VI Peels is a medium-depth peel that relies on the synergistic exfoliating and healing effects of TCA, Retin-A, Salicylic Acid, Phenol and Vitamin C. This solution can radically improve the tone, texture and clarity of skin marred by fine lines, wrinkles, open pores and sun damage, as well as acne age spots, freckles and hyperpigmentation, including melasma.
Before the peel treatment, your skin will be cleansed with acetone to remove all oils. A first layer will be applied which slightly numbs the skin. You may feel brief stinging for 5 to 10 seconds. Subsequent layers are applied until your skin “frosts”. The peel is left on and will self-neutralize over the next 6 hours. You will leave Danik with the VI Peel solution on your skin and will be given a post peel kit with instructions to follow strictly through Day 7. After the first 6 hours, your skin will feel and look tighter with a glow. Over the course of Day 2, your skin will darken and look tanned, and on Day 3, the peeling will begin and continue for 2 – 3 days. By Day 7, all the old skin will have peeled off and you skin will look fresh and radiant.
The treatment will take 30-45 minutes. Immediately after the treatment, the only side effect is usually mild redness or swelling, which disappears quickly. That means patients can get back to their daily routines with little or no downtime. Nevertheless there are some restrictions:
Just one treatment is required to achieve significant and very noticeable correction.
The length of time the results last depends on your health, lifestyle, and how well you care for your skin. To maintain your results, you should have a VI Peel 3-4 times a year and couple the peels with a daily at-home skincare regimen that includes the diligent use of sunscreen.
This peel can correct the full spectrum of skin types, from very fair to African-American, Latin, Middle Eastern and Asian.
Initially, you’ll feel a slight stinging sensation for a few seconds, but this will completely subside almost immediately.
The peeling associated with this treatment is light and fluffy. It will start on Day 3 and usually be finished by the end of Day 4. The peeling is easily hidden by moisturizer. In some cases, the peel is virtually invisible.
No. Sloughing off old skin forces the body to reproduce skin cells at a faster rate, which actually thickens skin, stimulating the underlying structure to make more collagen and elastin.

Via a synergistic blend of gentle yet powerful peeling agents, Vitalize Peel® has fast emerged as one of today’s most popular and effective paths to a more beautiful complexion. By capitalizing on the therapeutic affects of a physician-prescribed solution that combines alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, resorcinol and retinoic acid, a Vi Peel can – and does – radically improves the tone, texture and clarity of the skin.
After the very first treatment, you’ll see a visible improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and open pores, as well as age spots, freckles and hyper-pigmentation, including melasma. And after a series of treatments, the change in your skin’s appearance will be dramatic, thanks to the peel’s effectiveness in stimulating collagen and elastin production.
Results from Vi Peels:
If you have no intention of aging gracefully, a Vi Peel offers superior anti-aging results. This exceptional new therapy has been proven effective in the reversal of skin damage due to gravity, over-exposure to the sun, hormonal factors, and the environmental effects of exposure to toxins in food, drinking water, cosmetics, and even the air we breathe. What’s more, in addition to facial treatments, a Vi Peel can also be used on the décolletage and hands with beautiful, youth-enhancing results.
By removing the upper layers of skin and unclogging and shrinking pores, the Vi Peel dramatically reduces acne lesions and their recurrence. The post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (darkening) that occurs after acne heals is also improved with the Vi Peel. Thus, this regimen is routinely prescribed to clear up acne and its ravaging telltale signs in patients as young as 12 years old. A series of treatments is recommended based on the severity of the condition, and the results achieved can literally be life-altering for those whose self-esteem has been crippled by acne and its disfiguring aftermath.
Usually after treatment, the only side effect is a mild redness or swelling, which quickly goes away. That means patients can get back to their daily routines with little or no downtime.
