Follow me through my at-home chemical peels: see photos, read my stories, learn about peels and recovery, know what to expect from AHA, BHA, TCA, and other chemical peels to improve acne, acne scars, fine lines, sun spots, age spots, oily skin, freckles, sun damage, and wrinkles. I am neither a doctor nor a licensed esthetician. Use chemical peels at your own risk, and remember that my experience should not take the place of professional advice.
I'm ready for my next peel, and I'm toying with the ViPeel. I’m dying to try it, but no one has been able tell
me the exact percentage of each ingredient or the pH level, and that concerns me! Who’s done the ViPeel or has inside info? Can you post your feedback?
Here are the ingredients and comments from the ViPeel website:
TCA - Trichloroacetic Acid for penetration, deep scar
stimulates collagen growth;
Retin-A - acid derived from vitamin A to combat
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
This peels appears to take about a week from start to finish, so prepare for downtime.
The average cost for the Vi Peel is about $300, depending on your location.

This person said it was the strongest peel offered by the spa--and that it's not for everyone.
Really interested to hear what others have to say about this one!
