Many people have general ideas about what chemical peels are and what they are meant for. Those more intimate with chemical peels know this procedure is a more intense treatment for restoring the skin. Chemical peels are true to their name because – as the name implies – you will peel, a lot. Despite having to deal with heavy peeling, the idea is to bring forth a new layer of skin underneath the old damaged skin. Chemical peels produce healthy, youthful, and beautiful results. If you have had a chemical peel in the past, or are looking for a treatment that produces the same without the intensity of a chemical peel, we have a new treatment for you. The next generation of chemical peels introduces the Vi Peel.


The Vi peel is the latest and greatest thing in skin care. Vi chemical peels are essentially pain free that generate results in as little as seven days. With the use of vitamins and minerals, the peel works its magic while it reducing hyper-pigmentation, acne scarring, wrinkling, and excess sun damage. The peel works months after treatment because of its ability to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Trichloroacetic Acid, Retin-A, Salicylic Acid, Phenol, and Vitamin-C are 5 ingredients used in a Vi peel to optimize skin rejuvenation.


The Vi chemical peel has become the ideal treatment for multiple appealing reasons (pun intended). First, Vi chemical peels are gentle enough for all skin types, ethnicities, and ages. Second, Vi chemical peels just so happen to be one of the most effective peels. Last-but-not-least, Vi chemical peels are very safe; there’s only a slight tingling to the skin upon application. Vi chemical peels require no downtime after treatment and there’s a little peeling that’s easily masked by moisturizer.


Now, we’ll get into what you can expect when you get a Vi chemical peel. Peeling can be expected for three to four days. Time for peeling and flaking may vary from person-to-person. Rejuvenated, radiant, and refreshed skin will start to shine through after seven days, then the full effect of the peel will be visible. Just like other chemical peels, the Vi peel will produce the best results with at least four treatments – usually spaced a solid four weeks apart.

During a consultation with your esthetician, the evaluation of your skin will be a determining factor with respect to how many treatments are needed. The professional and expert information you receive is important to ensuring your skin isn’t put into the wrong hands. The whole point is to treat your skin properly, and having an experienced esthetician – like J Marie Skin Studios – is crucial to getting your skin the care it deserves.
