I have been having your peels for the past year with great appreciation. People are amazed when they hear my age. I highly recommend the magic of the VI Peel. — Jane

Would you like radiant, youthful skin in just one week?

The VI Peel at Spa Greystone is designed to reverse the signs of aging and sun damage on the skin. VI Peel contains a synergistic blend of gentle yet powerful ingredients suitable for all skin types.

A single VI Peel at our Birmingham-Hoover, Alabama day spa and laser center will achieve restorative and painless repair of damaged skin, including sun damage and acne, and add a healthy glow to the skin. Best of all, VI Peel is a true aging preventive for younger skin with no visible damage.

VI Peel tackles skin problems at the cellular level rather than just burning skin off. Thanks to the concerted actions of its many acids and vitamins, it helps erase fine lines and wrinkles, shrink enlarged pores and build collagen and elastin, which tighten skin.

Is the VI Peel painful?

The VI peel is almost painless and has very few complications and hazards, yet produces dramatic visible results in just days with little downtime. You will feel a slight stinging sensation for a few seconds which subsides completely almost immediately. The peel is applied topically, numbing of the skin takes place after the first pass. Some patients may feel more comfortable using a fan or cold air breeze.

Is there any downtime after the VI Peel?

Normal activities can be resumed immediately after the peel. It takes about 4 days after you finish peeling for the skin to return to its normal PH and to see the final effects. The skin will look luminous and glowing. Hyper-pigmentation will be improved or gone, depending on the amount of damage. Tone and texture will be improved with an overall more youthful appearance.

Will VI Peel cause my skin to peel?

The skin peeling associated with the VI Peel is a light, fluffy peel that will start on day 3 and generally be finished by the end of day 4. The peeling is easily hidden by moisturizer. In some cases, the peel is virtually invisible. The peel can be modulated to produce a deeper, more aggressive peel, if necessary, depending on your skin condition.

The skin will look slightly tan, yellow or red immediately after the peel. On days 1 and 2 the skin will feel slightly tighter, with no visible signs of having had a peel. Any pigmented areas might appear slightly darker. On approximately day 3, you will begin to peel. The first signs of peeling usually begin around the mouth area and continue for a day or two. With the use of the Vi Derm moisturizer, you may go about your usual daily routine. By day 6 or day 7 you will be done peeling and the results are dramatic! If a more aggressive peel was performed, a secondary peel might occur around day seven.

What kind of maintenance will my skin need?

Like everything else, skin needs maintenance. The VI Peel's results will last as long as skin care is maintained, sun exposure is moderate and preventive aging with the VI Peel is performed three or four times per year. In between treatments, use the Vi Derm Skin Care System for optimal results. The peel may be repeated as often as every two weeks, if necessary, for damaged skin. Spa Greystone's skincare professionals will evaluate your skin, as well as your goals and expectations, and make an appropriate recommendation for ongoing skin care.

Can darker skin types be treated?

The many innovations that created the VI Peel combine to enable the entire continuum of skin types to enjoy the benefits of the peel. For the first time, African-American and darker skin types such as some Asian and Latin skins can experience anti-aging and restorative skin care previously unavailable.
