Chemical Peel Procedure

During a chemical peel, a provider will apply a chemical solution to your skin. This solution peels away damaged skin cells, allowing healthy skin to grow in their place. A VI Peel only takes about 30 minutes and is usually painless. It uses a blend of ingredients to break down your top layer of skin and reveal healthy skin underneath.Your exact procedure may differ slightly, but here’s what you can generally expect:

  • The practitioner will cleanse your skin to remove dirt and oil.
  • They will then apply the VI Peel solution in two to three layers.
  • You may experience some numbness or tingling once the first layer is applied.
  • Once the second layer is applied, your skin may “frost,” or turn white, if not the third layer is applied.
  • About 4 to 6 hours later, you’ll wash off the peel.
  • Your skin will start peeling about 3 days after the procedure.

Peel benefits

A VI Peel offers benefits similar to those of other light to medium chemical peels. Let’s look at some of the most common conditions it’s used to treat.

Fine lines and wrinkles:

Chemicals peels break down your top layers of skin cells. This breakdown can stimulate your body’s natural healing process and the production of new collagen and elastin.

Collagen and elastin are the two key proteins that give your skin its structure and elasticity. Lack of these proteins contributes to the formation of wrinkles.

VI Peels and other superficial to medium-depth chemical peels aren’t effective for removing deep wrinkles or sagging skin.

Treating sun spots and discoloration:

Chemical peels can potentially help you lighten areas of skin darkened by sun damage or skin conditions like melasmaTrusted Source.

One of the key ingredients in VI Peels is phenol. Phenol is one of the most effectiveTrusted Source ingredients used in chemical peels for treating freckles and discoloration.

Treating keratosis pilaris:

Some of the active ingredients in a VI Peel, such as salicylic acidTrusted Source, may help break down bumps caused by keratosis pilaris (chicken skin).

Keratosis pilaris is a common condition in which dead skin cells clog hair follicles and produce bumps that resemble the skin of a plucked chicken.

Does VI Peel treat acne?

A VI Peel and other light to medium chemical peels are often used to improve acne.

Chemical peels can treat acne in a number of ways, including:

  • reducing oil production
  • killing bacteria
  • reducing inflammation
  • breaking down your outer layer of skin
  • reducing your number of clogged pores

Salicylic acid, one of the key ingredients in a VI Peel, is also one of the best treatments for acne scars.

Side Effects

VI Peels are generally well tolerated. However, some people may experience side effects, such as:

  • burning pain
  • skin discoloration
  • swelling
  • blistering
  • itchiness
  • allergic reaction
  • infection
  • dry skin
  • inflammation
  • redness
  • scarring


You can get a VI Peel as frequently as every 4 to 6 weeks, and it can be used on all skin types. For the best results, follow the aftercare instructions your provider gives you.
