Summer Radiance Awaits: Discover VI Peel Benefits

As the summer season approaches, achieving radiant skin remains a top priority for many individuals. One effective way to achieve this is through the use of VI Peel. VI (Vitality Institute) Peel is a chemical peel that can help improve skin tone, texture, and overall appearance. This treatment works by stimulating collagen and elastin production, resulting in smoother, brighter, and healthier skin. 

 Let’s discuss VI peels, covering their types, benefits, and procedures to help you make an informed decision.

Understanding VI Peel

The VI peel is a medium-depth chemical peel that gently exfoliates the outer layers of the skin, removing dead skin cells and promoting the growth of new, healthy cells. This helps improve the skin’s overall appearance, leaving it flawless. Additionally, the VI peel stimulates collagen production, which helps to tighten the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

VI Peel Types and Benefits

VI peel comes in different types to meet different skin types, including: 

  1. VI Peel (Original/Basic)

This peel suits different skin types and has rejuvenating, anti-aging, and restorative properties. Enhancing skin tone, texture, and clarity, it reduces aging signs while safeguarding against future skin damage. 


  • Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Diminishes sun damage
  • Refines rough skin texture
  • Corrects uneven skin tone 
  1. VI Peel Advanced (Precision)

It is designed for mature skin to promote collagen stimulation. Its booster system is specially formulated to be used alongside the VI peel, offering increased volume for deeper penetration.

  • Enhances skin texture
  • Restores a more balanced skin tone

Moreover, this treatment effectively targets active acne and helps prevent future breakouts in acne-prone skin.

  • Treats dark patches and acne spots
  • Boosts skin texture and tone

Reasons Why You Should Peel in the Summer

Here is why you should refresh and rejuvenate your skin with VI peel this summer:

  •   To Achieve the Glow

VI peel contains salicylic acid, which aids those with oily skin in absorbing and managing excess oil and those with dry skin in smoothing out the skin and eliminating pores.  

  •   To Quickly Fix Your Skin

The VI Peel provides you with flawless skin in just 6 days. Say goodbye to the need for a professional makeup artist, as your makeup will glide effortlessly on your rejuvenated skin.

  •   To Embrace the Natural Look

If you rely on a heavy, long-lasting foundation to cover imperfections, VI peel is for you. This solution helps fade the signs of sun damage accumulated over the years, leaving glowing skin.

  •   To Improve Your Skin’s Health and Appearance

Leverage VI peel to address and repair any sun damage accumulated from the previous year. Consider scheduling the treatment by the end of summer to rejuvenate your skin and address any lingering effects of sun exposure.

Benefits of VI Peel for Summer

VI peel offers numerous skin benefits for summer, including:

  •   Treats Uneven Skin Tone and Sun Damage

VI peel contains TCA, retinol, salicylic acid, phenol, and vitamin C, which work together to brighten the skin, even skin tone, and reduce the signs of sun damage. 

  •    Exfoliates Skin from Inside Out

By exfoliating your skin, VI peel removes dead skin cells and stimulates collagen production. This way, VI peel helps to improve skin tone and texture, leaving you with a more radiant complexion.

  •    Reduces Wrinkles and Fine Lines

VI peels work by breaking down the top layers of skin cells, which can encourage collagen and elastin production, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

What to Expect During and After Treatment?

During the Procedure 

A VI peel is a painless procedure that can take 30 minutes to complete. Here is what you can expect during the treatment:

  • Your provider will clean your skin to remove oil and dirt.
  • They will apply the VI peel solution in two layers.
  • You may experience a tingling sensation when the first layer is applied, but it is tolerable. When the second layer is applied, your skin will turn white or frost.
  • After 4 to 6 hours, the peel will be washed off.
  • Your skin will start peeling after 3 days following the procedure.

After Care

You can take care of your skin and maintain the results of the peel by following these steps:

  • Avoid creams or lotions until you wash off your peel.
  • Apply the “post-peel protectant” given to you following the procedure 2-4 times daily.
  • Apply moisturizer regularly until your skin starts peeling.
  • Avoid sun exposure when your skin is peeling.
  • Wear sunscreen when you go outside.

  • Dry skin
