A Powerful Booster for Treating Stubborn Hyper-Pigmentation
The Precision Peel is made from the same synergistic blend of ingredients as the VI PEEL, but at a higher concentration, for a peel that is about 25% stronger than a VI PEEL. The Precision PEEL is an excellent addition for treating stubborn hyper-pigmentation including melasma, actinic keratosis and age spots on hands, arms or chest. The Precision Peel is to be used in conjunction with the VI PEEL.

How would the VI Peel compare to the Obagi Blue Peel or a TCA Peel?
The VI PEEL is almost painless, and requires no skin pre conditioning that is required by Obagi Blue Peel and other TCA peels when used on skin types 4 to 6. In addition, the VI Peel has very few of the complications and hazards that usually come with those peels
How many peels can you do and how far apart should they be done?
For most patients, peels should be done three to four times a year starting at puberty to repair sun damage that is already present, and to avoid permanent scarring for those affected by acne. The frequency of the peel depends on various factors, and will be determined by your doctor. For extremely damaged skin, the VI PEEL can initially be done once a month to get quicker desired results.
How is the VI PEEL different from other peels?
Without exception, obsolete peels of the past epitomize the "no pain, no gain" approach to skin care. Before the VI PEEL the deeper the peel, the more painful, the more downtime, the better the results. The VI PEEL is the first peel to combine the strongest and most effective acids, yet it's virtually painless with little downtime.
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. Some conditions like acne scars, pore enlargement and hyper pigmentation might require multiple applications. It is a restorative and painless repair of damaged skin, including sun damage and acne. Best of all, it is a true aging preventative for younger skin with no visible damage.
What types of skin respond well to the VI PEEL?
ALL skin types can enjoy the benefits of the VI PEEL. For the first time, African-American and darker skin types such as Asian and Latin patients can experience anti-aging and restorative skin repair that was previously unavailable.
How much will I peel?
The skin peeling associated with the VI PEEL is a light, fluffy peel that generally starts on day three and generally be finished by the end of day seven. The peeling is easily hidden by moisturizer. In some cases, the peel is virtually invisible. Patients using Retin A may experience heavier peeling. The peel can be modulated by your skin care provider to produce a deeper, more aggressive peel, if necessary, depending on your skin condition.
What will I look like right after the VI PEEL and during the next few days?
The skin will look slightly tan, yellow or red immediately after the peel. On days one and two the skin will feel slightly tighter, with no visible signs of having had a peel. Any pigmented areas might appear slightly darker. On approximately day three, you will begin to peel. The first signs of peeling usually begin around the mouth area and continue for a day or two. With the use of the Vi Derm™ Post Care 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! If a more aggressive peel, such as the VI Peel with Precision, was performed, a secondary peel might occur around day seven.
What about normal activities after the VI PEEL?
There are no restrictions. We recommend avoiding heavy sweating for the first few days after the peel. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after the peel.
What will the VI PEEL do for my skin?
It tackles skin problems at the cellular level. 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 reducing or eliminating hyper pigmentation including melasma, the most difficult pigmentation issue to correct. The Vi Peel also provides excellent results for acne.
