The VI Peel is a very popular chemical skin peel that we offer our patients at PHI Clinic. It is effective in: treating acne and acne scarring, improving tone and texture of the skin, stimulating collagen growth, treating sun damaged skin, reversing signs of ageing, treating hyperpigmentation, treating melasma and reducing the appearance of pores.
This treatment works on a cellular level, using vitamins and acids to encourage the body to build up collagen, removing damaged skin, and refining the top layer of skin to give you a smoother, radiant, more youthful appearance.Book consultation
The VI Peel is said to be painless; patients describe the experience as a warm and tingly sensation which doesn’t last very long at all and causes minimal, if any, discomfort. The treatment is suitable for all skin types and ethnicities and unlike many other peels, it is safe to use around the eye area, on the neck, chest and hands. There is virtually no downtime (the peeling process lasts approximately 2-3 days) and you will see great results within 1-2 weeks after treatment. This revolutionary treatment is noticeably effective after just one session without lasers or surgery due to its restorative nature, making it one of the best anti-ageing treatments out there.
It is vital that you take care of the new skin exposed by the treatment; wear sunscreen and cut back on rigorous exfoliation to avoid redness and irritation.

When these special cells are damaged or unhealthy, melanin production is affected; some disorders affect the entire body, whereas others just affect patches of skin. High levels of melanin cause darker skin, low levels cause lighter skin, and total or partial lack of melanin re...Read on Book consultation
