The Benefits of a VI Chemical Peel for Acne-Prone Skin

Acne-prone skin can be frustrating and difficult to manage, but there are many treatment options available to help improve the appearance of blemishes and reduce the risk of future breakouts. One of the most effective treatments for acne-prone skin is the VI Chemical Peel. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the benefits of a VI Chemical Peel for acne-prone skin and why it may be the right choice for you.

What is a VI Chemical Peel? 

A VI Chemical Peel is a type of chemical peel that uses a unique combination of powerful ingredients to exfoliate the skin and promote cell turnover. The peel contains a blend of trichloroacetic acid (TCA), salicylic acid, retinoic acid, phenol, and vitamin C, which work together to improve the texture and appearance of the skin.

Benefits of a VI Chemical Peel for Acne-Prone Skin

  1. Reduces Acne Breakouts: The VI Chemical Peel is highly effective at reducing acne breakouts by exfoliating the skin and unclogging pores. This helps to remove excess oil, dirt, and bacteria that can contribute to acne.
  2. Improves Skin Texture: The peel works to improve skin texture by removing dead skin cells and promoting cell turnover. This can help to reduce the appearance of acne scars and leave your skin looking smoother and more even.
  3. Minimizes Pore Size: Pores can become enlarged due to excess oil production and buildup of dead skin cells. The VI Chemical Peel helps to unclog pores, which can reduce their size and improve the appearance of your skin.
  4. Enhances Skin Radiance: The peel contains vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant that helps to brighten and enhance the radiance of the skin. This can help to reduce the appearance of acne scars and give your skin a healthy, glowing appearance.

The VI Chemical Peel Process 

During a VI Chemical Peel treatment, your skin will be cleansed and prepped with a numbing cream. The VI Chemical Peel solution will then be applied to your skin, and you may feel a mild tingling or burning sensation. The peel will be left on your skin for a specific amount of time, depending on the strength of the peel and your skin type. After the peel is removed, a calming mask will be applied to soothe and hydrate the skin.


After a VI Chemical Peel, your skin may be red, swollen, and peeling for several days to a week. It’s important to avoid direct sunlight and wear a high-SPF sunscreen to protect your skin. You may also need to adjust your skincare routine to include gentle, hydrating products that will help soothe and nourish your skin.
