What is a VI Peel?
A VI Peel, also known as Vitality Institute peel is a popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure that may help sun damage, acne, oily skin and aging skin. These chemical peels contain different types of acid, such as alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, trichloroacetic acid and phenol. These powerful compounds are blended together depending on the strength of the peel and desired results. Revolution Aesthetics & Wellness offers five types of VI Peels to meet the needs of our patients: VI Peel Original, VI Peel Purify, VI Peel Purify with Precision Plus, VI Peel Advanced and VI Precision Plus Peel.

VI Peel Side Effects
Evidence shows that the main ingredients in VI peels are beneficial to a range of skin concerns. Overall chemical peels are generally a safe way to reduce sun damage, acne, and oily and aging skin. Some patients have experienced unwanted site effects such as skin swelling, itchy skin, blistering, burning sensations, and scarring. These side effects tend to be more common in patients with darker skin tones or who have a history of scar formation.
