What is a Med Spa VI Peel?

While injectables and fillers are popular options for reversing many of the common signs of aging the Med Spa VI peel is still outpacing them as effective tools for individuals seeking to turn back time.

Not only are chemical peels a wonderful tool for anti-aging, but they provide a gamut of solutions for other common and bothersome skin issues.

The most versatile and successful peel by far to combat a variety of problem skin conditions is VI Peel.

This family of medical-grade chemical peels offers 5 different formulations to address everything from advanced aging to acne, including hyperpigmentation and melasma.

The main objective of the VI Peel is to improve the texture and appearance of the skin on your face, neck, and chest, giving you an even-toned, blemish-free, and younger complexion.

What Makes a Med Spa VI Peel So Much Better?

A VI Peel uses a proprietary blend of different ingredients, including medically approved, skin safe acids which deeply exfoliate to restore and renew your complexion.

This type of Peel is safe for all skin types and hues and is recommended to improve acne, reduce hyperpigmentation, and erase fine lines and wrinkles.

With five specific formulations, a VI Peel is able to target the specific skin concerns of anyone from ages 12 to 80.

Traditional chemical peels lack the multi-level cellular treatment patients find with a VI Peel.

No matter the improvements you need to make this innovative product includes ingredients to help nurture your skin at the cellular level.

All of the VI Peel treatments require no preconditioning and are virtually painless.

The Myth of a Perfect Complexion

A perfect complexion is about as mythical as a unicorn.

Everyone has something about their skin they would like to correct, at some point in their lives.

Vi Peel formulations are customized to your specific needs, no matter where you are in your life’s journey.

Here are some of the conditions we all encounter.


Your skin is subjected to many conditions as you age.

Elements such as sun, wind, cold weather, and dry heat take a toll on the skin’s resilience.

Throw in poor choices and bad habits, along with a natural reduction in collagen and elastin and you begin to understand why your skin appears dull, lifeless, less even-toned, and becomes slack.

Wrinkles begin to appear as further evidence of a life lived.


More than just a rite-of-passage, acne is a condition that causes pain, inflammation, and embarrassment to teens and young adults.

Sebum, an oily substance your body produces to lubricate skin and hair, tends to be overabundant during the teen years.

Excess sebum collects in the pores, attracting dirt and dead skin cells and bacteria develop.

Inflammation occurs in the form of whiteheads, blackheads, small red papules, angry-looking pustules, and painful lumps beneath the skin’s surface called nodules.

Some individuals will develop cystic lesions, which often result in unsightly scarring.

Acne Scarring

Acne scarring causes many individuals to be self-conscious.

Acne blemishes often become inflamed as pores clog with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria.

When the cystic blemish eventually fades it leaves behind lesions due to breaks in the walls of the pores.

Although acne scars aren’t deep they can be unsightly.


Hyperpigmentation is a common skin condition.

In older individuals, it may be referred to as “liver spots” or “age spots”.

These small, dark patches are found on the hands and face, or anywhere skin is exposed to the sun’s damaging rays.

Hyperpigmentation occurs in people of all races and skin types.

Other causes of hyperpigmentation include skin damage or injury, such as that caused by surgical procedures.

Acne can also leave you with hyperpigmented areas on your face.


Melasma is a form of hyperpigmentation.

Typically the result of hormonal fluctuations, melasma is very common in pregnancy.

In fact, as melasma occurs in childbearing it’s often referred to as “the mask of pregnancy.”

Birth control pills cause hormonal changes as well and may contribute to melasma.

When hormonal changes occur there is often a spike in the body’s production of melanin.

The surge of melanin results in this hormone-specific hyperpigmentation.

Put Your Best Face Forward

All of these skin conditions take a toll on your self-esteem, causing you to feel embarrassed in social situations, or work environment.

With a VI Peel, it isn’t necessary for you to continue trying to mask your dark spots and sun damage or slather on expensive creams hoping for an anti-aging miracle to banish your fine lines and wrinkles.

And you needn’t layer on scar concealing foundation to hide the telltale scars from acne.

With just a few skin peel treatments you’ll the even-toned complexion you dream of.

This peel brightens and tightens lackluster and slack skin, and triggers your body’s natural collagen production.

Your skin is healing itself and the results are amazing. You look better, and, more importantly, you feel better.
