VI Peel Q & A

What is VI Peel?

VI Peel is a facial peel that combines powerful skin revitalizing ingredients that whisk away multiple kinds of skin damage in just one treatment. This unique approach gives you a virtually painless peel with the same kind of impressive results you’d get from a deep peel — but with little, to no downtime. 


What kind of skin issues does a VI Peel address?

VI Peel helps with many skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin discoloration, such as age spots
  • Skin redness
  • Skin roughness
  • Uneven or dull skin tone


VI Peel fights all the most common effects of sun exposure and aging. 


What ingredients are in the VI Peel?

The VI Peel contains powerful individual ingredients that work even better when combined. The VI Peel formula includes:

Salicylic acid

Salicylic acid is a beta-hydroxy acid that exfoliates your skin. It’s well known as a powerful acne and inflammation fighter.   

Trichloroacetic acid

Trichloroacetic acid penetrates your skin to help peel away wrinkles and discoloration. It also boosts collagen growth.

Retinoic acid

Retinoic acid, a derivative of vitamin A, effectively reduces lines and wrinkles.


Phenol is a powerful acid that penetrates your skin effectively to help fight lines and wrinkles.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant that brightens your skin and encourages mild exfoliation.

Most chemical peels contain just one primary acid, but what makes VI Peel so special is the synergistic blending of multiple skin-rejuvenating acids, along with a proprietary mineral blend to enhance results even more. 


What can I expect following my VI Peel treatment?

After your VI Peel, the City Laser Clinic team gives you specific aftercare instructions. Typically, you must wait around 4-5 hours to wash your skin after your treatment. 

In the next few days, you’ll notice that your skin looks a little darker or slightly reddish. It may also feel tighter and firmer. You may experience temporary darkening of hyperpigmentation like age spots and freckles. That’s a great sign that the VI Peel is doing its work.

On about the third day, you’ll likely start the peeling process. Usually, this begins around your mouth and then includes all treated areas. No need to peel with your fingers, your body sloughs away the dead skin naturally. Peeling goes on until about day six or seven, and at one week, you can expect to see your refreshed skin.

You’ll enjoy even better results over the next several weeks, as your body keeps up the new collagen production to smooth out lines and firm your skin.
