How it works

The VI Peel in St. Louis is an effective treatment that targets damaged skin on the face and neck and is safe for treatment between the eyes. It removes outer skin layers to stimulate renewal, resulting in a more even skin tone.  

Skin Rejuvenation

The VI Peel employs a mix of skin-enhancing components, such as Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA), Retinoic Acid, Salicylic Acid, Phenol, Vitamin C, and other minerals. Through an exfoliating process, it fosters skin cell regeneration or cellular turnover, promoting overall skin rejuvenation.
