The VI Peel is among the most requested chemical peels, thanks to its impressive anti-aging properties and ability to address a wide array of cosmetic concerns, ranging from acne scarring and sun damage to enlarged pores and melasma.
Our team at NassifMD® MedSpa is excited to offer this advanced cosmetic treatment as part of our ongoing commitment to achieving beautiful, luminous skincare results.
What is a VI Peel?
The VI Peel is formulated with minerals, salicylic acid, vitamin C, retinoic acid, and TCA (trichloroacetic acid) and is appropriate for a range of skin ailments. This medium, medical-grade peel is a safe, effective rejuvenation procedure to help remove the outermost layer of damaged skin, revealing a pristine, blemish-free complexion beneath. As the VI Peel is formulated with a built-in topical anesthetic, patients experience no pain or discomfort.
What Concerns can a VI Peel Address?
- Lines, creases, and wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Acne and acne scarring
- Crow’s feet
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage
What Can I Expect From My Treatment?
A VI Peel typically takes around 30 minutes to complete. The skin is gently cleansed and stripped of any residual oil. The peel is then applied layer by layer. As the solution penetrates the pores, you may feel a slight tingling sensation. After the peel has been completely applied, a layer of sunscreen is then smoothed across the skin. The peel remains in place until the patient arrives home. Within a few hours, the patient can remove the peel using vitamin C-infused towelettes.

Am I a good candidate for a VI Peel?
If you are concerned about fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone and texture, facial redness, hyperpigmentation, or acne, a VI Peel might be the ideal solution you’ve been looking for. The VI Peel can be uniquely customized to your individual needs and is appropriate for many different skin types. Even if your skin is sensitive, the VI Peel might still work for you. The best way to tell for sure is to schedule a private, in-depth consultation with Dr. Nassif and his medspa team.
What can I expect after my VI Peel?
After a VI Peel, the complexion may appear bronzed due to the surfacing of pigmented cells. During the healing phase, you’ll need to protect your skin and keep it hydrated using medical-grade skincare products recommended by Dr. Nassif and his team. By day 3, your skin will begin to peel and may feel itchy. This shedding of the skin’s damaged outer layer continues for up to one week. Always wear sunscreen when outdoors to prevent skin damage. Multiple VI Peels may be required to achieve your desired results, with treatments spaced out every 2-4 weeks.
