What is a VI Peel?
A VI peel is “medium depth peel” composed of a synergistic blend of five rejuvenating acids: TCA, Retin-A, Salicylic Acid, Phenol, and Vitamin C. It’s a safe and effective peel for all ages, ethnicities and skin types. With little to no preparation or downtime necessary, dramatic anti-aging benefits are achieved as soon as one week after treatment. It’s a great first-time peel for anyone interested in younger-looking, more radiant skin.
How does VI Peel work?
VI peel gently removes the top layers of dead and damaged skin. This catalyzes the body’s natural healing process to form new collagen, elastin and other connective tissue proteins. This new, healthy skin appears plumper, tighter, and more radiant.

What is VI Peel procedure like?
No preparation is required prior to VI Peel treatment. At Sleeq, we come to you, which means the peel is applied in just a few minutes at your home, office or special event. Upon application, a warm or tingling sensation may be observed, but then quickly goes away. VI Peel contains a dilute topical anesthetic to help minimize discomfort.
What happens after treatment with VI Peel?
Immediately after application of VI Peel, the skin may appear slightly flushed or mildly swollen, depending on your skin type, but this quickly dissipates. Normal activity can be resumed immediately following treatment. The peel should be left in place for at least four hours and then can be easily washed off. Vigorous activity should be avoided during the first 24-48 hours after treatment as perspiration can interfere with peel effectiveness.
Peeling typically begins two to three days later and lasts four to five days. The degree to which you peel depends on your skin type. An enriched moisturizer is helpful to aid in the healing process and can reduce the appearance of peeling skin. It’s important to use sunscreen on the treated area every day until full healing occurs approximately two weeks after treatment. Until then, application of make-up should be avoided. After 7-14 days, smoother, softer, even-toned, younger-looking skin is obvious!
Do I need repeated treatment with VI Peel?
A series of VI Peels, approximately monthly, are recommended to achieve optimal results. The exact number of sessions that is right for your depends on your skin type and treatment goals. Your Sleeq clinician will counsel you and offer guidance.
