The unique blend of ingredients in the VI Peel produces powerful results with no pain, no skin preparation and very little downtime. VI Peel is a combination of several of the most effective medical peel agents available. At Total Dermatology, we strive to deliver the best VI peel Irvine has to offer.
VI Peel delivers results in 7 Days.
Your skin will be cleansed with acetone to remove all oils. A first layer will be applied which slightly numbs the skin. You may feel a brief stinging for 5 to 10 seconds. Subsequent layers are applied until your skin “frosts”. The peel is left on and will self-neutralize over the next 6 hours. Your skin will feel and look tighter with a glow. Skin will darken to look tanned, then the peeling will begin on Day 3 with Peel completion by Day 7. Our Irvine VI peel patients new skin will be much smoother, clearer and more tone-balanced.

Day 1. You will leave the office with the VI Peel solution on your skin and will be given a post-peel kit. Nothing is to be applied to the area treated on day one (no SPF, makeup or moisturizer of any kind). The peel must be the only thing on your skin in order to allow time for proper penetration. Make sure you leave the VI Peel solution on for at least 6 hours. You must stay out of the sun.
Night of Day 1. Wash the peel off one hour before bedtime that evening and apply the (Retine A/Vitamin C towelette) into the skin and sleep with it in the skin that first night.
Day 2. The following morning you should wash & dry your face, apply hydrocortisone 1%, and then apply the provided SPF 30. You will reapply the hydrocortisone and SPF at least three times throughout the day.
Night of Day 2. That second night one hour before bedtime wash and dry your face and apply the second Retine A/Vitamin C towelette into the skin and sleep with it all night.
Day 3. The following morning (day 3) is, generally, the day you will begin to peel. You will continue the same step as morning two (wash and dry the face, apply the hydrocortisone and SPF 30).
