Chemical peels are designed to improve the color and texture of facial skin by gently removing the surface layer of dead skin cells. These minimally-invasive skin care treatments can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, age spots, and a number of other perceived blemishes on many different skin types. As skin health experts, we offer multiple chemical peel options that vary in strength and depths of surface penetration. During an initial consultation, the most effective peel based on your individual needs will be selected in order to help you achieve a refreshed and healthy complexion for your skin.
Environ Peels are based on physiology of skin; it should be protected and treated very well. If the skin is aggressively peeled this disrupts the skins natural barrier and water will easily be lost. This would enable environmental toxins to enter the skin more easily.
The Environ peel removes the excess horny layer of the skin and maintains the water-proofing barrier qualities of the skin. Environ Peels are ideal for hydrating and refining. The Cool Peel will repair and encourage exfoliation, revealing fresh and youthful skin.
Environ has a variety of peeling systems, using acidic creams and gels instead of using acid solutions. These peels preserve as much epidermis as possible while at the same time, getting the safest effective concentration of hydronium ions into the dermis. These peels are designed to preserve the architecture of the skin simultaneously stimulating the fibroblasts in the dermis to increase the quantity of collagen in the dermis.
Environ is different from other peels, because Environ pioneered the production of acidic creams and gels instead of using acid solutions. Strong acid solutions are usually colourless; one might end up doing a deeper peel than intended. When a strong acid is applied to the skin it burns a great deal. The cool peel is cool, no burning sensation.

VI Peel is a medium depth chemical peel that is composed of a unique blend of ingredients that can be used on all skin tones and textures to give the skin that beautiful glow. Whether you are facing problems such as uneven texture, enlarge pores, hyperpigmentation caused from acne, sun damage, or hormone imbalance, or just want a refreshed look, the VI Peel is the perfect procedure for you.
The VI peel is composed of five rejuvenating acids: TCA, Retin-A, Salicylic Acid, Phenol, and Vitamin C. This unique treatment is designed to reverse the early signs of aging and sun damage with little downtime. In about a week, patients will see an improvement in the skin’s tone and texture. Large pores are eliminated and areas of hyperpigmentation can be significantly decreased with the VI Peel.
Once the VI Peel has been applied by the nurse, patients are free to return home. The peel will need to remain on the skin for at least four hours, at which time it can be washed off. Additional aftercare products, designed to enhance the peeling process, will be given to the patient. The nurse will carefully review all of the at-home instructions before a VI Peel patient leaves the office.
A VI Peel is a medium depth chemical peel, consisting a unique blend of five acids. In a little over a week, patients will see a reduction in fine lines, decreased acne scarring, eliminated hyperpigmentation, and a refreshed appearance.
The VI Peel will gently remove the top layers of unhealthy, dead skin. This allows newer, healthier skin to show, leaving a brighter, firmer, younger looking appearance. The VI Peel will also encourage the body’s natural Collagen production, further smoothing and plumping the skin.
The ideal candidate for a VI Peel will be a patient looking to improve their appearance and reverse the early signs of aging, but is unwilling to commit to the long recovery period associated with traditional deep Chemical Peels. The VI Peel is safe for all skin tones and ethnicities.
A VI Peel is safe for the face, neck, hands, and body.
Initially, after patients wash the VI Peel from their face, the skin will appear red and mildly swollen. This is normal and will resolve over the first 24 hours. It is imperative that the VI Peel should remain on the face for a minimum of four hours. Vigorous exercise or strenuous activities should be avoided for the first 24-48 hours, as the resulting sweat could potentially alter the VI Peel’s results.
Two to three days after the VI Peel application, the skin will begin to peel. This process can last between three and seven days, depending on the patient’s skin type and condition. Moisturizer can be used during this time to help mask the noticeable appearance of peeling. While the skin is healing, it may be extra sensitive, so patients should continuously wear sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher during the peeling process. Once the skin is fully healed, in about 14 days, patients will notice a smoother, healthier complexion.
Normally patients are encouraged to do a series of four VI Peels, at three week intervals, for optimal results. The exact number of treatments required will depend on each patient’s individual skin and the level of correction needed.
