Exfoliate & Rejuvenate
Your Skin

Chemical peels are skincare procedures that improve the appearance and texture of the skin by removing damaged outer layers. During a chemical peel, a solution is applied to the face, which causes the top layers of skin to peel off over time. This process reveals smoother, healthier skin beneath, reducing the appearance of imperfections like wrinkles, acne scars, and sun damage. Chemical peels come in various strengths and types, with options like VI peels, no-downtime ZO peels, deep ZO peels, and BioRePeelCl3 FND to cater to individual skin needs.

Chemical Peels Treat:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage and pigmentation issues
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Age spots and freckles
  • Melasma and hyperpigmentation
  • Enlarged pores

How Chemical Peels Work

Chemical peels work by applying a chemical solution to the skin’s surface, which causes controlled damage to the outermost layer. This process triggers the body’s natural wound healing response, leading to the removal of damaged skin cells and the stimulation of collagen production.

Different peels use varying types and concentrations of acids, like glycolic, salicylic, or trichloroacetic acid, to target specific skin issues. As the skin regenerates, it becomes smoother, firmer, and more evenly toned, improving overall skin texture and appearance.

Benefits of Chemical Peels:

  • Improved skin texture and smoothness
  • Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Minimized appearance of acne scars
  • Enhanced skin tone and evenness
  • Enhanced collagen production
  • Fresh, rejuvenated skin
  • Effective treatment for various skin concerns
  • Customizable according to your skin type
  • Minimal side effects and little to no downtime

Your Chemical Peel Options

Vi Peel Precision Plus

The Vi Peel Precision Plus is a specialized chemical peel that targets specific skin concerns, such as hyperpigmentation, melasma, and sunspots. This medium-depth peel suppresses melanogenesis (the production of melanin) and promotes cellular turnover, helping you achieve a brighter, more radiant complexion in 7 days.

Vi Peel Purify (With Precision Plus)

The Vi Peel Purify with Precision Plus is formulated to combat acne-prone skin and improve overall complexion. This peel clears away dead skin cells and regulates oil production to reduce acne breakouts. It can also regulate melanin production to address hyperpigmentation issues and stubborn post-acne scars, helping you achieve clearer and smoother skin.

Vi Peel Purify

The Vi Peel Purify is a powerful treatment designed to effectively tackle acne and blemish-prone skin. It sloughs away dead skin cells, unclogs pores, regulates excessive oil production, and eliminates p. acnes bacteria, thus addressing the root causes of acne breakouts. It promotes a clearer complexion, making it an ideal choice for individuals struggling with acne.

Vi Peel Advanced

The Vi Peel Advanced is an innovative peel that goes beyond the original Vi Peel to target advanced signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. This formula is suitable for more mature clients because it stimulates collagen production to increase cellular turnover and promote a more youthful, radiant complexion.

Vi Peel Original

The Vi Peel Original is a versatile chemical peel suitable for various skin types and concerns. It exfoliates the skin, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and enhances overall skin texture and tone, leaving you with a refreshed and more youthful look. It’s also suitable for sensitive skin and individuals with early signs of aging, such as those in their 20s.

Vi Peel Body

The Vi Peel Body extends the benefits of chemical peels to the body, effectively addressing issues such as uneven skin tone, sun damage, and signs of aging on the arms, chest, back, and legs. It can also help with scars from acne, surgeries, and injuries. This treatment enables you to achieve smoother and more even skin on various body areas.

The ZO Stimulator Peel

The ZO Stimulator Peel is popularly known as a “lunchtime” or “no downtime” peel because it uses alpha hydroxy acids to stimulate cellular turnover and collagen production without harsh side effects or downtime. It reduces fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin texture, tone, and clarity without significant downtime.

The 3-Step Deep ZO Peel

The 3-Step Deep ZO Peel is a moderate-depth peel that contains three essential chemicals: salicylic acid, lactic acid, and trichloracetic acid (TCA). It causes the exfoliation of the topmost layers of skin and promotes cellular turnover to correct numerous concerns, including melasma, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, acne, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

BioRePeelCl3 FND

BioRePeelCI3 FND is a peel consisting of six acids: TCA (35%), lactobionic acid, salicylic acid, tartaric acid, citric acid, and aminobutyric acid (GABA). It also contains four amino acids (glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, and arginine) and vitamins C and B2. These ingredients promote exfoliation and increase overall cellular turnover and collagen and elastin production.

What can I expect during a chemical peel procedure?

During a chemical peel, a solution is applied to the cleansed skin. You may experience a tingling or burning sensation that lasts a few minutes.
