VI Peel

The VI Peel is a combination chemical peel containing alpha-hydroxy, beta-hydroxy, resorcinol, and retinoic acids. This unique prescription-only peel is gentle enough to have as often as every two weeks but yet powerful enough to dramatically enhance your skin texture, tone, and clarity. To maintain your skin, Novo Aesthetics generally recommends VI Peels every month or so, along with quality clinical skincare products.

The VI Peel can help with:

  • Age spots and other hyperpigmentation, including melasma
  • Fine lines
  • Acne
  • Acne scars

You’ll see results as soon as skin stops peeling, about a week after your treatment.

It can be used anywhere on the body, including the neck, chest, and hands.

For the week leading up to your peel, you’ll be asked to stop using prescription retinoids as well as any products that contain alpha hydroxy acids, like glycolic acid; beta hydroxy acids, like salicylic acid; or benzoyl peroxide.

 

You’ll also need to avoid waxing, electrolysis, depilatory creams, and laser hair removal for a week before the procedure.

 

These ingredients and treatments can temporarily weaken the integrity of the skin’s protective barrier and make skin more prone to burning and irritation.
