What are VI Peels?
Natural age and genetics play a major role in the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections that make you feel less than confident. A VI peel is a noninvasive way to manage these common concerns and more. This innovative treatment dissolves dead or damaged skin cells using a special blend of minerals. As the skin repairs itself and the upper layers peel away, you should notice a clearer and smoother complexion underneath. Refining Beauty is proud to provide personalized options for VI peels at our Midlothian, TX, office. Call to schedule a consultation with Dr. James Leffingwell and learn more about how we create healthier-looking skin through VI peels.

Who is a Candidate for a VI peel?
A consultation is the best time to determine if you are an ideal candidate for a VI peel. Dr. Leffingwell begins by carefully evaluating your skin in our Midlothian, TX office. Once we learn about your skin and anti-aging concerns, we select a personalized treatment plan for optimal results. VI peels can reduce common but frustrating issues like fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, sun damage, age spots, hyperpigmentation, acne, and acne scarring. We can also customize your peel according to your specific needs and goals. Please inform our team if you have any active lesions or take medications that cause skin sensitivity.
What to Expect During a VI peel
Refining Beauty has patients lie down in a comfortable position to administer the VI treatment. Our team will make sure your skin is cleansed of any makeup or oils prior to applying the customized solutions for an appropriate length of time. Dr. Leffingwell can let you know how long this process will take during your initial consultation. Some people may require more time than others, depending on their skin concerns. We then wash away the solution and apply a safe neutralizing agent. To avoid UV exposure, patients should bring sunscreen and/or a hat to wear outside after the procedure.
How Long is Recovery after a VI peel?
A VI peel should only cause minor side effects like redness and irritation that can be managed at home. Your face may peel for a short period of time, depending on the extent of your treatment. Dr. Leffingwell or a member of our trained team will provide detailed guidelines on caring for your skin during recovery. Please remember that no matter how badly your skin itches during the post-treatment process, peeling the skin off yourself is never helpful. You could cause scarring or discoloration!
VI Peel FAQ
What is the difference between a chemical peel and a VI peel?
A VI peel is a kind of chemical peel. However, a VI peel penetrates the deeper layer of the skin for more improved rejuvenation. During your appointment at our Midlothian, TX facility, we can let you know if you would be a better candidate for a chemical peel or VI peel.
How long will my skin peel and flake for following a VI peel?
Usually, most patients will experience the skin peeling and sloughing off the treated outer layer for about a week. After the skin is finished peeling, the natural pH of the skin usually returns in approximately three days, and ideal results are then typically seen. Dr. Leffingwell recommends that you always refrain from picking or pulling at your skin as it peels.
How long do results from a VI peel last?
VI peel results may vary from patient to patient. However, most patients will experience outcomes that last anywhere from 3 – 6 months. Prior to your treatment, our team can talk with you about what you can anticipate and if you should schedule subsequent visits to Refining Beauty.
