Uses  
The VI Peel is ideal for:
  • treating hyperpigmentation and melasma
  • reversing sun damage and signs of aging
  • improving skin tone and texture
  • clearing Acne & reducing Acne scars
  • stimulating collagen growth and elastin production, for younger looking skin
  • reducing the appearance of pores
Benefits  
There are many benefits, including:
  • The VI Peel is safe for all skin types and ethnicities;
  • It is the only peel safe to use on the eye area, neck, chest and hands;
  • No skin preconditioning is necessary. See pre- and post-peel skin care, below;
  • It is virtually discomfort free. Clients typically experience a warm, tingly sensation that quickly subsides;
  • There is little or no downtime. The actually peeling process lasts 2 to 3 days, and is easily managed with the post-peel kit that is included with the peel;
  • You'll see beautiful results in just one week.
Beautiful Results
Within One Week!
Ingredients  
The VI Peel consists of a synergistic blend of five acids that no other peel offers:
  • TCA  - Trichloroacetic Acid for penetration, deep scar healing;
    stimulates collagen growth;
  • Retin-A  - an acid derived from vitamin A to combat wrinkles;
  • Salicylic Acid  - this beta hydroxy acid (BHA) is an exfoliant;
  • Phenol  - has antiseptic and anesthetic properties;
    aids in skin penetration;
  • Vitamin C  - ascorbic acid has antioxidant and mild exfoliation properties
Contraindications
Those with allergies to any of the ingredients above and women who are pregnant or nursing should not undergo a VI Peel.

Pre-Peel Skin Care
The best results are achieved by having a consultation with a skin care professional to discuss the peel pre- and post-peel home care to acheive the best results from the VI Peel and to maintain those benefits.

Avoid all peels and exfoliating treatments, including laser, for a month prior to your VI Peel.

Exfoliating products (glycolic acid, vitamin C, retin-A, etc.) should be discontinued for a week before your VI Peel. Likewise, do not use any abrasive products on your face [and/or chest or hands] that would cause mechanical exfoliation. Men should not shave the day of the VI Peel

 

Post-Peel Skin Care
The VI Peel has just given you the equivalent of multiple peels. So, for a week or two following the peel it's best to avoid exfoliating products like glycolic acid and retinols. Avoid direct and prolonged exposure to the sun, and we recommend you use a sunscreen at all times. Do not exercise for the duration of the peel because your skin is sensitized and perspiration will irritate your skin.

Resist the temptation of pulling your peeling skin off it's important that you let it peel naturally, or scarring and skin discoloration may occur. Manage your appearance instead with the included post-peel kit. In case of irritation, EBAC's Aloe Cort cream may be applied to the affected area (keep in mind that Aloe Cort cream will stop the peeling process where it is applied.) Never use over-the-counter hydrocortisone creams, as they are not formulated for facial skin.

The benefits of the VI Peel can be prolonged by maintaining a home care regimen that is appropriate for your skin, as recommended by a skin care professional, such as those at Eastbay Acne & Skin Care Clinic.

* the VI Peel may only be applied to unbroken skin, and acne skin that is under control. It may not be suitable for extremely sensitive skin, and for people on certain medications. Some skin care protocols must be discontinued a week prior to and after a VI Peel treatment.

A personal consultation with our physician and/or estheticians will help you determine if the VI Peel can benefit your skin. VI Peel consultations are free for existing EBAC clients; the standard consultation fee of $30 is charged to new clients.
