First, what is VI Peel Chemical Peel?

VI Peel is a medium-depth chemical peel that employs a synergistic blend of powerful ingredients to improve the tone, texture, and clarity of your skin. It is painless upon application and offers results within seven days, making it suitable for all skin types.

Key Benefits of VI Peel

  • Restores Even Skin Tone: VI Peel helps in balancing your skin tone, reducing age spots, sun spots, and hyperpigmentation.
  • Smoothens Rough Texture: It effectively treats uneven skin texture and softens rough areas, giving you a smoother and more refined complexion.
  • Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles: The active ingredients help stimulate collagen production, which diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
