What is VI Peel? 

The Vi Peel, from the Los Angeles-based Vitality Institute, is a chemical peel that addresses fine lines and wrinkles, acne and acne scarring, hyperpigmentation due to sun damage and melasma, and promotes overall smoother skin texture by refining pores,controlling oil, and stimulating collagen production. All this with minimal downtime and discomfort. Described by its founders as a “great first-time peel for all age groups who want fresh, healthy, radiant skin,” the VI Peel seems to be a fix-all for a variety of skin types and conditions.

The secret? It all comes down to the synergistic blend of active ingredients including trichloroacetic acid (TCA), retinoic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, vitamin C, and a blend of minerals, which all have wonderful benefits, like improving texture and tone, rejuvenating the skin, and helping to prevent further damage. It also contains pain-numbing ingredients to lessen the burning sensation — doing away with it altogether for some patients. TheVi Peel is less about actually making the skin peel and more about infusing it with ingredients that will have beneficial effects.

Benefits of VI Peel

There are five different versions of the VI Peel available, each tailored to a specific concern; however, the overall benefits include: 

  • Reduces acne and surface acne scars: The VI Peel packs a one-two punch for those afflicted with acne, helping treat symptoms while lessening the scars it can leave behind. It smooths skin texture, brightens dark areas, soothes inflammation, and increases collagen to plump depressed or pitted skin. Ice pick scars, rolling scars, and boxcar scars can all be treated.
  • Diminishes sun spots and  hyperpigmentation: The synergistic blend of ingredients in the VI Peel is ideal for brightening     skin, diminishing sunspots, and leaving the complexion with a refreshing glow. 
  • Smoothes over fine lines and wrinkles: The combination of acids, antioxidants, and exfoliants penetrates skin deeply, causing a resurfacing process that stimulates new cell production, including collagen and elastin for a smoother, firmer, more youthful skin.

What’s in the VI Peel 

Here’s everything you need to know about the VI Peel from the inside-out: 

  • Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) and Phenol: If you’re familiar with chemical peels,you’re likely well-versed in both of these skin-smoothers. The combination of TCA and phenol creates a controlled injury of the skin, leading to regeneration and resulting in increased collagen and elastin production. TCA clears away dead skin cells to reveal the new skin layers below to treat concerns like skin discoloration, scarring, and wrinkles, while Phenol is often used to treat deeper concerns like sun damage, pigmentation, and facial lines.
  • Salicylic Acid: The same go-to active in many acne products gives the VI Peel an extra boost of breakout-busting power. Salicylic acid is used to exfoliate the skin and clean the pores, can reduce mild breakouts of whiteheads and blackheads, and preventsf uture skin breakouts. 
  • Retinoic Acid: Retinoid acid is a derivative of vitamin A and helps to regulate growth and differentiation of skin cells, resulting in a reduction in acne, inflammation,and oil production. It’s also where the Vi Peel’s anti-aging benefits come in,resulting in the ability to exfoliate, firm, and volumize the skin. 
  • Vitamin C: Vitamin C is included in the VI Peel as a powerful antioxidant that counters some of the damaging effects of the sun and pollution, reducing pigmentation and improving the appearance of the skin. Not to mention its collagen-boosting properties, which is instrumental in plumping skin and smoothing over wrinkles. 
  • Hydroquinone, Kojic Acid, Benzoyl Peroxide, Hydrocortisone: The more targeted versions of the VI Peel might contain the above ingredients for their abilities to target breakouts,hyperpigmentation, and inflammation. 

What to expect during a VI Peel

As far as chemical peels go, the VI Peel is noninvasive, and most patients agree that it’s painless. Some patients report a mild tingling sensation, but nothing severe. It’s also fast, taking about 30 minutes from start to finish. It’s common to experience peeling over the first four-to-five days after treatment. 

Potential side effects

The treated skin will peel afterward, and clients must resist theurge to pick or peel away at the skin to avoid scarring. This is especially important for those with darker skin tones. Some patients might experience some skin discoloration around three days after treatment, though it dissipates independently. 


  • Single treatment: $325
  • Package of 2: $630 ($315 per treatment)
  • Package of 3: $900 ($300 per treatment)


In addition to resisting any urges to pick, peel, or touch your face, aftercare is relatively easy and involves sticking to the post-care instructions you’ll receive after treatment, such as using sunscreen and moisturizer as instructed. Also, stay away from aggressive ingredients such as acids and retinols until given the all-clear by your practitioner, or you’ll risk harming your skin’s barrier function, which is vital for proper healing.
