, mainly because they are intended on delicate and sensitive areas. They are commonly used on the face and neck areas and mostly penetrate the epidermis or the top layer. It causes the skin to peel off to reveal a healthier and more radiant complexion.

INTRODUCING VI PEEL BODY

VI Peel Body is a professional-grade chemical peel specifically designed for addressing body skin concerns. It is developed by the makers of VI Peel to improve your body skin treatments. VI Peel Body is safe for all skin types, tones, and textures, and can penetrate deeper (epidermis) to create true change or results.

 

HOW IT WORKS

First-of-its-kind, non-invasive, and pain-free. VI Peel Body treatments stimulate anti-aging collagen and increase cellular turnover. It helps address troubled areas to reveal smoother, more radiant skin in just one treatment.

WHY IT WORKS

The skin on the body is 2-3 times as thick as the skin on the face. VI Peel has created a unique proprietary ingredient complex with potent actives that go beyond the reach of traditional topical alone.

WORKS IN 4 UNIQUE WAYS:

  • Exfoliates dead surface cells instantly (Glycolic Acid)
  • Hydrates and lightens pigment as it firms (Lactic Acid)
  • Penetrates to target tenure, pigment, acne, and wrinkles (Trichloroacetic Acid)
  • Suppresses pigment and reduces oil production (Mandelic Acid)

WHY WOULD I GET A BODY TARGETED BODY PEEL:

Thicker skin – The skin on the body is not as delicate as the skin on the face; it is two to three times thicker. This only means that it isn’t ideal to reuse a traditional facial peel that only penetrates the skin’s outermost layer. It is likely to have a less penetration effect on certain areas of the body.

 

To create true corrective change on the skin of the body – The natural skin cell turnover cycle of the face and body is different. It takes 28 days for the face and about 70 days for the body. So, to create visible changes and results, the chemical peel for the body needs to penetrate the dermis and speed up the peeling process. It also must work on all skin types and tones.

During the 7-10 days post-peel:

  1. Use the Retinoic Serum morning and night until flaking or peeling begins, then immediately discontinue use.
  2. Use the Post Treatment Repair Cream any time skin feels dry or itchy.
  3. Avoid hot water on the treated area. Lukewarm water is best.
  4. When cleansing the area, use only your fingertips and avoid washcloths, loofahs, or anything abrasive.
  5. Cleanse the skin using a gentle cleanser with no fragrance or active ingredients (VI Derm Gentle Purifying Cleanser, Dove, Cetaphil, etc.).
  6. Avoid direct sun exposure on treated areas.
  7. Use SPF 50+ on treated areas when outdoors, including while driving.

Flaking/Peeling typically begins 4-7 days after the peel is applied but can be longer. When this begins, remembering the following:

  • Skin will feel tight or dry right before it peels.
  • Do not pick, pull, or roll the skin as this could lead to significant irritation and possible hyperpigmentation and scarring.
  • Peeling may look like light flaking, sheet peeling, or may be barely visible to the naked eye.
  • Flaking/peeling may last 3-7 days and varies from person to person. If any products in your Patient Aftercare Kit sting or irritate beyond your tolerance, stop and reach out to us.

SPECIAL ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SPECIFIC CONDITIONS AND BODY AREAS

Keratosis Pilaris:

  1. Keep skin moisturized with Post Treatment Repair Cream for the first 7-10 days.
  2. Use warm water and limit bath time, as hot water and long showers or baths remove oils from the skin. Limit bath or shower time to about 10 minutes or less. Use warm, not hot, water.
  3. Be gentle to the skin. Avoid harsh, drying soaps. Vigorous scrubbing or removal of hair follicle plugs may irritate the skin and aggravate the condition. After washing or bathing, gently pat or blot the skin with a towel so that some moisture remains.
  4. Maintain results with a Retinoic Serum to help loosen and remove dead skin cells. Put this product on before moisturizer.
  5. For Fitzpatrick 4, 5, and 6 skin types, a pigment suppressing agent should also be included in the home treatment regimen. A hydroquinone product safely and effectively suppresses excessive pigment..
  6. A humidifier may help, as low humidity dries out the skin. A portable home humidifier or one attached to your furnace will add moisture to the air inside your home.
