New: the Vi PEEL: suddenly, every other PEEL is OBSOLETE!
The Vi Peel is guaranteed to be finest peel you have ever experienced! The unique blend of ingredients in our Peel produces powerful results with no pain, no skin preparation and very little downtime.
We are excited to be offering the latest sensation in peels! The VI Peel was designed for people on the go who would like more visible results then a light peel offers, but cannot commit to the downtime of a deeper peel. Using the combined efforts of TCA (Trichloroacetic Acid), Salicylic Acid, Phenol, Retinoic Acid, Vitamins and Microelements it is a proven effective treatment for aging, hyperpigmentation and acne.
The Vi Peel will:
- Improve the tone, texture and clarity of your skin
- Reduce or eliminate age spots, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation, including melasma
- Soften lines and wrinkles
- Clear acne skin conditions, reduce or eliminate acne scars
- Stimulate the production of collagen, for firmer, more youthful skin
The ViPeel has the positive effects typically associated with the more powerful or aggressive peels. However, the Vi Peel does not have the discomfort and downtime that comes with those older aggressive peels. People note that they feel fresher and cleaner after the process.

How does it work?
Our aesthetician will apply a solution designed to improve and smooth the texture of the facial skin by removing its damaged outer layers. The unique blend of ingredients in ViPeel produces powerful results with no pain, no skin preparation and very little downtime.
How is the Vi Peel different from other peels?
Obsolete peels of the past, without exception, epitomize the “no pain, no gain” approach to skin care. Before Vi Peel, the deeper the peel, the more painful, the more downtime, the better the results. Vi Peel is the first Next Generation Aesthetic. It is painless, yet produces dramatic visible results in just days with little downtime.
Will the results be long lasting?
Like everything else in life, skin needs maintenance. The Vi Peel’s results will last as long as skin care is maintained, sun exposure is moderate and preventive aging with the Vi Peel is performed three or four times per year. In between treatments, use the Vi Derm™ Skin Care System for optimal results.
What types of skin respond well to Vi Peel?
The many innovations that created the Vi Peel combine to enable the entire continuum of skin types to enjoy the benefits of the peel. For the first time, African-American and darker skin types such as some Asian and Latin skins can experience anti-ageing and restorative skin care previously unavailable.
What will the Vi Peel do for my skin?
It uses the synergy of all available and known modes of action of various acids to produce a multitude of positive effects. It tackles skin problems at the cellular level rather than just burning skin off. Thanks to the concerted actions of its many acids and vitamins, it will help erase fine lines and wrinkles, shrink enlarged pores and build collagen and elastin which tighten skin. It is extremely effective in practically eliminating hyper pigmentation including melasma, the most difficult pigmentation issue to address. The Vi Peel also provides excellent results for with acne.
How many peels are needed?
The peel may be repeated as often as every two weeks, if necessary, for damaged skin. Our recommendation for average skin would be once every three months to prevent on-going damage and rejuvenate the skin. Your doctor or skin care professional will evaluate your skin, as well as your goals and expectations and make an appropriate recommendation for ongoing skin care.
How many treatments are required to show an improved look?
A single Vi Peel will achieve significant repair and add a healthy glow to the skin. It is a true, restorative and painless repair of damaged skin including sun damage and acne. Best of all, it is a true aging preventive for younger skin with no visible damage.
Does it burn?
Not really. You will feel a slight stinging sensation for a few seconds which subsides completely almost immediately. The peel is applied topically, numbing of the skin takes place after the first pass. Some patients may feel more comfortable using a fan or cold air breeze.
What will I look like right after the ViPeel and during the next few days?
The skin will look slightly tan to red immediately after the peel. On days one and two the skin will feel slightly tighter with no visible signs of having a peel except for looking slightly tan. Any pigmented areas might appear slightly darker, which is a good sign. On about day three, you will begin to peel. The first signs of peeling usually begin around the mouth area, continuing for a day or two. With the use of the Vi Derm™ moisturizer, you may go about your usual daily routine. By day six or day seven you will be done peeling and the results are dramatic!
How badly will I peel?
The skin peeling associated with the Vi Peel is a light, fluffy peel that will start on day three and generally be finished by the end of day four. The peeling is easily hidden by moisturizer. In some cases, the peel is virtually invisible.
Can I wear makeup after the Vi Peel?
Makeup may be worn at any time after the peel solution has dried. Makeup should not be applied on the days that the skin is peeling, just moisturizer. Makeup can then be resumed at any time after the skin peels.
Can I go in the sun after the Vi Peel?
Sun exposure should be limited and adequate protection with an SPF 30 sunscreen. Avoid sun exposure completely while undergoing the Vi Peel, specially days three and four, when the skin is peeling. After that, you can enjoy moderate sun exposure, but don’t forget to apply sunscreen.
Are teenage acne sufferers too young for the Vi Peel?
Dr. Kalil originally formulated the Vi Peel for his 15 year old daughter, an acne sufferer. The peel is excellent for both adult and adolescent acne. We have effectively peeled acne patients as young as twelve years old. Results are quick and very impressive. Combined with a daily skin regimen, almost all acne cases can be readily and safely managed
How long is a treatment?
ViPeel application takes approximately 15-30 minutes. There is no downtime with this procedure. Most patients feel clean and refreshed at the completion of the treatment.
