The VI Peel® Chemical Peel in Bucks County, PA.
What is a Chemical Peel?
A chemical peel is a non-invasive treatment that improves the texture and appearance of your skin. During a superficial chemical peel, a chemical solution is brushed onto your skin and then removed after several minutes. The procedure removes the accumulative dull layer of surface skin cells, revealing fresh skin and stimulating cellular renewal. You may feel mild stinging with this procedure. Chemical Peels are typically done on the face, chest, or back. Schedule your free consultation by calling us at (267) 332-5567.

The Vi Chemical Peel
VI Peels are virtually pain free and include a specifically formulated post peel kit which is essential for your treatment’s success, ensuring optimal and lasting results. VI Peels are safe for all skin types, including darker skin tones. This peel improves tone, texture, and clarity of the skin. It reduces age spots, hyperpigmentation, melasma, and softens fine lines and wrinkles. It is also an excellent choice to address acne and reduce acne scars. The VI peel stimulates the production of collagen, for healthier, firmer more youthful skin.
Key Ingredients in the Vi Chemical Peel:
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) – provides excellent exfoliation properties while stimulating collagen production.
Retinoic acid (Vitamin A) – promotes collagen and elastin production, helps to increase water levels within the epidermis, and normalizes cell turnover.
Salicylic acid – beta hydroxy acid (BHA) with anti-inflammatory properties and is an effective anti-acne ingredient working as a keratolytic, clearing out dead cells.
Phenol – traps free radicals and exfoliates the skin.
L-Ascrobic acid (Vitamin C) – water soluble form of Vitamin C, an antioxidant and photo protectant (protects from UV damage). Also helps stimulate collagen production and brightens the skin.
How many VI Chemical Peel treatments are required to show visible results?
A single VI Peel® will achieve significant repair and impart a healthy glow to the skin. It is a true restorative, painless repair of damaged skin cells resulting from UV exposure and acne. Best of all, it is an aging preventative for younger patients with no visible damage.
In addition to the regular VI Peel®, we offer the VI Peel® Precision Plus for Hyperpigmentation and VI Peel® Purify for Acne.
The VI Peel® Precision Plus is ideal for hyperpigmentation and melasma. This chemical peel helps to reduce or eliminate age spots, freckles, hyperpigmentation and effectively manage melasma.
The VI Peel® Purify for Acne helps to improve blemishes and acne scars. This chemical peel removes bacteria, clears pores, increases cell turnover, brightens the skin and reduces acne scars. A series may be recommended depending on the individual’s needs.
Does a VI Peel burn?
Patients will feel a slight tingling sensation for a few seconds which subsides almost immediately. The peel is applied topically, with numbing of the skin taking place after the first pass.
