If you have fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, skin discoloration, keratosis pilaris, or even acne, then VI Chemical Peels should be on your radar. Avenue 1 Aesthetics has long been providing these peels to clients to help reduce troublesome skin issues, and there's a reason for that. It's easy, fast, and effective. This incredibly safe procedure has been around for years, and it's a go-to in our office to help combat a variety of skin issues.

Today, we're talking about how a VI Chemical Peel works and how it can help you achieve the skin you've always wanted.

What is a VI Chemical Peel? 

VI Chemical Peel is a medium-depth chemical peel that penetrates the top layer of your skin - the epidermis - and reaches down to the dermis beneath it. Using chemicals, the peel exfoliates the skin, removing the top layer and stimulating the production of new skin proteins.

VI Chemical Peels use a blend of ingredients to exfoliate the skin more deeply than over-the-counter exfoliators. You'll find these chemicals in many skin treatments that are available over the counter, however, their proportions and amounts are combined in such a way that they offer a deeper exfoliation and far better results. VI peel ingredients include: 

  • Trichloroacetic acid (TCA)
  • Phenol
  • Salicylic acid
  • Vitamin C
  • Tretinoin

Working in conjunction with one another, these ingredients penetrate the skin and cause the top layer to slough off while keeping it safely nourished to ensure the promotion of healthy new skin formation.

The peeling process activates the body's healing factors, promoting increased protein, collagen, and elastin production in the peeled area, promoting the production of a new skin layer that is far healthier than what was removed.

Benefits of VI Chemical Peels

VI Chemical Peels treat a variety of skin issues by promoting the increased production of collagen and elastin as well as breaking down the bumps caused by keratosis pilaris. The peel is a multi-purpose treatment that can help resolve several skin issues.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

By removing the top layers of skin cells, this peel stimulates the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two key proteins for skin tightness and elasticity. By increasing those two factors, fine lines and wrinkles are reduced.

Sun Spots and Discoloration

An active ingredient in VI Chemical Peels, phenol, is the most effective ingredient for lightening areas of the skin that have been darkened by sun damage or due to conditions such as melasma. It can also help treat freckles.

Keratosis Pilaris

Keratosis pilaris is a common skin condition in which dead skin cells clog the hair follicles, creating bumps that resemble the skin of a plucked chicken. The salicylic acid used in VI Chemical Peels effectively break down those bumps to reduce their appearance.


VI Chemical Peels are commonly used to treat acne to great effect. This treatment is a multi-pronged approach that addresses several aspects of acne including:

  • Reduction of oil production
  • Killing bacteria
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Deep exfoliation
  • Reduction of the number of clogged pores

VI Chemical Peel Efficacy

When applied on a regular basis, VI Chemical Peels are extremely effective. Visible results can be seen after just one treatment, and with ongoing treatments scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart, those results can continue to improve. While one treatment does show results, we advise continued treatments to see the best and most long-term results.
